BANGKOK, 3 October 2014 —— Ducati Thailand has unveiled the 2015 version of the legendary Monster S2R, together with the launch of the new Diavel – a bike that has revolutionised the Sport Cruiser segment.
Managing Director of Ducatisti Co. Ltd. or Ducati Thailand, Apichat Leenutaphong revealed that “for the past 11 years, Ducati Thailand has received favourable and warm receptions from our customers. We recognise the need to present a motorcycle that will make its rider stands out from the rest of the crowd. So, today we are re-launching the legendary motorcycle that has made its fame in 2007, but it will be based on 2015 technology. This is the new Monster S2R. We chose to go with the Monster 796 platform because it’s best represented the true character of the original Monster S2R, that is the “Desmodue” engine and the single-sided swingarm. It is without a doubt the most iconic Monster that truly transpires the DNA of the legendary naked bike.”
In addition, Ducati Thailand also unveiled the new Diavel for the first time in Thailand. This Diavel comes with enhanced design, better engine and technology, to make it even more sportier but still retains the full character and its one-of-a-kind look of the Ducati Diavel.
New motorcycles being unveiled at this launch event includes:
1. Ducati Monster S2R : with its distinctive white colour with a longitudinal red racing stripe, sporty red wheels, black handle bar and front fork, LED Turn indicators, making it the ultimate naked bike that represents not only a product of great ingenuity but also of pure emotion. It comes with 803cc L-Twin engine, desmodromic valve with 87 horsepower at the price of THBaht 459,900,-.
2. Ducati Monster S2R S Ti : raises the bar even higher with the Titanium Slip-on exhaust from Termignoni and short tail plate holder at the price of THBaht 524,000,-.
3. Ducati Diavel Dark : New Sport Cruiser with the enhanced design, better engine and technology, but retains the full character of the Diavel. Exclusively during the launch period, Diavel Dark will have the launch price of THBaht 849,990,-.
