The Monster 795 which is a special version of the Monster 796 that Ducati has developed specially for developing countries is all set to be launched at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo this January. What makes this bike cheaper is the way it is engineered, thus enabling the customers to take it as a plus point. This cheaper version of the Monster 796 will sport different tyres, alloys and a double sided swing-arm as opposed to the single sided swing-arm that is used in the 796.
The Ducati Monster 795 will be powered by an 803cc L-twin, air cooled motor which is capable of producing 85 bhp of power at 8250 RPM and 78 Nm of torque at 6250 RPM. The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. Weighing on 167 kg, the bike proves to be much lighter for its segment. The 795 uses 120/60/ ZR 17 inch tyres at the front and 160/60/ ZR 17 inch tyres at the rear. The bike will sport Pirelli footwear. The Ducati Monster 795 will be available in red, white and black colors.
The bike will be assembled in Thailand and will be made available in various markets including Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, China, Thailand, Philippines and India. Ducati India plans to launch this motorcycle at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo with a price tag of Rs 5 lakh (ex-showroom). The 795 will be the cheapest Ducati and will be a competitor to the Kawasaki Ninja 650R and Hyosung GT650.
