The Ducati Monster 796 runs smooth on the lightweight Desmodromic L-twin engine, a wet clutch for slipper action for better stability with a lighter feel. The exhaust has a Lambda probe for each cylinder for exact power delivery. The Ducati Monster 796 has a lightweight tubular steel Trellis frame, an aluminum sub frame and footrest hangers that helps keep the weight off.
