2017 Ducati

Monster 797

The new Monster 797 finally brings the iconic Monster spirit and Ducati values within everyone’s reach. Sporty, compact, essential but also sophisticated and contemporary, the Monster 797 provides a gateway to the Ducati world, for those looking for an easy, intuitive ride as well as sheer sports enjoyment.


The Monster 797 is the ideal bike for those seeking carefree enjoyment, whether in the city or out of town. The design recalls the iconic bike of the 90s, reinterpreted with a modern twist: the trellis frame, a traditional Ducati trait, perfectly marries with the muscular tank and rear double-sided swingarm in cast aluminium, lightweight and sporty, with side-mounted shock. The seat, positioned just 805mm from the ground, the wide handlebar and wide steering angle ensure agility in traffic and stability at high speed, while the contained weight and chassis offer the rider great feeling, whatever the experience level.
