Ducati India has begun taking bookings for the 2021 Ducati Monster. We expect it to be launched in the coming weeks.
Ducati India recently released a short teaser video of the 2021 Ducati Monster, which is likely to be launched in India this month itself. Now, the company has begun taking bookings for the new Monster as well. Completely updated for 2021, the new Monster is an all-new model ground up and gets a fresh new design along with updated features and a new engine too. The motorcycle is edgier now and become leaner and meaner. The chiselled fuel tank and the new LED headlight and the overall look of the bike feels similar to what a naked motorcycle from MV Agusta would look like. View the motorcycle in profile and you realise that the new Monster ditches the exposed Trellis frame.

The 2021 Ducati Monster gets a 937 cc L-Twin Testastretta engine which is liquid-cooled. The engine is seen on other Ducati models too such as the Hypermotard and 2021 SuperSport. On the Monster, it is tuned to make 110 bhp at 9,250 rpm along with peak torque output of 93 Nm at 6,500 rpm. The engine is paired to a 6-speed gearbox and Ducati offers a bi-directional quick-shifter as standard. The power is 2 bhp up while the torque output goes up by 6 Nm, compared to the Monster 821.
The Monster gets an all-new Aluminium frame inspired by the Panigale V4. The bike is lighter than before, with a dry weight of 166 kg, which is a massive 18 kg lesser than that before. The sub-frame at the rear is made of glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP), making it lighter and stronger than before. The motorcycle gets 43 mm upside down forks with 130 mm travel and an adjustable monoshock at the rear with 140 mm travel. The bike also gets new 17-inch alloys which are lighter than before. They are shod with Pirelli Diablo Rosso III rubber, 120/70 up front and 180/55 at the rear. Up front it gets twin Brembo M4.32 4-piston monobloc callipers that grip two 320 mm discs.

The new Monster gets ABS, cornering ABS, power launch, traction control and wheelie control along with ride-by-wire and three riding modes which are Sport, Touring and Urban. All modes allow the rider to adjust the other electronics as per their requirement. The new Ducati Monster also gets a new 4.3-inch full colour TFT instrument console with graphics inspired by the Panigale V4. The new Monster is likely to be priced between ₹ 11 lakh-12 lakh.
