Ducati Monster 796

Ducati‘s unique spin on the classic less-is-more philosophy is termed “Less is Monster.” Ironically then, building on the entry-level Monster 696, this 803сс version is actually a little taller, a little heavier, and a little more powerful. The Monster 796 wraps a steel trellis frame and minimalist bodywork around an air-cooled 803сс V-twin engine to create a highly responsive end lightweight middleweight naked bike. A relatively feathery 373-pound dry weight makes it a super-responsive ride, and standard antilock brakes add confidence and control in wet conditions.
