Ducati has launched the top-spec SP variant of its famous Monster at Rs 15.95 lakh (ex-showroom, India). This SP version is Rs 3 lakh more expensive than the standard Monster.
While the standard and SP versions share a similar overall look, the styling cues comprise a projector-style headlight with LED DRL, a compact fly-screen, a muscular fuel tank with integrated front turn indicators, a step-up seat, a side-slung twin-pod exhaust, and 17-inch alloy wheels on both ends. The suspension and brake systems that are available are the greatest mechanical differences between the standard Monster and the SP model. Ohlins NIX 30 fork and Ohlins monoshock, both fully adjustable, are used to suspend the SP. Brembo, an Italian brake manufacturer, is responsible for the braking system, which features premium Stylema callipers that clamp down on dual 320mm discs.
Full-LED lighting and a 4.3-inch colour TFT display are among the Monster SP’s standard features, the Ducati Multimedia System and heated grips are optional upgrades. There are numerous readouts on the panel, including a lap counter, fuel gauge, and air temperature. In the meantime, the electronic rider aids include a quick-shifter, three ride modes (Sport, Road, and Wet), cornering ABS, traction control, and wheelie control.
The Monster SP is powered by a liquid-cooled, 937cc L-twin engine that produces 111 hp at 9,250rpm and 93 Nm at 6,500rpm. This engine is paired with a 6-speed gearbox and a bidirectional quickshifter.
In the Indian market, the new Ducati Monster SP goes up against rivals like the Triumph Street Triple RS, BMW F 900 R, and Kawasaki Z900. Bookings for the new Monster SP are currently available throughout India, and deliveries will begin shortly.
