New Ducati Monster 659 for Australian Learner Riders


Ducati Australia has announced a new capacity Monster being introduced exclusively for the Australian market and the Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme (LAMs).

The new Monster 659 is based on the Monster 696 and shares all the same key features and benefits that has made the 696 a big hit with many riders including; lightweight, easy handling, low seat height and rider friendly V-Twin power delivery.


“Ducati has produced the new Monster 659 specifically for our market as we want as many Australian Learner rides as possible to have the opportunity to ride a new Ducati” said Warren Lee, CEO – Ducati Australia. “The 659 is based on the 696, already a very popular model with younger, female and less experienced riders, so it was the ideal basis for our LAMs model.”

As with all new Ducati motorcycles in Australia, the Monster 659 is covered by a 2-Year Unlimited Kilometer Warranty and 24 Roadside and Emergency Assist. So unlike an older or import model, Learner riders can ride the 659 with the absolute confidence and reassurance of a new Ducati and support should it ever be required.

The Monster 659 is expected to arrive and be on sale from early June with an introductory RRP of $12,990 plus Dealer and Statutory Charges. From late July / early August the Monster 659 with ABS is anticipated to arrive and will have an RRP of $13,990 plus Dealer and Statutory Charges.

Learner Rider can contact their closest Authorised Ducati Dealer for more information or purchase enquires.
