    Sweet bike. Great handling, lovely engine, and that Ducati note and presence.

    published

    The bike was purchased for my wife who is a LAMS rider. She stepped up from a KTM 390 Duke. After riding a number of other bikes in the LAMS class it became obvious that this bike is the king. This bike is easier to ride than the KTM and is both more forgiving and more rewarding. It is a keeper.

    Bike that everyone have to drive once in his/her life (Ducati monster 659)

    published

    I should say the bike is something that makes you alive and to have such experience, I should say Ducati is one such brand makes bikes, which feels so balanced and a well balanced will not make you feel the weight of the bike. i have done a test drive with this bike and it is more of between pro and learner bike. so i should recommend to the first time buyers.

    Ducati Monster 659 LAMS Electrical problems. NOT HAPPY.

    published

    I bought this bike new. It has traveled 5300kms, it is seven months old. The starting problems began when the bike was approx four months old. The bike has an electrical Gremlin. The bike fails to start as the digital dash does not recognise neutral causing it not to start. It has been towed twice back to dealer under warranty and they can not find the issue. NOT HAPPY.
    Update on Ducati 659. Had bike towed back to shop.They have fixed the issue, they were very aloof about what the problem was. The main thing is that it is fixed and has not missed a beat since. Loving my Ducati again.

    I would like to purchase one!

    It really is a culture

    published

    This is my wifes second bike and is an upgrade from a cb250.
    What an upgrade it is! It isnt called a MONSTER for no reason. It loud, aggressive and the styling is nice.
    We have the full Termi kit, carbon fibre kits, rizolla bar end mirrors...

    Really nice bike
    Looks good and is loud.

    Thank you very much my friend. I will get one as soon as I can (and put Termignoni popes on it ;D). Just wondering whether I should take lessons on a crappier cycle first!

    Hi Nobby, Have not had the need to access the battery, but I'm guessing it's under the seat somewhere. Just watched a You Tube Video using a 696 (same animal just a bigger heart) hmmm, looks complicated. Once you get it changed, I'd suggest getting a charger and keep the beast plugged in AND switched on. Mine is on the charger 24/7, have never had an issue so far.

    Cheers

    Hmmm, I see a visit to your local dealer in your future sir. Im totally useless with vehicle electrics, always have been, but have built many electronic bits for my hobbies without a problem, go figure.
