More Monsterous Than Ever Before
With this new Monster update, Ducati plans on taking a new approach to design and manufacturing with this new rendition coming in at a far lower weight. The Ducati Monster 821 is on its way out the door, and with that departure brings room for this new 2021 Monster featuring a 937cc Testaretta 11-degree v-twin engine capable of producing 111 horsepower and 69 lb-ft of torque.
Although this new bike has a much higher displacement and produces more power, it manages to shed a full 40 pounds off the outgoing 821 providing riders with a level of agility never before seen in the Monster lineup. The bike has always been a light and flickable beast, but Ducati has taken this a step further with its Panigale-derived aluminum front frame. We don’t have a wet weight stat to go off of (curse you, Ducati!) but we do know that this bike will be 366 pounds dry and can contrast that figure with the 821’s dry-weight.
