Beautiful Italian bikes don’t come any cheaper than the $7795 Monster 695. Vespas don’t count.
A 30.3-inch seat height means that even pipsqueaks like Duke can touch the ground with confidence.
Ducati has bumped displacement by 12.5% and boosted horsepower by 22%, giving Duke the chance to pull 17% better wheelies.
A twisty road like Malibu’s Latigo Canyon is the natural stomping grounds for a smart-handling but modestly powered tool like the 695.
Mufflers come pre-beveled from the factory for extra ground clearance. We added some of our own.
Gauges are simple yet effective
