Introducing The Brand New Ducati Monster
The Monster is one of the most recognizable models ever produced by Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati. Ever since the Monster was first introduced in 1993 it has been a core Ducati model. The 2021 Ducati line-up features an all-new model that has been redesigned from the ground-up, taking design cues from the original Monster.
Over the years, the Monster has seen numerous evolutions. However, this is the most significant redesign to date. Though it’s had a radical make-over, it still retains the classic spirit and character that we often associate with Ducati motorcycles. For example, it’s still powered by a 937 cc Testastretta twin-cylinder engine, however, it’s had a few upgrades that now allow it to produce 111 horsepower and 69 lb-ft of torque.
The frame has also been redesigned completely, taking engineering cues from Ducati’s racing division. It’s a lightweight unit made of aluminum, with a slim and narrow design for improved agility. Though it has racing DNA, the new Monster is a great all- ‘rounder, which offers sports performance, everyday rideability, and a comfortable ride experience.
For 2021, the new Monster is available in three color options: Ducati Red, Aviator Grey, and Dark Stealth.
The 2021 Ducati Monster starts at $11,895 USD / $13,495 CAD.

2021 Ducati Monster Features
Lightweight: the Superbike-derived frame with aluminum front frame helps to keep the weight down to just 36 lb dry.
And lightness is a key ingredient for an easy, maneuvrable, fast and above all fun bike.
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.
Sporty and Fun
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 7 lb-ft (9.5 Nm) delivered at just 6,500 rpm, proving to be efficient and reactive in throttle response.
