To some of us here at Cycle World, the introduction of the original Ducati Monster 900 in 1993 seems like just yesterday. But the fact is, it’s been a quarter-century since Ducati helped craft the contemporary naked-bike segment. Yikes! Fast-forward to right now and meet the Monster 797+, the entry point into the current six-model Monster lineup. Ducati sometimes plays it fast and loose with model designations, and thus the Monster 797+ actually displaces 803cc, not the 797cc you might expect. Supporting the air-cooled, fuel-injected, 73-hp engine is the Italian company’s famous trellis frame, which is outfitted with an inverted fork, a gull-wing swingarm, and a reasonable 31.7-inch seat height.
