2013 Ducati Monster 796 Features and Benefits:

Concept:

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.

Monster Story
In 1992 Ducati unveiled a new prototype that was to become an icon. Ducati’s creation awed the crowds and the world’s media of that year’s Cologne International Motorcycle show. The 900 Monster was a motorcycle that created a truly new niche – dramatically styled, minimalist in stature yet bristling with innovative engineering solutions. The Monster’s radical styling has also provided the inspiration for an entire after-market sector specializing in hot-rod parts for this legendary machine. For this reason, rarely do you see two Monsters the same. This radical and refreshing design departure also influenced other manufacturers but, as the old adage states: imitation is the highest form of flattery… The Monster is characterized by a long and successful history, by its introduction during the years of numerous cylinders and uncountable color options, but above all by a constant technological evolution that this year brings us to the birth of the last version: the Monster 1100EVO, “The Ultimate Monster”.

Urban Icon
The Monster family introduces the 796, an exciting addition to the line-up that combines the user-friendliness of the 696 with the sports character of the 1100. Delivering 87hp (64kW), a dry weight of just 167kg (368lb) and optional ABS, the stylish new Monster 796 returns the magic of mid-range to the Monster family.

With the Desmo 796 engine at the heart of the machine, a single-sided swingarm and revised ergonomics, the Monster 796 perfectly balances lifestyle performance with everyday functionality to enhance the original Monster spirit.

The Monster 796 opens a new road to the world of Ducati Monster and becomes the ‘urban icon’ of hand-built Italian naked motorcycles.

Monster Tales
A memory, an emotion, an image, a sound. One common element: Ducati Monster.
Whether you’re a motorcyclist, a would-be motorcyclist or a passenger, whether Monster has been your travelling companion on a thousand adventures or whether it’s a dream that’s still to come true, whether it’s parked in your garage or is just an image firmly stamped in your mind….whatever your story, tell us the tale and celebrate the 20th anniversary of Monster together with us!

Engine:

796 Desmo
The 796 engine is a completely brand new, lightweight Desmo power unit designed to provide the torquey, smooth and enjoyable character famous of all Desmodromic L-Twins.

APTC clutch
The APTC ‘wet’ clutch gives a ‘slipper’ type action that prevents destabilizing of the rear-end under aggressive down-shifting and also gives the extra benefit of a super-light feel at the lever, a great benefit in stop-start city traffic or during longer journeys. The 21-plate oil-bath clutch (11 friction and 10 steel) represents a power-enhancing weight reduction over the ‘dry’ system as well as having a quieter operation and requiring less maintenance.

Lightweight crankcases
The new crankcases hug the gearbox internals much closer to create a smaller and more compact outer profile and achieve considerable weight savings over previous cases.

Power & torque curves
The Monster 796 produces 84hp (64kW)@ 8250rpm of power and a torque to 58lb-ft (78Nm) @ 6250rpm.

Crankshaft
The crankshaft assembly uses a lightweight 848-type flywheel and has a 66mm stroke instead of the 696’s 57.2mm.

Exhaust system
Providing a deep and rich exhaust tone within current noise and emissions regulations is no mean feat, but the Monster definitely provides the L-Twin sound famous of Ducati. Its bold, high-level twin mufflers also make a striking style statement.

The exhaust system on Monster 796 has one Lambda probe dedicated to each cylinder, enabling precise fuelling for a smoother power delivery as well as complying with current emission regulations.

Chassis:

Monster Trellis
An immensely strong but light tubular steel Trellis frame with aluminum 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 aluminum sub-frame saves weight and adds a pleasing continuity with the aluminum footrest hangers and matte finished swingarm.

Lightweight construction
Every carefully selected component of the Monster 696 has a net benefit to the overall light weight of the machine. The dry weight of 161kgs (355lb) has dramatic effects on not just maneuverability and ease of use, but also by contributing directly to increased performance, braking and acceleration.

Lightweight 5-spoke wheels
The extremely lightweight aluminum alloy Y-shaped, 5-spoke wheels reduce unsprung weight and improve agility. The 3.50×17 front wheel is fitted with a 120/70ZR tire while the rear 5.50×17 wheel has a 180/55ZR. The result is lightweight, precise steering that is extremely responsive at all speeds while giving the vehicle exceptional stability.

Single-sided swingarm
The beautifully shaped single-sided swingarm gives the Monster a ‘tough’ look while ensuring higher rigidity, reduced weight and enhanced road holding.

The swingarm is chill-cast using aluminum in its most noble form. Gravity cast and heat treated, the component achieves the best mechanical characteristics as well as reduced final weight for improved handling.

Equipment:

Headlight
The triple-parabola headlight on the Monster utilizes 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.

LED taillight
A LED rear light unit satisfies the minimalist, weight-saving design ethos found throughout the Monster 796. The specially designed strip of LEDs are enhanced by a special diffuser lens to deliver outstanding light clarity and incredible longevity.

Monster Style
Refined and sophisticated, the Monster 796 is proud to show its unmistakable style as the ‘Italian ambassador’ in the world of motorcycling.

The large diameter tube construction flows into the cast aluminium rear sub-frame which matches the matte black rear swingarm and footrest hangers.

The 17″ wheels in the five ‘Y-shape’ mount a stylish pin-stripe for 60° of the circumference of the rim which creates a full circle of red when in motion.

The bright white illuminated display, the stylish red stitching of the new seat, the italian flag and the new Ducati logo on the front mudguard complete the clean and minimalist style of this new urban icon.

Empowering Controls
The Monster 796 has enhanced comfort and control with 20mm higher bar-risers gripping sturdy tapered section aluminium handlebars.

Integral type Brembo master cylinders are used for both the clutch and brake systems and maintain a clean handlebar arrangement for the rider. They are fitted with user-friendly 4-point adjustable levers that provide easy-to-reach control for all hand sizes and the APTC clutch offers a super-light lever action ideal for use in the city.

Stopwatch
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. After your journey or track session, the times or lap times can be recalled from the memory and scrolled through by using the instrumentation buttons on the left-hand switchgear.

M796 ABS
The Ducati Monster 796 is available with ABS (anti-lock braking system).
Unlike the majority of motorcycle ABS set-ups, this system has the advantage of ensuring a more natural braking ‘feel’ for the rider.

The Monster 796 ABS is equipped with ABS, the single seat cover and the neat micro-bikini fairing.

939 SuperSport

2017 Ducati Supersport and Supersport S

MSRP: base SuperSport $12,995, and the “S” at $14,795 red: $14,995 white.

The Ducati 939 SuperSport blends comfort with versatility thanks to solutions that make it perfect for everyday road riding – but without ever compromising its sporting spirit. Whichever road you take, the three Riding Modes, ABS brakes, and 8 level traction control, ensure optimized SuperSport control.

It has been four years in the making, but Ducati is finally releasing the revamped Supersport family for the 2017 model year. This range brings sportbikes handling and performance to the table with its race-inspired “Monster” frame and over 100 ponies on tap, but in a package meant to be less intimidating to prospective Ducatisti than some of their, shall we say, spicier models.

The factory touts this new line as “versatile and accessible,” and while the base SuperSport is meant to appeal to riders who want a sportbike that’s a little light on the “sportier aspects,” the “S” model takes on some of the trappings of a proper racebike for a decidedly more sport-tastic nature. Let’s check out what the bike builders in Bologna have in store for us with this newest effort.

SuperSport S

In terms of equipment, the S takes things to another level: even more sport, even more design and more technology to accentuate the sportiest side of the SuperSport. As standard:

  • Ducati Quick Shift up/down
  • Passenger seat cover
  • 48 mm Öhlins fork with TiN coated inner tubes, fully adjustable
  • Öhlins rear shock with integrated gas tank,  fully adjustable

Design

Ducati may have designed this ride to bridge the gap between the laid-back riders and the more spirited ones, but the look is all sport and distinctly Ducati. Head-on, the family sports the “angry alien” headlight arrangement set within the brow of the front fairing that continues down to a fairly typical engine cowl and radiator surround.

The vented fairing peters out midway to the rear offering a tantalizing view of the rear cylinder and just a glimpse of the frame, and the rear end tapers off to nothing with the taillight housing tucked away neatly beneath. Short standoffs mount the rear turn signals, a detail that could certainly be improved upon, but the front turn signals come stashed in the mirror housings and so are about as clean as it gets.

Foot-to-butt orientation places the leg in the sport-typical jockey position, but the handlebars allow for an upright body position which plays a large role in the “relaxed sport” attitude. Both rides come with passenger seating and footrests, but the “S” gets a “P”-pad cover that plays right into its race-tastic panache. Seat height is typical of the genre at 31.9-inches tall.

Chassis

 (SuperSport)

Weight was a front-burner topic during development and the factory used its tubular Trellis frame as the foundation. The stressed-engine arrangement substitutes the engine for a large portion of the frame, even going so far as to mount the rear shock and subframe on the mill.

Swingarm design is of the single-sided persuasion, and the die-cast aluminum construction does it’s part to keep weight down while leaving an unrestricted view of the rear wheel from the right side. Rake and trail are set up for nimble handling at 24-degrees and 3.6 inches with a 58.2-inch wheelbase.

The siblings differ a bit when we get to the factory’s choices in suspension components. On the base model, a Sachs monoshock works on a progressive link while the front end runs 43 mm Marzocchi usd forks, and both ends come with adjustable preload and rebound damping. The “S” model gets a bit of a suspension upgrade with fully adjustable, usd, 48 mm Ohlins forks and monoshock from same.

Brembo M4-32 Monobloc four-pot opposed-piston calipers bind the pair of 320 mm front discs, and a twin-pot caliper binds the 245 mm rear disc with the Bosch 9MP ABS included with the standard equipment package. Additionally, the ABS comes with three separate maps for varying levels of slip before the system intervenes. Light alloy wheels with triple, Y-shaped spokes mount Pirelli’s Diablo Rosso III tires with a nimble 120/70 up front and 180/55 in back.

Drivetrain

 (SuperSport)

Now for the beating heart: the 937 cc Testastretta 11-Degree L-Twin engine. This liquid-cooled mill runs in what most Americans would call a 90-degree “V”, and it sports Ducati’s signature Desmodromic valvetrain that actuates the four-valve heads with push-open and pull-closed cams that preclude the need for valve springs and eliminate valve float at high rpms. The 11-degrees refers to amount of crankshaft rotation that occurs during valve overlap, a feature that keeps emissions low and helps it meet Euro-4 requirements.

Decidedly oversquare, the engine runs a 94 mm bore and 67.5 mm stroke. A pair of 53mm throttle bodies meters the induction via ride-by-wire control that provides the rider with the option of using three separate engine mappings for varied conditions and riding styles. Set to the hottest profile, the mill delivers its full horsepower with a sporty throttle response. In the middle setting, full horsepower is still on tap, but with a progressive delivery that keeps things somewhat relaxed. At the bottom of the scale, power is limited to 75 ponies with a progressive power curve for urban environs and conditions with less-than-stellar traction.

The mill cranks out a maximum of 113 ponies at 9 grand, and 71.3 pounds of grunt at 6,500 rpm, plenty for its 463-pound curb weight, but the smokin’ hot, 12.6-to-1 compression ratio will put you at the premium pump every time. A six-speed transmission crunches the ratios with a slipper-clutch that limits back-torque to prevent wheel hop on aggressive downshifts and also has the happy side-effect of providing a softer pull at the lever.

Much like with the suspension components, the “S” model gets a little something extra in the gearbox with an up/down Quick Shift feature as part of the standard equipment package, but the base model SuperSport has it as an available option. Traditionally, Desmodromic engines are considered high-maintenance items because of the need for frequent valve-lash adjustment, but Duc set a 30,000 mile service interval on the valve-lash adjustment, so routine maintenance no longer eats your lunch.

Price

 (SuperSport S)

MSRP is reasonable with the base SuperSport fetching $12,995, and the “S” model falls just below the $15K mark at $14,795 red: $14,995 white.
