The new Ducati Monster 797 - just cool and light and easy...

Ducati have recently unveiled the new Monster 797 at the EICMA, in Milan. This entry-level Monster is powered by a Euro 4-compliant 803cc V-twin that delivers 75bhp and 69Nm of torque, and the bike gets a new single-piece steel tube trellis frame with cast aluminium swingarm, 6-speed gearbox with wet multiplate APTC slipper clutch, LCD instrument panel, LED turn-indicators and taillamp, and a 16.5-litre fuel tank.

Suspension on the 2017 Monster 797 comprises a 43mm inverted Kayaba fork and Sachs monoshock that's adjustable for preload and rebound damping. The 797 rides on 17-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels, shod with Pirelli Diablo Rosso II rubber (120/70 ZR17 at the front, 180/55 ZR17 at the rear), which provides a good combination of grip and durability. There's twin 320mm brake discs with radial-mount 4-piston monobloc calipers at the front, 245mm brake disc at the rear and Bosch 9.1 MP ABS as standard.

We think this new entry-level Monster is pretty cool - should be fun to ride, without being challenging or intimidating in any way. Nice!
