The 821 is not a "upgrade", it's a different bike. Electronics, rider aids, water cooled (and not very attractive IMO with all the exposed coolant hoses), seating position, etc.

The 797 is marketed to buyers that want a new bike, don't want to spend a ton of money, and want a simple air cooled, light, naked Ducati. Or they want a second or third bike - like me.

Ducati has nailed it by bring this back since the 796 was phased out. The 821 is not a bike to attract new riders.
All reasons I have a 2013 1100 Diesel and 2013 796 (day ride).

How is the 797? I am one step away from buying it. Anyone has experiences with heating? I heard it overheats a lot.
