2017 Ducati Monster 821 Stripe

2017 Ducati Monster 821 Stripe
Red
MSRP: $12,395.00
Manufacturer: Ducati
Condition: New

Description

Bold and essential design. Advanced electronics to ensure greater riding pleasure. Styling as unmistakable as its history. The new Monster 821 Stripe is the epitome of the values of naked motorcycles by Ducati. A racing livery to inspire an even more sporty feel and a fully adjustable suspension for even more sophistication.

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 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.

Features

Engine

  • The Monster 821 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.

Exhaust system

  • 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 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 4 standards. An electronically controlled mid-section adjustment valve optimises exhaust pressure according to engine speed.

Service intervals

  • 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.

Power and torque

  • Thanks to the specially designed air filter and exhaust system, the Testastretta 11° engine generates power comparable to that of a 3/4 cylinder engine. Even the most demanding "Monsteristi" and sports riders will be able to appreciate the punchy torque that is readily available at a wide range of speeds, already reaching more than 85% of its maximum torque at 5500 rpm. The Testastretta 11°'s character is enhanced by the choice of the final ratio set to develop maximum acceleration in each gear and maximum engine response with each turn of the throttle.

Slipper clutch

  • The transmission features an oil bath clutch with "slipper" function and a lever that is very light to the touch. It is equipped with a gradual self-servo system that compresses the discs when the engine speed is reduced, allowing the load on the pressure plate springs to be reduced. This reduces the stress on the clutch lever, ensuring optimum conditions in city traffic when frequent gear changes are required, or on long trips. When the transmission force is reversed (overload), the same mechanism makes it possible to reduce the pressure on the clutch plates, enabling them to work in "slipper" mode, which reduces the destabilising effect on the rear end during aggressive downshifting and gives a feeling of greater fluidity when decelerating or downshifting in normal driving conditions.

Unmistakable Fuel Tank

  • The Monster's 17.5 L fuel tank is an integral part of the bike's overall design. The distinctive fuel tank, pure "Monster" in style, completes the Monster's strong, unmistakable silhouette, while its metal structure and sculpted knee panels give the bike a feeling of solidity.

Brembo braking system

  • The front brakes of the Monster 821 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.

Customised 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.

Frame inspired by racing bikes

  • 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).

10-spoke wheels

  • The ten-spoke lightweight aluminium alloy wheels guarantee agility and perfect control of the set-up at all speeds. The 3.5x17 front wheel and 6x17 rear are fitted with Pirelli Diablo Rosso II 120/70 ZR and 180/60 ZR tyres respectively.

Front headlight

  • The front of the new Monster 821 is dominated by a rounded headlight and flanked by forks, a distinctive feature of the imposing, unmistakable shape of the Monster The headlight is made up of a modern unit that uses a bulb for high and low beam and LED technology for the two parking lights located on the sides The encased tail light is fully LED.

180/60 rear tyre

  • At the rear the Monster 821 uses a 180/60ZR17 tyre with the same width/height ratio as is used in national and world Supersport competitions, which offers a larger contact area than the "classic" 180/55; the higher and slightly wider contour improves handling and rider comfort, while the larger contact area increases traction in acceleration and improves stability on the straight.

Ride-by-Wire

  • The Ride-by-Wire (RbW) system is an electronic interface between the engine and the Monster's twistgrip, which enables the ideal power to be delivered to be set depending on the Riding Mode selected. The twistgrip doesn't have a throttle cable directly linked to the throttle bodies, but sends a signal to the control unit which, in turn, electronically controls the opening of the throttle bodies

Riding Modes

  • 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
