For the price, the sound and looks are outstanding. I thought I would take the baffles out when I ordered them, but they came with the baffles in, so I figured I would try it that way first. I loved the sound, very deep and throaty, but not TOO loud. I decided to keep the DB killers in. The only thing that I noticed with mine is that they squeeze up against the license plate (I have a fender eliminator and it happens to sit at the exact level of the muffler end caps). Other than that, I would highly recommend these.

As many Ducati 696 owners know, the stock seat is great, except that it slopes forward making it uncomfortable and annoying to ride with. This seat is very different. It sits flat from front to back, so no more "sliding" toward the tank. It's comfortable because of the way it's shaped, but it does have limited padding, so it's definitely not soft and cushy. I like the seat a lot and I'm glad I purchased it, but it's pretty expensive for what it is.

These are quality bar end mirrors, and I love the way the style matches the Ducati Monster lines. Vision and clarity is outstanding. They are too pricey for mirrors, but I still dished out the money for a pair, so who am I too complain ;-)

Very comfortable grips and they do help with vibration absorption. Soft and grippy with bare hands or gloves. I hope they keep their "gel" feel on the outside for a long time, but only time will tell. If you want comfortable grips that help with vibration absorption, I would definitely recommend these.
