A new, upgraded 2021 Ducati Monster has been revealed! This upgrade aims to provide the fierce power of the Monster at a much lower weight.
It sports a 937cc Testaretta V-twin engine that produces 111 horsepower and 69 lb-ft of torque. Even though it has a more powerful engine than the previous Monster incarnations, its dry weight is only 366 lbs (166 kg)! Its agility is on a Monster level, thanks to the implementation of the aluminum front frame present on Panigale.
Other juicy new features include:
- Full-color TFT display
- Traction control
- Launch control
- Wheelie control
- Quick shifter with a lighter and more manageable clutch
- Three riding modes
When it comes to suspension and braking on the new Ducati Monster, we are not short on surprises. The suspension is powered by the 43mm USD fork and a rear mono-shock.
On the other hand, the pleasure of stopping power goes to the piston caliper 320mm disc on the front wheel and piston 245mm disc on the back wheel.
This new iteration of the Ducati Monster will come in Standard and “+” editions. The “+” edition adds minor visual updates, such as a small front fairing and a seat cover.
What about the prices, though? Well, the standard edition costs $11,895 (€9,812/£8,880) and the “+” edition costs $12,195 (€10,060/£9,105).
