The Ducati Monster superbike is powered by a 937cc L-twin Testastretta 11-degree engine. It is now more powerful, thanks to the new engine which is capable of churning out maximum output of 111 hp at 9250 rpm and 93 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox which comes with Ducati Quick Shift Up/Down quickshfiter as standard.
According to Ducati, the engine, which has been tweaked for the new generation Monster, delivers a stronger low and mid-range power and a flatter torque curve due to increase in displacement. It is also about 2.5 kgs lighter in comparison with the older generation models, helping it to outperform its predecessor, at least on paper.
The bike gets a host of electronics rider aids such as Cornering ABS, Traction Control and Wheelie Control - all adjustable to different levels of intervention. It also gets Launch Control and three Riding Modes (Sport, Urban, Touring). There is also a new 4.3-inch colour TFT instrument cluster on the updated Monster.
When compared to the Monster 821, the new bike is a mammoth 18 kilos lighter and now has a seat height of 32.3 inches which seeks to ensure that riders of any height would be able to be comfortable on it.
