It won't sell. It has to compete with these new liquid cooled bad boys - Street 750 & 500 Motorcycles | Harley-Davidson USA.

The rear cylinder manifold looks like it could have some potential problems. That heat shield over it appears to be directly in the path of lower leg/knee.

I'd echo what some others have said - Monster is starting to look a little dated compared to other current generation of naked bikes (Brutale, Speed Triple, Tuono, SuperDuke, etc.)

(Disclaimer - I've never really been a monster fan so take it for what you will)

Am i missing something here, or does the monster 1200 not have a gear indicator??

I couldn't find any info that the monster has one, neither on any of the photos of the dash.
That's pretty ridiculous considering it has the same dash as the panigale.

Anybody got any infos or pics to prove me wrong??
