Ducati India has thrown open bookings for the all-new Monster. The motorcycle is set to be launched in a few days.

  • 937cc, L-twin makes 111hp and 93Nm
  • New aluminium frame instead of the traditional steel trellis frame
  • Kerb weight stands at 188kg

Ducati had showcased the all-new Monster in December and it is a complete departure from the previous Monster 821. From the slimmer design to the chassis or the engine, the new Ducati Monster is different.

At the heart of the motorcycle is a 937cc, liquid-cooled, L-twin engine that makes 111hp and 93Nm. With the bike tipping the scales at 188kg (kerb), the power to weight ratio is 590.42hp/tonne. The engine is paired with a six-speed gearbox that gets a bi-directional quickshifter as standard.

The other big highlight about the new Ducati Monster is the move from a steel trellis frame to an aluminium front frame, inspired by Ducati’s Panigale superbike. Coming to the chassis, the bike is suspended by a 43mm non-adjustable USD fork and a preload adjustable monoshock.

In terms of electronics, there’s lean sensitive traction control and ABS as well as wheelie control and three ride modes – Urban, Touring and Sport. These can be accessed via the new 4.3-inch TFT display.

We will be riding the DucatiMonster in India in a few weeks, stay tuned for the review
