Monster 796 Review

With the new Monster 796, Ducati has its line-up of air-cooled standards. a throwback to the old 800 and places itself in the middle between the entry 696 and the more ferocious 1100.

All the feel very light, and easy to handle; despite the stance, the rider doesn’t any muscle at all. The 796 is slightly ergonomically than the 696 and its big brother the The seat height is a bit higher the lesser-, and slightly lower the larger-, capacity Monster.

The handlebar gives a very control of that stumpy end, directional changes are and the feel is feather-light.

If you’re a to tall rider, you’ll constant trouble reading the when riding in high mode, such as in the inner or on a congested highway. There’s pleasant about the instrument so I ignored it completely to such a that I forgot to take note of fuel consumption and things.

The only highly visible on the console is the gear change which is handy when it up on a fast B-road. Hopefully I rack up too many speeding as I hardly used the speedometer at all my test.

Nobody, least of all me me, really about any practical on a Monster. I treat a Monster a Monster should be treated, and such a fantastic chassis and big wheels and tires, it’s a case of having as much fun as all the time. The Monster 796 is a willing and participant in wheelies, stoppies, and

The 803cc air-cooled L-twin has enough extra oomph the 696 to make it a viable upgrade. The test of rolling off and then on in first gear does the extra capacity in the shape of a wheel lift, which the 696 is of. No such thing happens in gear, which does on the 1100.

The 803cc engine produces a 87 horsepower @ 8250 rpm and 58 ft/lbs of @ 6250 rpm but, despite good first to third acceleration, the top three gears are for slow speed stingy The 796 likes its revs a lot more the 1100, which is only You can’t let the revs go all the way down to rpm in top gear and still get massive

Most Ducati’s are performance and that goes also for the The acceleration above 100 mph is still and I felt it had all the high speed that it needs. You’re not protected from the wind at all a small cowling being in so it was enough for me to know that the is still pulling well 100 mph.

The clutch is light away from the last Monster’s, and just as good as its with a light and precise The brakes are easy to modulate and all the power you need to stop the lightweight medium Monster. always makes a Ducati is that light tubular and single sided swingarm and the 696 must do with a double-sided both the 796 and 1100 features the one.

The suspension is, for Ducati, fairly but still good enough hard riding not to bottom out and enough feel to have of fun even though they’re not The package consists of a 43mm USD and an adjustable mono shock at the

In town the Monster 796 is nearly and lane splitting is a piece of Not many bikes can take you from A to B in the city center in hour than a Monster of any I had perfect control of both brakes and clutch at all times and the of the bike is perfect.

The fact the Monster 796 is so light helps a too.

The Monster 796 is a natural town but also very enjoyable on B-roads thanks to the Ducati chassis. On the highways, you’ll be as by the wind as on other … but engine performance is sufficient for of miles both slow and

To avoid vibrations the engine has got a spot that doesn’t quite right with the speed limits, and I often down a gear to find spot. The midrange is good, but up in the rev range than a full on bike. The Monster 796 is not so strong 6000 rpm, but it can be ridden at rpm, which turns the into Monster Light.

leaves you with a choice of distinct Ducati Monsters in The 696 for the least demanding riders, the for those who consider high-performance to be a feature of every motorcycle, and the 796 slips right in-between
