Ducati Monster 797 – Features and Review
The Ducati Monster 797 is contemporary, fun and simple. It might lack contemporary electrical assists, but the manufacturer’s focus was clearly on creating a smaller and more accessible bike for entry-level riders. And they succeeded.
The 797 has a new steel-made fuel tank with a rounded headlight like the Monster 1200. It has a similar 31.7-inch seat height as the 821 but a broader handlebar, and the lower footpegs offer a more relaxed riding position. The bike weighs 425 lbs but the tighter 56.5-inch wheelbase also contributes to a nimbler ride. Its 803cc engine features 66mm stroke and 88mm bore.
Other features include a mounted LCD dash, which displays all the relevant information and a USB port beneath the seat to access Ducati’s Multimedia System. Consequently, you can access things like your phone and navigation maps through the system via the earphones or dash.
Even though it is mainly aimed at entry-level riders, experienced riders will appreciate its distinct styling and sporty performance.
Riding Review of the 797
The bike offers a smooth power delivery with 80% of the torque coming at 3,500 rpm. It powers out of corners well, with a linear and usable delivery. While the bars feel broad initially, you’ll appreciate the extra leverage. All controls are within comfortable reach and the seating position is roomy, allowing you to move around.
The 797 comes in three colors: Ducati Red with black wheels and a red frame, White Silk with red wheels and red frame and Dark Stealth with black wheels and frame.
If you’ve never owned a Ducati or you’re a first-time motorcyclist, you won’t regret getting the Monster 797.
