Ducati Australia has announced the RRPs for the new Monster 821 prior to its arrival and first deliveries in September.

The Monster 821 Dark Stealth will arrive at $15,990, the Monster 821 Red and Star White Silk will both be available for $16,490 (pricing don’t include dealer and statutory charges).

The three variants each come with their own unique characteristics:
– Monster 821 Dark Stealth; Black frame and wheels (no passenger seat cover).
– Monster 821 Red; Red frame with black wheels (with passenger seat cover).
– Monster 821 Star White Silk; Red frame with black wheels (with passenger seat cover).

Having delivered over 290,000 Monsters since the original concept more than 20 years ago, this essential new mid-size model maintains its stylish character using the new chassis and muscular styling of the Monster 1200 with premium components and full integration of Ducati’s latest performance, safety and comfort technologies.

Powered by the latest edition of Ducati’s very successful 821 Testastretta 11-degree engine, the highly accessible new Monster combines 112hp and 65.9ft-lb of torque with an impressively lightweight of just 179.5kg (dry).

High-spec brakes, excellent suspension and stylish componentry merge with Ducati’s best-yet ergonomics to offer the Italian manufacturer’s most attractive mid-range Monster ever.

Super comfortable and with an innovative adjustable height seat, the model also combines eight-level traction control (DTC), 3-level ABS and 3-level Ride-by-Wire power settings into Ducati’s user-friendly, press-button Riding Modes; Sport, Touring or Urban.

The Monster 821 uses next generation technologies to create an enhanced rider/motorcycle relationship, delivering a high-adrenaline experience while constantly reassuring with the feeling of complete control and ergonomic integration.
