Key Specs of Monster
Ducati Monster Highlights
Ducati India has launched the 2021 Monster 950 at Rs 10.99 lakh (ex-showroom India). This makes it Rs 1.48 lakh pricier than the BS4 Monster 821, and it justifies the hike with a new design, sophisticated electronics and a new, more powerful engine. Read all about it in our story.
The Ducati Monster 950 is a replacement to the Monster 821 and it’s better in almost all aspects. Starting with the design, the 2021 Monster is sleeker and sharper than the 821. This is thanks to a new oval headlight, a more muscular fuel tank and slimmer tail section.
Complementing the sportier design, the Monster 950 is more powerful too. It now adopts a 937cc L-twin motor (same as the Multistrada 950) that puts out 111.5PS and 93Nm, 2.8PS and 7Nm more than the Monster 821.
The new engine is housed in a new monocoque chassis, derived from the Panigale V4. However, the chassis is still sprung on the same 43mm USD fork up front. Even the braking setup remains as is, with twin discs clamped by Brembo M4.32 calipers.
Meanwhile, Ducati has also thrown in a bunch of electronic goodies like lean-sensitive traction control and ABS, three riding modes (Urban, Touring and Sport), Wheelie Control EVO, and Launch Control EVO, all accessible by a new 4.3-inch TFT display.

Monster Expert Review
The Ducati Monster is among the most legendary names in the world of motorcycles. You see, the Monster ensured that the iconic Italian brand didn’t go bust, and in its almost three-decade journey, it has become the highest-selling Ducati bike in the world. Such has been the importance of the Monster that it has received only four updates in its lifetime, with the latest one being the most radical.
With the 2021 Ducati Monster, the Italian brand has focused on three key aspects: new styling, more power, and less weight. We got to ride the 2021 Monster at the BIC race track, and here’s what we liked and what we didn’t like about the new motorcycle.
Engine and Performance
The 2021 Monster also receives a larger heart. It’s now powered by a 937cc, liquid-cooled L-twin motor rated at 111.5PS (2PS more) and 93Nm, which is an increment of 7Nm over its predecessor. The bump in output and the weight reduction result in thrilling performance. The throttle response is sharp, and because the bulk of the torque is available at low and mid-range revs, the motor is also very tractable.
The linear power delivery is friendly, but if you go hard on the throttle, the front does get light easily, thus reminding you that the ‘monster element’ is still very much intact on this new bike. Despite the BS6 norms, Ducati has managed to maintain the throaty and rumbly exhaust note, however, at idle and low revs, the motor doesn’t sound very pleasing.
Braking and Handling
For a Ducatisti, the switch from a trellis frame to a monocoque frame might equate to blasphemy, but that should change once s/he rides the new Monster. The new frame is not only lighter but blesses the bike with lovable handling dynamics. On the Monster 821, one had to muscle the front end, while the 2021 Monster just tips into corners naturally. The massive weight loss also makes the new Ducati Monster easier to steer, and direction changes on chicanes are just effortless.
Also, the new frame is more communicative and forgiving, which novice and intermediate skill riders will appreciate. Another aspect that aided in its handling performance is the Pirelli Diablo Rosso III rubber that not only offered good grip, but didn’t fade much even after back-to-back sessions on the track.
Safety and Features
Being a Ducati offering, the 2021 Monster has been loaded to the brim with electronic goodies. You get three riding modes, eight levels of traction control, wheelie control (three levels), launch control, and cornering ABS with levels of intervention. The multiple-level intervention of the electronic aids helps the rider tune it based on their riding skill, making the new Monster more versatile and accessible to a larger audience. The intervention of the traction control, in my opinion, could have been more seamless, as on a few occasions, I felt it was cutting power a bit too early.
As I mentioned before, the Monster does have a wild side, and the wheelie control system came to my aid in keeping the bike grounded and stable while exiting hard out of corners. A bi-directional quickshifter comes standard on the 2021 Monster, and while it’s not the most sophisticated unit out there, it does its duty well and is a boon while hooning around the race track. Coming to the crisp 4.3-inch TFT screen, Ducati has kept their UI quite simple, and you can toggle through the various modes and settings easily using the switch cubes on the left handlebar.
