The Ducati Monster 795 was launched at the Auto Expo 2012 at a price of Rs 6.99 lakhs but now, few days on, Ducati India has dropped the price by a full lakh – it now retails at a very tempting Rs 5.99 lakhs, ex-showroom, Mumbai! Now that’s a cracker of a deal. It’s the cheapest Ducati on sale in India at the moment and now sits in the Rs 5-6 lakh bracket in the premium motorcycling segment.
In terms of power and torque output, the 795 is the same as the 796 - 85.8 bhp@8250 rpm and 8 kgm@6250 rpm. The front tyre is a 120/60 ZR17 while the one at the rear is a 160/60 ZR17. The 795 has a twin-disc setup at the front and a single disc at the rear. At 167 kg (dry), the 795 (like the 796) will be a fantastic motorcycle to ride both, in the city and in the twisties.
It’s a proper Ducati for hatchback money. Convincing the wifey for the Ducati purchase just got a whole lot easier, no?
