Ducati Monster 696 Review Helmet Hair – Motorcycle Blog

November 12th, 2009 Jesper Bram 17 Comments » | View blog reactions Ducati Monster 696 The Ducati Monster 696 is a perfect example of how you can continuously improve a motorcycle model without just increasing engine size. I’ve tried a few monsters before, and although the monster has always had a high fun factor, the 696 is something special. I don’t know a first thing about what kind of rating the 696 has been getting in the printed motorcycle press. It doesn’t matter because a day in the saddle on this little beast was one of the best times I’ve had on a motorcycle in a long time. The bike has a comfortable riding position not too upright to be all grandpa, ...

Ducati Monster 696 vs. Suzuki Gladius: Same But Different Message * : Email me a copy of this message * mandatory fields Ducati’s Monster has been a success for over 15 years, and Suzuki sat up and took notice. But is its Gladius a stunning design or proof of a lack of imagination? “How can they do that?” asked the man in the parking lot at the coffee shop. Do what? “Make the Ducati look so much like the Suzuki.” We asked if he was a motorcyclist. He said no, not really. We suspected as much. But it raised an interesting question. (Well, interesting in the context of a motorcycle review, perhaps.) If you don’t know which bike came first, does it even ...

2008 Ducati Monster 696 Super Streetbike

0807_sbkp_03_z+2008_ducati_monster_696+side_view.jpg Heavy updates make the entry-level Ducati Monster 696 a streetfighter with enough brawn to back up its bark. It’s easy to get caught up in the big-horsepower and handling battles so common in the 1000cc sportbike class, but there should be more to your riding experience than utter terror. Ducati’s classy middleweight Monster 696 offers the opportunity to enjoy your ride without worrying about quarter-mile times or top-speed numbers. It’s not what this bike is concerned with. There are loads of people who want into the Ducati familia, and the most logical way in starts with the little Monster instead of perhaps a 1098 or ...

Ducati Monster 696 might be India bound – Indian Cars Bikes

Ducati Monster 696 might be India bound by Jay Prashanth on April 2, 2013 2 Comments After the import duty hike(from 60% tto 75%) in the recent 2013 Union Budget, completely built motorcycles imported into India saw their prices shooting up. While Harley Davidson chose to bring more motorcycles through the completely knocked down(CKD) route to tide over the import duty hike, Ducati might use another route. The import duty hike is specific to motorcycles with engine capacities of 800cc and above and this has meant that motorcycles under 800cc will continue to enjoy the 60% import duty. 2013 Ducati Monster 696 Sports Motorcycle This lower import duty means that it makes sense for Ducati to ...

Ducati Monster 696 – Test ride and review I’d rather be riding

Ducati Monster 696 – Test ride and review I’ve never been too interested in roadster style or sports motorcycles. But I’ve been thinking more about pavement riding more recently. It doesn’t help that there are so many nice roads in this area. And then the Ducati Monster caught my eye. Something about its design. Something about the Ducati Type-L motors. So why not test this beauty and see what it has to show beyond its sexy shape? Ducati Monster 696. Eugene, September 3rd, 2011 I couldn’t help spending time looking at the details. The Italians have something about design. They transform the obvious shape into an exotic shape on the detail.   And they make the sum of parts and shapes ...

Touring on my 2012 Ducati Monster 696 ABS (and how I farkled it for a 10,000 mile camping road trip) During our trip this summer, people who knew motorcycles seemed surprised and a bit curious about my choice of bike for a long road trip. “You rode that where?” was pretty much the average reaction. While I’m hardly the first person to tour on a Ducati Monster, and you only need to visit ADV Rider for endless tales of people taking far greater adventures on far less appropriate machines, I’ve still been asked what its like to tour on what’s essentially a naked sportbike. (An air-cooled, Italian naked sportbike, which really is its own special category). So here it goes. First: Would ...

First Ride: 2009 Ducati Monster 696 Claudio’s strongest statement yet. Ducati’s Product Director Claudio Domenicali tells us there’s a subset to the Ducatisti hordes. He talking of the Monsteristi . fans of the company’s most successful model. Since its 1992 introduction, 200,000 have been sold, and the Monster is no longer just a model; it’s a brand of its own, like Corvette in relation to Chevrolet. Updating such an icon was a tough task for the styling and engineering team that worked to create a new Monster, one that would renew the emotions and feelings loyalists had for the original, but with a higher level of styling refinement, quality and engineering. They started with ...
