With a flick of the wrist, you’re flying.  The latest naked street bike by the famed Italian bikesmiths at Ducati is hungry for the pavement in your local urban environment.  The Ducati Monster 696 is a 696cc asphalt eater fit for daily commutes, weekend free rides and everything in between.  Its naked design is held together with a trellis style frame, appearing like a red skeleton holding together guts of steel.  If you’re so inclined to pick one up for yourself, don’t pass on the Ducati Data Analyzer.  The DDA gathers data from your rides and stores it in a USB thumb system that you can pull up on your PC, allowing you to tailor your performance for the best ride possible.  Fast, smart and techy, just how we like our bikes and our women… [ducati via coolhunting]
