Hi everyone I have recently acquired a 2009 Monster 1100S and whilst doing a bit of research I noticed the 1100/696 models have a cast alloy tail as opposed to the frame style on the previous s2r and S4r.
Can anyone shed any light on why they think Ducati did this. I know the new bikes are lighter but I thought that was from new engine castings as opposed to frame weight. I would have thought the new frame tails might be heavier?

Thoughts anyone?
