Let's face facts here, Ducati's Monster bikes are some impressive performance machines, but for the most of us it's the looks that'll have us driving one off the lot in record time. Now Ducati is making the Monster much more accessible with the new 797 that is powered by a 803cc L-twin engine that produces 75 hp and of course, it comes housed in that dramatic Ducati styling you know and love. 

That engine is matched with a six-speed gearbox and APTC multidisc wet clutch and it all sits alongside that signature steel trellis frame with a cast aluminium double-sided swingarm. Suspension comes via a 43 mm Kayaba fork and a Sachs shock in the rear and the wheel and tire set feature Pirelli Diablo Rosso IIs with ten spoke wheels and Brembo brakes in the front and rear.
