Ducati presents the first of five new models for the coming season: the Monster 821. The iconic naked motorcycle promises much rider friendliness for women motorcycle riders and is offered in an updated version to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the original model introduced in 1992. The Ducati Monster 821 inherits all the character and charm of the first Monster 900, the model that injected new life in the naked racers’ segment – by successfully combining high performance, agility, and rider-friendliness.
The Monster 821 changes its shape by adopting the design and functional features introduced in the Monster 1200: a sleek, streamlined design with completely redesigned tank and tail end, inspired by the 1992 version. A new racing silencer and headlight – both classic and contemporary, are also part of the new design. For a clear view of all necessary information a colour TFT display is also making its début – provided with selected gear and fuel indicators. The Ducati Quick Shift up/down and the Ducati Multimedia Systems are now available as accessories, to further enhance the already excellent riding experience offered by the 821.
The 821 is inspired by the famous Monster 900, whose 25th anniversary is celebrated this year – Slim design and performance always under control thanks to the Ducati Safety Pack – The Monster 821 is the first of five new models in the 2018 Model Year
The Monster comes back in the historic Ducati Yellow color that charmed so many Monster fans in the past. This color, available for the 821 only, completes the Red and dynamic Matte Black color range.
The 109 HP and 9250 rpm of the liquid-cooled twin cylinder Testastretta offer rider-friendly thrills; thanks to its 8.8 kgm (86 Nm) torque at 7750 rpm, the 821 guarantees exciting performance, comfortable riding and unmatched fun.
The Ducati Monster 821 also features the Ducati Safety Pack, which comprises Bosch ABS and Ducati Traction Control, both of which have adjustable intervention levels. The Riding Modes ensures easy adjustment of ABS, DTC and Power Modes (controlling peak power and type of delivery), transforming the 821 into three different motorcycles, each with a distinct personality.
High performance, agility, and rider-friendliness – the New Ducati Monster 821
