WELCOME TO THE MONSTER FAMILY.
The 620 is the perfect introduction to the Monster family: its classic, minimalist style expresses the philosophy that has won over a generation of riders. The Monster 620 can satisfy the needs of a wide range of motorcyclists, thanks to features that make it easy to ride and own, like a low seat height, a comfortable riding position and low maintenance costs.
The Monster is the original, unique “naked” motorcycle. Launched to rave reviews in the 1990s, it has become a cult classic. Today, more than ever, it is a modern motorcycling legend, the bike of choice of top designers, Hollywood stars and Formula One racing drivers.
The Monster is a “street fighter” that offers outstanding sport bike performance together with a style that has often been imitated but never equalled. In addition, the Ducati Accessories catalogue, which is included with each bike, is bursting with ideas to customise your bike and improve its performance. You can get gorgeous, airbrushed fuel tanks, accessories machined from solid aluminium, carbon fibre, high performance exhaust systems and hundreds of special parts to make each and every Monster even more unique.
The Monster family offers a choice of air or liquid-cooled, two and four-valve Desmo engines. The Superbike derived trellis frame, powerful engines with fuel injection, plus braking and suspension systems that are all derived from our experience in the racing world.
For 2006 the Monster family includes the classic 620 and 620Dark, joined by the more aggressive, high performance SR models: S2R, S2RDark, S4R and the new S2R 1000 and S4Rs Testastretta.
All Monster models are fitted with an anti-theft immobilizer as standard equipment, so the engine can only be started with your special ignition key featuring an integrated microchip.

The air-cooled, two-valve 618cc engine, with an advanced fuel injection system derived from our race bikes is extremely reliable and its smooth power delivery makes for easy spirited riding from city streets to mountain passes.
A Dark version of the Monster 620 is also available, in characteristic matt black, the strikingly clean and essential lines of the Monster 620 are accentuated. The Monster 620Dark is also the value choice of the family.
And good news for European riders under 21 and those who have had a motorcycle license for less than two years. A 25 Kw power limited version, that complies with the European Commission standards, allows new riders the chance to experience Monster style and performance.
The APTC clutch, developed exclusively for Ducati, makes the 620 even friendlier, safer and more comfortable. This unique system provides clutch lever pull that is amazingly light, while it also assists in reducing abrupt downshifts that can produce destabilising rear wheel chatter. The clutch, as well as the lowered seat, make this an ideal bike for women too. The six-speed transmission ensures spirited acceleration and an immediate response at all times.
The instrument panel features digital/analog gauges providing information on speed and RPM; digital displays show the time, total and trip mileage, oil temperature, next scheduled service and a reserve fuel warning light; there is also an indicator showing the status of the anti-theft immobilizer that acts as a warning when your Monster is left unattended.
The Ducati range of accessories and clothing developed for the Monster family includes a wide choice of products, satisfying riders that constantly seek better performance and riders that aim to combine practicality and bike style.

Since the Ducati Monster is so easy to handle, it is used as the official Ducati Riding Experience motorcycle for basic level courses, teaching beginners to ride correctly and safely.
