2021 Ducati Monster engine & gearbox
The new superbike is powered by a 937cc Testastretta 11° L-twin engine, which is also used on the SuperSport 950. This engine has a max torque of 93Nm at 6,500rpm and generates 109.4bhp at 9,250rpm.
These statistics represent a 2bhp and 7Nm increase over the erstwhile Monster 821’s powerplant. A 6-speed gearbox with a hydraulic clutch and quick-shifter handles power transfer.

The most noticeable alteration is the absence of the distinctive exposed trellis structure. Instead, it receives a brand-new aluminium frame inspired by the Panigale V4 and V2 models.
The new frame, according to Ducati, is 4.5kg lighter and barely weighs 3kg. Furthermore, the new Monster is far lighter than its predecessor – the new version weighs 18kg less than the Monster 821. Its dry weight is only 166kg.

2021 Monster’s front is equipped with a non-adjustable 43mm upside-down fork, while the back is equipped with a pre-load adjustable mono-shock.
Dual 320mm front discs with radially mounted Brembo M4.32 4-piston callipers and a 245mm rear disc with a 2-piston floating calliper provide braking power.
The redesigned Monster’s steering angle has been raised by 7-degrees to 36-degrees to improve its agility, among other changes. The handlebar has been pushed back 2.75 inches, resulting in a more upright riding stance.
2021 Ducati Monster features
The circular headlight is retained, the fuel tank is more muscular, and the tail is crisp and clean. Full-LED headlights, integrated indicators on the fuel tank, new graphics, and a stubby twin-pipe exhaust system are some of the major design features that are new.
Over the regular Monster, the Monster+ gets a flyscreen and a pillion seat cowl. A 4.3-inch full colour display is also included.
Three riding modes – Sport, Urban, and Touring – are included in the electronics package, as well as cornering ABS, launch control, traction control, and wheelie control.
