The Ducati Monster 795 was specially developed for the adrenaline-hungry riders. Its style screams power and demands instant respect, while the massive tires are ready to bite the asphalt with pose.
The motorcycle is built around an 803cc, L-Twin, air cooled engine with 2 Desmodromically actuated valves per cylinder. The unit generates a maximum power o 64kW (87 CV) at 8250 rpm and 78 Nm (8 Kgm) of torque at 6250 Rpm. The engine is fueled by a 15 liters fuel tank (13.5 liters on the ABS version) and is mated to a 6-speed transmission with APTC wet multiplate clutch.
The motorcycle’s backbone is represented by a light tubular steel Trellis frame with aluminium rear sub-frame which sits on front 43mm upside-down forks and a rear progressive linkage suspension with preload and rebound adjustable monoshock.
Other features worthy of being mentioned include a triple-parabola headlight, LED taillights and front and rear disc brakes.

2014 Ducati Monster 795 Features and Benefits:
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.
An immensely strong but light tubular steel Trellis frame with aluminium rear sub-frame is the visual and structural backbone of the Monster. Delivering unparalleled rigidity with minimal mass, the chassis design is pure Ducati in its ingenuity and simplicity. A separate, all aluminium sub-frame saves weight and adds a pleasing continuity with the aluminium footrest hangers and matte finished swingarm.
The triple-parabola headlight on the Monster utilises the latest optical technology and advanced construction techniques to provide an incredibly compact lighting package. In spite of its compact size, the headlight throws a broad and deep beam to provide excellent visibility and make night riding safer. Viewed from the side, its discrete silhouette mimics the radical shape of the fuel tank.
An LED rear light unit satisfies the minimalist, weight-saving design ethos found throughout the Monster 696. The specially designed strip of LED are enhanced by a special diffuser lens to deliver outstanding light clarity and incredible longevity.
For the Monster 1100EVO, even the license plate light uses LED technology.
The instrument 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 bike has been built ‘system-ready’ for the data acquisition kit, which consists of special DDA software and a memory key that slots into a plug under the seat. The same plug also doubles as the connection for a handy new battery charger available as an accessory from Ducati Performance.
