Daisy Bopanna's Ducati

Actors buying expensive bikes is a common thing in India; however, we have a few actresses from the industry who have shown their love for two-wheelers in the past. Indian actress Daisy Bopanna is one such example. The actress, who is popular in the Tamil and Kannada film industry, recently took delivery of her brand-new Ducati Monster superbike. Not only did she buy a new bike, but she also gave it a nickname. She calls it “Anandi.”

The video has been shared by Daisy Bopanna on her Instagram page. The actress posted the video with a caption, “Officially my baby now. Named her “Anandi” – my gateway to heaven. Seriously such a pleasurable bike. Crazy speed, absolutely comfortable, just sheer bliss. Can’t question a @ducatiinfinity. Thank you, my fef”

The Monster brand of Ducati is almost 25 years old, and under this brand, Ducati offers naked sports bikes. The model bought by Daisy here is the current generation model which was launched in the market back in 2021. The motorcycle features an updated exterior design, looking a lot leaner than the previous version.

The headlight design and the ring-type LED DRLs are new additions. Ducati replaced the trellis frame with an aluminum frame and an aluminum swingarm inspired by the Panigale V4. The sub-frame of the Monster is made of glass fiber-reinforced polymer (GFRP), making it stronger and lighter than before.

The motorcycle comes with 43 mm USD forks at the front and an adjustable monoshock at the rear. The 17-inch wheels on this motorcycle are also said to be lighter than before. At the front, the Monster gets twin 320 mm discs, and rear braking duties are handled by a 245 mm disc. Ducati is offering features like ABS, cornering ABS, power launch, traction control, and wheelie control, along with ride-by-wire and three riding modes – Sport, Touring, and Urban.

Coming to the heart, the Ducati Monster is powered by a 937-cc, L-twin, liquid-cooled engine. This is the same engine that does duty on the HyperMotard and Ducati SuperSport. This engine generates 110 Bhp and 93 Nm of peak torque in the Monster. This engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox and also comes with a bi-directional quick shifter as standard.

The price for a brand-new Ducati Monster 937 starts at Rs 12.94 lakh, ex-showroom, and goes up to Rs 15.95 lakh, ex-showroom. We are not sure which one the actress actually bought in this case.

While we have seen many actors on the road with their expensive motorcycles, we have rarely seen actresses with an interest in two-wheelers. In Bollywood, we have Gul Panag, who owns a couple of motorcycles like Royal Enfield Electra, BMW F650 Funduro, Triumph Bonneville, and a Jawa 42. Other actresses like Sonakshi Sinha, Kalki Koechlin, and Divyanka Tripathi have also been spotted riding bikes.

If you come down to the South Indian film industry, especially Malayalam, we have Manju Warrier, who recently got her two-wheeler license. She fell in love with motorcycles during a trip with Tamil actor Ajith to the Himalayas. Soon after returning, she bought herself a brand-new BMW R1250 GS adventure tourer motorcycle.
