Hey guys! I love the naked ducati bike look and am possibly going to be purchasing one in the next day. I just had a quick question to start off. The bike I am looking at is a 2011 ducati monster 696 with roughly 4k miles. The only thing is when I lookup the vin (at multiple places) it keeps coming back as a 695cc engine? Is this normal or could the engine of been swapped from a previous 695 or even with it being 696cc'es do they show-up as 695 in vin reports? Sorry if this is a noob question... er I kinda am a noob.

Any tips when checking out, and possibly purchasing, my first ducati monster 696 would be awesome. Thank you guys and if this bike doesnt workout i know i will find one in the future!

Don't take this as an absolute truth, but numbers sometimes lie. My 749 is really a 748cc engine. It's just that they already used the 748 name and needed something else for the new model. Hence, 749. Yours might be the same situation.
