Next Ducati Monster 821 incoming - but the steel trellis frame may not be...
Sources have revealed that an all-new Ducati Monster 821 is in the works, and it could be the first Monster without a steel trellis frame.
Spyshots of what appeared to be a Monster with an alloy frame appeared some months back but at the time it was unclear what Ducati were working on. Now these sketches suggest Ducati are aiming for the competitive middleweight market against the likes of the KTM 790 Duke, Triumph Street Triple and Yamaha MT-09. One thing’s for sure though, not only does the alloy frame bring a bit of Panigale V4 cool, it should also bring with it a substantial weight saving.
Again there’s nothing official from Ducati but we’d expect to see this before the year end and we imagine Ducati will want to keep it around its current price of £9995.
