Upgrade Time!

Hello!
After 2 years on the 800, it's time to upgrade. The Icon was great - especially outfitted with the FT bar, Rizoma bar end mirrors, EvoTech hand controls, and Dart FlyScreen. But now, it's time for bigger and better. What are your thoughts? 1100? Monster 1200?

I have my 800 Icon for almost 2 years and over 4k miles. Don't see the need to spend more money on anything new. It runs great. Looks good. Fun to ride and best of all, it is paid for. With that said, if I had all kinds of money to throw around...Maybe a Monster 1200. Don't think the 1100 would give me anything really significant over and above my 800.

I have added the usual stuff to my bike; Comp Werks exhaust, handlebars, bar-end mirrors, tail tidy and scrambler side bags.

Your money...whatever makes your happy!

The 1100 Has more features and a bigger engine obviously. You’ll have to decide if it’s worth the extra cost or not . I’ve been debating the same thing . I was thinking of keeping the scrambler and adding a monster . I might have a Ducati addiction starting ! Haha

the 1100 has more features like said above - the gauge looks appealing, and diff riding modes, sure. However remember, that stuff sells bikes, it barely makes a difference when riding, and eventually (think analog manual tran cars) you'll prefer how basic the 803 is

Garage
Two good options

both great options, the 1100 a little more posh, the Monster a bit more sporty. I agree with other post though. I don't see enough to jump ship for the 1100. A little bit more power and a lot more weight. but it's whatever makes you happy when you twist that throttle and greet it in the garage. let us know what you end up getting.

In all honesty, if you've experienced/loved the 800, why not try a different bike all together? Maybe a Yamaha XSR900 (125 horsepower)? Maybe a Indian or Harley? If you're set on Ducati, maybe a Diavel? Just my thoughts. I personally would not buy a 1100 Scrambler. Not enough of a difference in power from the 800 and it's heavier.
