Monster 659 (learner legal)

The “less-is-more” philosophy that has made the Monster a motorcycling icon is now accessible to Learner Riders with the new Monster 659, produced exclusively for the Australian market and the Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme (LAMs) by Ducati, Italy.

With the Monster 659 Learner Legal the Ducati Design Centre has created a sporty and compact bike, with a dynamic, fresh design which encompasses all the Monster values. The tank is Monster in its purest form. Elegant and muscular at the same time, it has a fastening hanger at the front just like the Monster of 1993. The headlight, once again round, is the modern interpretation of what was used on the iconic naked fin right from the start. The 2018 version of the 659 will have a very attractive low standard seat height of 785mm; ideal for all learner, female and smaller riders.

On the Monster 659, the frame is not just a structural component but it is a real design element and is once gain made as a single piece, from the rake to the tail, including the traditional tube handles for the passenger. The same concept is true of the air cooled Desmodue twin-cylinder engine whose cooling fins take us right back to the first generation Monster.
