Ducati Monster 696 now comes in choice of colors

If the Ducati Monster 696 wasn't cool enough as cutting edge naked bike, now it comes in a choice of colors.

According to Ducati...

Following the world unveiling at the last Milan Motorcycle Show (EICMA07), the new Monster 696 reveals its two new colour schemes just a few weeks from its arrival on the market.

In addition to the ‘Ducati red’, the Monster 696 will also be available from April 2008 in the new ‘pearl white’ and traditional ‘matte-black’ or ‘dark’.

‘Pearl white’, already featured on other highly successful Ducati models like the Superbike 848, emphasizes the muscular lines of the Monster 696 which contrast sharply with the seat, sub-frame and Hybrid-Trellis frame. The ‘dark’ version demonstrates how the Monster silhouette remains totally uncompromised by centralising the bike’s volumes and masses. Both colours are complemented perfectly by black wheels and frames.

The new Ducati Monster 696 best identifies the next generation of naked bikes. It is a bike that perfectly combines fun and excitement in any type of environment – relaxed in the city, but at the same time ready to unleash its sport character with top performance.


Refined style and design are the clear motivations behind the new Monster and the continued perfection of the Desmo engine ensures that its ‘saint and sinner’ image will impress any rider. A comfortable and confidence-inspiring chassis combines with the famously smooth and powerful Ducati L-Twin engine to provide the most enjoyable riding experience. The balance of new technologies expressed in stylishly finished materials is shaped around the original cool Monster heritage.

Maintaining the unique style and character built on 15 years of world-wide success, the Monster now moves forward into a new era.
