2023 Ducati bike launches in India: details
Ducati will commence 2023 in India with deliveries of the recently launched DesertX adventure bike, followed by the launch of the Rs 15.95 lakh Monster SP, the more track-oriented variant of the Monster, in the second quarter of the year. The theme of track-focused bikes continues with the launch of the 999cc Panigale V4 R (as opposed to the standard Panigale V4 range’s 1,103cc mill), priced at Rs 69.99 lakh.
The fourth quarter of 2023 will see the Rs 29.72 lakh Multistrada V4 Rally – which gets a 30-litre tank and wire-spoke wheels as opposed to the standard model’s 22.5-litre unit and cast-alloy rims – make its way to India. It will be followed by the updated Ducati Scrambler line-up, which consists of the Icon (Rs 10.39 lakh), Full Throttle and Nightshift variants (both costing Rs 12 lakh).
The final launch of this year will be the ultra-exclusive, limited-edition Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini, featuring actual Lamborghini paint and a host of bespoke parts, priced at an eye-watering Rs 72 lakh, making it the most expensive Ducati when it goes on sale later this year.
