2008 696 Monster, 80 horsepower and 50 foot pounds of torque, weighs 355 pounds. It's seems like baby street bike! I don't know the cost but it's a Duc I'll bet it's expensive, if it's under $10,000 it will suprise me.

My 919 is about $8000 out the door, about 400lbs, about 100HP modified, but look it's old style, it's not a new bike Honda's new replacement for my bike is the CB1000F Hornet which would eat this little bike alive or the new CB600F Hornet which has the CBR600RR motor would eat it twice.


Boy we just dont' have anything better to do. Do we?

actually, i'm jumping back and forth into this while i work on my research paper.

In the end, there is a bike for everyone and someone for every bike.

I don't understand owning the latest generation supersport liter bikes but they sell like hot cakes.

I like the 696; Nice street fighter look; Not sure about the dual exhaust, that may need to be changed...

I don't like the new head light - Of course, I'm kind of impartial, since I'm running the old style monster setup on my bike.

The rest of the bike looks nice.

Um, it's well under $10k and did anyone ever say the 696 is the fastest bike in the world, or was ever meant to be? Getting 80 hp out of 696cc twin is pretty impressive. Besides it's the way it delivers the power that makes it fun to ride not the peak numbers. It's also about power to weight ratio. The hornet may beat it in a straight line but I think it would hold it's own in the twisties.

And if you really want to compare.

919 455 lbs dry 4.55 pounds per hp if it has 100hp (numbers per sport rider magazine)
696 355 lbs dry 4.43 pounds per hp at 80 hp

power to weight ratio winner = 696.

Have you ridden any of the new liter bikes? I am sure that alone would change your mind, unless you like going slow that is. . .
