The new Monster represents all the essence of Ducati in the lightest, most compact and essential form possible. You can already guess it from the name: Monster, nothing else.
The recipe is the original 1993 one: a sporty engine, but perfect for road use, combined with a Superbike-derived frame.
All that you need to have fun, every day.
- Lightweight: the Superbike-derived frame with aluminum front frame helps to keep the weight down to just 366 lb dry. And lightness is a key ingredient for an easy, maneuvrable, fast and above all fun bike.
- Compactness: Narrow sides and front frame ending at vertical head height. This helps to easily put your feet on the ground at a steady motion.
- Essential: Design characterized by simple and clean lines. An engine, a saddle, a tank and a handlebar. There is only what you need to drive and have fun, nothing more.
- Exciting performance: The Monster is powered by the Testastretta 11° 937 cc twin cylinder L-shaped engine, with desmodromic distribution. Compared to the previous 821 it increases displacement, power, torque and decreases weight by 5.3 lbs (2.4 kg) to contribute to the lightness of the bike and offer better rideability. It now delivers 111 hp at 9,250 rpm with maximum torque of 69 lb-ft (93Nm) delivered at just 6,500 rpm, proving to be efficient and reactive in throttle response.
