Ducati Monster 696

The Monster 696 is a perfect example of how you can improve a motorcycle model just increasing engine I’ve tried a few monsters and although the monster has always had a fun factor, the 696 is something special.

I know a first thing what kind of rating the 696 has getting in the printed motorcycle It doesn’t matter because a day in the on this little beast was one of the times I’ve had on a motorcycle in a time.

The bike has a comfortable position not too upright to be all grandpa, and not too leaning to get you sore wrists. So city riding and back riding is a no brainer on the Ducati 696. Of course subsonic speeds on the is not it’s natural habitat, but still plenty of power to a speeding ticket collection.

First thing you’ll is how the 696 operates and handles like a covered in sugar. Everything match each other. brakes and clutch is an easy two operation and the rear brake has the you need to brake without of locking up the rear wheel.

weight and the 160 rear tyre the bike very willing to from turn to turn.

There is one kink in the however. The Ducati is very which I guess if you are more 180cm can make you feel a crammed. I’m 175cm and getting used to the feeling of “clicked” on to the bike I actually it’s one of the bikes forces.

I help thinking of the hovering things from the forest scene in Star Wars of the Jedi.

Another thing you to appreciate is the grumpy snarl it when you twist it’s ear a bit and it through the revs. Even standard factory cans the is exactly as it should be. I’m not I’d even change if it was mine. Speaking of sound.

That annoying whining clutch sound Ducati to be known for is all gone. Some loved it, I know. But I’m they changed the clutch and got rid of that sound.

You could go on and the 696 Monster. But what remains is this is a motorcycle who will beginners and experienced riders fine. Beginners will the easy handling and hassle control. The more experienced appreciate the amount of abuse bike can take on the twisting country roads.

Do a track day on the 696 and watch your mates when they struggle in the on their 1000+ccm bikes you gracefully overtake them.

A Monster 696 is a perfect example of the in the saying that you have to the motorcycle, not the other way around. is exactly what this is all about.

Thanks to Columbus International for the test bike for this

The old 620 and 750 also had a wet clutch just the 695 and 696 which is why the “rattling sound” is It was never there.

The 800, 1000, 1100, s4, s4r, monsters all had/have dry clutches the rattle.
