Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
Essential, sporty, hi-tech but - most importantly - fun. In one word: Monster.
With its supremely sporty performance and agility, the new Monster 821 has been designed for maximum riding pleasure. The performance of the 109 HP Testastretta 11° engine is enhanced by the Ducati Safety Pack (ABS and Ducati Traction Control) and the Riding Modes, which guarantee maximum safety always and everywhere.
Features may include:Engine
- Testastretta 11°
The Monster 821 is driven by the twin-cylinder Desmodromic Testastretta 11° with a displacement of 821 cm, designed to be a structural element of the chassis.
The engine of the Monster 821 breathes through Ride-by-Wire commanded throttle bodies, is Euro 4 approved and ensures a maximum output of 109 hp (79 kW) with 9,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 8.8 kgm (86 Nm) at 7,750 rpm.
Developed to ensure a delivery of full and progressive torque at every speed, this engine guarantees fun and usability that are within reach of all.
Furthermore, long maintenance intervals calling for the control of valve clearance every 30,000 km make the Monster 821 a reliable and accessible bike.Chassis
- Tank, seat and tail
Tank and tail have been completely redesigned and are now visually agile and slim, while retaining the muscular and aggressive shapes that are key elements of the Monsters DNA.
The 16.5 l tank is common to the Monster 1200 and guarantees a long ride.
The twin-seater tail with a removable passenger seat cover incorporates the number plate holder.
The ergonomics can be adjusted thanks to the seat that can be set to two different heights from the ground (785 mm - 810 mm) so that riders of different stature can always have a correct riding position.
The ergonomics also benefits from rider and passenger footpeg supports, which are now separate.Equipment
The front headlight of the Monster 821 is modern and contemporary, while recalling the circular shapes that have always characterised the front end of the Monster of each generation.
It is also technologically advanced, using a halogen light source with horseshoe LED parking lights, a distinctive feature of all Ducati naked bikes.
The rear light is also a LED.
