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 Dark the ideal bike for every occasion. With Monster, the design is unmistakably that of an icon. The fun has no limits.
The allure of Dark style
821 - Design
It takes just a glance to see all of the elements that contribute to creating the legendary Monster: the muscular, sporty line, the rounded front headlight flanked by the forks, the high number plate, the compact yet imposing metal fuel tank. The unmistakable "minimalist" design that gives you the impression of being in front of an engine, a frame, a tank, a seat, and nothing more.
Despite its larger size, which offers unprecedented performance and versatility, the Monster's proportions immediately reveal the heart of a sports bike. The mass is visually concentrated at the front and the engine area looks compact, even with the new water cooling system, into which the radiator and the water supply pipes have been cleverly incorporated. The engine is combined with an impressive side-mounted staggered exhaust system that leaves no room for doubt about the bike's performance.
The new Monster 821 Dark clearly spells sophistication, modernity and substance thanks to its avant-garde technology and top-quality materials. Ducati's traditional trellis frame has evolved, using a typical sports bike solution, in which the engine is the supporting element. The imposing metal tank in pure "Monster style" helps to define a superior class of bike.

Monster 821 Dark Technical Data
The Monster 821 Dark 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 Dark 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 Dark 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 Dark 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.

9 MP ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System)

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 Dark 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.
