Is Ducati's new 1198 Monster the perfect road bike?

Ducati is just months away from unleashing the most powerful Monster ever produced. Exclusive photographs of the new 2014 model clearly show it’s powered by Ducati’s 1198cc water-cooled V-twin motor, likely to deliver over 150bhp. But is 150bhp too much power for a naked bike? Will it make the Ducati the perfect bike, or an unrideable beast?

The BMW K1300R

has more than 150 BHP, so it's not exactly moving the game on for the Ducati to have the same.

Does this mean the Streetfighter is for the chop?

i would

Assume that if this monster goes into production they'll probably discontinue the street fighter S. I cant see them selling that many streetfighters anyway because they're quite expensive and the smaller one looks the same, goes well and is a hell of a lot cheaper. Hopefully this 1198 monster will be cheaper then the streetfighter

Not if the tank is as pitiful as the current models

The current Monster 1100 has a 13.5ltr tank. That is properly pathetic for a bike that probably doesn't have the best fuel consumption figures in the world. If this one is the same then you'll know for sure this is not an attempt at making a bike for the road, more making one for the Milan café.

power

150 bhp seems a lot but KTM are putting out a new Superduke with 180, BMW are looking at the 1000rr with flat bars, and already have the K1300r,  I hope triumph takes note as the Speed tripple is getting on and it seems we have a insatiable appetite for horses, I just hope its not all in the last 10% of the rev range, Also please could we have realistic size fuel tanks , as Zoiks say how far can you go on 13-5lts

Nice to have excess berries and not need them, than to need more berries and not have them. Cant see the problem with having 'too much' power.
