comparing monster vs bmw rninet

Does anyone have any insight or a comparison of the two bikes, do you consider these bikes in the same class?

The only people that consider a BMW in the same class as a Ducati are BMW owners. They're wrong, by the way.

No, not exactly. BMW targets "retro" customers with the RnineT, while Ducati targets those who want a contemporary naked bike. A lot of the differences are related to the "looks", but BMW didn't put its latest flat twin in the RnineT; they used the old motor.

Have you tossed a leg over one? They are massive and heavy. It didn't feel nearly as compact as the Monster. I wouldn't call them comparable at all.

Massive in what way? I'm ~6'4", and I like the idea of adding a "vintage" looking bike to my garage. I like the Triumph Thruxton but I feel (and look) like a gorilla on a bike that size!

It is taller and longer for sure but you are a tall guy. At 5'9" my perspective would be different indeed. Still a fair fit heavier though as well if that matters to you.
