    Wife is not comfortable on the rear seat and the bike comes without grab handles. Have ordered them. Another option is to go for a touring seat.

    But wife accompanies me only for small city rides but the intent is to definitely go around places. In that case, will have to go for a touring seat. Not now but a few months down the line...

    ducati is indeed charging a massive premium on its bikes .848 evo costs 5.7l in usa ,and in india 15lakhs, whats the excess for ??
    ps- the massive rent for the lavelle road showroom is paid by the bike buyers only, why such a premium place when they sell only few bikes ,showroom is become sort of a museum for commuters. thank god they didnt open shop in ub city mall.

    Every manufacturer does that. If one has to ride in India, one has to pay what it costs here.

    Read that you are looking for a bike cover.

    See this - Covers

    Bluevolt has one for his ninja and it comes with a heat shield for the exhaust area. It's thick, pretty heavy and very durable. You can even lock the cover to the wheels so no pesky kid will lift the cover and play mischief with the bike. Oh yeah, he has the rainex variant.

    IIRC, Performance Racing Store used to sell them.

    "What the hell is that thing" was my first reaction when I first saw the Ducati Monstro when i was a kid. The Hunky looks always fascinated me and made me think that it was the fastest bike. The Ducati line up Still fascinates me. Lol.
    Well I must say sir, that is one awesome bike, no nonsense bike. Does what its meant to do and does it in style. Congrats. I too am contemplating a Monster 796 by year end. Lets see, if I do, well, i'll be fulfilling my childhood dream.
    A fact -- It takes more love to share the pillion seat, than to share the bed.

    I dont think so. Their site only lists Nelson Rigg and Silvertech, while Oxford has names such as Rainex, stormex, etc.

    As long as the cover is not thin like those used for car's it should be OK. Cos the thin ones tear pretty easily.

    The Oxford ones are like tarpaulins.
