2009 Monster 1100

Ducati updates an old flame

I’ll start this by saying that from the moment I saw the new Monster, I had a feeling it was all wrong for me. A test ride about a year ago on the 696 version of the bike seemed to confirm that. Since then, I’ve read repeatedly that the 1100 is a really great bike, so I guess I was hoping when I finally rode it I’d be proven wrong. Unfortunately, a recent test ride on the newest beast in the Monster family only confirmed what I already knew.
