My Ducati Monster 1100 Evo 2011

My latest mount, a Ducati Monster 1100 Evo…

Although dreaming about owning a Ducati since I was a kid, I never thought that a Monster would land in my garage… During my young adolescence, I turned more easily on the passage of a 916 than a Mostro

But after 3 years on the handlebars of a sporty 600, I wanted to try something else… A motorcycle with a slightly larger engine, but without having 180 horses… In order to stay usable on the road and not to have to pay a salary per year for the insurance…

So I tested a lot of big roadsters : Kawazaki Z1000, KTM Superduke, Mv Agusta Brutale 990, Yamaha FZ1, Honda CB1000R…

And although the new Monsters look did not attract me more than that … I fell in love with this machine, as soon as I heard the first explosions of the Italian twin! (Although my first test was done on a machine equipped with the stock exhaust…)

On the handlebars, it was “Monster” fun… Light, agile, easy … I did not feel like driving an 1100… Except when I opened the throttle… A leap forward, arms extended, the front wheel that leaves the ground a few seconds … And beautiful squibs at the deceleration…

I love !! I want this bike !!! It’s more or less what I said to the Ducati commercial, but at 13500€ the bill (with the options I wanted), it hurts… Especially if I want to keep the GSX-R…

So I spent some time on specialized websites. Taking advantage of the winter, I found the pearl (at least, I hope…), an 1100 Evo, black, with the options I wanted, and even some extra… Unfortunately, a few kilometers (18500), but I prefer to have a machine that has some, rather than a bike with 5000 km after 10 years… And then, Ducati, it’s reliable, no ??

This beautiful Italian is, since last November, next to my Suzuki in my garage, waiting for the beautiful days come back to really show me what she has in the belly…
