Lencho,

It still looks taller than a trunk deck on a mid-ninties Buick.

I can't decide if god is going to exact a horrible price for screwing with a Ducati or give plenty of rewards for modify existing beauty into new forms. Either way, I love the looks!

While I do like the hypermotard, I'm pretty sure the terra mostro has more suspension travel and is designed to hold up offroad, where the hypermotard just looks the part...

I'm headed back to Bike Week on Friday....to check out the Ducati tent...will report back on any details that can be gleaned...must...have...Terra...Mostro.

This, by the way, is the XChallenge that we saw in a showroom in Daytona last Saturday....sticker was $9400+ dollars. 5 speeds, no ABS, and a gas tank only slightly bigger than my seven year old Husky has, but...you get a free bike pump under the seat "for the air shock so you can adjust it in the field". It's a $7500 dollar bike at best (but it does sit nicely). I may sign up for a demo on Friday...

terra

Hey DD, i have never been a duc fan but i just might have to make an exception in this case if that thing is ever produced. that is the first real "adv. bike" god i hate that word....... that i have seen, except for the one floating around in my head please let us know a few particulars as soon as you know. also looks like something should be done with that front fender to keep all the junk flying off the front tire from lodging itself into the eng.
man that thing looks good.
do they have a web site or did i miss it in this post?

seat height, looks like a corbin? i don't have a corbin butt
weight
eng. displacement
cost

Registration / titling / insurance is a big question, actually... how will that work?

Heat? Reliability?
You buy a Monster 695 and have it modified. The bike is titled as a Ducati 695.

Gearing will improve a 2v Ducati's low speed manners.

The 2v air-cooled engine with wet clutch is very reliable.

For all you guys wondering about luggage for a Monster.

Hepco + Becker makes racks for Monsters. Some mods would probably be needed since this DS Monster has different peg mounts that may require some fabbing to make the H+B mounts work.

Contact Chris at Eurotech, www.eurotechmotorsports.com , if you are interested in H+B mounts for a Ducati...

H+B makes plastic and aluminium panniers and top boxes.

I suggested this conversion a couple years ago to a fellow Ducati owner looking for a project, his thoughts were the frame wouldent hold up in stock form. Any thoughts on this.

I doubt the frame would be a problem. If it was it would be easy to modify. It's quite a bit beefier than an Elefant frame and I havent heard of any probs with them.

I love how they've stayed true to the 'trellis' design with the skid plate.
