THE FASTEST WAY TO OWN A DUCATI
The 695 is a most unique offering—a bike that welcomes new motorcyclists and delivers a level of performance that can also thrill more advanced riders. A Monster 695 transforms a motorcyclist into a Ducatista—a rider whose motorcycle looks, feels and sounds like no other. And to make every twist of the throttle exciting, the new Desmo L-Twin 695 engine astounds with its potently smooth and fluid power.
With the lowest seat height of any Ducati, the riding position of the 695 is one of comfort, control and confidence. The rider's position is more upright as hands reach to a set of raised handlebars that are slightly wider for increased comfort and control. The footpegs strike a comfortable balance between a rearward "sport" position and a forward "laid-back" sport cruiser position. All in all, a rider feels confident and in control aboard a Monster 695.

|DUCATI POWER AND APTC CLUTCH|
|The new 695 Desmo L-Twin engine with its advanced computer controlled fuel injection and a new big bore, short stroke design delivers an impressively smooth and fluid 73 hp. The 695 also respects our environment by responsibly adhering to the newest stringent Euro 3 emission standards.|
|The Adler Power Torque Clutch, a Ducati exclusive, makes the 695 even friendlier, safer and more comfortable. It provides a clutch pull that is amazingly light, while also including "slipper" clutch benefits. A "slipper" clutch, typically found on race bikes, benefits the rider by reducing the destabilizing rear wheel "lock-up" or "chatter" phenomenon when downshifting aggressively. It also benefits advanced riders and racers alike for the very same reasons.|
|The 695 takes full advantage of the confidence-inspiring, road-holding stability of the Ducati Trellis frame design. The Trellis frame is light, rigid, beautiful, and distinctively Ducati. Marzocchi 43 mm inverted forks and a Sachs rear shock smooth out the bumps and add their share of poise to the 695’s road manners. And for world-class stopping power and safety, high performance Brembo calipers grip twin 300 mm discs in the front and a single 245 mm disc at the rear.|
