When designing each bike, Ducati constantly aims to ensure maximum reliability and to reduce maintenance costs. A commitment that has made it possible to lengthen the times between Desmo Service scheduled maintenance checkups, during which valve clearance is checked and adjusted as needed, to 30,000 km for the Monster 1200 R. Even the simplest checkups like the Oil Service have reached 15,000 km or 12 months. A considerable range for high performance engines, which confirms the high quality standards adopted in the choice of materials and research and development processes.
Ducati is constantly investing in the technical training of its dealers: the specific expertise of the network of official Ducati Service points allows you to punctually perform all the operations necessary to keep every Ducati at its best, and advanced equipment like the Ducati Diagnosis System make it possible to update the software of every Ducati with the latest releases available to ensure the peak performance of electronic systems.
