General Information on the 2011-2012 Ducati Monster 796 ABS
Enter the midsized Monster 796. In reality, its engine displaces 803cc (88 x 66mm bore and stroke), as it is essentially the same engine as found in the Hypermotard 796. It retains the ‘Motard’s 11.1:1 compression ratio, the 45mm throttle bodies and the Siemens fuel-injection system.
Mated to a highly elaborate exhaust system and much larger Monster-sized airbox, the updated mill is rated at 87 hp at 8250 rpm and 58 ft.-lb. of torque at 6250 rpm. Power is transferred to the rear wheel through an oil-bath slipper clutch and six-speed gearbox. Compared to the Hypermotard, the 796 Monster has two fewer teeth on the rear sprocket (39 vs. 41) to turn that extra power into the highest theoretical top speed while also improving fuel consumption while cruising.
