Ducati has presented a new 'stealth' version of the Monster 821, just ahead of the EICMA 2018 motorcycle show in Milan. The Ducati Monster 821 Stealth, as it's called, is more than just a paint job on the regular Monster 821. The engine remains the same, with the Testastretta 11-degree 821 cc v-twin capable of putting out 109 bhp at 9,250 rpm and 86 Nm of peak torque, but there are some minor upgrades to the Monster 821 Stealth. The bike now gets an adjustable 43 mm Kayaba front fork, as well as a small bikini fairing on top of the headlight. The standard Monster 821 doesn't come with adjustable front fork.
Also new on the 821 Stealth is a bi-directional (up and down) Ducati Quick Shift system, which seems to be par for the course for all top-spec variants of the 2019 Ducati range. Other features include three riding modes, which are already available on the standard Monster 821. What the Stealth will get is the updated suspension and quickshifter, as well as the small windscreen for better airflow.
On November 4, Ducati showcased the entire 2019 range, which included 3 all-new models - the Ducati Hypermotard 950, the Ducati Diavel 1250, and the manic Ducati Panigale V4 R, which is the most powerful Ducati motorcycle ever produced. The Monster 821 Stealth will be on display at the EICMA 2018 show, and is expected to be launched in India, as a 2019 year model. The Monster 821 Stealth will be slightly more expensive than the standard Ducati Monster 821, owing to the updated suspension, and features.
