A second generation, with single-sided swingarms was designed, and those were designated as "S" models, followed by a "2" or a "4" for the valves per cylinder, then an "R" on most models for marketing purposes. The S4 (916 engine) and S4R (996 engine) were left at that. The S2R models had the engine size (800 or 1000) further appended.

The third generation went back to "M" with engine size (696, 796, 1100).

As with anything Italian, special cases and additional inconsistencies will be found if you look.

What would be the Ducati nomenclature for my 2016 Monster 1200R?

All the numbers have a meaning in cars, their cylindric power or the model of the moto, I think that everybody knows that, even more, you can find the answer in the book of your moto. But your personal number of the moto is another story, there is a meaning for this. My number is 115 and it is having big importance, in case you want to know, I read about that on a site sunsigns.org, and I am afraid of what can happen if it is true. What do you think, maybe the meaning of may license numbers influence may life and the feature I'll have?
