Ducati gets off to a good start in India, delivers 100 bikes in Mumbai alone
Having recently entered India in the month of June, Ducati has got off to a flying start in the country in its second innings. The first run was highlighted by a not so sound partnership with the Shreyans Group’s Precision Motors. The same Indian company also helped to import vehicles from famous brands like Porsche, Ferrari and Maserati to our country in the past.
The partnership ended up to be pretty sour as Precision Motors was not really able to help Ducati do well by growing its image in the Indian market. When buyers came to purchase a Ducati motorcycle, they had to face a lengthy waiting period with many customers not receiving their bikes altogether. Same was the case with the aforementioned car manufacturers as well.
Anyhow, Ducati has just delivered 100 motorcycles to customers in the city of Mumbai with the Scrambler and Diavel models receiving the best response in the city. The Scrambler carries a price tag of Rs. 6.38 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi) and is the most affordable bike one can buy from the famous Italian company. Powered by an 800cc air-cooled, L-Twin engine that churns out 74 PS of power and 68 Nm of torque, the bike is made in Thailand. While the more expensive Diavel has been priced at Rs. 13.82 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi), the power cruiser gets its power from an 1198cc, L-Twin engine that generates 162 PS of power and 130.5 Nm of torque.
Ducati retails its range of premium motorcycles in India from dealerships located in the cities of Delhi, Mumbai and Gurgaon, with the last one being the company’s biggest showroom in the whole world. More showrooms in other cities will be opening shortly including the likes of Bangalore. Ducati’s Indian portfolio comprises of models like the Scrambler, Monster, HyperMotard, Diavel, HyperStrada, MultiStrada and the Panigale, which is the most expensive bike from the stable priced at a massive Rs. 46 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi).
