Called Il Mostro in the native language, the Ducati Monster is a naked motorcycle that started its life in Bologna, Italy, in 1993. 12 years later the little Monster was responsible for over 50 percent of Ducati’s worldwide sales, becoming “the biggest selling family of motorcycles in Ducati's history”. It was also a favorite platform for custom motorcycle builders around the world.

In 2017 the new Ducati Monster 797 opened its eyes in front of the spotlights as the most accessible motorcycle in its range. With the Monster 797, Ducati went back to the air-cooled engine, an 803cc, L-Twin cylinder unit tied to a six-speed transmission rotating the chain with a power of 73 hp at 8,250 rpm and a torque of 67 Nm (49 lb-ft) at 5,750 rpm.

The hot gases trying to escape from the engine are directed through a 2-in-1 system with a catalytic converter and two lambda sensors, and get settled down by a single stainless-steel muffler with an aluminum cover.

For a comfy ride, the Monster comes with suspension composed of a Kayaba USD fork at the front and a Sachs mono-shock with pre-load and rebound adjustability at the back.

In terms of breaking power, the Monster 797 uses two Brembo 320 mm semi-floated discs at the front, and 245 mm discs at the back, and for good grip, the Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tires jump in, as does the ABS system.

In 2021, the Ducati Monster, 797 included, counted 350,000 units spread around the world.
