Ducati Malaysia has finally brought in the all-new Ducati Monster
The best-selling and longest-running Ducati model has gone through its biggest evolution yet when the 2021 Ducati Monster was unveiled last year. As of today, the all-new Monster is officially available here in the country thanks to Ducati Malaysia and it is now available for viewing as well as test rides at all of its authorised showrooms.
The all-new Ducati Monster has been redesigned from the ground up making it a true pound-for-pound contender within its category. Constructed to be lighter, more powerful, and even more fun to ride than before, the latest rendition of the Monster offers a lot of excitement from multiple angles, including its limited-time introductory price of RM69,900 (excluding insurance, road tax, and registration).
Powered by a much bigger 937cc L-twin Testastretta 11° engine, the 2021 Ducati Monster produces 111hp at 9,250rpm and 93Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. Power is modulated using its Ride-by-Wire throttle system as well as a new six-speed manual transmission which has been further enhanced with the Ducati Quick Shifter for both up and down gearshifts (available as standard equipment, no extra payment).
Compared to the previous Monster 821, the new Ducati Monster is a whopping 18kg lighter thanks to a whole new chassis that uses the engine itself as a stressed member. Taking some inspired ideas from the Panigale V4, the new Monster is now only 166kg (dry weight). All of these offer a much more exciting riding experience as the engine has also been tuned to deliver its torque throughout its rev range.
Other noteworthy specs include:
- Cornering ABS
- Traction Control
- Wheelie Control
- Launch Control
- Selectable riding modes (Sport, Urban, Touring)
- 4.3-inch TFT display
- Ducati Multimedia System
- 17-inch light-alloy cast wheels
- Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tyres
- Brembo brakes + more
As stated above, Ducati Malaysia has priced the all-new Ducati Monster with a limited-time launch price of RM69,900.
