The Learner Legal Monster 659 is back!
The wait is over, Ducati Australia New Zealand is very excited to announce the arrival of the Monster 659, produced exclusively for the Australian and New Zealand markets and accessible to all learner riders under the Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme (LAMS).
The all-new 659 is based on the Monster 797, and shares some of the same key features, benefits and levels of safety, one of which is ABS as standard. The new M659 will also offer the key elements of its predecessor; lightweight, easy handling and rider friendly V-Twin power delivery. 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.
Essential Ducati detailing, high quality and safety is evident throughout the 659 design as with all Ducati models, as is the styling, renowned by the already well established and iconic naked Monster family.
