This cool looking Monster started as an S version and has had a few upgrades along its life.  “Dark” bodywork was installed at some point along with some cool mods listed below.   We just ran the Monster through SUB service and everything looks in great condition.  It is definitely ready to go ride and enjoy!

Here is what was shared with us, most mods were performed in 2006 with just about 5200 miles on it.

  • Wider 5.5″ rear wheel upgrade
  • Remus Carbon pipes
  • Opened airbox
  • K&N Filter installed
  • Custom billet belt covers installed
  • Shift Tech carbon rear fender and side covers installed
  • Rizoma Mirrors, handlebars and grips installed
  • New “desmo” reservoir covers
  • Yoyodyne clutch slave
  • SpeedyMoto frame sliders
  • Sargents seat
  • Headlight and brake light modulators

Last year work performed

  • New chain and sprockets
  • New Tires
  • New Battery
  • 12K service performed in Portland

Here is a bit from an article back then:
“So why is it when you get on a Monster someone throws a switch and turns you into a complete nutter! Maybe it’s me but all you want to do is use the midrange of this bike to its utmost. It wheelies off the throttle, it powers out of corners and roundabouts with total composure, it has good ground clearance (which I just tested!) and is comfortable to ride all day. At speed it’s still surprisingly easy to ride and fairly easy on the arms, with just a flyscreen and wide bars you would think it would be a strain but to my surprise it was fine even at 120+.

The new motor in this version is a real gem and can be revved right through the range and the 6 speed box up to about 125mph or so in very quick time, but this misses the point with this bike, it’s all about the mid-range on the Monster 800. Ducati have made a lot of modifications to the new Monster including upping the capacity to 803cc, a lighter clutch and alloy cage, a new gearbox and a totally smooth injection system. With power output now at around 74bhp (more than the original 900) and a whole lot of torque, you can have a lot of fun on this bike. Riding the Monster is fun, real fun! It is really easy in traffic and yet will blast up to 3 figures plus in seconds, the most fun is definitely in the middle figures though. I found myself riding most of the time on back roads at around 70- 90mph and just enjoying the feel of this brilliant bike. It has a distinct feel to it unlike no other bike on the market, something that resembles riding a supermoto but with the added performance package thrown in. It’s difficult to describe but you find yourself suddenly opening the throttle at every opportunity just to feel the front lift and the rush of torque! It really is motorcycling in its element.

Add a good suspension set up to a brilliant motor and the Monster 800 shines. The front end has 43mm inverted forks (unfortunately not adjustable) and the rear has a Sachs unit with pre-load and rebound damping. With this set up you would think that it would have its restrictions, but it seems to do the job extremely well and it really does take a lot to unsettle or make the bike misbehave in any way. The new Monsters also have the trellis frame and box-section swing arm from the S4. Advertise with us For details of how to reach over 1/4 Million readers per month – click here The handling of this new Monster is pin sharp, and with a low centre of gravity adds to the overall feel in traffic and out on the open road. At low speeds you really have no problem filtering, the smoothness of the bike combined with the low seating position and wide flat bars place no strain on your wrists. And when you get out on the open road you can really exploit the potential of the new Monster. Braking comes courtesy of Brembo. Twin 320mm discs with ‘Gold series’ 4 piston calipers up front, and a rear of 245mm from the same stable ensures very rapid stopping power if things suddenly go wrong up ahead! and there’s plenty of feel from the brake set up which just adds to the riding pleasure with this bike”.
