Ducati announces the brand new Monster 821

Ducati has announced the new Monster 821, a mid-size entry for the third generation of the iconic naked model and the latest chapter in the Bologna-built motorcycle’s story. 

The 821 follows the successful unveiling of the new-generation Monster 1200 at the Milan International Motorcycle show in November.

Having delivered over 290,000 Monsters since the original concept more than 20 years ago, the 821 uses the new chassis and muscular styling of the Monster 1200.

Powered by the latest edition of Ducati’s 821 Testastretta 11° engine, the new Monster combines 112hp and 65.9ft-lb of torque with a 179.5kg – 395.7lb (dry weight) overall package. Ducati believes its “stylish mix of minimalism and performance paves the way back to the original essence of the Monster concept, where less-is-more and made-in-Italy combine to create a motorcycle lifestyle”.

It goes on: “High-spec brakes, excellent suspension and stylish componentry merge with Ducati’s best-yet ergonomics to offer the Italian manufacturer’s most attractive mid-range Monster ever. Super comfortable and with an innovative adjustable seat height, the model also combines eight-level traction control, three-level ABS and three-level ride-by-wire into Ducati’s user-friendly, press-button riding modes.”

Available in UK Ducati Dealerships from July, the Monster 821 Dark is presented in dark stealth with black frame and black wheels with an SRP of £8795, while the Monster 821 is dressed in Ducati red with red frame and black wheels or star white silk with red frame and matte red wheels with an SRP of £8995.
