Ducati introduces new Monster 821

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

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.
