2021 Ducati Monster Makes Its Way To India-Priced At INR 10.99 Lakh
The Ducati Monster is one of the most well-known naked motorcycles, with a devoted following. However, in comparison to its more modern and lighter competitors, the Monster began to feel a little obsolete. Ducati revealed the highly revised Monster last year, and now the Italian bikemaker has released the 2021 Monster at INR 10.99 Lakh, keeping true to its promise of bringing in 12 new models in India this year. The Monster Plus will set you back INR 11.24 lakh with a flyscreen and a pillion seat cover.
The engine is one of the show’s main draws, as it’s the same one found in the Hypermotard and Multistrada 950. The Euro5-compliant 937cc L-twin Testastretta 11-degree engine is a substantial upgrade over the previous iteration’s 821 powerplants. Despite having a larger displacement, it is 2.5 kg lighter! Ducati gets 111 horsepower at 9250 rpm and 93 Nm at 6500 rpm with this new powerplant.
The torque curve is much broader as a result of the increased displacement, making the bike much easier to ride. The engine is paired with a new 6-speed gearbox that comes standard with Ducati Quick Shift Up/Down quick-shifter. The new Monster’s suspension consists of a non-adjustable 43mm USD fork and a preload-adjustable monoshock. Front brakes are Brembo M4.32 callipers, and the 2021 model rides on Pirelli Diablo Rosso 3 rubber.
It’s a modern-day Ducati, so it’s jam-packed with rider aids. It has three riding modes (Sport, Urban, and Touring), as well as Cornering ABS, Traction Control, and Wheelie Control, all of which may be adjusted to various levels of involvement. And don’t forget about launch control! The bike also gets a colour TFT dash with a very practical style that draws inspiration from the Streetfighter and Panigale.
The 2021 Ducati Monster appears to be more small, modern, and unique than before! The internet was abuzz with varied reactions from fans shortly after it was unveiled. Some people praised the new Monster, while others wished Ducati had kept some of the iconic Monster features, such as the trellis frame. However, we believe it is a natural aspect of development, and the new Monster is surely attractive!
The 2021 Ducati Monster was designed from the ground up by Ducati, and it shows in every way. There’s a new LED headlamp with oval-shaped DRLs on either side. It has a contoured fuel tank, exposed bent pipes, upswept dual-exhaust, and a sleek tail section that make it look tiny from every viewpoint.
Because the model it replaced was significantly heavier than its competitors, Ducati dedicated special attention to the weight of the new Monster. Every component of the motorcycle has been meticulously engineered to be as light as feasible. The conversion from a steel trellis-style frame to a cast aluminium one is the most notable alteration from the Monsters of the past. The trellis has long been a symbol of Ducati’s design aesthetic.
The rear subframe is also drastically changed. What was formerly metal has been replaced with a super-strong glass-reinforced polymer. When compared to the Monster 821, the 2021 Ducati Monster weighs 18 kg less.
The 2021 Ducati Monster will be available in regular and Plus trims, with the latter including a small flyscreen and a passenger seat cover. There will be three colours available: red (obviously), matte black, and aviator grey, which is a gorgeous tint. For those who prefer bolder styling, there will be many decal packages and even prepainted semi-custom body panels available.
