803cm³ Desmodue The Monster 797 is powered by the air-cooled 803cm³ Desmodue twin. Though inspired by the Monster’s roots, it is a modern, Euro 4 homologated engine, able to unleash 75 hp of maximum power at 8250 rpm. Characterised by 88mm bore and 66mm stroke, it has been designed to offer sheer enjoyment without ever proving difficult to ride. The 2 in 1 exhaust has been designed to guarantee optimum fluid dynamics and excellent heat protection for the rider and passenger. The engine of the Monster 797 is also competitive in terms of its maintenance intervals, with services required every 12,000 kilometres.

Exhaust system

The twin-cylinder engine of the Monster 797 has a single 50 mm diameter throttle body with two injectors downstream of the throttle, ensuring fluid distribution and precise control of the mixture strength taken in by each cylinder. The 2 in 1 exhaust has been designed to ensure optimal fluid-dynamics and excellent thermal protection for both the rider and the passenger.

Gearbox and clutch

The gearbox is 6-speed while the APTC wet multiplate clutch with cable control ensures a much lighter lever actuation and provides additional advantages of excellent modulability: incredibly useful when managing continuous starting and stopping in city traffic. Furthermore, the clutch is equipped with power torque limiting rear wheel hopping during downshifting.

Trellis frame

The Monster 797 has the traditional Ducati trellis frame in steel tubes. Essential, rigid yet at the same time light, it leaves the Ducati twin-cylinder on full display and, together with the steel tank, it is one of the characterising elements of the Monster. The frame combines perfectly with the double-sided swingarm fused in aluminium and thanks to the compact wheelbase of 1,435 mm ensures agility in traffic and stability at high speeds.


The 10-spoke wheels of the Monster 797 are in light alloy.
The Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres are in made from double-compound technology to combine resistance during long trips with constant grip also during extreme leaning. These high-quality tyres apply Pirelli EPT technology (Enhanced Patch Technology) to maximise the contact area with any leaning angle and FGD (Functional Groove Design) to optimize performance in wet conditions. The dimensions of the tyre at the front are 120/70 ZR17, and 180/55 ZR17 at the rear.


The Monster 797 has a 43 mm diameter Kayaba fork with a 125 mm wheel travel at the front. The rear suspension has an adjustable Sachs shock, with spring preload and on extension on the left side of the bike connected without progressive leverage to the frame and fork. The rear shock system has a maximum wheel travel of 150 mm.

Braking system

The Monster 797 is equipped with a Brembo braking system, fitted as standard with Bosch 9.1 MP ABS system with internal pressure sensor. To ensure optimum performance while braking as well as maximum safety, the Monster 797 is equipped with Brembo radially mounted Monobloc M4-32 4-piston callipers which act on two 320 mm diameter discs with axial brake pump and integrated oil tank. At the rear there is a single 245 mm disc on which, just like at the front, a single Brembo calliper acts equipped with pads with sintered friction material to increase efficiency. This component ensures the most highly performing brake system in the sector, a trait which has always been characteristic of all Ducati bikes.

LCD instrument panel

The Monster 797 dashboard consists of a large LCD high-visibility screen with the main and secondary indications. The unit provides information on speed, rpm, totaliser, trip1 and trip2, engine oil temperature and clock. It also possible to display average journey time and speed.

Headlights and indicators

The modern highly developed and technological headlight of the Monster 797 is integrated with the LED position lights. There is also an LED light at the rear. The Monster 797 includes the hazard warning lights function, which can be activated by pressing the designated button.
