The Ducati Monster 1100 EVO maintenance schedule and service intervals — sourced from the owner’s manual.
This maintenance schedule applies to all variants of the Ducati Monster 1100, including the 1100S and the 1100 EVO ABS. They’re different spec bikes but the maintenance is the same (the ABS and better suspension doesn’t have any different requirements). It applies to the Monster from 2009-2013, but to spell it out, this is the maintenance schedule for:
- 2009 Ducati Monster 1100, 1100 S, 1100 Evo ABS
- 2010 Ducati Monster 1100, 1100 S, 1100 Evo ABS
- 2011 Ducati Monster 1100, 1100 S, 1100 Evo ABS
- 2012 Ducati Monster 1100, 1100 S, 1100 Evo ABS
- 2013 Ducati Monster 1100, 1100 S, 1100 Evo ABS
The Monster 1100 was the last of the air-cooled big Ducati Monster models, before the Ducati Monster 1200 took over with its huge host of improvements (and if you politely ignore the Ducati Monster 797, which had a later heyday… and which was smaller, anyway).
The Monster 1100 was first launched in 2009. You can buy it in a number of different flavours, including:
- Monster 1100 S — lighter Marchesini wheels and higher-spec Öhlins front and rear suspension
- Monster 1100 S ABS
- Monster 1100 Evo — as above plus ABS, a host of rider aids (including cornering ABS), and a wet clutch (controversially)
- Ducati Monster Diesel (which was a cosmetically different 1100 Evo)
You also see it called Ducati Monster 1100 EVO ABS, though ABS was standard on the EVO (maybe not in every market).
Regular maintenance for the Ducati Monster 1100

|Check the engine oil level|
|Check the brake and clutch fluid levels|
|Check tyre pressure and wear|
|Check the drive chain tension and lubrication|
|Check the brake pads. If necessary, contact your dealer to renew pads|
