Back in 1992 Ducati presented that first, iconic Monster at the Cologne Motor Show. Now, 25 years on, the Monster 821 has received an impressive upgrade. The 821 inherits all the authenticity of that first Monster 900, combining perfect performance with outstanding rider-friendliness. Superb standard equipment, low ownership costs and an extensive accessory range make the Monster 821 the perfect everyday bike, yet give it that unique Ducati sport naked feel that is shared by every Monster. Now, the Monster 821 has been upgraded to include aesthetic and functional features first introduced on the Monster 1200: a more streamlined, agile look with fully redesigned tank and tail, an all-new silencer and a headlight that is both classic and contemporary. Also making its debut on the mid-size Monster is the colour TFT display with selected gear and fuel indicators, while available accessories include the Ducati Quick Shift up/down system. The Euro 4 compliant liquid-cooled Testastretta 11 engine delivers a maximum power of 109 hp (80 kW) at 9250 rpm. Thanks to its 8.8 kgm (86 Nm) of torque at 7750 rpm, the 821 offers exciting performance, easy riding and unmatched fun. The Monster 821 also features the Ducati Safety Pack, which comprises Bosch ABS and Ducati Traction Control, both of which have adjustable intervention levels. Similarly, maximum power and throttle response can be adjusted via the Power Modes. Riding Modes allow easy adjustment of ABS, DTC and Power Modes, letting riders transform the 821 into three different motorcycles, each with a distinct personality. Completing the impressive equipment array on the Monster 821 are the Brembo brakes, with dual 320 mm discs and M4-32 monobloc radial calipers up front. A refined suspension system includes a 43 mm fork at the front and an adjustable shock absorber at the rear. The Monster 821 comes in three different colours: Ducati Red, Black and the classic Ducati Yellow which many a Monster fan has fallen in love with over the years.
