Ducati monster 795

Recommended Posts

JaiLai    320

Has anyone bought one of these recently in Thailand, good or bad experience.

I had a look at their website, is there any lead time you must wait after ordering?

At 399K THB not a bad deal really...

Thoughts?

Thanks.

pay 50 k more and get the 796. Also 796 has ABS as standard.

Besides, it is a better bike.

As ll2 says, the 796 is the better option now. I was told one month wait for the 796 from Ducati Rama 3 but unfortunately they wouldn't do a trade-in on my existing bike so I didn't buy it.

Ducati don't seem interested in trade ins, I tried to trade in my 848 but they were not interested in phuket but were happy to do a sale or return for a percentage, odd.

Thanks for the info and suggestions gents.

Is there much difference in price throughout the outlets in Thailand as i travel about a lot, or is the service better in some places than others?

Thanks.

price is the same throughout, ducatithailand.com has the full price list, from my experience of buying 2 bikes there is no room for negotiation, i just about scraped a free t-shirt! Couldn't answer about the servicing apart from where I am in Phuket, so far so good, no complaints, although anything a bit more serious like when I had a faulty regulator was referred via Bangkok HQ, ended up being covered under warranty and the part delivered in 2 days.

They're great if you don't need any testicles. Worst seat I have ever sat on.

Haven't needed mine for years, they are an optional extra in a marriage smile.png

A 795 Monster was my first Thailand big bike, I owned it for about a year before I traded up to the Diavel. Excellent service from Ducati and I had a blast riding it, I don't think that you can go wrong with one.

It was a few years back that Ducati Thonglor stopped doing trade-ins. They were just getting too many and the forecourt was packed with secondhand Ducs they couldn't sell.

I hope more Ducati mechanics are being trained properly. Jay, their top guy who recently moved to he Vipawadee branch was trained in Italy and also trains Duc mechanics in the SEA region. He's very good. The others, last time I looked, were, how shall I say, very Thai in their style of work. Be careful at Rama 3. They botched up a job on my bike last year. Wasn't impressed.

What model is your existing bike?

The bike I wanted to trade was a 2008 Ninja 250 and I wasn't expecting top dollar either, that's why I was surprised. Back home I could have negotiated about 50% of what I was asking for the Ninja as a cash discount so it was strange that they'd give up a sale for such a small amount compared to the price of the 796.

I guess sales are good, no biggie though I wasn't 100% set on it anyway but a nice easy deal on the px would have swung it. I've got a feeling big bikes are going to come down in price a bit in the next 12 months so I can wait.

Yeah, I've never known Ducati to trade in non-Ducs.

Is this going to be your first big(ish) bike? Maybe go for something with a bit more oomph if you can. A middleweight like an R6 or CBR500/600, gsxr600 perhaps?

Oh ok, I thought Nikster traded in a Versys on a Ducati but I might be mistaken.

Already got a gsxr600, the 796 was meant to replace the Ninja as my city bike but I'll probably sell both later in the year and replace with one bike, probably 1000cc ish. Just need to decide between naked and supersport, can't make up my mind...
