disappointed

wow. the new monster 696 is, je ne sais quoi... fugly.

the beauty of the 695 and predecessors was the "industrial italian" look, and attempting to bring organic "flow" to the design... when i free associate, the words poop, gimmick, plastic, etc. come to mind.

i suppose i was just expecting a more incremental (read: classic) design step than this.

media quotes

from CW: the monster 696 will be priced "...10-15 percent higher than the $7995 Monster 695, which will still be sold in 2008."

"[ducati] is debt-free as of last quarter."
