Ducati Monster 821 Latest Updates

The Monster is Ducati’s single largest selling range worldwide, characterized by muscular design and an exposed engine and trellis frame.

The Monster line has had numerous variations over the years, since it was first launched in 1993, from entry level 400cc Monsters to top of the line 130PS multivalve, water-cooled superbike-engined versions.

The Monster 821 will be the replacement for the existing Ducati 795 and the Ducati 796 and will be the new entry level Monster offering in the Indian market. 2015 Ducati Monster 821

Looks and Styling

The Monster 821 follows trademark design cues of the Monster family, with a muscular, sporty line, characterised by the L-twin engine and unique exposed steel trellis frame.

The imposing 17.5-litre sculpted metal tank presents a muscular image, emphasized by a narrow waistline and a compact headlamp, giving a friendly full frontal appearance. Pirelli Diablo Rosso II rubber with racing derived profile on the ten-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels – the same design as the Panigale and the Multistrada – are said to even increase damping capability.

Drop dead gorgeous Monster 821

The Monster 821 uses 43mm Kayaba front forks up front with a  single Sachs unit on the rear, adjustable in spring preload and rebound damping, attached directly to the rear cylinder and operating through a die-cast aluminium, double sided swingarm.

The Monster also offers a choice of three pre-set Riding Modes: Sport, Touring and Urban. Each Riding Mode is pre-programmed to instantly change engine character, ABS and traction control intervention – even while riding.Monster 821
