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.
