A new monster has been unleashed by the boys from Bologna. The new Ducati Monster 821 is a mid-size addition to the third-generation iconic naked bike range, following the unveiling of the Monster 1200 at last year’s EICMA show in Milan.
The 821 maintains the Monster’s signature look, while using the new chassis and muscular styling of the Monster 1200. Powered by the latest version of Ducati’s 821 Testastretta 11° engine, the bike combines 112 hp with 179.5 kg. The brand’s eight-level traction control, three-level ABS, three-level Ride-by-Wire and press-button Riding Modes are standard, as are high-spec brakes and adjustable seat height.
The Monster 821 Dark is presented in dark stealth with black frame/wheels, while the standard 821 is in Ducati red with red frame and black wheels, or star white silk with red frame and matte red wheels. Both red and white liveries come with colour-matched single-seat covers.
