Who knew monsters could be so fun? At least that’s Ducati’s take on things, made evident by their all-new 2018 Monster 821. It’s an excitingly sporty and agile iteration this go around, designed for maximum riding pleasure but with more than enough power behind the throttle to get the adrenal glands pumping.

Paying homage to the iconic Monster 900, the 821 received some updates while still managing to remain true to itself. We’re talking, of course, about a redesigned tank and tail resulting in slim and agile lines and a TFT color instrument panel compete with Ducati Quick Shift if desired. Also, under the saddle is a powerful Testastretta 11° engine complete with an output of 109 horses and full torque at all speeds. She also comes stocked with a Brembo braking system, a refined suspension outfitted with a 43 mm front fork and adjustable shock out the back, and the Ducati Safety Pack which includes a Bosch ABS and Ducati Traction Control. Finally, depending on your personal style, the Monster 821 is available in either yellow, red, or matte black.
