2015 Ducati Monster 821 DarkEssentially Monster
The allure of Dark style and the unmistakable Ducati roar released from the 112hp Testastretta 11 engine are hallmarks of the Monster 821 Dark. Trellis frame, Riding Modes, and the Ducati Safety Pack are the elements that bring you unprecedented riding pleasure. Monster 821 Dark. Designed according to your desires, to be even more Monster.Features May Include:
- Testastretta 11
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.
- 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.
- 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.
