2007 Ducati Monster 695 Monster 695 Road Manual 6sp 695cc
695 is not merely a name, a number or an engine size. 695 represents a most unique offering in the world of motorcycles and in the Ducati Monster family; it is a motorcycle that is welcoming to novice riders but, at the same time, is a Ducati, delivering a level of performance that can even thrill more advanced riders.
While remaining the entry point to the Ducati Monster family of motorcycles, the Ducati Monster 695 transforms a motorcyclist into a Ducatista.
Ducatisti are members of a tribe of fans whose motorcycle looks, feels and sounds like no other.
The Monster 695, a preview of the Model Year 2007, replaces the 620, and is a quantum leap forward in terms of handling, riding pleasure and performance. The potent new 695 cc L-Twin delivers much greater horsepower and torque
the highest output per cc of any Ducati air-cooled engine
while producing smoother and more fluid power, making every twist of the throttle exciting and satisfying.
The engine of the 695 is the most important technical advancement, and much more than an additional 77 cc of displacement might indicate. The new L-Twin delivers new levels of horsepower and torque, but maintains a smooth and fluid power delivery that ensures an exciting performance in all conditions.
The 695s increase in displacement was achieved with the application of an even more over-square design compared to the 620. The enlargement of the cylinder bore from 80mm to 88mm and the reduction in the stroke from 61.5mm to 57.2mm results in a larger combustion chamber which allows the use of larger intake and exhaust valves, as well as 17% lower piston speeds for greater reliability.
The 620s intake and exhaust valves were 41 mm and 35 mm respectively, while the 695 boasts 43mm and 38mm valves. The larger valves and seats are matched to larger ports with the net result being improved flow capabilities and increased power. Although the valve faces are larger in diameter, the valves remain light thanks to the change to 7mm valve stems, as used in our Testastretta engines, versus the 8mm stems of the 620.
The end result is that the 63 horsepower of the 620 has been increased to 73HP for the 695, the highest output per cubic centimetre of all our Ducati air-cooled engines. Of course there is a significant increase in torque from the already impressive 5.7Kgm of the 620, to an outstanding 6.2Kgm for the 695.
The Monster 695 takes full advantage of the Ducati exclusive Adler Power Torque Clutch, a unique system that makes the 695 even friendlier, safer and more comfortable. It provides an amazingly light clutch pull that is a true benefit especially in urban riding, where frequent stops require frequent clutch use.
Another advantage of the slipper clutch, typically found on race bikes, is that it reduces the destabilizing rear wheel lock-up or chatter phenomenon when downshifting abruptly or inelegantly. It also benefits advanced riders, and racers alike, for the very same reasons.
The Monster 695s two traditional aluminium oval silencers are combined with advanced features of a new exhaust system.
A lambda (oxygen) sensor has been employed on the horizontal exhaust manifold, and this, combined with advanced electronic fuel injection, managed by a powerful Magneti Marelli 5AM ECU, guarantees an optimal air/fuel ratio in ever-changing conditions.
Two larger catalytic converters manufactured with more advanced materials are housed inside the two silencers.
The combination of the lambda sensor, the new catalytic converters and advanced electronics allow the 695 to responsibly adhere to the tough new Euro3 emission standards.
Of course standard equipment includes the uniquely beautiful and throaty Ducati exhaust note. The unmistakable sound is music to the ears of Ducatisti
a symphony of internal combustion.
The new engine clearly needs to be mated to a similarly advanced frame, and the Monster 695 takes full advantage of the confidence-inspiring road-holding and stability of the unique Ducati trellis frame design. The Trellis frame is light, rigid and beautiful, and distinctively Ducati.
The riders environment on the 695 is a perfect mix of sporting character and a confident upright rider position that allows optimal control and comfort. Every Monster 695 rider will feel perfectly at ease thanks to Ducatis lowest seat height, which is 30 mm lower than all other Monsters.
The Monster 695 sports quality Marzocchi 43 mm inverted forks and a Sachs rear shock with adjustable spring preload and rebound damping.
At the front, the 695 employs a Brembo braking system made up of two 300 mm floating discs, together with floating twin-piston calipers. The single 245 mm rear disc sports a fixed twin-piston Brembo caliper.
As on every model in the Monster family, the electronic dash is multi-functional, allowing the rider to switch to either the oil temperature or clock readout even while riding.
It is also possible to dim the instruments illumination should they be too intense during night riding.
The odometer and trip metre readings are indicated on a LCD. An anti-theft system is standard equipment, and its status is displayed on the instrument panel.
