Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of Ducati Monster 796:
- The fuel efficiency (shown as fuel consumption above) shows how efficient is a certain motorcycle in converting the chemical energy of the fuel into kinetic energy. It is usually measured by how many liters are needed to travel 100 kilometers (L/100km) or by what distance in miles can be traveled with one gallon of fuel (mpg). In the average case Ducati Monster 796 will burn 5.60 liters on every 100km of your trip. That is based on the technical specifications of the motorcycle and may vary depending on several factors as style of riding, temperature, road condition etc. As per the MPG number it will run for 42 miles while burning one gallon of fuel. Taken into consideration that it has a 15.0 liters (or 4 gallons)s fuel tank capacity it can be calculated that Ducati Monster 796 can run 268 kilometers or 166 miles with a full fuel tank.
- Engine size (displacement ) of 803 cc - this is the partial volume of the combustion chamber swept by all the pistons in a single movement from bottom dead center to top dead center. Engines with bigger displacement volume tend to produce more power and usually have bigger fuel consumption. It is usually measured in cc (cubic centimeters) or l (liters) and according to the specifications above Ducati Monster 796 has an engine displacement of 803 cubic centimeters.
- 150 mm ground clearance is the shortest distance measured from the ground to the chassis of Monster 796. Variations in ground clearance measures represent a trade-off between practicality and handling of a bike.Ducati Monster 796 bore and stroke diagram
- 88x66 bore and stroke - bore is the diameter of the piston which equals the inside diameter of the engine cylinder. On the other hand stroke is the maximum length that the piston travels up and down inside the cylinder every stroke. According to the technical specifications of Ducati Monster 796 its bore is 88 mm and the stroke is 66 mm. As per the parameters of this Ducati engine the measure of the bore is bigger than the stroke which means that Monster 796 has the so called short stroke engine.
- Compression ratio 11:1. Imagine an engine's piston is at the bottom of its stroke (step one) and moves up compressing the gas in the cylinder till it reaches its top position of the stroke (step 2). The compression ratio is the ration of the volume in step one over the volume in step two. This is actually the relation between the biggest and the smallest capacity of the combustion chamber. Higher compression ratio means bigger pressure of the fuel/air mix in the combustion chamber and better efficiency achieved of its ignition.
- Chain final drive: Depending on the purpose of the motorcycle and its characteristics usually one among the three possible final drive options is preferred. On sport bikes the chain drive is preferred while most cruisers and touring bikes tend to be designed with belt or shaft drive. Bikes have been designed with all three variations of the final drive for many years and each of them has performed well for the purpose it's been used. The final drive of Ducati Monster 796 is chain.
chain driven motorcycleIt is a fact that the majority of motorcycles around the world are driven by chains. Chains are simple and efficient way to transmit horsepower from the engine to the rear wheel. However all chains require keeping an eye on them and proper lubrication when they get dry and cleaning when they get dirty.
- Air cooling system: heat management and biker's comfort are some of the major concerns for the motorcycle manufacturers. Some of the main advantages if the air cooled motorcycles are their simplicity and reliability due to the fact that they have less parts that could eventually break down.Turn signals of Ducati Monster 796
- Replacing the turn signals of Ducati Monster 796 is not a difficult undertaking and usually turns out to be much simpler than expected. When disconnecting the wires of your motorcycle turn signals it is advisable to stick distinct tapes on them if they are not color coded. After locating the bolts that hold them in position you will have to remove them. After the new Ducati Monster 796 turn signals are placed on make sure they are connected to the right slots as previously marked.Bike cover for Ducati Monster 796
The motorcycle cover protects the bike from the elements and the dimensions of the Ducati Monster 796 are important when choosing one. Please keep in mind that any additional aftermarket accessories can increase the dimensions of the bike. In case the motorcycle has saddle bags or windshield then it will most likely need a larger protective cover.

I bought my Ducati Monster 796 four months ago back in June from a local retailer and was quite enthusiastic about taking it over a long run. It's impossible to make a complete judgment on a motorcycle for only four months (during which nothing went wrong) but still it stamps very good impressions over my riding experience.
Ducati Monster 796 is smooth and comfortable bike over long runs with powerful and flexible engine. What has come to my attention during riding around the town is that the throttle response is somewhat kind of sudden. However the riding position is in favor of the urban riders as it is not so leant-forward thanks to the higher position of the handle bars. The fuel tank is small even for this class of motorcycles and you will usually see the low fuel level warning before 100 miles after the last gas station visitation.
I consider installing a Scottoiler to automatically keep the chain perfectly lubricated all the time because now I have to spray it manually and often forgot to do it on time to be honest.
Positive accents: Surprising fuel economy but the fuel tank is small.
Bad points: More fluent response of the throttle would make the urban rides considerably more comfortable.

I have my Ducati Monster 796 for already half a year and here are my impressions from it. The engine is neither under or overpowered. With Michelin Road Pilot tires on it feels pretty comfortable to ride over long distances and handles like a dream. This is my first motorcycle powered by V-twin engine and the vibes are one of the things I have certainly noticed although I can't tell I'm a very experiences biker.
In some occasions I can hardly see the current speed reading in the digital dash. As for the looking – it does look pretty good for a monster. Its luggage carrying ability is limited and not really suitable for 2 ups on a long trip. However the Ducati Monster 796 shows a great fun factor and is more than affordable - good value for money.
Positive accents: Well balanced and comfortable motorcycle.
Bad points: Probably not the best design and efficiency of the digital dash, having difficulty reading the numbers.
