2011 Ducati Monster 796 | Quick Look

2011 Ducati Motorcycle

The combination of a hard pulling, air-cooled L-twin motor with iconic desmodromic drive, plus a steeply raked front end for exacting handling, makes the Ducati Monster 796 a compelling stop between the (re)entry level 696 and more demanding 1100 bikes in the Italian company’s naked bike range.

Unusually customizable for a sport bike, Ducati offers Logomania-a selection of ten interchangeable (in 10 minutes) graphics kits that consist of tank panels, a micro-fairing, single-seat cover, and front fender.
