Agreed, but times are changing. Too much plastic for my taste.

The new monster makes the S4RS show it's age. It looks to me like there is LESS plastic than the S4RS and they did a much better job of cleaning up the design, hiding hoses etc.

I find it quite amazing that Ducati can't make a naked bike, thats a little lighter.

Its almost 20kg heavier than an 1199S

Is it just me?

I'm kinda digging the new monster. I bet it doesn't have any heat issues either. I'm still mad at them for dropping the big SF though.
