Ducati Monster 821 Test Ride

Review of the refreshed midsized Monster

The Monster 821 introduced in 2014 with its liquid-cooled Testastretta 11º motor, which for 2018 to mark the model’s 25th birthday has now been updated to be Euro 4 compliant, while also refreshed aesthetically in the tyre tracks of its bigger Monster 1200 sister, by adopting all the styling modifications that were incorporated in that when it was released in its current revamped form one year ago.

The debut of the revamped Monster 821 represents a roll of the dice for the Italian company’s management, who are counting on it remaining the best-selling model of any across their entire six-platform lineup (Panigale, Diavel, Hypermotard, Supersport, Multistrada and Monster, in case you wondered – Scrambler is supposedly a separate brand).
