Test Riding the 2021 Ducati Monster

Last month I had the amazing opportunity to join Ducati USA in San Francisco at their official launch event for the new 2021 Ducati Monster. The first of it's kind without the iconic trellis frame, Ducati made many bold decisions to make the bike more light-weight, nimble, and approachable than ever.

It was such a joy to ride the Pacific Coast Highway, urban San Fran, and through dense redwood forests on a full day with the Monster. I hope you enjoyed my first impressions and review of the bike from an extensive test ride, and stay tuned for more!
