Ducati Monster 821 launch

MCN Senior Road Tester Adam Child is at the world launch of Ducati`s new Monster 821 in Bologna, Italy. A short spin this evening will be followed by a full day of riding the new naked middleweight tomorrow.

This is the latest Monster to come from the Ducati factory, hot on the heels of the all-new 1200 Monster earlier this year. The new middle Monster uses the water-cooled 821 v-twin from the Hypermotard, but with revised fuelling and different exhaust. This means peak power is 112bhp @ 9250rpm with peak torque at 65.9ftlb at 7500rpm.

It shares a very similar tubular steel trellis half-chassis to that of the larger Monster, using the engine as a fully stressed member. The swing-arm is new, and a conventional double-sided unit rather than the single sider found on the pricier 1200. The 43mm Kayaba fork up front is non-adjustable, awhile the Sachs single unit on the rear is fully adjustable.

The new Monster comes with three rider modes, Sport, Touring and Urban, and Ducati`s Safety Pack (DSP), which includes three-level ABS controlled by Bosch, and eight-level Ducati Traction Control.
