First Ride: 2006 Monster 695

Nice lamp

Six Nine Five. Doesn’t have the ring of 999 or 916, but new version of the Monster, the 695, has a place in the world. The Monster is one of major successes, selling 170,000 of various models the years — it’s in several capacities during its 13 life: the original 900, a a 600, a 620, more an 800, a 1000 and an eight-valve

So what’s this 695 all about? its extra 77cc (no, the aren’t good) it replaces the 620, which is a good as it was a bit wet and underpowered. The 695 still works as a rider’s bike as the peak of a creditable 73bhp only at 8500rpm, so you have to work to get yourself in trouble. Lower the revs there’s plenty of to play with, which for a much more engaging and ride than the bike it

And then when you’re let the revs race and the bike to sound like a proper superbike — which its never quite managed to do.

But more than sound. Rev the through to its electronically interrupted at just over 9000rpm and you be fully focused on some fast action going on you. This Ducati is a sportster and it’s when you let it fly the quality and lightness of the chassis show.

It has very quick steering and only a light touch to from extreme to extreme. The is physically unintimidating, so you feel confident to take control and it around. There’s nothing but a of clocks in front of you -which sharpens the impression that in control.

The suspension gives a ride at low speeds which well to fast action My one disappointment was the front brake, stopped the bike adequately but really lacked power high speeds. It’s an which should have uprated with the extra and the elevation of

the bike from starter-commuter to sporty … bike.

A at the overall finish of the bike the Ducati back into a light. The black clocks are and the chrome and paint look Ducati let themselves down with the first small-bore the 600, which looked and low budget, with single brake and matt black — a fashion statement backfired on that model. It looked cheap and unfinished.

Buyers of Ducatis expect — a red Ducati is still one of the evocative and powerful statements in and as such carries with it responsibilities to the brand values. the 695 is more than capable of those Ducati values, and the tag only applies to its price.


Apart from the front brake, here’s a Monster that really the performance goods.
