Video Commute - 2017 Ducati Monster 1200 S: Lost in Monaco

Ducati’s 2017 Monster 1200 S in Monte Carlo.

It's no secret we're always trying to get our staff to work a little harder. Especially the ones that always seem to have too much to say. "Write it down!" the boss yells, exasperated. Senior Editor Zack Courts is a classic case, always arriving to office after his commute with a bunch of opinions about the bike he's riding. Too much this, not enough that, and occasionally has some decent insights that we thought might help consumers or entertain enthusiasts. So we strapped a camera and microphone to the side of his helmet and told him to turn it on from time to time.

This time, he switched on the camera after a day of riding Ducati's 2017 Monster 1200 S in the south of France (see Zack's First Ride review here), just as he was descending into Monaco. Ride along as he discusses the Monster's 2017 updates, from electronics, to suspension, to the updated 1,198cc V-twin. Got a different bike you would like to see discussed? Let us know and we'll send him home on that one next, when he returns to typical commuting duties.
