Question about Ducati Monster 620 Motorcycles
My 2003 Monster 620 is my first bike of more than 250cc capacity ... and I love it, but I still don't really feel I've figured out the most appropriate rev range to sit within if I'm just cruising along in the traffic. Often on my way home from work the traffic will be moving at about 75kph and the bike labours in 4th but sounds a bit like it's screaming in 3rd. I'm obviously aware that it's better to rev a bit high rather than labour the engine. Also, once I'm in 4th or 5th then it sounds really happy just tooling along at 5,000 rpm or higher. I'm trying to be a bit less mathematical about it all and just go by the sound more but it's still a bit touch-and-go getting the gears to mesh smoothly. Do I just need to chill out and get more practice or is there a rev range that the bike really likes to use for extended periods at low to medium speeds?
For cruising get your bike up to +- 4500 / 5500 rpm and it wil ride super easy
