I was looking at this and the SV650 from Suzuki.
I don't know which would be a better choice. I kind of like these naked bikes for some reason.

That new monster only runs a 160 rear tire. The old ones ran a 180 series.

I like the new Monster other than the frame. Trellis up front with that nasty rear subframe?!?!?!?


I'm in love with the 848 though.

i like the 848, wish it had a dry clutch though. Except for when it comes time to replace them... My last duc clutch exploded and trashed everything inside. Clutch basket and pressure plate were trashed...it did give me good excuse to buy a slipper clutch though

No sir, you're incorrect.
The 620 and 695 Monsters have always run a 160 rear tire, as well as some of the 750s.
