Ducati Monster’s name itself has its brute personality, what everyone thinks. This motorcycle represents all the essence of Ducati in the lightest, most compact and essential form possible. However, its fame for what it is- an assembly of borrowed parts. Many advanced feature updates are in the new Ducati Monster Plus. This new model comes with weight reduction that helps beginners experience the whole sport naked ride. The new Monster Plus is fast and agile; and the perfect bike between the turns. In short, the new Ducati Monster Plus is a versatile bike that suits for everyone to enjoy.
Ducati India has updated its portfolio with the launch of the new Monster. This new model from the Italian brand replaces the Monster 821 in the company portfolio and packs several styling, mechanical, and feature upgrades over its predecessor. The new Ducati Monster is available in two variants – Standard and Plus. The Ducati Monster has a 937cc, Testastretta V2- 90-degree, liquid-cooled engine that makes 111bhp of power at 9,250rpm and a peak torque of 93N-m at 6,500rpm. The motor mates to a six-speed gearbox that benefits from an anti-slip clutch and quick-shifter.
Ducati Monster has also revised the ergonomics with a repositioned handlebar and footpegs. The handlebar sits closer to the rider while the footpegs are lower than before. Weight-saving measures, such as the new frame, lighter aluminium swingarm, and wheels help the new Monster looks even more light than the previous model. The advanced features on the new Monster include full-LED lighting and a Bluetooth-ready 4.3-inch TFT display. The Bluetooth module is available as an optional extra.
The hardware comprises 43mm upside-down front forks and a preload-adjustable rear mono-shock to handle the shock absorption tasks. The anchoring duties provide by 320mm twin discs with Brembo M4.32 monobloc four-piston callipers at the front and a single 245mm rotor with Brembo two-piston calliper at the back. The electronic aids include three riding modes (Sport, Urban, and Touring), wheelie control, traction control, cornering ABS, and launch control.
Ducati Monster weighs 188 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 14liters. Three colour options are available for this motorcycle- Ducati Red, Aviator Grey and Dark Stealth.
Ducati Bikes is a group of companies, best known for manufacturing motorcycles and headquartered in Borgo Panigale, Bologna, Italy. The group is owned by German automotive manufacturer Audi through its Italian subsidiary Lamborghini, which is in turn owned by the Volkswagen Group. No matter the era, it’s a feat to create something that has as much visual impact now as it did 20 years ago. It proves that however cliched, less is more, even when the industry and society are wildly different from the environment in which it was created.
