Default Ducati India discontinues Scrambler, Monster 821 & Panigale 1299 due to BS-IV regulations

Ducati has discontinued multiple bikes in India after the BS-IV regulations came into play from April 1, 2017. The discontinued bikes include the Ducati Scrambler, Monster 821 and Panigale 1299.

However, this discontinuation is being said to be a temporary step as replacements of the said bikes will be launched in India in the near future. The Scrambler range is powered by an 803 cc, Testastretta, twin-cylinder, air-cooled engine that churns out 74 BHP and 69 Nm of torque. This is the same engine that powers the recently launched Monster 797, which is BS-IV compliant. As a result, it won't take long for Ducati to plonk the updated power plant into the Scrambler and re-launch it as a BS-IV model.

Similarly, the Euro-IV Monster 821 has already been showcased at the EICMA show in Milan and is expected to soon be launched in India. The absence of the Scrambler series and the Monster 821 from the market will also allow Ducati India to aggressively push the recently launched Monster 797, which has now become the most affordable Ducati on offer in the country.

Meanwhile, the Panigale 1299 and 1299 S haven't yet been given the Euro-IV treatment in the International markets. In Europe, the Panigale 1299 range benefits from derogation exemptions, which allows manufacturers to sell limited number of Euro-III products that are at the end of their life cycle. It isn't yet known if Ducati is working on Euro-IV versions of the Panigale 1299. It is also being speculated that Ducati might replace the big Panigales with the V4 superbike that was recently announced at the 2017 MotoGP team launch and is expected to be introduced sometime next year. As a result, Ducati might just bring this new superbike to India to replace the discontinued Panigales.

Though they didn't sell much, folks who bought the Monster 821 and Scrambler will be seriously hit as their resale value will take a major nose-dive

The exciting thing about the new launches are the pricing for 797 and especially the Tiger killer (Multistrada 950).

Hope to see a lot of MS 950 on the road in near future

You think? I would imagine that second purchasers won't really care that much whether or not a vehicle they're buying is BS IV compliant or not, as long as its street legal. Speaking of updates, BS III / IV aside, anyway bikes keep bringing out updates almost every year / other year so someone buying a 2 - 3 / 4 year old bike again shouldn't care that much about it right?

I think you misunderstood my comment. It's not about BS III or IV.

It's about selling a bike that is not sold in India anymore by a manufacturer

Would I purchase such a bike even if it's pre-owned? I would certainly think more than twice and probably will NOT
