Ducati presents the new Monster 797, the bike with the essence of the Monster and Ducati values finally within everyone’s reach. Sporty, compact, essential but at the same time sophisticated and modern, the Monster 797 is the incarnation of all the Monster values and represents a way into the Ducati world. Everything on the Monster 797 takes us back to the iconic bike of the 1990s, reinterpreted in a modern key: from the tank to the trellis frame, including the twin-cylinder air-cooled engine and the circular headlight.

Monster 797 Design

With the Monster 797, the Ducati Design Centre has created a sporty and compact bike, with a dynamic, fresh design which encompasses all the Monster values. The tank is Monster in its purest form. Elegant and muscular at the same time, it has a fastening hanger at the front just like the Monster of 1993. The headlight, once again round, is the modern interpretation of what was used on the iconic naked fin right from the start. On the Monster 797, the frame is not just a structural component but it is a real design element and is once gain made as a single piece, from the rake to the tail, including the traditional tube handles for the passenger. The same concept is true of the air cooled Desmodue twin-cylinder engine whose cooling fins take us right back to the first generation Monster.
 

Desmo2

The Monster 797 is fitted with the air cooled 803 cm3 Desmodue twin-cylinder engine. This engine is a nod to the origins of the Monster but it is a modern Euro 4 homologated engine able to deliver 75 hp* at 8,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 69 Nm at 5,750 rpm. Characterised by an 88 mm bore and a 66 mm stroke, it has been designed to offer pure riding enjoyment, like a real Ducati, without ever seeming demanding.

*The power values indicated above are measured using a chassis dynamometer. Homologated power data, as quoted in the Bike Registration Document, are measured using an engine dynamometer according to the homologation regulation. The two power values may differ because of the different measurement equipments.

Exhaust System

The twin-cylinder engine of the Monster 797 has a single 50 mm diameter throttle body with two injectors downstream of the throttle, ensuring fluid distribution and precise control of the mixture strength taken in by each cylinder. The 2 in 1 exhaust has been designed to ensure optimal fluid-dynamics and excellent thermal protection for both the rider and the passenger.

Gearbox and Clutch

The gearbox is 6-speed while the APTC wet multiplate clutch with cable control ensures a much lighter lever actuation and provides additional advantages of excellent modulability: incredibly useful when managing continuous starting and stopping in city traffic. Furthermore, the clutch is equipped with power torque limiting rear wheel hopping during downshifting.

 

Trellis Frame

The Monster 797 has the traditional Ducati trellis frame in steel tubes. Essential, rigid yet at the same time light, it leaves the Ducati twin-cylinder on full display and, together with the steel tank, it is one of the characterising elements of the Monster. The frame combines perfectly with the double-sided swingarm fused in aluminium and thanks to the compact wheelbase of 1,435 mm ensures agility in traffic and stability at high speeds.

Wheels

The 10-spoke wheels of the Monster 797 are in light alloy.
The Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres are in made from double-compound technology to combine resistance during long trips with constant grip also during extreme leaning. These high-quality tyres apply Pirelli EPT technology (Enhanced Patch Technology) to maximise the contact area with any leaning angle and FGD (Functional Groove Design) to optimize performance in wet conditions. The dimensions of the tyre at the front are 120/70 ZR17, and 180/55 ZR17 at the rear.

Suspension

The Monster 797 has a 43 mm diameter Kayaba fork with a 125 mm wheel travel at the front. The rear suspension has an adjustable Sachs shock, with spring preload and on extension on the left side of the bike connected without progressive leverage to the frame and fork. The rear shock system has a maximum wheel travel of 150 mm.

Braking System

The Monster 797 is equipped with a Brembo braking system, fitted as standard with Bosch 9.1 MP ABS system with internal pressure sensor. To ensure optimum performance while braking as well as maximum safety, the Monster 797 is equipped with Brembo radially mounted Monobloc M4-32 4-piston callipers which act on two 320 mm diameter discs with axial brake pump and integrated oil tank. At the rear there is a single 245 mm disc on which, just like at the front, a single Brembo calliper acts equipped with pads with sintered friction material to increase efficiency. This component ensures the most highly performing brake system in the sector, a trait which has always been characteristic of all Ducati bikes.

 

The Monster 797 is available in three huge colours: Star White Silk, with red frame and wheels, the classic Ducati Red, with black frame and wheels and smart Dark Stealth with black frame and wheels.

Available also in Plus version, equipped with passenger seat cover and windshield.

ABS

To ensure optimum performance in braking and maximum safety, the Monster 797 is equipped with a Brembo braking system, fitted as standard with Bosch 9.1 MP ABS system with internal pressure sensor. This component ensures the most highly performing brake system in the sector, a trait which has always been characteristic of all Ducati bikes.

LCD Instrument Panel

The Monster 797 dashboard consists of a large LCD high-visibility screen with the main and secondary indications. The unit provides information on speed, rpm, totaliser, trip1 and trip2, engine oil temperature and clock. It also possible to display average journey time and speed.

Headlights and Indicators

The modern highly developed and technological headlight of the Monster 797 is integrated with the LED position lights. There is also an LED light at the rear. The Monster 797 includes the hazard warning lights function, which can be activated by pressing the designated button.
