The 2018 Ducati Monster 821 is India bound and is expected to be launched in the country next year with a price tag of around Rs 11 lakh.

The 821 is just one of five models the Italian manufacturer will launch at next month's show, with the remainder to be unveiled on a live stream on Sunday, 5 November at 9pm. The new headlamp with LED daytime running light has also been borrowed from the M1200 while the sleeker tail section gets inspiration from the M900. What more, a colour TFT display with selected gear and fuel indicators also make its debut with the iconic naked motorcycle. For riders who have an aversion to clutch levers, the Ducati Quick Shifter is available as a plug-in upgrade, giving clutchless snickerbility up and down the 'box. The suspension system comprises 43 mm Dollars front forks and an adjustable monoshock unit at the rear, while braking performance includes 320 mm dual front discs with M4-32 calipers and a 245 mm single disc at the rear. The new Monster 821 continues to feature three riding mores - Sport, Touring and Urban - along with eight-level traction control and three-level ABS as a part of Ducati Safety Pack. The Riding Modes ensures easy adjustment of ABS, DTC and Power Modes (controlling peak power and type of delivery).
