New Delhi: At last Ducati Monster 795 can be yours for Rs 6.99 lakh, ex-showroom. The Monster 795 was officially launched at the 2012 Auto Expo by Mirko Bordiga, Ducati Asia Pacific CEO and Ashish Chordia Ducati India CEO.

This Ducati which has been specifically developed for the Asian markets now becomes the most affordable Ducati in the Indian market.

It has an 803cc L-twin, air cooled engine which produces 87PS of power and 78Nm of torque at 6250rpm. It has a six speed gear box. To bring the cost down, the 795 has a double-sided swing arm instead of the single on the 796.

It will also have 3-spoke alloy wheels and not the five-spoke ones on the 796.

Considering that the 795 will be made at Ducati's Thailand facility it was initially thought that the price of the bike would be around Rs 5-6 lakh but today’s announcement has meant that many will now have to rework their budgets.

With the Triumph Street Triple now available at Rs 5.75 lakh, the Kawasaki Ninja 650R at Rs 4.57 lakh and the Hyosung GT650N at Rs 4.6 lakh (all prices ex-showroom) Ducati will have to bank on their premiumness to draw in the customer.
