Ducati India has just launched the all new version of the Monster 821 with a lot of changes on the inside as well as on the outside with an introductory price tag of ₹9.51 lakh (ex-showroom).
To start with the updated design elements tend to make the Monster look a lot fresher. The company has changed the tank design, the tail section and the exhaust along with a new headlamp. The all new full-colour TFT instrumentation also adds to the feel of the new Monster 821.
The engine has seen some updates with chassis more or less untouched. Since the motor is now BS IV compliant, there is a slight change in output and the Testastretta now delivers 109Bhp of power and 86Nm of torque. The bike’s safety pack now includes ABS and traction control making it more standard and stable. Adding to this, the company has provided with switchable riding modes that can adjust various electronic aids including power output and throttle maps.
When it comes to the paint job, the new version of Monster 821 comes with an all new yellow colour body, amongst other colours.
At the launch, Sergi Canovas Garriga, Managing Director of Ducati India said, “For the last 25 years, the Monster has consistently delighted biking enthusiasts across the world. This year is the 25th anniversary of the Monster and we’re very proud to introduce the new Monster 821 in India, in this special year. The new Monster 821 has been designed with the aim of creating a slim and a sporty motorcycle which highlights the original concept of “Sport Naked” and gives maximum riding pleasure.”
