Input on Ducati Monsters wanted

Hopefully here soon I'll have a new bike, but before I do I want to get some opinions and hopefully some owners' input from this particular bike.

Like the title says, I'm going to get a Ducati Monster 1100s.

Can you chime in on different things like:

-Comfort
-Speed
-Handling
-Brakes (brembo)
-Gas
-Maintenance

and anything other you find worthy of mentioning?

I want to get an idea of what I'm looking at before I drive across the city to look at and buy it

Thanks fellas

I have not ridden the monster. However, would like to share that I have had great experience with Bob Lundsford Service Dept for my Ducati Paul Smart.

I have not been happy with Eximports service Department.

If you like sitting a little upright and don't mind a little windblast on the highway you will have tons of fun.

Just my 2 cents...

I had an 800. No issues with reliability. Just to took it AMS in Dallas when needed. I believe that Ducati has pushed out miles for valve adjustments so for a newer Monster the maintenance $$$ should be less.

The Ducs are very nice. They are extremely light and soooo easy to flick around through traffic much more so than supersports. They are really lacking in the power department compared to other nakeds, but for around town they are absolutely perfect. You should just get an Aprilia Tuono and forget about it. Those things rip and you'll never see another on the road, but I am a little bias. You can get leftover 09s for much less than a Monster 1100 and the maintenance is...well there isn't much maintenance on them. I miss my T.

ducati FTW! My hyper has the 1100 air cooled motor and has definitely impressed my for a whopping 95 hp. My monster is the S4R so its the old school 996 liquid cooled motor.
