Ducati recently unveiled a version of its popular Monster naked motorcycle that's developed specifically for the Asian market.

Known as the Monster 795, the motorcycle is basically a hybrid variant that combines the chassis of the Monster 696 with the engine of the Monster 796, giving it an output of 85hp and 78Nm of torque squeezed into a tighter, nimbler package.

"Ever since its first appearance the Monster has been an undisputed Italian-made icon, a symbol of Ducati's unique history and the embodiment of a winning 'less is more' philosophy. Its seductive, essential lines represent an extraordinary balance between sports performance, sheer riding pleasure and awesome design. The Monster 795 is the definitive naked sports bike and a lifestyle icon of unmatched brilliance," Ducati said in a statement.

According to Ducati, the Monster 795 will be available in Thailand, China, Inda, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Phillipines, Vietnam and Singapore.
