Ducati has unveiled a new member of its Monster lineup as an early 2011 model.

The 2011 Ducati Monster 796 will be slotted into the lineup between the 696 and 1100 models, both of which will still be produced. The new Monster is powered by an air-cooled Desmodue 796 engine, which first debuted in the Hypermotard 796 in late 2009.

According to Ducati, the Monster 796 produces 87 hp at 8,250 rpm and has 58 ft-lb. of torque at 6,250 rpm, compared to the Hypermotard 796's 81 hp at 8,000 rpm and 55.7 ft-lb. at 6,250 rpm.

The new Monster 796 will be available in Ducati Red, arctic white silk or diamond black silk, each with the classic red trellis frame. Ducati is also offering a series of customized graphics called “Logomania”, the second part of the Project Monster Art collection. The Monster Art kits offer a number of options based on classic bikes from Ducati’s past. Also available for the Monster 1100 and Monster 696, the kits include tank covers, a mudguard, a micro-bikini fairing and seat cover. See our gallery for some of the Logomania options for the Ducati Monster 796.

The Ducati Monster 796 will be available in June at a price of $9,995. The Logomania Monster Art accessories are available for $599.99, but Ducati North America is offering a free kit with the purchase of a new 2009 or 2010 Monster 1100 or 1100S at participating dealers until June 30.

I like the single sided swingarm & wheels! (and logomania choices)

On my wishlish for this bike:

1. Higher bars (perhaps an option) and instrument cluster. My 696 has the Jese Racing risers, and I would never go back to the world of wrist pain again!

2. A bigger flyscreen (superfly??), something like on the old monsters.

3. A one inch lower seat height, but using the touring seat.

Another thought:

The return of the ST would be really cool!

Completly agree on these two...
Now, SSS for the ones who cannot afford/need/want the bigger M1100/S...
Whished I could mount this engine on my M620 frame...

Where did you get those Jese risers? I wonder if they would fit the 796.
