Ducati launches much-awaited 2021 Ducati Monster in India

New Delhi: Luxury motorcycle brand Ducati today announced the launch of its all-new Monster range in India, with Monster priced at Rs10.99 lakhs and Monster Plus priced at Rs11.24 lakhs respectively (Ex-Showroom India).

The new Monster represents all the essence of Ducati in the lightest, most compact, and essential form possible. The recipe is the same like it was in 1993: a sporty engine, that is perfect for road use, combined with a Superbike-derived frame. The concept of the new Monster is similar to what the unforgettable Monster 900 was, the first, true sports naked, but reimagined from ground up. The result is a bike with an advanced and easy chassis, capable of immediately establishing the perfect feeling with the rider. The riding position is less loaded on the wrists and the engine offers an excellent balance between power, torque, and ease of handling.

To create the new Monster, the engineers and designers started from scratch, but with a clear idea of the key points of the new bike. Lean and agile, the bike incorporates the DNA of each Monster that makes it immediately recognizable: fuel tank shaped like a "bison back", "shoulder-embedded" round headlight, clean tail, and engine at the center of the scene.

Bipul Chandra, Managing Director, Ducati India said, "The new Monster is a true star for everyone at Borgo Panigale. A brand name that has marked the history of Ducati like few others, by becoming our best-selling model ever as Ducati has sold more than 350,000 motorcycles since the Monster was first introduced in 1993. The new Monster is a completely new bike, designed to be more sporty, light, and easy to ride, to make it accessible to new riders as well as to ones that are more experienced. Globally, we have had a terrific response for the new Monster and I am confident that it will be a hit amongst the riding community in India as it perfectly suits our riding conditions as a naked, light Ducati that is just fun!"

Sporty and Fun.
The new Monster gets a new engine, a Testastretta 11°, 937 cc L- twin, with Desmodromic distribution and BS6 homologation. Compared to the previous 821, the new engine increases in displacement, power, torque, and decreases in weight (-2.4 kg) to contribute to the lightness of the bike and offers a vastly better riding experience. It now churns 111 hp at 9,250 rpm with maximum torque of 93 nm delivered at just 6,500 rpm, proving to be efficient and reactive in throttle response. Thanks to the increased displacement, the torque improves at all revs, particularly in the medium-low range, most used on the road and between corners. This guarantees thrilling performance as well as riding ease and pleasure, also supported by the new gearbox and the Ducati Quick Shift Up/down fitted as standard.
