It's the lone year when they brought the 600 (not the 620) to the states. It's carbed (620s are fuel injected), underpowered and generally not worth the time or money. Because the 600 is a weird model year, parts are difficult to find and so you end up paying OEM prices to replace stuff. The '02 620 is a significant step up in quality, frame, parts accessibility, pretty much everything.

I wouldn't spend the money on one. For the $, I'd either try to get an older 750 or a 620.

Though this does not reflect local Bay Area prices, you should get an idea of the market here: http://ducatimonsterforum.org/index.php?board=9.0

FWIW, last year's 620 made more power than my 97 M900. It's not always about power.

Last year's 620 wasn't a 620. It was a 695. It's wouldn't be *that* surprising to find that a new fuel injected 700cc bike makes more power than your 12 year old 900cc. That said, you should also be aware that last year's bike measure hp at the crank, whereas the numbers for your 900 are at the rear wheel. Ducati changed how they measure HP in '04 or '05 or somewhere around there. OTOH, a 620ie ('02-05) and an older carbed 750 (97-01) are close enough to each other in terms of power. Not the same, but close enough.

But that wasn't my point. The 2001 600 is just not enough bike (power, frame, seat height (29in), single front disk, difficulty w/ parts, etc) to justify the extra cost involved in buying a Duc.

The whole single front disc applied to quite a few more years than that 620. And my mistake on the 695, I forgot about that. However I was really basing my opinion of it off of me riding it. The 695 was considerably more powerful.

I'd be interested in the responses to that. I think it probably depends on your riding style and what you plan on doing with the Monster.

I dont have ANY complaints about the single disc up front but if its that big a deal, you can buy a second caliper/rotor & associated brake line for $150-$250 in good condition used off ebay, maybe cheaper if your patient & wait for a deal.

edit: just dont get ripped off & buy one of those taiwanese brambo calipers lol

So?

The sixth cog on my 900 doesn't make all that much of a difference in real world driving which is (according to a PM from him) all the OP really wants this Monster for.

My monster S2R1000 has 6 gears. Even after going down 1 tooth in front, 6th gear still is only useful if I'm doing 80mph, so a 6th gear may not be necessary.
