Nice Bike but too expensive
I absolutely love Ducati's and considered buying the 659 Monster (LAMS).
In the end I got a CB400 and really think it's the better bike.
The Monster looks awesome and it's a solid bike with excellent equipment levels.
Honestly, I still think that the bike is very capable, but I assume that the LAMS version is restricted, and that that's the reason for my disappointment.
At $16k, it's nearly 50% more expensive then the CB400 and twice the price of the CBR500.
Questions & Answers
How do i get to the battery on my son's 659 Monster
2014 model i think?
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.
Engine alarm on immobilizer . I have to push down the key and re rotate to switch it on . Also low beam and tickel charger not working.. Any help?
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.
