Ducati India has launched the all new Monster 821 in India
at an introductory price of Rs 9.51 lakh (Ex-Showroom India). 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.
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 paint job that so
many Monsteristi have revered in the past. It will also be available in Ducati
Red and Black colour options.
The Euro 4 compliant
liquid-cooled Testastretta 11° engine delivers a maximum power of 109 hp at
9250 rpm without sacrificing an extremely favourable torque curve. Thanks to
its 8.8 kgm (86 Nm) of torque at 7750 rpm, the 821’s engine guarantees fun and
usability that are within reach of all.
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.
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 bookings for the new Monster 821 are now
open and deliveries will start by the first week of June across all Ducati
dealerships in Delhi – NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Kochi &
