Ducati Monster 797 specs
Existing bike gets raft of updates
Updated for 2018, the Monster 821 received a range of small tweaks, including to the styling and the fuel tank, which shrank from 17.5 litres to 16.5 litres. The engine has also been revised to ensure it complies with Euro4 regulation.
Ducati Monster 821 specs
The above video shows former Senior MCN Road Tester Adam Child riding one of the latest Ducati Monsters; the 821. An update on the previous bike, it sits in direct contention with other premium middleweights, such as the Triumph 765 Speed Triple R and Yamaha MT-09.
The Ducati Monster's rivals
Over its 25-year life span, the Ducati Monster family has done battle with a wide range of motorcycles, ranging from the cheapest commuter bikes to the most premium of supernakeds and muscle cruisers.
This includes bikes like the bargain-basement Suzuki GSF600 Bandit, which went up against the early 600 Monsters as a cheaper alternative to the Italian marque, as well as Honda's CB600F Hornet and the FZS600 Fazer from Yamaha.
Sportier Monsters like the S4RS and the M1200R have also gone head-to-head against fellow European machines, such as Aprilia's Tuono, which has slowly morphed in power, configuration and appeal over its lifetime.
The current M1200R also faces competition from Honda's latest CB1000R. Launched in early 2018, it bridges the gap between supernaked and retro and offers the same raked-out, big power thrills as the 1200.
This also puts it in direct contention with Ducati's own Diavel range, which appeals to those wanting a more relaxed riding position alongside superbike performance.
