Ducati Malaysia (Next Bike Sdn Bhd) told the tale of a new Monster as it launched the 796 Corse Stripe at Ducati Centre Petaling Jaya today.
The latest incarnation of the Monster series combines the user-friendliness of the 696 with the sporty nature of the 1100 and brings the magic of the mid-range back to the Monster family.
“Still a roaring success more than 20 years after its sensational debut at the Cologne Motorcycle Show back in 1992, the Monster range continues to captivate motorcyclists across the globe with its subtle evolution. The 796 is a refined and sophisticated machine which boasts the unmistakable Monster style and has become the new ‘urban icon’ of hand built Italian naked motorcycles,“ said Datuk Wira SM Faisal Tan Sri SM Nasimuddin, NAZA Group of Companies Joint Group Executive Chairman.
Present at the event were En Nik Danial Nik Mahmood, Vice President of NAZA Two Wheels Division and Mr. CW Juan, General Manager of Next Bike Sdn Bhd.
“This mid-sized Monster is bound to become a new favourite amongst Malaysian riders and we estimate that this model will contribute 35% of Ducati’s sales for 2014. Available to the local market as Completely Knocked Down (CKD) units from Thailand, the Monster 796 Corse Stripe offers exceptional value for the price of RM63,888 (net selling price),” stated Datuk Wira SM Faisal.
