    2017 Ducati Monster 797 Review: First Ride



    Hemlines and exhausts go up and down, radiators come and go, but the Monster hasnít really ever gone out of fashion since it hit the runway, dang, has it really been 23 years ago? 1994 brought us Miguel Galluzziís original naked bike, and thereís been a veritable plethora of Monsters over the years ever since. Also Monsterinos, as Ducati likes to call the smaller-displacement ones.

    The new 797 really does pay its respects to the original, right down to the very nice aluminum clasp that holds down the front of its 4.4-gallon steel fuel tank. The steel trellis frame is an important design element; the red frame and alloy cooling fins are now a classic combination (or you can go dark and get a black bike with black frame), complete with passenger grab rails which provide a good place for bungee hooks. The single not-quite round headlight incorporates a couple of LED marker lights, which youíll find in the tail and turnsignal lights too.
