I know what you mean and for that reason I can't wait to get a Ducati Monster.790 lacks brutal power compared to what I had before but makes up for it with agility, character, looks & smiles. Oh and a lot less running costs etc. with bikes getting ever more ridiculously expensive to buy, maintain, insure & run etc.
Isn’t the monster like ~5bhp more and ~25kg heavier?I know what you mean and for that reason I can't wait to get a Ducati Monster.
Not a fan of how much they cost but if the new 821 lives up to what is said about it, it might be my next long term bike.
