In 1996, the Italian motorcycle maker launched the Ducati Monster 750, a standard or naked machine made to fill the gap between the M600 and M900 versions. The bike packed the 750SS engine, an 888-derived, and SS suspension.

The bike was first released in 1996 with a single brake disc on the front and carburetors. Over its production time, the specifications were upgraded to a dual-disc braking system on the front and a fuel injection system.

The 1996 Ducati Monster 750 borrowed the styling and handling from its smaller 600cc brother, while the larger engine offered a more satisfying power delivery like the M900 but with lower weight and cost.

In the appearance department, the M750 was similar to its siblings, packing a large, round headlight, a massive-looking fuel tank, a single seat, a tubular steel frame, a dual exhaust system, and three-spoke cast aluminum wheels.

In the suspension department, the bike had a 40 mm inverted Marzocchi telescopic fork on the front and a fully adjustable Sachs Boge shock absorber on the rear, offering excellent suspension performance and handling.

The braking power was achieved by a 320 mm disc with a four-piston caliper on the front wheel and a 245 mm disc with a dual-piston caliper on the rear wheel.

As for the power figures, the 1996 Ducati Monster 750 had its heartbeat set by a 748cc four-stroke air-cooled V-twin engine, boasting 62 hp with a peak at 7,500 rpm and 61 Nm (45 lb-ft) torque at 6,850 rpm.
