2010 Ducati Monster 696 | ‘Real-Time’

Weekly Podcast

The Motorcycle Radio Network returns from a couple of weeks off for the holidays to discuss the 2010 Ducati Monster 696, the top five motorcycle industry news items of 2009 and the opening round of the 2010 Supercross Championship happening in Anaheim.

Bill and Todd join Mike ‘live’ while he is riding out to the Monster Energy Drink Supercross races in Anaheim. Mike puts the least expensive of all 2010 Ducati models through a ‘real-time’ road test. In the process, we find out that the new Ducati 696 Monster may be short on cost, but it still has the look, feel and draw that Italy’s most famous brand is known for.

Here is a link to the podcast of the first ‘real-time’ road test of 2010 Ducati Monster 696. The Ducati 696 review starts about a third of the way into the live radio show and podcast.

Speaking of the 2010 Anaheim 1 Supercross race, UltimateMotorCycling.com didn’t just take the Ducati Monster, they brought the same camera that gave us the awesome photos and interview with Travis Pastrana just prior to the Red Bull No Limits New Year’s Eve Subaru Rally Car Jump.

Thanks for listening to radio show this week. Next week we’ll be back with a very special guest, so join us Saturday night at 9PM Eastern, 6PM Pacific.
