Ducati Monster 696, 2011, Motorcycle Insurance Informations


Ducati Monster 696, 2011
North American Specifications
USA MSRP - $8,495 USD

Features and Benefits
The 696 with a comfort-enhancing 20mm bar-riser, 43mm Marzocchi front suspension, a new dark stealth and stone white colour scheme with dark chrome handlebar finish and a new sub-frame ready for the Ducati Performance grab-rail accessory. Launched as an early entry to model year 2011, the 796 now gets Marzocchi front suspension, while the 1100 and 1100 S follow the rest of the range with a new sub-frame ready to accept accessory passenger grab-rails.

The latest Monster family provides a stylish range of lifestyle motorcycles, all available with optional ABS and with high attention to user-friendly detail. The Monster’s cult status as a design icon of hand-built, naked motorcycles remains as authentic as ever.

Monster ABS

The 2011 Monster family now offers all models with optional anti-lock braking system (ABS).
The ABS developed by Ducati and offered as an option on the entire Monster family is the most
sophisticated version available in motorcycling. Designed to reduce the risk of wheel-lock under heavy
braking or when braking in low grip conditions, the system reads wheel speed data from phonic wheel
sensors to detect potential wheel lock. If the wheel speed differential falls below a specific safety limit, the control unit immediately reduces the brake system pressure to the appropriate calliper to avoid wheel lock.

Monster frame
An immensely strong but light tubular steel Trellis frame with aluminium rear sub-frame is the visual and
structural backbone of all the Monsters. Delivering unparalleled rigidity with minimal mass, the frame
design is pure Ducati in its ingenuity and simplicity and also enables a very useful 64 degrees of lock-to-lock steering travel. The brand new lightweight aluminium sub-frame maintains visual continuity with the aluminium footrest hangers and swingarm, and is designed to accept a passenger-friendly grab-rail kit available from Ducati Performance. The kit further enhances passenger ride comfort without compromising the Monster’s stylish lines.

Monster instrumentation
Looking clean and minimalist in true Monster style, the brightly illuminated display provides all essential
data by default, and even more by scrolling with the left-hand switchgear. Data includes speed, revs, time, scheduled maintenance, oil temperature and battery voltage, while warning lights illuminate for oil pressure, fuel reserve, turn indicators, high beam and neutral selection. In addition, the instruments present a reserve fuel trip, immobiliser status and automatic light-off function after 60 seconds with the key on as well as a memory to store lap times recorded by using the high-beam flash button as a stopwatch.

The display doubles as a control panel for the activation of the Ducati Data Analyser (DDA) system, which is available as an accessory from Ducati Performance. All Monsters are built ‘system-ready’ for the data acquisition kit, which consists of a special DDA software and memory key that slots into USB style plug under the seat. The same plug also doubles as the connection for a handy ‘battery maintainer’ available as an accessory from Ducati Performance.
