I'm not a ducati owner, not even a 2A license holder, but I've loved ducati monster since before I had a bike. And reading what you said, just made me want it more. You must be working at a ducati showroom or you just love it in a way you cant say.

 

Cant say....

Dreamed I was a muffler. Woke up exhausted.

lol...

 

any ducati monster owner here like to share what is the average depreciation for a 695 or 696??

 

Wah this would be the first time i hear ppl asking abt depreciation on a bike.

 

Pre used or new? And pls, which bike. Both bikes are very different machines, not a simple case of just 1cc.

Both pre-owned (2nd hand). Actually, i really like to know for both if it's not too troublesome for you :)

 

Thank you.

695 - u can get it abt 14k. sell maybe abt 12k after 1 yr i suppose.

696 - u can get it abt 18k. sell maybe abt 15-16k after 1 yr i suppose.

 

i'm just guessing based on my personal opinion. buying a ducati is like buying shares. u buy high, u sell high, just as long as the market dun crash. u buy low, and the demand goes up, u make money lor. but in general, no 1 talks abt dep for ducatis. its a brand driven by passion. the cost of ur yrly maintenance should be more of a concern instead of yrly dep.

2-3k depreciation per year is quite abit for a bike. But like what you mentioned ducati is a brand driven by passion.

 

Btw, since you mentioned cost for yearly maintenance. What is the average amount you spend on your monster? (Pls indicate which monster you are riding)

 

Anyone wanna share?

M400 --> priceless

MS4, SC1k --> ave 2k ea /yr

 

Its relatively easy to gauge maintenance cost for ducatis per yr cos the wear and tear and servicing intervals are relatively the same across the board, just abit longer for the newer models.

 

MTS, diavel --> 24000km valve clearance inspection

you can try dent repair yourself using compressed air and hair dryer.

 

 

but note, this is for light dents that are not sharp or piercing, those wide and round types. and plastic only i think, metal will require higher temperature difference.

February 2011 - March 2012 = Phantom TA 200

March 2012 - August 2013 = Suzuki Impulse 400

Present = BMW (Bus, MRT, Walk)

Anyone has got experience of having installed Rizoma footpegs on their Monsters? I seem to be having trouble with the rearbrake side - the "play" or "travel" seems to be of an exceedingly wide range, and it beomes very awkard to operate?

Did you mean footpegs or the foot levers? Pegs come in 2 types, the foldable ones can be awkwardly wide. The fixed ones are ok. I have a pair at home if you wanna try and see if it's different(foldies). The foot levers are reach adjustable. You might wanna try if you can shorten for a lower dip or tighten for higher.

You're absolutely right there! I'm not sure what the correct description is though! It's the lever you step on when you hit the rear brakes - brake lever, I suppose?? As they say, a picture paints a thousand words, so here goes - the lever - the part that is circled - has far too wide a travel, and as such, has a negative impact on the efficiency of the rear brakes.

Dude, u can adjust it higher. Just unscrew, take it out, shift it higher, and screw it back.

Hey guys, while @ Ducati Caffe over the weekend chatting with foreign Duc owners, was told that a fully made in Thailand Monster (M795) will be hitting asia soon. Very basic no frills edition similar like the M696 but with a bigger displacement. Wonder how much cheaper will it be?
