Agressive 2009 Ducati Monster 696
The Ducati Monster 696 is a standard or "naked" motorcycle, made by Ducati from 2008 through 2014.
Since its launch in 1993, Ducati had sold over 200,000 Monsters, which at one time amounted to 60% of Ducati's production. The initial Monster was cheap and easy to build and has remained so during its long life. Ducati's "less-is-more" rationale of the Monster range aimed to combine high performance in a compact motorcycle. Ducati recently updated the Monster range, with redesigned components to improve performance and appearance.
The 2009 Ducati Monster 696 we have at Skyway Classics is one of those. It is powered by an engine called "Desmodue", a 90° L-twin, 696 cc (42.5 cu in) 78.9 hp air-cooled engine with desmodromic valve actuation. A slipper clutch prevents locking of the rear wheel through clumsy down-shifting. Although Ducatis often use a dry clutch, this model has a 21-plate oil-bath "wet clutch" which weighs less, gives quieter operation, and needs less maintenance.
The Monster has a steel trellis frame and a lightweight aluminum subframe. The claimed dry weight is 355 lb. The seat height is 30 in, which may make it easier for some riders to plant their feet firmly on the ground.
The Monster's brake system components including master cylinders and discs are supplied by Brembo. The front has 320 mm floating dual discs and radially mounted 4 piston Brembo p4.32 calipers. The 245 mm rear solid disc have a two-piston p34 caliper.
For its size and its price, this Ducati Monster 696 delivers pure, hair-raising performance with competence. Come try it out at Skyway Classics and be amazed at the Ducati package.
