When designing the Monster 696 Ducati’s engineers have spent a lot of time to carefully refine the bike’s ergonomics. Thereby elements like the fuel tank, seat height and the steering lock were especially designed to maximize comfort.

The 20th Anniversary edition is offered with a series of distinctive features such as the 1986 Ducati logo, the same colors as the 1992 Monster 900 and 90s style wing mirrors.

When Ducati launched the the first-generation Monster bikes - the M900 in 1993, the M600 in 1994, and the M750 in 1995 - it paved way to a new line of naked street fighters that was to become a Ducati staple in the coming years.

The Monster was designed by Miguel Angel Galluzzi, who built the bike at the behest of Massimo Bordi. He once said that this bike was what Marlon Brando would have ridden in The Wild One, had he been able to get one.

The Ducati Monster then paved the way for this particular bike, the Monster S4R, which made its debut in 2001 packing a 916 cc liquid-cooled DOHC Desmo V-twin engine with a six-speed transmission, semi-floating Brembo disc brakes, light wheels, and Showa inverted forks.

This particular bike is the actual test mule in which the 916 motor was fitted, when the project was being developed. It’s extremely rare for a developmental bike to come to market, especially one with such an obviously low set of matching numbers.

At the 2012 RM Auctions in Monaco, the bike was sold at a price of €2,340, which is about $2,900 based on current exchange rates.

Ducati’s ’less-is-more’ philosophy behind all of its Monster line bikes underlines the Italian bikemaker’s never-ending pursuit of genuinely compact, high performance motorcycles. But what’s really impressive is that these new models have succeeded in being even more ’pared down’ than their predecessors.

Every single component on the new Ducati Monster 795 has been redesigned and redeveloped so it’s become far more imposing than what it already is.

Visually, the Monster 795 now features a simple digital instrumentation that provides an array of data on command or, at a glance, just speed and revs. Everything you need to know while riding this Monster, including scheduled maintenance warning, oil temperature, trip odometer, lap time, fuel reserve, warning light for low oil pressure, turn signals, over-rev warning, immobilizer and neutral warning light, is already at your disposal.

The digital display is programmed with a stopwatch function that, when enabled, can be triggered by using the high-beam flash button and each recorded time stored in a memory.

At the heart of the Monster 795 is Ducati’s legendary 803cc L-Twin cylinder, 2 valve per cylinder Desmodromic, air cooled engine that produces an unmistakable 87 horsepower while also providing enough torque to exit the most challenging of corners. The impressive torque, typical of the Ducati L-Twin engines, will excite with every twist of the throttle, while also giving riders the unmistakable performance credentials that could only come from a Ducati.

Believe it or not, Ducati has launched a Diesel Monster 1100 EVO . Trust us though, it’s not what you think. When we say Diesel, we’re speaking of the Italian clothing brand that sponsors the Ducati Team in MotoGP and has also launched a Ducati apparel collection so that riders can look fashionable on their new bike.

The 2012 Ducati Monster 1100 Evo was launched alongside the apparel collection on March 15, 2012 at the Diesel store in Soho, New York City. Ducati calls the bike "urban military chic." The exclusive ’Diesel Brave Green matte’ paint on the tank and rear fairing delivers a rugged military vehicle feel, especially while set against the black that covers almost every other part. To pay homage to the bike’s racing heritage, the shock and the Brembo calipers are painted yellow. Expect this bike to set you back a cool $13,795.

The name pretty much says it all as far as this Ducati super bike is concerned. The Monster 696 is a true beast of the open road, complete with a ’less-is-more’ philosophy that underlines Ducati’s never-ending pursuit of a genuinely compact, high performance motorcycle.

Every single component of the Monster 696 has been redesigned and redeveloped to adhere to the tried-and-tested adage of form following function. The Monster’s radical styling has also provided the inspiration for an entire after-market sector specializing in hot-rod parts for this legendary machine. For this reason, rarely do you see two Monsters the same.

In terms of performance, the Monster 696 is no slouch. It comes packed with a 696cc L-Twin cylinder, 2 valve per cylinder Desmodromic, air cooled engine that produces inane levels of power and torque numbers. To complement the unbridled rage of the Monster 696, Ducati put in an APTC ‘wet’ clutch that gives a ‘slipper’ type action, preventing destabilizing 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 or during longer journeys. Meanwhile, the 21-plate oil-bath clutch (11 friction and 10 steel) represents a power-enhancing weight reduction over the ‘dry’ system as well as having a quieter operation and requiring less maintenance.

The new crankcases hug the gearbox internals much closer to create a smaller and more compact outer profile and achieve considerable weight savings over previous cases.

Ducati will be unveiling the 2012 Monster 1100 EVO at the New York International Motorcycle Show (IMS). This new model will be the new flagship for the air-cooled Monster family and sales will begin in the Summer 2011 at a price of $11,995.

The 2012 Ducati Monster 110 EVO is powered by a 100 HP Desmodue Evoluzione engine - the most powerful air cooled Ducati ever. The new 1100 EVO is offered with the new "Ducati Safety Pack", a simple and effective combination of adjustable Ducati Traction Control (DTC) and ABS brakes designed to aid rider safety. Also the new APTC wet clutch which ensures quiet operation and long life will be on the equipment list.

The new APTC wet clutch works with a race-like ‘slipper’ system which reduces the destabilizing effect of the rear-end under aggressive down-shifting, and compared with other wet clutch used so far by Ducati, features an additional cush-drive damper mechanism which smoothes the repeated transition from drive to over-run during stop-start traffic.

Take a look at Ducati’s video showing how easy owners can change the color of their Monster 696 s with only a screwdriver and different body panels and front fender. These lasts are all part of a special kit that Ducati offers for the middleweight Monster only and there are 13 different colors available. Color therapy indeed.
