Ducati Monster 695 has bigger bores but shorter strokes than the Ducati M620 Monster combine to deliver 10bhp more than the old 620 and the highest output per cc of any Ducati air-cooled V-twin. Improved responsiveness and smooth flexibility of the bigger engines.
Rev the bike through to its electronically interrupted conclusion at just over 9000rpm and you will be fully focused on some seriously fast action going on around you.
Ducati is still one of the most evocative and powerful statements in motorcycling, and as such carries with it some responsibilities to the brand values. Happily the 695 is more than capable of upholding those Ducati values.
