Ducati India today announced the launch of two new models to add to its India lineup of motorcycles. Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati introduced its Monster 797 and the Multistrada 950 at Rs 7.77 lakh. Going by their engine displacement, its easy to point out that these would be positioned as entry-level models in Ducati's motorcycle range. Booking for the new Ducati Multistrada and the Monster are now open.
The Ducati 797 that is priced at Rs 7.77 lakh looks quite single and not as aggressive as its 'Monster' branding. The design is fairly simple and practical, bringing nothing new to the existing design of its bigger siblings (821 and the 1200), keeping its weight in check.
The 797 is powered by an 803cc 90 degree V-twin, which is the same as the one in the Scrambler. It produces 75 hp or power and 68.9 Nm of peak torque.
While the design looks similar to the bigger Monsters, the chassis below is all new. There is a single-unit trellis frame, 43mm forks on the front and a monoshock at the rear.
Coming to the tech, Ducati has included an LCD screen. The motorcycle also brings traction control and ABS as standard.
Next up is the Multistrada 950 which is an adventure tourer with the mechanics of the Hypermotard. While the 950 shares its wheelbase with the bigger Multistrada, it uses a 19-inch alloy wheel up front and a 17-inch alloy wheel at the rear.
Being an adventure tourer, there's 170 mm of travel upfront. There's a twin-cylinder 937cc Testastretta engine that develops 113 hp and 96.2 Nm of torque.
The bike features the usual four riding modes, adds ride-by-wire, adjustable ABS and traction control and the large LCD instrument panel which is now a Ducati standard.
