The Monster family introduces the 796, an exciting addition to the line-up that combines the user-friendliness of the 696 with the sports character of the 1100.

Delivering 87hp, a dry weight of just 368 lb and optional ABS, the stylish new Monster 796 returns the magic of mid-range to the Monster family.

The Monster 796 is fitted with the micro-bikini fairing and single seat cover as standard, and features a new seat designed with a comfort-enhancing shape, further accentuated with stylish red stitching.

Additional new features also include a rear subframe constructed to accept new accessory grab-handles designed to provide a confidence-inspiring grip for the passenger, while blending into the natural line of the tail-end.

The riding position has also been revised by reducing the seat height by a full 10mm (compared to the Monster 1100) to, while the handlebars have been raised 20mm. These changes, together with the redesigned seat shape have improved posture and increased comfort.

With the brand new Desmodue 796 engine at the heart of the machine, a single-sided swingarm and revised ergonomics, the Monster 796 perfectly balances lifestyle performance with everyday functionality to enhance the original Monster spirit.

The new Monster 796 comes in traditional Ducati red, new arctic white silk or diamond black silk. All three colours are set against a red Trellis frame. They alos get black wheels, which feature a short red flash around the rim that creates a red stripe at speed.
