Ducati is hosting its press launch of the 2015 Ducati Monster 821 in Bologna right now, which means that the Italian motorcycle company also just released a ton of high-resoltuion photos of its new water-cooled baby Monster on the interwebs.

Visually very similar to the Monster 1200, the Monster 821 distinguishes itself with lower-spec components, and more noticeably with a double-sided swingarm.

Featuring the same 821cc Testastretta 11° engine (112hp and 65.9 lbs•ft) that is found on the Ducati Hypermotard and Ducati Hyperstrada, the Monster 821 tips the scales at 395.7 lbs (dry) – just 5 lbs less than its 1,200cc counterpart. Other features include traction control, ABS brakes, and a ride-by-wire throttle.

Expect to see the 2015 Ducati Monster 821 in  a Ducati dealership near you next month. Pricing is set at $11,495 for the in red and white models, while the “Dark” is priced at $10,995.

    its a pity how todays pricing in moto industry affects us, consumers,,,
    components found on this model at $12 000 + all the fees, are outdated and so cheap that can only attract someone who buys his/hers first bike,,,and they heard from someone that ducati is bike to have,,,
    same with the hypermotard base model,,,
    and for the absurd to be even bigger, their sales are goin pretty good,,,,
    its a shame that ktm is becoming the same…

    “components found on this model at $12 000 + all the fees, are outdated and so cheap”

    You wasted zero time proving to everyone that you know absolutely shit nothing about modern motorcycles.

  3. Grimey Benson says:

    Outdated and cheap? WTF are you on about? The brand new Brembos on it that just came out this year? The new electronics package that is based on Panigale DTC? The top to bottom new chassis design? The now non-expanding gas tanks?

    Yeah some real stone age stuff, that. Way to out yourself about your total lack of motorcycle knowledge.

  4. Richard Gozinya says:

    This bike just reinforces my belief that liquid cooled engines should be kept covered up. BMW and Harley are the only ones who seem to defy that, somehow. Maybe it’s the goofy faux frame, but the way they’re putting together these new Monsters make the 696 look good, which is quite the accomplishment, because that thing looked like a dog’s ass compared to the older Monsters. So much for Bologna’s vaunted design chops.

    At least Italy’s still got Moto Guzzi, and to a lesser extent, MV Agusta.

  5. Piston says:

    When will they send to hell those belts?

  6. Paul Cypert says:

    What little interest I might have had in yet another Monster reveal was vastly overshadowed at even a hint of their Scrambler. If they wanted any kind of buzz on this they should have held on that bit info.

    Agree with other poster here. Their lower models serve very little purpose at this point. Newer riders will go for a MT 07 or 09 at much less and probably better reliability. They’ve got some nice enough higher end models, but these incremental mid jumps are getting pointless. It’s just highlighting how little they really change. Like new Porsche models…and interestingly enough…a lot of overlap in the personality types of the drivers of both.

  7. Damn says:

    its so messy with all the cables, and the swingarm is just ugly!
