General Information on the 2011 Ducati Monster 796

The 796 is slightly different ergonomically than the 696 and its big brother the 1100. The seat height is a bit higher than the lesser-, and slightly lower than the larger-, capacity Monster. The wide handlebar gives a very good control of that stumpy front end, directional changes are easy, and the feel is feather-light.
