Decisions, Decisions

General Question: Which bike would you choose?

I've been looking at some bikes and I went to Eximports to sit on a few. I narrowed it down to the Daytona 675 and Ducati Monster 696. I swear, the Ducati felt me up; I didn't want to get off. The Daytona was stunning in itself as well and has its perks.

What's the MH community opinion on these bikes? I love the naked look just as much.

The Monster
Ducati696

The 675
Daytona675

I've heard the horror stories.

I just knew it as a place with an abundance of bikes.

Both bikes are light (if forbid I needed to pick it up) and nimble, and not everybody has them.

I just have to convert my WRX to a dirtbike/motard now and in need of a new commuter/weekend warrior. That's right, need.

Does the Ducati have a rival?

Ducati? Rival? That's an oxymoron There's no substitute. But they're totally different bikes. Make up your mind first if you want a naked bike or a super sport.
