2002 Ducati Monster 620ie


Lot's of character. Too stiff suspension though


Nothing. Didn't have it for that long though. 1 year and about 8k klm. Got scared by Ducati reputation and traded in for GSX 1400.

General Comments:

Bought it brand new after a Suzuki Bandit 400 (Japanese import) I had.

Bike was a little stiff, as I recall, resulting in an almost-spill I had with the wife on back... Not enough feel and info passed to the rider, especially the USD fork.

Not that friendly for everyday due to stiff suspension. GSX 1400 I bought after was amazingly more easier to ride.

Lots of character though!

Awesome sound!

Great looks!

Come to think of it, it was not a bad bike. Just not ideal for a novice.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
