Ducati Monster 696

The new Ducati Monster 696 represents the next generation and what Ducati calls "the final word in urban excitement". The Monster 696 looks like it would be fun either on your favorite downtown routes or unleashed, where it should deliver more performance than ever before. The engine of the new 696 is an evolution of the previous 695 version. Measuring 696cc, it boasts a series of updates and refinements.Power output gets a 9% boost to 80 hp (59 kW) and an 11% increase in torque to 50.6 lb-ft. This new engine continues to have the best horsepower per liter ratio of all Ducati’s air-cooled units, and it ensures a smooth and powerful delivery for a relaxed but thrilling ride in all conditions. This increase in power has been achieved by the introduction of new cylinder heads, which are now similar to those fitted on the 1100 2V engine fitted to the Multistrada and Hypermotard. Bore and stroke remain identical to the previous 695 model at 88 x 57.2 mm, but the pistons and combustion chamber have been revised to optimize the fluid dynamics of the new ports.
