The Ducati Monster 821 looks like it was well thought-out when it was still on the drawing board. The headlamp looks good, above a short, sporty front mudguard. There’s a smart instrument cluster that means business, and displays all relevant information when riding, easy to read even under the harsh North Indian sun.
The Monster 821 tank is large, and looks a treat, with the inimitable hunch of a Monster. The Ducati’s red trellis frame making an appearance under the tank is a nice touch. The low-set seat is comfortable too, and lets you amble around for long in traffic, with heat from the engine or exhaust pipes never a problem.
