Form & Function
The performance and fluidity of the new Testastretta 11°, the versatility of the three Riding Modes, the comfort of the adjustable seat and the passenger handles make the Monster 821 Stripe the ideal bike for every occasion. With Monster, the design is unmistakably that of an icon. The fun has no limits.
Race Inspired Frame & Suspension
The new Monster has a frame structure that's inspired by the racing models, with the engine as the star. The structure is comprised of a compact Ducati trellis frame, mounted directly onto the cylinder heads and the engine itself. Even the shock and the rear sub-frame are connected to the engine. The sub-frame has a classic tubular layout and is further enhanced by the way it is coupled with the exhaust system, the plastic parts and the tail light. This sophisticated, light and robust structure enables the Monster to achieve the lowest kerb weight in its category(205.5 Kg).
The racing inspired chassis geometry is matched with Ø 43 mm fully adjustable upside-down forks, while the rear suspension is entrusted to a Sachs monoshock with adjustable compression and extension, mounted on one side vertically on the cylinder head and, on the other, on a sturdy Ducati double-sided swingarm. This exceptional suspension allows contact with the wheel to be maintained and guarantees control and agility even in extreme driving conditions.
821 Stripe Ergonomics
The dimensions of the new Monster 821 have been completely redefined and its ergonomics redesigned to offer maximum versatility in all situations and driving conditions. The new dimensions of the Monster provide ample space even for a rider 1.85 m tall and a passenger 1.75 m tall, also enabling you to transport luggage without any problems. The seat position is very comfortable, ideal even for long distances, and the driving position is upright thanks to the best possible positioning of the handlebars. The whole thing is completed by a passenger seat with an easily removable cover, and lowered footpegs and handles which make the ride comfortable and enjoyable for the passenger.

Monster 821 Stripe Technical Data
The Monster 821 Stripe is powered by the Testastretta 11° 821 cc engine, with air injection system. A secondary air system similar to the one used on the 1199 Panigale has been introduced in order to optimise operation and reduce combustion cycle variability, without affecting emissions. A controlled flow of clean air is injected into the exhaust pipe, enabling total oxidation of the hot exhaust gases, efficiently cutting hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide levels. The Testastretta 11° engine fitted to the Monster 821 Stripe is an exclusive feature of these bikes and its structure has been engineered to be an integral element of the frame. In addition, the air filter and exhaust system have been designed to provide improved torque at low-medium engine speeds. The Testastretta 11° 821 cc engine generates power equal to 82.4 kW (112CV) @ 9,250 rpm and 89.4 Nm (9.1kgm) of torque at 7,750 rpm.
The Testastretta 11° 821 engine is combined with a type 2-1-2 exhaust system, which leaves no room for doubt about the performance that the new Monster 821 Stripe is capable of unleashing. The engine control unit has a lambda probe for each individual cylinder, guaranteeing delivery of the right amount of fuel, while the stylish vertically stacked cannon silencers are equipped with catalytic converters that ensure compliance with Euro 3 standards. An electronically controlled mid-section adjustment valve optimises exhaust pressure according to engine speed.
Brembo Braking System
The front brakes of the Monster 821 Stripe have high-performance, pump-activated Brembo monobloc M4-32 radial callipers, equipped with high-calibration multiple 9MP ABS as standard. The four-piston front callipers, fitted radially, act on 320 mm discs, while the Brembo two-piston rear calliper is fitted on a 240 mm disc.

The new Monster incorporates the most innovative, state-of-the-art Ducati technology, including the renowned Ducati Riding Modes. The three Riding Modes (URBAN, TOURING, SPORT) combine the leading technologies in the product class, such as Ride-by-Wire (RbW), Ducati Traction Control (DTC), and 9MP ABS with multiple settings. The rider can change the character of the bike by simply clicking a button, even mid-ride, choosing the configuration that best suits his riding style or the road conditions from the three different pre-set options (Riding Modes). The Riding Modes allow the rider to instantly change the power delivered by the engine and the DTC and ABS activation levels.
The Riding Modes are factory pre-set for each of the three parameters, but can be customised individually and saved in order to best meet the needs of the rider. The initial settings can easily be reset via the "default" option
Ducati Safety Pack
The designers of the new Monster didn't focus solely on achieving excellent performance, but also on guaranteeing a high level of safety for the rider and passenger in all driving conditions. This second goal has been achieved by providing the Monster 821 Stripe with the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP) as standard, along with the 9MP ABS system and the 8-profile Ducati Traction Control (DTC).
The meticulous design and top-quality materials used for the Monster have allowed amazing results to be achieved. Adjusting the valve clearance is scheduled for every 30,000 km and changing the oil every 15,000 km, increasing service intervals and cutting running costs. These results were made possible by improving combustion efficiency and cutting the operating temperatures of the Testastretta 11° engine.
Ducati guarantees all its bikes for a period of 24 months from registration, with unlimited mileage.
