Italian superbike maker Ducati has started taking bookings for its next Monster and Monster Plus motorcycles in India. One can reserve the new Monster or Monster Plus superbikes for a one-time fee of one lakh.
Ducati will hold a digital launch event later this week for Indian lovers to ride in the new Monster and Monster Plus superbikes. There will be a digital launch event on 23 September. According to Ducati, the superbikes will be delivered soon after the debut.
Bipul Chandra, Managing Director, Ducati India said, “The new Monster has already received a great response in the global market, and this is especially true for young riders and enthusiasts. We are looking forward to bringing the new Monster and Monster Plus to India. Excited for the Indian market, and let our riders experience the sportiest nudes we’ve created for the middleweight segment.”
The Ducati Monster Superbike is powered by a 937cc L-twin Testastretta 11-degree engine. It now gets a more powerful engine, which is capable of producing 111 horsepower at 9250 rpm and 93 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm due to the upgraded engine. The engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission that includes Ducati Quick Shift up/down quick-shifter as standard.
Due to the increased displacement, Ducati claims that the engine, which has been tuned for the next-generation Monster, delivers more low- and mid-range power and a flatter torque curve. It is also 2.5 kg lighter than the older generation model, allowing it to outperform its predecessor, at least on paper.
The bike comes with a variety of electronic rider aids including cornering ABS, traction control, and wheelie control, all of which can be adjusted to different levels of involvement. Launch control and three riding modes are also included (Sport, Urban, Touring). The redesigned Monster also gets a new 4.3-inch color TFT instrument cluster. Compared to the Monster 821, the new bike is 18 pounds lighter and has a seat height of 32.3 inches, allowing riders of any height to ride comfortably.
