Following the successful launch of the Monster 1200, Ducati recently unveiled the latest addition to the family in the form of the Monster 821. Powering the attractive Italian package is a water-cooled 821 cc Testastretta 11-degree engine, which produces a claimed 112 horsepower and 65.9 lb-ft of torque.
We haven’t ridden the bike, or even seen it in person, but here’s what Ducati has to say: “High-spec brakes, excellent suspension and stylish componentry merge with Ducati’s best-yet ergonomics to offer the Italian manufacturer’s most attractive mid-range Monster ever. Super comfortable and with an innovative adjustable seat height, the model also combines eight-level traction control, three-level ABS and three-level Ride-by-Wire into Ducati’s user-friendly, press-button Riding Modes.” Someone in the PR department likes hyphens.
Ducati says the Monster 821 should be in dealerships in July.
