I rode the Hypermotard 796 a few months I was impressed with the bike’s new and immediately thought how nice it be to slip the 803cc mill a Monster chassis. Barely six later, the Monster 796 is here.

That solution would have made a good but Ducati wanted a three-bike range so opted to keep the 696 and fit the 796 engine into the Monster chassis to create a higher middleweight model. To show a bit upmarket, the Monster 796 is dressed up in fairing and has the same single-sided as its big brother.

The 796 also borrows its larger wider wheels, which Pirelli’s Diablo Rosso rather than the 696’s wheels and Angel ST rubber. The frame is identical on all three but the 796’s tubes get a bright-red It also has a new steel rear that has been beefed up to Ducati’s aftermarket grab

The Monster striking in standard white, red or paint, but the bike I rode at the in Bologna featured the stunning color scheme, which is one of styles available though new Monster Art customization program.

The Monster’s 803cc V-twin is identical to the Hypermotard’s, but a larger and less restrictive exhaust the Monster a leg up on its supermoto brother. The churns out a respectable 87 horsepower at rpm. That’s 6 up on the Hyper and 7 up on the Monster.

I’d have to say which Monster I was on as I climbed the bike outside the factory. One is a new handlebar riser that the one-piece bar by about an inch. from Monster owners that change, as well as the seat by a quarter-inch.

Ducati has an effort to make the Monster and they’ve done a fair The APTC slipper clutch’s is light and steering lock is enough to make U-turns Most importantly, though, is the that both handlebar are now reach-adjustable.

Although the digital instrument looks neat and the bar tach well, the speedo is too small to be legible.

Heading through the Borgo Panigale district the Ducati factory’s gates, the felt right at home. At a 370 pounds dry, it’s light, and it felt that way as I it through the traffic gaps. The motor responds well, there is a hint of abruptness to the annoying, but enough to make me whether the option of a softer mode for gentle riding, as Shiver has, would be a improvement.

Black paint on the hangers and exhaust shields and sweet single-sided swingarm are hints that you’re at a 796 rather than a 696. with a little more the mid-sized monster has slightly ergonomics.

The real advantage became as soon as I got onto an open and cracked the throttle open. anywhere above 3000 rpm the leapt forward, growling its airbox and accelerating with more enthusiasm than the 696, which is disappointingly below 6000 rpm. The midrange delivery made the 796 not quicker and more fun, but easier to ride, requiring shifting.

Handling was as good as you’d of a light, well-suspended bike fairly sporty geometry and a handlebar. There are some twisty roads in the hills Monte San Pietro to the southwest of and the Monster’s blend of flexible delivery and light, precise made it wonderfully agile in blind bends.

The suspension did a job when the pace heated up, It’s identical to that of the 696, with a non-adjustable Showa fork up front and a shock out back. Both were fairly firm and damped for sport riding, but suffered on rough pavement.

Ducati looks to have a skilful course with the range, which is now back up to models (though many if you count the optional ABS and various options). The entry-level 696 remains a value for riders who want an Monster with the full of signature Monster style. At the end, the 1100’s extra and more refined front end it unquestionably the best model for riders, unless they’re small.

And the Monster 796 does a good job of the gap in between, offering more of the power and style at a price only $1000 more that of 696. That just make it Ducati’s value.
