I got to spend some time on a Ducati 696 recently in it's factory nekkid config, and was thinking to myself "this would be a cool adventure bike platform..." and then remembered the terra monstro! Cool thread, and I agree with Dr. Rock about the price, as I probably have close to $20K wrapped up in my KTM Adventure if I added it all up over 2+ years, which includes street & dirt wheels, custom suspension, blah blah blah. Having an entire bike custom built and tuned for YOU for the price of the Terra Monstro seems totally reasonable, even for a poor stiff like me.
Very cool. Please post some Ducati dual-sport porn pics from time to time!
