Ducati announced an update to the Monster 821, making it look more like the Monster 1200, including the larger model’s TFT screen. The model refresh comes on the 25th anniversary of the Ducati Monster family, and will be the first of five new or updated motorcycles Ducatiwill showcase in a couple of weeks at EICMA.

The Ducati Monster 821 receives a new tail design that looks similar to the Monster 1200. The 821 also gets the larger Monster’s round headlight with a halogen bulb with LED 'horseshoe' side lights, as well as the 1200’s fuel tank, which unfortunately also reduces fuel capacity from 4.6 gallons to 4.36 gallons. The tank does add an attachment clip, a nod to the original M900.

I just don't get it..

I'm sure it's a wonderful bike, and it's crammed with every upgrade under the sun, but it has that same 'fat' look the Triumphs have, and lacks that glorious open and sparse look the old mid 2000 monsters had before they changed the frame.

I know I'd love it if I had one. I don't hate it, but.. The look of it.. I am not inspired to get one. Am I marooned into wanting 'old' bikes forever?
