Ducati India is launching the 2018 version of their popular streetfighter offering into the Indian market today – the Ducati Monster 821. With this model Ducati is doing first of its kind launch on its twitter handle only. The new model by Ducati comes as a celebration of the Monster range of motorcycles completing 25 years. In terms of visual changes, the most evident one is the new headlamp cluster at the front which bears resemblance to latest Monster 1200. The fuel tank has been chiselled to give a more muscular look and complimenting that approach is the tail section which has been made to look sharper than before. There are a few changes on the mechanical front as well. The bike continues to be powered by the same 821 cc, Testastretta L-twin engine but now it has been worked upon to be BS-IV emission norm compliant. In the Indian market, the bike will compete against the likes of the Triumph Street Triple S, Kawasaki Z900 and the Suzuki GSX-S750. Here are the details of the new Ducati Monster 821 from the live launch.
