See photos of the all-new Ducati Monster 821 in the 2015 Ducati Monster 821 photo gallery. Read more in the 2015 Ducati Monster 821 first look article.
The Ducati Monster 821 sources the 821cc Testastretta 11° Twin, which also powers the Italian marque’s Hypermotard models.
The new Monster 821's liquid-cooled 821 Testastretta 11° engine claims 112 horsepower and 65.9 lb-ft torque.
Ducati’s familiar electronics suite is featured on the Monster 821 including: three-level ride-by-wire and ABS, along with an eight-level traction control system. The settings are keyed to Ducati’s Riding Mode format.
The 821 will be available in three colorways: Dark Stealth, with black frame and wheels; Ducati Red, with red frame and black wheels; and Star White Silk with red frame and red matte wheels.
Announcing this latest addition, Ducati touts that more than 290,000 Monsters have been delivered during its 23-year run.
This latest 821, along with the new-for-2014 1200 Monster, completes the transition from the once-defining Monster trait of an air-cooled engine to a liquid-cooled Twin.
While Ducati is yet to reveal the 821’s official specs, the running gear shows radial-mount Brembos, inverted fork and single shock.
The Ducati press announcement for the Monster 821 lists a claimed dry weight of 395.7 pounds (the 796 Monster claims a 369-pound dry weight).
The distinctive curves of the Monster 821 exhaust headers and right side silencers look similar to the 1200.
Expected in dealers this July, U.S. pricing for the new Monster is set at $10,995.
