Ducati has announced that it will launch the Monster 821, which shares its styling cues and chassis with its elder sibling, the Monster 1200. This is a mid-size variant introduced in the company's popular Monster series, following the unveiling of the new generation Monster 1200 at the Milan international motorcycle show in November last year.
The Monster 821 is powered by the Testastretta 11° engine, that churns out 112bhp of maximum power and peak torque output of 9.1kgm.
The Italian manufacturer offers a seat height adjuster and the new Monster also gets an eight-level traction control system, three-stage ABS and three different riding modes.
The Monster 821 Dark will be offered with a black frame and black wheels, while the Monster 821 standard will be dressed in Ducati red with red frame and black wheels or white with red frame and matte red wheels. Both red and white liveries are equipped with colour-matched single-seat covers.
