When we talk about sport bikes the brand name Ducati has unique charm to it like Ferrari has when it comes to sports car, surprisingly products from both brands look amazing in Red. Yes the recently launched Ducati Monster 821 does sport that colour too but the reverent yellow is the highlight here for Monsteristi’s . Coming to the price point, Ducati launched the all new Monster 821 in India for just INR 9.51 lakhs (ex-Showroom). The bike is Euro 4 compliant and powered by liquid-cooled Testastretta 11° engine that delivers power of 109 hp at 9250 rpm & 86 Nm of torque at 7750 rpm. The all new Monster 821 is more streamlined, has an agile look with a fully redesigned tank and tail, an all-new exhaust and a headlight that is both classic and iconic. Also making its debut on the new Monster 821 is the colour TFT display with an indicator of the current gear, fuel level and the classic Ducati yellow, red and black colour options. One of the accessories available for the Monster 821 is the Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down, an electronic system derived from racing that makes it possible to change gears without the use of the clutch.
The Monster 821 also features the Ducati Safety Pack, which comprises of Bosch 9.1MP ABS system 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, Ducati Traction Control and Power Modes, letting riders transform the new Monster 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 a rear monoshock with spring preload adjustment. The new Monster 821 comes shod with a Pirelli Diablo Rosso III 120/70 tyre on the front and 180/55 on the rear.
The Monster 821 pays homage to the legacy of the Monster 900, which over 25 years ago revolutionised the motorcycle world, embodying the essence of true naked sport. Not only that, it hosts several aesthetic and functional features drawn from the flagship Monster 1200, making it a perfect amalgamation of style, sophistication and performance. On this the Managing Director of Ducati India Sergi Canovas Garriga, said, “For the last 25 years, the Monster has consistently delighted biking enthusiasts across the world. This year is the 25th anniversary of the Monster and we’re very proud to introduce the new Monster 821 in India, in this special year. The new Monster 821 has been designed with the aim of creating a slim and a sporty motorcycle which highlights the original concept of “Sport Naked” and gives maximum riding pleasure.”
