Review – 2015 Ducati Monster 821 !!!

The name monster it suits it well. It is a monster and one hell of a ride. The engine is water cooled, the brakes are Brembo , and the suspension… For many people this naked Ducati is the best so far as they say. It is built to be comfortable for the rider as well for the passenger. And it is great for women too. Ina few words this Ducati monster is built to fit everybody. It is made a few pounds lighter but also it has other features that complement this loss like the bigger engine and the components of the cooling system. No matter that it is lighter it can be a great ride while driven across a smooth asphalt. Maybe it has some difficulties when driving it for a bumpy ride but it is perfect for a city ride. The front wheel is easy to rise and because of the torques on the bottom it is easy to control it. The sitting position is straight you just need to lean a little bit to the bars. The only problem is that the footpegs are silk when they are wet and also it allows the water to go all over the drivers back. But still with all the flaws it is as I said one hell of a ride. Do you question yourself why with all its flaws it is still a good monster. Well, because of the power that offers and not only that also because of the comfort, the comfort for all kind of people from man to women from short to tall people. Maybe is not that exotic but it will make you happy whenever you ride it and about the rice I think it suits it, it is real for a monster like this!!!
