Ducati launched its much-acclaimed Monster in December 2020. There are two variants one is standard Monster, and the other is Monster +.
While we could see the new Ducati Monster on its Italian website, which starts from € 11,290 and Monster + € 11,590, the production has just begun.
As Ducati mentions, ” First look at the new Monster as production starts in the Ducati Factory! Ducati Corse riders Francesco Bagnaia, Enea Bastianini and Luca Marini get up close.”
Let’s take a look at the new Ducati Monster 2021.
The Monster mounts the 937 cc L-twin Testastretta 11 ° engine, with desmodromic distribution and Euro 5 homologated.
Compared to the previous 821, it increases in displacement, power, torque and decreases in weight (-2.4 kg) to contribute to the motorcycle’s lightness and offer better driveability.
- Honda’s patent for brain communication
- Aprilia files trademark for its electric ‘eSR1.’
- Kawasaki Japan brings a new paint scheme for Z900.
It now delivers 111 hp at 9,250 rpm with maximum torque of 9.5 Nm delivered at just 6,500 rpm, proving efficient and responsive in throttle response.
The engine is load-bearing, and a Front Frame is connected to it, which conceptually incorporates that of the Panigale V4. Made of aluminium.
It is 4.5 kg lighter than the Monster 821 trellis frame with a 60% lightening, contributing to the bike’s overall lightness.
The Superbike-derived frame is an aluminium Front Frame and helps keep the weight down by just 166 kg when dry.
The reduction in curb weight compared to a Monster 821 is 18 kg.
The rear subframe – made with modern GFRP (Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer) technology – drops by 1.9 kg.
And lightness is a crucial ingredient to having a comfortable, manageable, fast, but above all, fun bike.
And because it undoubtedly has the distinctive elements that characterise this model: the tank shaped like a “bison back”, the circular fan “embedded in the shoulders“, the clean tail, the engine at the centre of the scene.
Narrow hips and front frame ends at the height of the vertical head. It helps you put your feet on the ground quickly when the bike is stationary.
Design characterised by simple and clean lines. An engine, a saddle, a tank and a handlebar. Monster is what it takes to drive and have fun, nothing more.
In a short while, we will see the new Ducati Monster 2021 arriving in the international showroom.
The new Monster comes in multiple paint schemes like the Ducati Red, Dark Stealth, GP Red wheels and Aviator Grey.
