Description

Bike Details

ENGINE

The Monster 797 is powered by the air-cooled 803cm³ Desmodue twin. Though inspired by the Monster’s roots, it is a modern, Euro 4 homologated engine, able to unleash 75 hp* of maximum power at 8250 rpm. Characterised by 88mm bore and 66mm stroke, it has been designed to offer sheer enjoyment without ever proving difficult to ride. The 2 in 1 exhaust has been designed to guarantee optimum fluid dynamics and excellent heat protection for the rider and passenger. The engine of the Monster 797 is also competitive in terms of its maintenance intervals, with services required every 12,000 kilometres.

Gearing and clutch

The Desmodue is equipped with a six-speed gearbox and APTC multidisc wet clutch with control cable, which guarantees a light clutch lever action and offers optimum modulation, a great help when it comes to managing continual start-stop action in city traffic. The clutch is also equipped with the anti-wheelie function, which keeps the bike stable even during aggressive shifting, typical of sports riding.

Power and torque

The Desmodue engine of the Monster 797 unleashes 75 hp* horsepower and maximum torque of 6.93 kgm at 5750 rpm. Thanks to the 50mm single throttle body with two sub-butterfly injectors, power delivery is fluid and full at any speed, a stand-out characteristic of all Ducati twins, and ensures a rapid response to any twist of the throttle. The constant torque curve, with 90% of maximum power available between 4000 and 8500 revs, ensures maximum riding enjoyment with minimal use of the clutch.

CHASSIS

Frame

The Monster 797 is equipped with the traditional Ducati steel trellis frame. Essential, rigid but also lightweight, it leaves the Ducati twin on view and, together with the steel tank, is one of the characteristic elements of the Monster. The frame marries perfectly with the cast aluminium double-sided swingarm and, thanks to the compact 1435mm wheelbase, ensures agility in traffic and stability at high speed.

Suspension

The Monster 797 is equipped with a 43 mm Kayaba fork with 125 mm travel. Rear suspension comprises a Sachs shock, with adjustable spring preload and rebound, positioned on the left side of the bike and connected without progressive linkage to the frame and swingarm. The rear shock system boasts maximum travel of 150 mm.

Rims and tyres

The ten-spoke rims of the Monster 797 are in lightweight alloy, with a 120/70 ZR17 at the front and 180/55 ZR17 at the rear. The Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres are produced in a double compound to ensure resistance over long-range trips and continuous grip even at extreme lean angles. These high-quality tyres apply Pirelli EPT (Enhanced Patch Technology) to maximise the area of contact at any lean angle and FGD (Functional Groove Design) to optimise their performance in wet conditions.

Brakes

The Monster 797 is equipped with a Brembo braking system. To ensure optimum performance and maximum safety during braking, two 4-piston M4-32 monoblock radial callipers at the front act on 320mm discs, with an axial brake pump and integrated oil tank. At the rear is a single 245mm disc, with a calliper equipped as per the front with pads produced in a sintered material to increase efficiency. The standard equipment is completed with the Bosch 9.1 MP ABS system with internal pressure sensor.
