The Ducati Monster 821 was created in tribute to the iconic Monster 900, which was launched 25-years-ago and kick-started the Monster family.
The range was updated further in 2018 with a new Stealth version, complete with matte black paint, updated graphics and new front fairing - as well as featuring the standard adjustable forks and up-and-down quickshifter.

If this is a little out of your price range, you will be pleased to know that there are currently plenty of 821s available at MCN Bikes For Sale, catering for almost any budget.
Launched in 2014, the latest version of the bike features a steel trellis chassis using the engine as a stressed member, similar to the V-Twin Panigale Superbikes of old. The chassis is also a little more basic than the larger, full-fat Monster 1200's - featuring a conventional double-sided swingarm in place of a single-sided unit. It's also slightly shorter, to quicken the steering.
Forgiving and easy to ride around town, the 821 would be more than ideal for a new rider moving up to their first big bike, however is capable of being far more than that.
Wallasey Motorcycles say: "This excellent condition, clean and well looked-after example of the positively superb Ducati Monster 821 has covered just 7173 miles since new. It is supplied with both keys and full service history with all receipts and four Ducati stamps.
"With only two previous owners, the bike comes with all the original handbooks/rider pack plus a tail-tidy, bar-end mirrors and a fresh (first) MOT along with 3 months warranty. Finance (T&C's apply) and nationwide delivery are available."
