The new Monster 821 packs in a lot of fresh features to make it significantly different from the outgoing model
Ducati has just introduced the Monster 821 globally. The street fighter has been unveiled on the occasion of completion of 25 years of the Ducati Monster range. The Ducati Monster made its appearance for the first time ever at the 1992 Cologne show. The Monster 821 has been based on the Monster 900 and comes as more of a cosmetic update.
Speaking of specific changes, the new Ducati Monster 821 gets a sharp tail end that has taken its inspiration from the 1992 model. The fuel tank of the bike is also redesigned and resembles the one that is fitted in the bigger Monster 1200. The front end has been fitted with a rounded headlamp that is integrated with LED DRLs (Daytime Running Lights).
One of the prime highlights of the Ducati Monster 821 is the new yellow paint scheme in which it is being offered. The trellis frame on the said colour option comes drenched in black and looks appealing. Besides this, the motorcycle will be available in two more shades of matte black and red. The new Ducati Monster 821 now features a TFT display that looks really impressive.
Coming to the powertrain, the Ducati Monster 821 comes powered by the same 821cc engine from the previous model and is now Euro-IV compliant. The fuel injected motor develops a maximum power output of 109 bhp along with a peak torque of 86 Nm. Gearbox is the same six-speed unit.
The stopping power to the Monster 821 is taken care of with the help of twin 320mm disc brakes upfront along with a single 245mm disc brake at the rear. Other features of the Ducati Monster 821 include an eight level traction control system, a switchable ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) and three riding modes. The said equipment comes under the Ducati safety Pack.
The Ducati Monster 821 will hopefully make its entry to Indian shores at a price close to Rs. 11 lakh (ex-showroom).
