The new Monster borrows the Scrambler engine – an 803 cc desmodue  L-Twin – which manages to meet the Euro IV regulation despite the fact it’s a classic air-cooled unit. 

With 75 horsepower, 68.9 Nm of torque, 193 kg, and an 805 mm seat height, it seems like a friendly bike that's suitable for those who want to buy their first middleweight.
