Stunning bike! Congrats on the purchase Nadim!

Like akshay said, we'd all love to see a review (with lots of pics) on the Q7!

Cheers!

Wow! congratulations Nadeem, you sure are living many people's dream. And many compliments to your friend Mitsun for the pictures, h sure knows his stuff.
Nice short review gives a glimpse of the monster's inherent nature.

Well... I guess nothing else can compare with the feeling you have described. Only one who knows it will know it...

We need some videos ASAP, (the snaps are awesome, but..) ducati without the GROWL is like a Doberman with a tail and no bark!

Congrats on your latest acquisition, the Monster sure looks killer in red. Nice pictures too, just one thing I want to know, whether the Monster comes equiped with ABS or not.

ABS is an option.

Saw a red one while going to the Speedway this afternoon. Number was 1000.

Fantastic bike (monster ?) wow !!. And a fantastic straight from the heart report. There are times and moments when you need to splurge and just enjoy that moment and this bike is well worth that excitement. Have a ball man. Ride safe.

You are one lucky boy, please let us know the break up of cost, initial booking amount and OTR, also if you have taken a loan, that info will be very valuable. If I do take it, it will be through a loan. And do they have a service point at BLR? I hope I am not too late in a day. One more important question what is that tipped 796 over 696, do let us know. Since the spec sheet does not show much of a difference in performance, but I also do not know the cost difference too.

Not yet. The MD Ashish Chordia spoke about opening one in Feb. So, will have to wait and watch for a month atleast. As of now, outstation customers, Bangy included will be served by servicing personnel personally visiting them for servicing.

696 is no more being sold, right? Or am I missing something. About a few months ago, when I revceived their product line up there was no mention on 696. You can check the model comparision including spec of 696/796/1100 on the ducati website.

Apart from this, I know one Bangalorean who go this 796 registered in Tumkur because of registration woes in Bangalore. Even HDFC folks tell me that are some hassles involved. So, it pays to wait for an official dealership to open here.

696 is no more being sold, right? Or am I missing something. About a few months ago, when I revceived their product line up there was no mention on 696. You can check the model comparision including spec of 696/796/1100 on the ducati website.

I did check the website and they still have it in there line up in the Monster series. Here is the link:

@Zulfi - Am talking about the Indian product line up? Why don't you call up Precision motors Mumbai and check with them?

You are right, they do not have a dedicated website for India unlike HD, maybe they are not selling the 696 in India. Need to call them to get the final word out.
