2018 Ducati Monster 821 Launched In India At ₹ 9.51 Lakh, Full Specifictions and Mileage

Written by Abhishek Lohia

Ducati India launched the 2018 Monster 821 motorcycle in the country priced at an introductory Rs. 9.51 lakh (ex-showroom). The Ducati Monster 821 was launched in 2016 and but discontinued last year after the BS-IV emission norms were brought in place. The Monster 821 now makes a comeback in a revised new 2018 avatar with styling upgrades, new features and a BS-IV compliant powertrain. In a first, Ducati India launched the new Monster 821 in a rather innovative way with the proceedings happening on Twitter, instead of venue based event.

The 2018 Ducati Monster 821 borrows several design elements from the original M900, as the Monster series completes 25 years. The fuel tank design has been revised and is shared with the Monster 1200, but gets a lock on the fuel tank, paying tribute to the original Monster. The tail section is slimmer and inspired from the M900, while the headlamp cluster is new and now gets the full LED treatment. The new Monster 821 also gets a full TFT colour instrument console that allows a host of information, while Ducati Multimedia system is offered as optional.
