$1500 Streetbike Surgery: 2006 Ducati Monster 620

Making a best-seller even better

By Brian Catterson, Photography by Kevin Wing

In our January 2007 issue's "MC Garage" section, we featured an inexpensive "hop-up" of the Ducati that was until recently the Italian company's best-selling model: the Monster 620. Space constraints prohibited us from running a full parts list, but we promised to post it online. Here, then, is where you can find all the items mentioned in that article.
