Ducati Monster 796

The boys from Bologna are at it again, having just released information on the 2011 Monster 796 ($9995). The middle Monster will be available this June in white, black or Ducati red; all three colors are mated with a red trellis frame and red-striped wheels. Mechanical highlights include an 803cc engine with a slipper clutch, a single-sided swingarm and four-piston Brembo brakes. Released in conjunction with the 796 are 10 different Monster Art body kits, many of which mimic historic past Ducati models. Each kit ($600) includes a gas-tank cover, fender, bikini fairing and seat cover.
