2011 Ducati Monster 696 | Quick Look

2011 Ducati Motorcycle

The smallest of the Ducati Monster line, the 696 presents itself as a bike willing to accommodate new riders, as well as those returning to the fold after an absence from two-wheeling.

Power develops in a predictable manner, but the Desmodromic motor has a short stroke and is capable of producing 80 horsepower at 9000 rpm.

That leaves plenty of room for warming up and casual riding before twisting the throttle hard.

Pirelli’s newer Angel ST tires show that Ducati style extends all the way to the rubber of this fun machine.
