In 1994, when Ducati launched the first Monster ever, little did they know that it will end up becoming the best thing Ducati had ever done. Having sold 2,90,000 Monsters since its inception, it is essential for Ducati to make sure that anything that joins this reputed family has shoulders that can carry on the legacy it needs to carry to pass it on to the next generation.
The Monster 821 will take the charge from Monster 1200 that was launched in November 2013 and will sit comfortably in the mid-size segment. The new model will carry on the character the iconic 1200 had using the new chassis and muscular styling along with latest design and premium components. The perfect blend of style and the new age technology with the rawness and the naked look of the Monster will ensure that it fits the lifestyle of a hard-core biker and also an elite who wants something to match his impeccable sense of style.
The Monster 821 will be a true-blue Italian marvel with its high-spec brakes, excellent suspension and stylish components that have been married to ergonomics Ducati is known for making it the most attractive mid-range Monster ever.
