Key Specs of Monster 797
Ducati Monster 797 Highlights
The Ducati Monster celebrated 25 years of existence in 2018, making it one of the oldest continuously running production series from the Bologna-based manufacturer. Up until the sale of BS4 bikes were permitted, Ducati only had the Monster 797 and Monster 821 in India, with the larger Monster 1200 dropped in the process. The Monster 797 BS6 version is expected to be under development currently and could arrive on our shores either by late-2020 or early-2021.
Ducati Monster 797 Price:
The Ducati Monster 797 is available in just one trim and two colour options, each with different pricing. The BS4 Ducati Monster 797’s prices start from Rs 8.60 lakh for the Ducati Red colour while you would have to splurge an extra Rs 10,000 for the Star White Silk shade (all prices, ex-showroom Delhi). Expect a small price increment once the BS6 bike is launched.
Ducati Monster 797 Features:
The Ducati Monster 797 continues the same round, muscular design language of the Monster series that debuted almost two and a half decades ago. Aside from the LED position lamps and tail lamp, every other lighting system is bulb-lit. The dash is fully-digital but it is a simple LCD unit and not a colour TFT screen like the Monster 821.
Ducati Monster 797 Engine:
The Ducati Monster 797 shares its 803cc L-twin air-cooled engine with the middleweight Ducati Scrambler motorcycles. In its current Euro 4/BS4 spec, the engine puts out 73PS and 67Nm, running the same tune as the Scrambler. The six-speed gearbox of the Monster 797 doesn’t get the hydraulic slip-and-assist clutch system like the larger Monster 821 or the Scrambler. This Monster is also devoid of electronic riding aids barring dual-channel ABS, no cornering ABS here.
Ducati Monster 797 Suspension & Brakes:
A tubular steel trellis frame is one of the most iconic elements of the Monster range of motorcycles. The frame of the Monster 797 is suspended by a 43mm Kayaba USD fork and a Sachs monoshock with preload and rebound adjustability. Braking hardware remains the same as the Monster 821 with 320mm rotors at the front, fitted with Brembo M4.32 monobloc calipers and the rear 245mm disc getting a single-piston sliding caliper. The Monster 797 gets grippier Pirelli Diablo Rosso 2 tyres, which are a notch above the Rosso 3s offered on the Monster 821.
Ducati Monster 797 Rivals:
The Ducati Monster 797 is the most affordable Monster available in India. There are no direct competitors of the Monster 797 but one can compare it to the likes of the Kawasaki Z650, which has similar levels of performance on tap. Price alternatives of the Ducati Monster 797 are the Triumph Street Twin, Kawasaki Z900 and the Suzuki GSX-S750
