The ultimate streetfighter from the Italian marquee

There is a thing with Ducati and its naked streetfighters. While someone will reckon Ducati for giving us some exciting and legendary faired superbikes like the 999, 1098 and Panigale, it is the range of its streetfighters which have been the easily accessible fun tools for most of the Ducati fans across the world. In the past, the Monster range and Streetfighter sold like hot cakes and played a major role in the expansion of the Ducati family.

Now, as the Streetfighter series has made its way in the books of history, the expectations from the Monster sub-brand have naturally reached a new height. Which is why Ducati refurbished its Monster range by launching an all new middle-weight variant of the motorcycle in the face of Monster 797 as well as a range-topping version in the form of the Monster 1200. But in order to make its roadster platform even more aggressive, Ducati did come up with a fiercer avatar of the Monster 1200. Dubbed as Monster 1200 S, the motorcycle is positioned between the standard Monster 1200 and the most powerful roadster from Ducati ever, the Monster 1200R.

Now, as a periodic ritual of refreshing its models, Ducati recently gave the Monster 1200 S a minor facelift, which has enhanced both the aesthetic appeal as well as performance while on the go. Here’s our take on what all changes make the new Monster 1200 S different from the older one:-

Ducati has taken down eight BS-III models from the shelves.

Ducati has taken down eight BS-III models from the shelves.

Along with introducing new models, they will replace the BS-III models with BS-IV ones.

As you all know, starting from April 1st, 2017, the Supreme Court has ordered all manufacturers to stop registering and selling vehicles still running on BS-III engines. To clear them before the deadline all dealers who had stock started levying massive discounts on their products, and some even lost money in this process. The industry took a ₹ 600 crore hit due to the three-day discount fest.

Then there were few motorcycles that just did not sell despite the discounts. This was the cue for the manufacturers to take them off the shelves completely and get a new replacement machine for the same ones. While all other manufacturers have already replaced them, Ducati has been on the sluggish area with respect to this. Only this week is when the Italian brand took down eight models from its Indian line-up. The brand will re-launch those models with BS-IV spec models and also introduce a few more to the country’s model list.

2017 Ducati Monster 797

The bill maker of Ducati

If there is one range of motorcycles which has made the brand ‘Ducati’ accessible to most of its fans, it is the ‘Monster’. With the Monster series of motorcycles, Ducati has managed to churn out huge volumes and increase its sales. The Monster was Ducati’s first attempt at making proper streetfighters, apart from fascinating the enthusiasts with its fully faired motorcycles.

Years have passed, and Ducati, in order to expand its global presence, came with Monster 795 a few years back. The Monster 795 was specifically crafted keeping the emerging markets of developing nations in mind, including that of India. In Ducati’s previous stint in the Indian market, the Monster 795 was pegged as the most significant model of its lineup, primarily due to its affordable pricing.

Now, as we all know that the Monster 795 has departed into the history books as one of the most successful entry-level Ducati in its entire history, the Italian manufacturer has filled the void left by the Monster 795 with the all new Monster 797. Touted to be the spiritual successor of the Monster 795, the Monster 797 has replaced the Monster 821 as the most affordable model of the Monster family and will co-exist with the Scrambler series to act as the perfect gateway to be a part of the Ducati family.

Premiered for the very first time at the INTERMOT 2016, the Monster 797, needless to say, has its eyes on the Indian market as well, as it will serve as the aptest model for the positively growing middleweight segment, a huge share of which Ducati intends to grab. Here’s our comprehensive review of the all new Ducati Monster 797:-
