What’s new for 2018?
The new 2018 Ducati Monster 821 is already available for sale in international markets. For 2018, the new Monster 821 has been upgraded to include aesthetic and functional features first introduced on the Monster 1200. The motorcycle gets a more streamlined, agile look with fully redesigned tank and tail, Euro 4 compliant engine, an all-new silencer and a headlight that is both classic and contemporary. Also making its debut on the mid-size Monster is the colour TFT display with selected gear and fuel indicators, while available accessories include the Ducati Quick Shift up/down system.
The Monster 821 is powered by the 821 cc twin-cylinder Desmodromic Testastretta 11 Euro 4 compliant engine which delivers a maximum power of 109 hp at 9250 rpm and a maximum torque of 86 Nm at 7750 rpm.
The motorcycle is expected to carry a premium over the previous generation model which was discontinued from the Indian market back in June 2017. The launch event, as aforementioned, will commence at 12:00 PM on Ducati India’s official Twitter handle. Don’t forget to tune in for all the latest updates!
