Ducati India has dropped a teaser on social media announcing the launch date for the much-awaited Monster SP performance motorcycle. The Ducati Monster SP will be arriving on May 2, 2023, and is one of the many motorcycles the Italian bike maker announced for India at the start of the year. Prices were also announced at the time with the Monster SP retailing for 15.95 lakh (ex-showroom, India). However, prices could vary based on current exchange rates and other factors.

The Ducati Monster SP is based on the standard Monster but gets special treatment with more equipment on board. This includes a new projector-style headlamp with LED DRL. There’s also a compact flyscreen, front indicators placed on the fuel tank shrouds, a step-up seat and a twin-pod exhaust mounted on the side. The bike carries a red and black dual-tone paint scheme and rides on 17-inch alloy wheels.
