UNIQUE CHARACTER. MATTE BLACK STYLE.

2020 Ducati Monster 821 Stealth:

NEW: ABS Bosch 9.1 MP, DTC, DQS, LED position light and tail light, USB power socket, flyscreen, passenger seat cover, TFT colour display.

25 years of Monster

The Monster 821 pays homage to the legacy of the Monster 900, which over 25 years ago revolutionised the motorcycle world. Agile and featuring sporty performance, it was designed for maximum riding enjoyment, at all times and in all conditions. The Monster 821 range has been rejuvenated with a new stealth version: matte black livery, updated graphics and front fairing give a unique character to the naked Ducati par excellence. The standard equipment, which includes adjustable fork and Ducati Quick Shift up/down, makes it even more effective on the road.

 

Back in 1992 Ducati presented that first, iconic Monster at the Cologne Motor Show. Now, 25 years on, the Monster 821 has received an impressive upgrade. The 821 inherits all the authenticity of that first Monster 900, combining perfect performance with outstanding rider-friendliness. Superb standard equipment, low ownership costs and an extensive accessory range make the Monster 821 the perfect everyday bike, yet give it that unique Ducati sport naked feel that is shared by every Monster.

Now, the Monster 821 has been upgraded to include aesthetic and functional features first introduced on the Monster 1200: a more streamlined, agile look with fully redesigned tank and tail, an all-new silencer and a headlight that is both classic and contemporary. Also making its debut on the mid-size Monster is the colour TFT display with selected gear and fuel indicators, while available accessories include the Ducati Quick Shift up/down system.

The Euro 4 compliant liquid-cooled Testastretta 11° engine delivers a maximum power of 109 hp (80 kW) at 9250 rpm. Thanks to its 8.8 kgm (86 Nm) of torque at 7750 rpm, the 821 offers exciting performance, easy riding and unmatched fun.

The Monster 821 also features the Ducati Safety Pack, which comprises Bosch ABS and Ducati Traction Control, both of which have adjustable intervention levels. Similarly, maximum power and throttle response can be adjusted via the Power Modes. Riding Modes allow easy adjustment of ABS, DTC and Power Modes, letting riders transform the 821 into three different motorcycles, each with a distinct personality.

Completing the impressive equipment array on the Monster 821 are the Brembo brakes, with dual 320 mm discs and M4-32 monobloc radial calipers up front. A refined suspension system includes a 43 mm fork at the front and an adjustable shock absorber at the rear.

The “Monster 821 stealth”, sports the exclusive black colour scheme with dedicated graphic, Adjustable 43 mm Kayaba forks, Nose fairing and DQS up/down.

2020 Ducati Monster 821 Stealth Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Iconic design

The volumes, silhouette, tank and headlight characterise the design of the Monster 821 and remain true to the original lines of the bike born in 1993 while revisiting them with a modern flair. The iconic tank comes with a fastening hook, just like the first Monster. The new stealth version features new graphics and the windshield: elements that give the new Monster 821 a unique and unmistakable character.

Testastretta 11° engine

Thanks to high maximum power and torque values, fluid delivery and a full torque curve at all speeds, the new Monster 821’s Testastretta 11° engine can guarantee performance and agility to the rider.

Endless excitement

The advanced materials and technologies of the Ducati Testastretta 11° engine allow for particularly long maintenance intervals and reduced running costs, calling for an oil change every 15,000 Km (or 12 months) and valve clearance control (Desmo Service) every 30,000 km.

Compact and sporty
The new Monster 821 was designed with the aim of creating a slim, simple and sporty motorcycle to highlight the original concept of “sport naked bike”.

Modern and contemporary
The front headlight of the new Monster 821, contemporary and technological, recalls the circular shape that has always characterised the design of each Monster.

Ducati Quick Shift up & down (DQS)
