Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > Monster 797
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
There's a budget roadster in the Ducati lineup again, with the introduction of the Monster 797. It features the old classic two-valves, air-cooled 803 cc L-twin, so not the latest in technology, but still a desirable bike for someone looking to buy their first Ducati. Flashier paint costs $100 extra, and you can get the Plus edition (with passenger seat and windscreen) for another $600.
