The Ducati Monster created the compact, sporty and essential “naked bike” category. Designed with the philosophy, “All you need is a saddle, tank, engine, two wheels and handlebars,” the Monster 900 was unveiled as a prototype at the 1992 Cologne International Motorcycle Show with a Trellis frame from the 851/888 series and the 904 cc air/oil cooled “Pompone” engine from the Supersport range.
The Monster is most successful Ducati in history with more than 250,000 released from the production lines of the Ducati Factory in Borgo Panigale, Italy.
The Ducati Monster is known as the most approachable and accessible model in the Ducati range and with Ducati Premier financing, aspiring Ducati owners can purchase their own Monster 797 starting at only $96 per month. Plus, Ducati just introduced the New Rider Program, which will reimburse $250 toward a state authorized rider education course with the purchase of an eligible Ducati.
