Bookdwarf Has A New Toy

Bookdwarf just got a new dangerous, expensive toy:

It’s a Ducati Monster 750 with about 9000 miles on it; my bike (Suzuki SV650) is essentially the same style, only made in Japan. The style was more or less invented by Ducati, though, which makes Megan’s The Original. Still, whenever anyone thinks about buying a bike in that class, they end up comparing the Ducati Monster and the Suzuki SV. They’re only slightly different in terms of engine size, handling (Ducati’s got a slight edge there), power (Suzuki wins that by about 5-10 HP), seat height, weight, and even styling … the major difference is brand loyalty: people will pay extra for that Italian machine.
