2009 Ducati Monster 1100 S
A soul-stirring experienceBy (I am an Owner) on Nov 03, 2018
People speak of Italian bikes as having a soul, but until you own one, (and by all means, liberate the beast within with proper a exhaust system so it can breathe, perform and boom like it's meant to), and if you're fortunate enough to live in mountain country, there may not be, dollar for dollar, ... a more effective stress-destroying device in the world. The last of the big air-cooled Monsters, the '09 1100 S is daily-driver-friendly, as reliable as a bike can be, drop-dead-gorgeous and soul-stirring in ways hard to put into words. In fact, there isn't anything else in the world, on wheels, at ANY price that I would rather own. It's that good. An absolute JOY.
Best bike I've ever hadBy (I am an Owner) on Apr 17, 2013
My wife rides the monster 696 and its a great bike but when I do occasionally let her ride my 1100s she is always praising how much she wishes she would have just paid the price difference to get an 1100. Simply put its an amazing bike to ride.
