We have good news to all superbike enthusiasts! 

Ducati Philippines, the exclusive distributor of Ducati bikes in the country, has recently unveiled its budget-price middleweight bike—the Ducati Monster 795—specifically developed for the Asian market.

Combining the engine of the 796 and the chassis of the 696, the new M795, as it is called, is considered to be the most affordable Ducati model in the Monster range—priced at Php. 570,000.

 

Ducati has been in the motorcycle world since 1950 and the Italian marquee has a reputation for building stylish, high-performance machines.

 

According to Mirko Bordiga, Chief Executive Officer of Ducati Asia Pacific, “Due to the growth of the Asian market, Ducati decided to make a big investment with the Thailand assembly plant mainly to fulfil the needs of Asian clients. The strategic location chosen to assemble Ducati motorcycles in Thailand enable us to favourably comply with local import tax requirement. The result is not a cheaper bike, but a pure Ducati DNA motorcycle—fully designed and engineered in Italy with fewer duties of taxes.”

The Ducati Monster began its styling exercise in 1992, when designer Miguel Angel Galluzzi, created the first Ducati Monster. Since its inception, the Ducati Monster series has always been a “dream bike” of every motorcycle enthusiasts throughout the world for its minimalistic design.

Known as a naked bike characterized by an exposed engine and frame, the Monster 795 is expected to place a tougher competition among existing bikes in the 600cc category. The M795 is currently assembled in Thailand and also available in China, India, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam and Singapore.  

 

The 2-1-2 catalytic exhaust system uses an efficient pre-silencer configuration with twin lambda probes providing finer fuel mapping and Euro 3 conformity.

 

We tested the new Monster 795 on the streets—and on the road—the bike attracts many bystanders. One thing for sure—is that this bike provides an intimidating look because of its unique appearance and naked body frame. At first glance, the M795 body frame displays an extraordinary balance between sports performance and sheer riding pleasure. Meanwhile, the bright white illuminated display of the M795 provides all the essential data—which include: speedometer, rev counter, time, scheduled maintenance, oil temperature, trip fuel, warning light for low pressure, fuel level, fuel reserve, and immobilizer.

 

Ducati's M795 simple digital instrumentation provides an array of data on command available at your fingertip.

 

Now if you’re stuck on EDSA on Friday traffic, the Ducati Monster 795 is easy-to-ride. The bike has a shorter seat height (770 mm) specifically designed for Asian bikers. The upright riding position of the M795 gives every rider a comfortable ride.

 

The engine of the Monster 795 is the legendary Desmodue, air cooled, Dual Spark L-Twin engine that provides enough torque to exit the most challenging of corners.

 

Nestled within the naked frame of M795 is the 803cc, Desmodue, L-twin cylinder, air-cooled and dual spark engine matted with 6-speed gears that provides excellent power and riding comfort. Speed addicts who love to ride on a long trip would be amazed on how the 15-liter fuel tank of M795 works.
