Did you solve the problem? My 2009 696 Monster had the exact same problem in the past few days.

Ended up being bad battery wire routing. They go over the cylinder rather than around putting excess tension on the wires. On mine, the battery terminal actually snapped off.
New battery, re-routed wires, and everything was peachy.

Default Similar but different - Zero Electrics

Hi All/Anyone/Someone,
I was on my way to the MotoGP on Saturday when an hour down the road my journey was over.
After refuelling I pushed my bike ('09 696) out of the way of the pumps turned the bike off and removed the key (I didn't lock the bars).
I grabbed a coffee and 5-10 minutes later tried to start it but there was absolutely NO POWER/ELECTRICS.
No LED on the display indicating immobiliser was armed
No headlight. Nothing.
All fuses were ok. I borrowed a multimeter but could not find any power to fusebox.
I replaced the battery a few months ago (after leaving it in "park" for three days) and ride it quite regularly. I haven't ridden less than 30 minutes between ignition cycles.
In the interests of full-disclosure, it was during my attempted fault finding I noticed my registration/number plate missing and small cut black cable tie laying under my bike. These last two could be just a coincidence as my rego plate could have come off during the hour ride there and it was parking area. Anyone out there with an idea what could be wrong??

Problem resolved.
Removed the battery to find the negative terminal had cracked at the post resulting in an intermittent connection. Appears as if the Causeway Ducati Service Center in Perth, WA overtightened the terminal when they installed the battery or it was a faulty battery in the first place. Not to mention the battery they installed was a "Roadstar". Not exactly the top brand in batteries by all accounts.

Maybe this will help someone troubleshoot in the future...
