Ducati reveals rider friendly Monster 796

Ducati has launched a new Monster 796 with the 803cc engine from the Hypermotard 796 and other improvements based on owner feedback. Broadly, the new bike is similar to the 696 and 1100 version of the Monster, both of which will continue, but the air-cooled two-valve 803cc engine is an all-new unit that debuted at the tail end of 2009 in...

Speed Triple or Ducati?

Looks like Ducati looked long and hard at Triumph's Speed Triple rear end before copying it! The tank, seat, and tail pod are not too disimilar either, single sided swing arm as well !! I like it, but not as a copy of something that was designed over five years ago.

Interesting point, 1000TT...

But you are wrong, I'm afraid! Ducati has been selling Monsters with a similar bodywork since 1993, Ducati first put a single sided swingarm on a Monster in 2003 (the S4R), and they have sold high-level pipes for quite a few years too. So you could argue Triumph copied Ducati, on that basis! Thanks for posting, in any case! Chris Newbigging, Senior Reporter.

I like it but I'd rather see a streetfighter 848 with the exhaust/foot interference issue fixed

May have to

seriously consider adding it to my list (pending that lottery win). Trouble is, can't decide which colour; they all look good. Still, if its a 'roll-over' perhaps one of each...

I agree with wobblyhead about the streetfighter 848. However, I don't understand the comparisons with the Triumph Speed. The competitor for this bike is the Street, which although more similar is by far superior. The Speed is a different bike - bigger, much more powerful but less agile.

I hope it is a wake up call for Triumph A) to increase the power of the Street R and B) to update the aging Speed (15 years is an awfully long time in biking).

ABS?

As the other 2 models are now available with ABS are they saying this one is too. I see from the pic that it has ABS on the dash so assuming that it has... Where does it fit in 87bhp and 58lb-ft compared to the other models of what?

Street Triple/Speed Triple

Chris Newbigging, Yeah Right, I believe you... Still looks striking and just like the rear of the Street Triple and Speed Triple, it can't be denied, oval cans, the lot, but thanks for your posting in any case.
