Modeled after the Monster 1200 that premiered this past November, Ducati has now announced a mid-sized Monster 821 as Bologna’s newest best in bikes. Ducati’s all time best seller, the third generation of the bike that ushered in the “naked” look finally gets its smaller displacement engine. The Monster 821 boasts an 11″ Terrastrota engine on a motorcycle that is impressively lightweight (396 lbs) considering its 112 horsepower and 65.9 ft-lb of torque. Other bragging rights include eight-level traction control, three-level ABS and Ride-by-Wire — as well as press-button Riding Modes. Coming this July to Europe in either black on black or red and white.
