2014 Monster 821

 

The essential Monster
Following the successful unveiling of the new generation Monster 1200 at the Milan International Motorcycle show in November, Ducati now introduces the Monster 821, a mid-size version of the exciting new model and the latest entry to the world of Monster.

More than two decades on from the Monster’s first unveiling, Ducati presents the iconic model’s latest generation middleweight, the 2015 Monster 821. Maintaining the stylish character made famous by the original concept, the essential model sports the same new chassis and muscular styling as the Monster 1200 and is designed with premium components fully integrated with Ducati’s latest technologies.

Powered by the latest edition of Ducati’s highly successful 821 Testastretta 11° engine, the highly accessible new Monster combines 112hp and 65.9ft-lb of torque with an impressively lightweight *179.5kg (395.7lb) overall package. This stylish mix of minimalism and performance paves the way back to the original essence of the Monster concept, where less-is-more and made-in-Italy combine to create a motorcycle lifestyle.

High-spec brakes, excellent suspension and stylish componentry merge with Ducati’s best-yet ergonomics to offer the Italian manufacturer’s most attractive mid-range Monster ever. Super comfortable and with an innovative adjustable seat height, the model also combines 8-level traction control, 3-level ABS and 3-level Ride-by-Wire into Ducati’s user-friendly, press-button Riding Modes.

The new Monster 821 uses next generation technologies to create an enhanced rider/motorcycle relationship, delivering a high-adrenaline experience while constantly reassuring with the feeling of complete control and ergonomic integration.

Available at Ducati Dealerships from July 2014 onwards, the Monster 821 Dark is presented in dark stealth with black frame and black wheels, while the Monster 821 is dressed in Ducati red with red frame and black wheels or star white silk with red frame and matte red wheels. Both red and white liveries are equipped with colour-matched single-seat covers. The brand new model is also made available to restricted license holders.

New Ducati Scrambler Announced

 

 

 

 

 

 

1968 Ducati Scrambler

Ducati have announced a new Scrambler model is to be launched in October 2014

The Ducati Scrambler is expected to be on sale in the UK in 2015.

Ducati haven’t had a Scrambler in their line up since 1974 and the Production of a new model is being met with much excitement.

Further news and updates on the Ducati Scrambler can be found by visiting  www.scramblerducati.com

History of the Ducati Scrambler

The Scrambler was primarily intended for the American market. It underwent continual modification until 1968, when the true Scramblers with “wide-casing” engines were brought out, first in the 250 and 350 versions and then, in 1969, the 450.

The Scrambler series included a few bikes with Desmo cylinder heads and was subjected to continual technical adjustment right up until 1974, when production was halted.

The reasons for the Scrambler’s commercial success were manifold. It had an excellent frame (it was even used for track racing, which is probably unprecedented in motorbike history) and an engine perfectly suited for its function. It was not the fastest bike of its day, but its general performance and absolutely centered riding position, made it one of the most delightful machines of the era. It was, moreover, extremely stylish: rounded lines, simultaneously classical and modern, and bright colors contrasting with the black running gear and chrome gas tank.

By and large, the Scrambler was considered a balance between American and European schools of motorcycling. It was an extremely fashionable bike, and remains popular today.
