2009 Ducati Monster 696

Hey fellow forum members,
So my last thread on here was about motorcycles and what you guys think. I was looking at sport bikes in the 600cc range. Specifically a Honda CBR. However, I came across an awesome deal on a 2009 Ducati Monster 696. Beautiful bike, great deal. 3400 miles. Not a scratch on the paint. It's such a nice ride. Very fast, loads of power and torque when you need it. I love the upright comfortable seating position. It's a blast to ride. That 695cc Vtwin is awesome! It looks sexy as hell and it's engineered like an Italian. Hand built, all the bolts have a line of paint to show that they are secure and haven't moved. It handles very sporty and I'm loving every minute of riding her! She is an excellent addition.

She is my Italian mistress named Giulia! I'd like you all to meet her!

That is a pretty good call on a first bike - quick, but not quite 600 quick, and damn sexy.

Nice!

Thats a nice bike. I am a fan of the Ducati, I don't have a bike, but my wife wants one. I was looking at the Ducati 851, its a pretty bike.

Good choice, Coolie. Beautiful motorcycle. Enjoy it in good health. Now go on ebay and see if you can find a plate re-locator. Then you can get rid of that hideous billboard that comes out the back of the bike, in exchange for something a little more subtle.

There's a reason a Ducati is a Ducati

Very good health. Fender delete will be the first mod after all gear is acquired. Then a brake light flasher and an exhaust! Gotta hear that Ltwin in action!

Congrats
