is on the scene in fabulous Monaco for the media launch of the upgraded Ducati Monster 1200. Key updates include more power, a redesigned fuel tank that looks more like the original Monster, a new headlight, shorter wheelbase, Bosch Cornering ABS, a slimmer tailsection and updated TFT instrumentation. Oh, and new footpegs that don’t force feet into uncomfortable positions like the previous generation.

    So this is a high end gambling junket in disguise?

    If you pass his majesty in his car you can say you smoked Prince Albert in a can.

    Put a hundred on black and let it ride. I will have to put this new Monster in my top ten. I don’t care how much it costs.

    It’s tough that you had to trek over to the Riviera to review a motorbike…..for how many days?

    • Kevin Duke

      Just two days, but two good ones!

        Exotic bikes in exotic settings for a couple of days, then home for holiday warmth. Well played, Kevin!
