Ducati, a luxury motorcycle brand, has introduced the Monster SP in India. This model, which is ultra-compact, essential, and lightweight, embodies the essence of Ducati. The bike is priced at INR 15.95 lakhs (ex-showroom) and is available for booking at all Ducati dealerships in India. Delivery has already started.
The overall design of the Monster SP is similar to the standard variant, but it has several distinguishing features. The passenger seat cowl and blacked-out parts add to its aggressive styling. The Monster SP also has higher-specification hardware, including Ohlins-sourced NIX 43mm upside-down front forks and an Ohlins rear monoshock, both of which are fully adjustable for suspension tasks. Furthermore, it boasts a MotoGP-inspired livery.
The braking system of the Monster SP is equipped with high-quality hardware. It comprises twin 320mm front discs that work in tandem with Brembo Stylema monoblock four-piston callipers to provide efficient stopping power. At the back, a single 245mm rotor is paired with Brembo two-piston callipers to complement the front brakes. Apart from the superior braking performance, the Monster SP features a stylish projector-style headlight with LED DRL, a muscular fuel tank with integrated front turn indicators, a step-up seat, a compact fly-screen, a side-slung twin-pod exhaust, and 17-inch alloy wheels on both ends to add to its aesthetic appeal.
The Monster SP comes with full-LED lighting and a 4.3-inch colour TFT display as standard. The Ducati Multimedia System and heated grips are optional. The console on the Monster SP displays various readouts, such as the lap timer, fuel gauge, and air temperature. Additionally, electronic rider aids are featured, including a launch control system, three ride modes (Sport, Road, and Wet), cornering ABS, traction control, wheelie control, power modes, and a quick-shifter.
Furthermore, the Monster SP is powered by a 937cc, twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor that produces 109.9bhp at 9,250rpm and a peak torque of 93Nm at 6,500rpm. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox. Besides this, the maintenance intervals stand at 15,000km or 24 months. The bike boasts a 14-litre fuel tank and weighs 186kg (kerb).
The latest Monster SP will compete with the Triumph Street Triple RS, Kawasaki Z900, and BMW F 900 R in the Indian market.
