Welcome bones! While there are lower powered first bikes, your Monster has fairly linear throttle response, so can be a good first bike with a little restraint.

Welcome and Enjoy.

That series of air-cooled Monsters were stunning IMHO and I was sad to see them dropped from the line-up a few years back. Fortunately, I'm very pleased to see their return.

Sadly, we don't have the 659 in Canada, only the 797 which has a higher seat height.

Current rides:
2016 Ducati Monster 1200 R Badass Black
2016 White Ducati Panigale 959
