Ducati Monster 797 Design Review

The new 797 is the smallest bike in the Monster series. It made its public debut at this year’s EICMA Motor Show. The new Monster 797 finds itself slotted below the Monster 821. However, it looks much like the 821, whilst boasting a much simpler motor. In a typical Ducati fashion, the 797 flaunts a red Trellis frame. Other highlights include a muscular fuel tank and the trademark Monster headlamp. Instead of the 821’s double end-can, the 797 Monster gets a single end can. It also gets digital instrumentation, LED indicators and LED tail light.
