The Ducati Monster 696 is an entry-level premium mid-range bike that has been enhanced with revised ergonomics, and new subframe that is now also equipped with Kayaba front suspension to complete an ideal package. The riding position of the Monster 696 gives the rider firm control and with its low 30.3 inch seat height, the easy-to-reach handlebars and user-friendly 4-point adjustable levers, every rider will find it easy to conquer. The sculpted fuel tank cover allows for the greatest comfort and control and the narrowing of the ‘waist’ area of the 696 has the same effect as lowering the seat height, making it easier to get both feet flat on the ground.
