Ducati is celebrating the success of its sports naked bike, the Monster 821 in India. The company is offering free Termignoni exhaust on the Monster 821 and the Monster 797+ as a part of its celebrations. The Italian exhaust manufacturer is the exclusive supplier for Ducati’s performance exhaust accessories. The exhaust helps improve the sound and the performance of the bikes.
The Italian marque is also giving its Ducati Quick Shift as a complementary accessory, although only on the Monster 821. The quick shifter helps in easier riding in the city by reducing the clutch-gear effort. The DQS costs between Rs 20,000-25000. The offer will be valid from April 1 to April 30 at all dealerships across the country.
The company said the Monster 821 is one of the largest selling sports naked in India with over 100 bikes sold in under one year. The Monster 821 is the new-gen iteration of the iconic Ducati Monster 900. The Monster 900 had introduced the sport naked category to the world more than 25 years ago. Over the years, Ducati has sold over 3,20,000 units of its Monster range around the world.
The Monster 821 makes 107bhp of power @ 9,250 rpm and 86Nm of torque @ 7,750 rpm whereas the smaller Monster 797 makes 72bhp @ 8,250 rpm and 67Nm of torque at 5750 rpm. The 821 starts at Rs 10.99 lakh and the 797 starts at Rs 8.60 lakh.
