I saw this article today in USA Today, not ONE mention of the Monster or Ducati at all!
You have to be kidding, and I quote from the photos section of the article "Buell has led the trend toward naked motorcycles" Yea and Al Gore invented the internet.

It's as if Ducati Monsters don't even exist or even the Ducati brand for that matter. Somehow we seem to get left out of alot of articles.
I'd rather pull the motor out of my Ducati and pedal it through the canyons than ride a Muell. ;)
Buell led the "trend".......... RIGGHHTTT. Keep dreaming! HD must have pictures of a few motorcycle journalists in compromising positions.

Unique is better, the less said the better....

remember the truism "if there weren't so many idiots in the world we wouldn't look as good"

let them get smug on a Buell

Harley was still thinking about how to make the back seat on the Fatboy wide enough for some fat biker wife while Ducati was leading the way.

"Japanese makers have only recently joined the naked bike scene behind makers like Buell and Triumph"

Yeah, right! The Honda Hawk GT was one hell of a naked bike in the late 80's to early 90's. A v-twin 650 with a single side swingarm well before the speed triple or muell.

Fun on the track too.

What's a Yamaha Z1? Do they mean FZ1?
It's an R1 without any ucking airings.

Actually I think Duc gets too much of the glamour press as it is and the effect is not always good. But you are all right, to have an article on naked bikes and not mention the monster is absurd.
