Du­cati Mon­ster 821 (2014-cur­rent)

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Mcn garage -

An­other all-new reinvention of the Mon­ster, this time to liq­uid-cooled from air­cooled en­gines as forced by ever-tight­en­ing Euro­pean emis­sions reg­u­la­tions. As be­fore, a ju­nior (821) and se­nior (1200, below left) ver­sions were launched along­side each other. Both share Tes­tas­tretta-de­rived, four­valve en­gines (in the 821’s case putting out 112bhp), all-new chas­sis, a (slightly) more laid­back, cruiser-ey pos­ture and fresh bodywork and clocks – still un­mis­tak­ably a Mon­ster, though.

What you’ll pay to­day

£6900-£9000. But should you? Cur­rent en­try-level Mon­ster is more user-friendly and so­phis­ti­cated than ever.

High-spec but still has that es­sen­tial Mon­ster DNA
