Ducati Monster 696 2014

At its launch six years ago, the Monster 696 represented the beginning of the new Monster line that combined major styling revisions with a technical makeover. The frame is a hybrid cast-aluminun and steel-trellis unit, while power comes from an 80-hp air-cooled V-twin. Although the Monster 696 is the smallest Ducati offered, it still contains plenty of premium features such as desmodrcmic valve actuation, digital fuel injection, adjustable clutch and brake levers, an integrated stopwatch/lap timer, and ABS—all as standard equipment.
