I have had a monster 750 since 98 and I ready to buy a new bike. I have to admitt I like the multi a lot but I would like to know how it handles and why you bought one and does it come in black? Thanks Dave

It handles great - I haven't even changed the suspension settings yet - so I expect it may get even better when I do.


And there is a black one available


It all depends what sort of riding you do - It will suit most types of journey and I use it around town - I haven't yet found anything that I want another bike for.

Very Happy

Goes most well; lots of suspension adjustability to suit you if you are less than about 95 kg..
Comfortable; some don't like the seat, but the sitting posn is good. I find monster pegs are too high for my long-term comfort.
Very flickable.
Attracts fav comments whenever I stop.
The things wrong or 'wrong' with it: no dirt ability (no mudguards, alloy rims), fuel gauge is crap, high-beam is crap, needs new pipes. Mine needs more spring, 'cos I'm not less than 95 kg.
That's about it. Go buy one, ride the wheels off it. You won't be disappointed.

Richard
