Ducati has unveiled the new Monster 821 ahead of its debut at the 2017 EICMA Show in Italy, next month. Apart from a Euro IV powertrain, the new Monster 821 also benefits from a slew of cosmetic and technological updates. Here is a photo gallery of the 2018 Ducati Monster 821 –
For 2018, Ducati has updated the Monster 821 with a streamlined body and modern touches like an LED headlamp and colour instrument cluster.
Styling cues like exposed trellis frame, muscular fuel tank and the twin-pipe exhaust give the Monster 821 a raw character.
The TFT colour display which now includes gear indicator and fuel gauge. The fuel lid clasp on the tank harks back to the original M900.
At the heart of the Monster 821 is the same liquid-cooled L-twin Testastretta engine, although the output is slightly lower at 107bhp and 86Nm of torque.
The engine is mated to a six-speed transmission, with a slipper clutch and a quick shifter which allows clutchless upshifts and downshifts.
The electronics package includes three riding modes, a three-level ABS and an eight-level traction control system.
Prices start at GBP 9,895 (Rs 8.47 lakhs) for the red bike, while the black and the yellow paint schemes cost an additional GBP 200 (Rs 17,130).
