Monster 620

Are these selling well? There are so many entries in the class. I suppose the Italian bike gurus on a budget can enter the market for about $7K, but the Monster just looks so bland to me.

I don't know about the little Monster, but the bigger one is a nice bike. Personally, if I was going to buy one, I would get the 900... My buddy has a couple Monster 900's and he takes me off the line on my CBR600 F3, but I catch him in a hurry once I get it spun up. I can't imagine what the 600 must be like. It's got to be a bit of a dog...

Although, probably a good bike to learn on.

For that reason, alone, it's a good bike. I just don't care for the nekkid styling.

That's another reason to go with the Monster 900. If you are going to go for that street fighter look, you should really have something to back it up, IMHO.

The monster 620ie is the best selling bike in Europe. My girlfriend has one. It's a positively great bike. It has better suspenders and brakes than most japanese bikes, and is an all around great package. The handling is awesome, and it is a whole lot of fun around town.

The Matrix Monster or 998 is nothing but paint.
Expect to pay a little more for it.

I think the Monster is the best buy for the buck but, if you wont to keep up with those 6's you will have to go for the 900's up.
If you wont to best them go Monster S4R.
