Motorcycle News

Ducati North America is excited to announce the arrival of the new Monster 796 with a national dealer premiere on June 25-26th.

The Monster 796 dealer premiere will take place at participating dealers with an event on the evening of Friday June 25th, where an unveiling and evening of festivities will take place. On Saturday June 26th the Monster will be available for test rides so one can experience firsthand the lightweight performance this new motorcycle has to offer.

As the first of the 2011 Ducati’s to arrive in North America, the Monster 796 represents a significant upgrade from its sibling Monster 696 for an exceptional value.

The latest of Ducati’s air cooled powerplants puts out 87hp and 56lb/ft of torque, propelling the lightweight 367lb Monster to its destination in a rapid and comfortable manner thanks to the 796’s improved seat design and raised handlebars.

The Monster 796 stands out in the Ducati lineup due to signature red elements such as the bike’s trellis frame, ¼ stripe on the wheels and more.

Monster riders who love to customize their bikes will be delighted at the arrival of the new Logomania body kits, designed to change the color of a bike in a matter of minutes using classic Ducati designs from over the years.

Also coming out alongside the Monster 796 is a set of accessory passenger grab handles, designed for added passenger comfort without sacrificing looks.

The Monster 796 will be available in white, black or Ducati red. The Monster 796 will arrive at a consumer friendly MSRP of $9,995. For more information about the 2011 Monster 796, and for a list of participating dealers please visit www.ducatiusa.com.
