2013 Ducati Monster 796 (ABS)
The URBAN ICON
The Monster family introduces the 796, an exciting addition to the line-up that combines the user-friendliness of the 696 with the sports character of the 1100 Evo . Delivering 87hp (64kW), a dry weight of just 167kg (368lb) and optional ABS , the stylish new Monster 796 returns the magic of mid-range to the Monster family.
With the brand new Desmodue 796 engine at the heart of the machine, a single-sided swingarm and revised ergonomics, the Monster 796 perfectly balances lifestyle performance with everyday functionality to enhance the original Monster spirit.
