There’s a standard Bosch ABS safety feature, which works in tandem with a front braking system utilizing two 320 mm Brembo discs gripped by two Brembo M4.32 radial calipers. The Monster 797 is also available in a Plus version, showcasing a distinctive look with enhanced standard equipment, including a flyscreen and passenger seat cover.
