The Monster 696 and 796, 13 different colors opens a new road to the world of Ducati Monster and becomes the ‘urban icon' of hand-built Italian naked motorcycles.


Monster ART

‘Logomania’ is the second collection of the innovative Monster Art project and a stunning tribute to famous Ducati logos and colour schemes that span more than 50 years of authentic brand heritage.

Changing the colour and character of any model in the current Monster line-up in just 10 minutes, is the genius of the Monster Art program and a feature that passionately supports the Monster culture of customisation.

Consisting of tank panels, micro-bikini fairing, single-seat cover and front mudguard, the kits have now become a modern canvas in the world of motorcycle art and a unique method of Monster personalisation.


Monster Story

In 1992 Ducati unveiled a new prototype that was to become an icon. Ducati’s creation awed the crowds and the world’s media of that year’s Cologne International Motorcycle show. The 900 Monster was a motorcycle that created a truly new niche – dramatically styled, minimalist in stature yet bristling with innovative engineering solutions.

The Monster’s radical styling has also provided the inspiration for an entire after-market sector specialising in hot-rod parts for this legendary machine. For this reason, rarely do you see two Monsters the same. This radical and refreshing design departure also influenced other manufacturers but, as the old adage states: imitation is the highest form of flattery…

The Monster is characterised by a long and successful history, by its introduction during the years of numerous cylinders and uncountable colour options, but above all by a constant technological evolution that this year brings us to the birth of two new versions: the Monster 696, Monster 696 and 796, 13 different colors and the Monster 1100, representative of a new era of Monster.

Less is Monster

The 'less-is-more' philosophy behind all Monsters underlines Ducati's never-ending pursuit of genuinely compact, high performance motorcycles, but these new models have succeeded in being even more 'pared down' than their predecessors.

Every single component has been redesigned and redeveloped so now more than ever, form follows function. With any details detracting from the Monster concept being eliminated, 'less-is-more' also means 'less-is-Monster'. Less weight plus more torque equals fun-filled riding.

Launched as an early entry model year 2011, the Monster 696 and 796, 13 different colors opens a new road to the world of Ducati Monster and becomes the ‘urban icon’ of hand-built Italian naked motorcycles.


Monster spec
Ducati have continued to listen to its passionate Monster owners and used their valuable feed-back in the design of the new Monster 696 and 796, 13 different colors. The riding position has been revised by reducing the 1100’s seat height by a full 10mm (0.4in) to 800mm (31.5in) and the combination of redesigning the seat shape and raising the handlebars by 20mm (0.8in) has improved posture and increased comfort. Combined with a dry weight of just 167kg (368lb), thanks to its new lightweight engine, and the option of being equipped with ABS, the new naked inspires confidence to make life simpler in the city.

Suspension up front is handled by user-friendly 43mm Showa forks, while the sporty Ducati single-sided rear swingarm is controlled by a single rear Sachs unit, with adjustable spring preload and return damping for passenger load optimisation.

In pure Monster style, the entire chassis set-up is unified into a sturdy, great handling package by a bright red Trellis frame. Lightweight and with incredible torsional stiffness, the large diameter tube construction flows into the cast aluminium rear sub-frame which matches the matte black rear swingarm and footrest hangers.

Twin 320mm semi-floating discs are gripped by radially mounted 4-piston Brembo callipers to provide powerful and progressive front-end braking with rider-friendly ‘feeling’, while the rear is equipped with a 245mm disc and 2-piston calliper, also by Brembo. The Monster 696 and 796, 13 different colors offers the added option of ABS to further underline the model’s focus on ease of use and everyday security.

The 17” wheels are in the five ‘Y-shape’ spoked style and produced in lightweight aluminium to keep the unsprung weight low and handling, braking and acceleration performances high. To differentiate the 796, the wheels sport a stylish pin-stripe for 60° of the circumference of the rim which creates a full circle of red when in motion. They roll on the same 180/55 rear and 120/70 Pirelli Diablo Rosso tyres enjoyed on the 1100.


Desmodue engine
The brand new 796 Desmodue power unit uses fully redesigned crankcases to save an incredible 1.2kg (2.64lb) over the 696 castings, and are responsible for the major part of the impressive 1.9kg (4.2lb) total saving over the 696 power unit. The clutch and alternator outer casings of the new engine are finished in carbon grey.

The crankshaft is designed with a lightweight 848-type flywheel and uses a 66mm stroke instead of the 696’s 57.2mm, helping to maximise power to an impressive 87hp (64kW) @ 8250rpm and torque to 58lb-ft (78Nm) @ 6250rpm while maintaining the smooth and enjoyable character, famous of all Desmodromic L-Twins. An oil cooler is fitted to protect power delivery by maintaining optimum efficiency.

The 803cc swept volume is compressed to a ratio of 11:1 – compared to the 696’s 10.7:1 – then injected and ignited by Siemens controlled electronics. The 2-1-2 catalytic exhaust system uses twin lambda probes and regulating valve to provide finer fuel mapping and Euro 3 conformity. The system’s lightweight and compact design is achieved by using 1mm thick tubing and terminates in the Monster’s signature twin lateral mufflers, stylishly updated with the latest style of heat guards.

An APTC ‘wet’ clutch gives a ‘slipper’ type action that prevents destabilising of the rear-end under aggressive down-shifting and also gives the extra benefit of a super-light feel at the lever, a great benefit in stop-start city traffic. The oil-bath clutch represents a power-enhancing weight reduction over the ‘dry’ system as well as having a quieter operation and requiring less maintenance.

The new easy-to-own Monster 696 and 796, 13 different colors offers competitive service intervals of 12,000 kilometres (7,500 miles).


Controls
The Monster 696 and 796, 13 different colors has enhanced comfort and control with 20mm higher bar-risers gripping sturdy tapered section aluminium handlebars.

Integral type Brembo master cylinders are used for both the clutch and brake systems and maintain a clean handlebar arrangement for the rider. They are fitted with user-friendly 4-point adjustable levers that provide easy-to-reach control for all hand sizes and the APTC clutch offers a super-light lever action ideal for use in the city.

Looking clean and minimalist in true Monster style, the bright white illuminated display provides all essential data by default, and far more by scrolling with the left-hand switchgear. Data includes speed, revs, time, scheduled maintenance, oil temperature and battery voltage, while warning lights illuminate for oil pressure, fuel reserve, turn indicators, high beam and neutral selection. In addition, the instruments present a reserve fuel trip, immobiliser status and automatic light-off function after 60 seconds with the key on as well as a memory to store lap times recorded by using the high-beam flash button as a stopwatch.

The display also doubles as a control panel for the activation of the Ducati Data Analyser (DDA) system, which is available as an accessory from Ducati Performance. The Monster 696 and 796, 13 different colors has been built ‘system-ready’ for the data acquisition kit, which consists of a special DDA software and memory key that slots into a USB style plug under the seat. The same plug also doubles as the connection for a handy new ‘battery maintainer’ available as an accessory from Ducati Performance.


New Monster, new features
While the Monster 696 and 796, 13 different colors is fitted with the micro-bikini fairing and single seat cover as standard, it also features a new seat designed with a comfort-enhancing shape, further accentuated with stylish red stitching. Furthermore, the rear sub-frame has been constructed ready to accept new accessory grab-handles designed to provide a confidence-inspiring grip for the passenger, while blending into the natural line of the rear-end.


Monster 696 and 796, 13 different colors in 13 colours
The new Monster 696 and 796, 13 different colors comes in traditional Ducati red, new arctic white silk or diamond black silk with all three colours against a red Trellis frame and black wheels, which feature a new red flash around 60° of the rim side, creating a red stripe at speed. Monster Art extends the 3 standard colours to 13 with the new collection, ‘Logomania’. Further aesthetic enhancements come from the footrest hangers finished in matte black to match the rear sub-frame and single-sided swingarm, new Ducati logo on the front mudguard and the Tricolore displayed proudly on the single-seat cover and fuel tank.
