Ducati Monster 797 Overview
Ducati Monster 797 is the entry into the world of this legendary Italian marquee, some also call it the 'baby Monster' due to that reason. The fuel tank and headlamp design cues are similar to those of its bigger brother Monster 1200. 797 is a Ducati for regular use with its manageable power figures and gorgeous design. Its compact dimensions makes it user friendly for most riders including who are a bit shorter in height.
Ducati Monster 797 Engine & Transmission
It may be entry level in Ducati but its engine pulls out 73bhp of rampant Italian horses backed by 67Nm torques. The 803cc L-Twin engine sounds quintessentially Ducati with a brassy rumble. It is not as loud as its 821 brother, but will still make your heart sing. The 6-speed transmission with slipper clutch allows precise shifts. And since it is light in weight, its fun quotient is excellent for a starter or pro.
Ducati Monster 797 Mileage
Monster 797 should be able to go about 310km with its 16.5 L fuel tank completely filled, as claimed by Ducati with its 18.86kmpl fuel consumption number. It has a full digital speedometer, service reminder, digital tachometer, and a practical USB charging port etc.
Ducati Monster 797 Performance and Handling
Sticking to basics Ducati engineers focused on ride ability of the 797. The entire 193 kg kerb weight is evenly distributed and low ride height makes reaching the ground easier. Most of the torque is available at lower revs with quick and linear power delivery throughout. 320mm front discs come with Brembo brake setup and ABS by Bosch, whereas at the rear, there is a 245 mm single brake by Brembo with ABS. Ducati brings in this Monster in a completely knocked-down route making it much affordable. The 797 might not be as high on its performance as the Kawasaki Z900 or the Triumph Street Triple 765, but it makes up with its swift handling and excellent brake setup.
