No la, i cant afford a Strada. keke so a Monster m400 is a cheaper choice, btw is ok lah, who care abt top speed and etc losing to this bike or so. You ride with passion of Ducati will do. If i get a M400, i will hack abt the rest, like you change to pipes that save LIFES hahaa.. Really la, see if the other party willing to sell bo lor.Originally posted by nE0@Nov 3 2004, 01:51 PM
Play? Haha.. I think you'd be quite dissapointed with the M400 after you come off your hornet600. You gotta love Ducatis to own one, cos power to displacement ratio from the air cooled V-twin is significantly poorer than liquid cooled inline4s.
Basically for liquid cooled V-twins, power is comparable to displacement one step lower. Example, the 1litre 999 is comparable to a 750cc inline4. For air cooled ones even worse. Top end of the 400cc Monster looses to hornet 250
But what it lacks in top end it makes up in torque all round. Its a different experience, being able to pull easily from low RPMs. And the vibrations, the induction sound, the V-twin exhaust sound.... You just don't get that on any inline4s
