Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of Ducati Monster 696:
- The fuel efficiency (shown as fuel consumption above) shows how efficient is a certain motorcycle in converting the chemical energy of the fuel into kinetic energy. It is usually measured by how many liters are needed to travel 100 kilometers (L/100km) or by what distance in miles can be traveled with one gallon of fuel (mpg). It means that based on its technical specifications Ducati Monster 696 will burn a gallon of fuel on every 38.6 miles of your trip or 6.10 liters on every 100km. It can be calculated that Ducati Monster 696 can cover a mileage of 152 miles with a tank full of fuel based on its fuel efficiency and fuel tank capacity - 15.0 liters.
- 696 cc engine displacement (engine size) - this is the total swept volume of all the pistons in the cylinders when they are performing a complete stroke. Engines with bigger displacement volume tend to produce more power and usually have bigger fuel consumption. It is usually measured in cc (cubic centimeters) or l (liters) and according to the specifications above Ducati Monster 696 has an engine displacement of 696 cubic centimeters.
- 145 mm ground clearance - this can be defined as the distance between the lowest point of the Monster 696's chassis and the level ground surface below it. The lower the ground clearance the better the handling but on the contrary higher clearance makes the bike more practical on uneven roads and off-road.Bore and stroke measures of Ducati Monster 696
- 88x57.2 bore and stroke - this is a term concerning the engine parameters describing the ratio between cylinder bore diameter and piston stroke. If bore and stroke have equal measures then the engine is called square. The technical specification of Ducati Monster 696 shows that its bore and stroke measures are 88 mm and 57.2 mm. For this particular Ducati engine bore is bigger than stroke meaning that Monster 696 has a short stroke engine.
- Compression ratio 10.7:1 - this parameter refers to how the cylinder's space changes from when the piston is down at its lowest point to when the piston is up at its highest point in the stroke. In other words it represents how tightly the mixture of fuel and air in the combustion chamber is pressed before the ignition. Engines with higher compression ratio are more energy efficient because they are able to extract more mechanical energy from a certain amount of fuel.
- Chain final drive: There are currently three ways to drive power from a motorcycle engine to its rear wheel - chain, belt and shaft drive. Since they all have their specific advantages it is hard to tell the best among them. All of them are workable technologies and have proved that over the years. The final drive of Ducati Monster 696 is chain.
chain driven motorcycleChain final drives are known for their simplicity and efficiency in driving power from the engine to the rear wheel of the motorcycle and are one of the most popular final drive options by far. However all chains require keeping an eye on them and proper lubrication when they get dry and cleaning when they get dirty.
- Air cooling system: motorcycle engines can be air cooled or liquid cooled and they both have their advantages. The air cooled motorcycles came first and have more history in world's best know manufacturers as Harley Davidson and BMW. They have less moving parts and therefore less things to break.Turn signals replacement of Ducati Monster 696
- Replacing the turn signals of Ducati Monster 696 is not a difficult undertaking and usually turns out to be much simpler than expected. Reconnecting the motorcycle turn signals cables would not be a problem as these wires are generally color coded. After locating the bolts that hold them in position you will have to remove them. After making sure that the new Ducati Monster 696 turn signals sit in the housing properly you may proceed with connecting the wires.Picture of Ducati Monster 696 cover
The dimensions of the Ducati Monster 696 are important when choosing a motorcycle cover. The overall measures of the bike could be increased by some aftermarket accessories. In case the motorcycle has saddle bags or windshield then it will most likely need a larger protective cover.
