Following the successful unveiling of the new generation Monster 1200, Ducati now introduces the Monster 821, a mid-size version of the exciting new model and the latest entry to the world of Monster.
More than two decades on from the Monster’s first unveiling, Ducati presents the iconic model’s latest generation middleweight, the 2015 Monster 821. Maintaining the stylish character made famous by the original concept, the model sports the same new chassis and muscular styling as the Monster 1200 and is designed with premium components and fully integrated with Ducati’s latest technologies.
Powered by the latest edition of Ducati’s immensely successful 821 Testastretta 11° engine, the accessible new Monster combines 112hp and 65.9ft-lb of torque with an impressively lightweight 179.5kg (395.7lb) (Dry weight) overall package. Super comfortable and with an innovative adjustable seat height, the model also combines class-leading electronics that include 8-level traction control, 3-level ABS and 3-level Ride-by-Wire into Ducati’s user-friendly, press-button Riding Modes.
The Monster 821 features premium componentry that include high-spec brakes with twin radially-mounted Brembo monobloc M4-32 calipers, gripping 320mm discs, excellent suspension from Kabaya (43mm forks) and Sachs (rear) and stylish 10-spoke Panigale-style light alloy wheels. Merged with Ducati’s best-yet ergonomics, the Italian manufacturer offers the most attractive mid-range Monster ever. The 2015 Monster 821 uses next generation technologies to create an enhanced rider/motorcycle relationship, delivering a high-adrenaline experience while constantly reassuring with the feeling of complete control and ergonomic integration.

The Dark is priced at £8,795 and is also available on Ducati TriOptions Finance from £109* per month.
