Ducati 821 Monster 2018

"E a Mostro !". According to the history of the Ducati Museum, a worker thus expressed his vision of a new roadster, seen in the workshops of Borgo Panigale. That was 25 years ago, and a short time later the Monster 900 captured the emotions of a crowd of bikers.. So many variations have passed and the Monster 821 is the one that best carries the banner today. The 797 allows you to discover; the 1200 are intended for the furious. This 821 average is the most consistent, combining a nice dose of bravery and design. She is evolving now, doing what is necessary to improve the details that may have gone wrong..

Ducati cultivates the image of this iconic motorcycle, striving to always relate it to the first of the line. The spirit remains, even though a lot has changed. Especially in the stomach. But the Monster is still attractive, compact, villainous, envied. From the previous chapter to this one, the visual differences are present but not obvious. The manufacturer is careful with this register, highlighting what will appeal to amateurs.
The line is instantly recognizable, while bits of Monster 1200 R are expressed here and there. In the form of the exhausts and the rear shell. The stern expresses more force.
The Monster 821 II gains a new tank, smaller than one liter. The meter goes to a higher level, equipping itself like its more upscale siblings with a TFT matrix for a beautiful full-color display – allowing it to fit a gear indicator engaged and a fuel gauge. The lighthouse, round as it likes, is entirely LED. On the frame side, the minimalist tubular trellis does not change, with its anchoring on the engine to take advantage of its rigidity. At the back, it’s something else. The large plates where all the footrests were placed have disappeared. The driver’s controls are now anchored on reduced plates, while the elements for the passenger are hooked to a new rear frame. Enthusiasts will continue their investigations on the side of plastic conceals, noting the new shape of the element overhanging the tubing escaping from the rear cylinder and the smaller cover in the opening of the twin.

A Monster lives more than it drives. The engine promises good health and life. Apart from the digestion of his breath by the modified exhausts, nothing changes inside. Except for the couple who lose a tenth of a mkg. Each will find at its disposal the same force as yesterday, namely 109 horses (112 on the old 821 but measured under other conditions) distributed by desmodromic mechanics with two cylinders, 8 valves and a few liters of coolant. The torque retains a more than sufficient 8.8 mkg.
The force is transmitted via a 6-speed gearbox, which can now be assisted by a shifter Up&Down optional. From the throttle to the final rendering, the electronic equipment is renewed. The 3-level ABS, 8-way traction control, and the 3 Riding Modes that go over it all (Urban, Touring and Sport) will be present and active..

The Ducati Monster 821 will change its mood via its Riding Modes; the driver will entrust the rigor of handling to the chassis. Alas, still no single-sided arm for the mid-Monster. But Kayaba suspension elements for the 43mm inverted fork and Sachs for the monoshock. Braking comes from Brembo, with M4.32 4-piston calipers for 320mm discs up front. There is a 245mm disc and a two-piston caliper for the rear. Seriousness, allowing peace of mind during heavy decelerations.

The Monster 821 spent a few evenings with the 1200s and it shows. This made her mature, made her realize that she could demand more, and assert a status of more prominent ball princess. She gained a kilo in the binge and lost a couple flick. Too little to make any difference to the conduct. Today here is a polished Monster, which will distribute as much fun with more skillful forms.
