Ducati's Monster 795

I think mos to of us guys have always wanted to have those cool big bikes.  The sleek style, the jagged designs, and the roaring sound of their mufflers.  That's an ideal big bike!

I remember during my teenage days I get to know those motorbike brands and models through the game called Super Tramp which showcase the different types of airplanes, cars, battle tanks, missiles and motorbikes.  That's where I first read about the term "cc".  Not really sure about it but all I know is that the higher the number the greater the speed.  I don't if that game is still played today.

There are different brands of big bikes but there is one brand that is considered luxurious and well known, that is the Ducati.

Ducati is founded in 1962, Ducati has been producing sport-inspired motorcycles since 1946.  Their motorcycles are characterized by "Desmodromic" performance engines, innovative design and avant-garde technology.  Covering several market segments, Ducati's range of motorcycles are divided into model families which include: Diavel, Hypermotard, Monster, Multistrada, Streetfighter and Superbike.  These authentic icons of "made in Italy" are sold over 80 countries around the world, with concentration on the European, North-American and Asia Pacific markets.  

Knowing Ducati as silent moving giant, they are introducing one of their model that would target the yuppies market.  They wanted more younger generation to own a Ducati.  Introducing the Monster 795!  This is an 800 cc bike, good speed that is rightfully good to run in an expressway.  The Monster 795 is an addition to the line-up that combines the user friendliness of the 696 with the sport character of the 796.  Delivering 87hp (64 kW), with a dry weight of just 167 kg (368 lb), the stylish new Monster 795 adds the magic of mid-range to the Monster family for our enthusiasts in Asia.

 With the Desomodue 796 engine at the heart the machine, a double sided swingarm and revised ergonomics, the Monster 795 perfectly balances lifestyle performance with everyday functionality to enhance the original Monster spirit.

Dressed in Ducati red, with a bright red Trellis frame, the Monster 795 can be further personalized with an additional 10 colour scheme from the innovative Monster Art program, which features the latest collection "Logomania".

So what are the features of the Monster 795?  Here it is...

Ducati has continued to listen to its passionate Monster owners, using their valuable feedbacks for the designs of the new Monster 795.  The riding position has been revised by reducing the 796's height from a full 800mm (31.5inc) to 770mm (30.3in).  The combination of redesigning the seat shape and raising the handlebars by 20mm (0.8in) has improved posture and increased comfort.  With a dry weight of just 167kg (368lb), thanks to the lightweight engine, the new naked inspires confidence, making life simpler in the crowded cities all over Asia.

In pure Monster style, the entire chassis set-up is unified into a sturdy, great handling package by a bright red Trellis frame.  Lightweight, with incredible torsional stiffness, the large diamater tube construction flows into the cast aluminium rear sub-frame matches the matte black rear swingarm.

Twin 320mm semi-floating discs are gripped by radially mounted 4-piston Brembo callipers to provide powerful and progressive front-end braking with rider-friendly "feeling", while the rear is equipped with a 245mm disc and 2-piston calliper, also by Brembo.

The 17" wheels are in the 3 spoke style and produced in lightweight aluminium to keep the unsprung weight  low and handling, braking and acceleration performances high.  They roll on the 120/60 and 160/60 Pirelli Angel ST tyres.
