New Delhi: Italian superbike maker Ducati on Thursday launched the Monster range in India, at a starting price of INR 10.99 lakh for the Monster and INR 11.24 lakh for Monster Plus (Ex-Showroom India).

Ducati said that Monster is its best selling model with more than 3.5 lakh units sold since it was first introduced in 1993.

According to the bike maker, the new model gets a Testastretta 11°, 937 cc L- twin engine, with Desmodromic distribution and BS-VI 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.

The aluminium front frame replicates the same concept found on the Panigale V4. It is short and attached directly to engine heads. With a weight of only 3 kg, this frame is 4.5 kg lighter (60% less) than the previous trellis, helping to reduce the dry weight of the bike to just 166 kg, the company said.
