I have been riding Ducati Monsters for 16 years and would classify them as standards. I am 5 feet 5 inches and only have a slight forward lean as I sit on my Monster 1100 EVO. A sport position to me is the position you would have on a sportbike like a Suzuki GXS-R or a Ducati Panigale, with clip-on bars and much more forward lean.

I am 68 years old and find the more erect position on the Monster more appropriate for my arthritic neck and bad back. It also takes some of the weight off my back and puts it on my arms, making it more comfortable over long distances than the upright cruiser position. I often do several thousand mile tours on my Monster.

I prefer the standard posture. I could ride more than 500 miles a day easy. Just depends what type riding you want to do, or have to do sometimes.

Well written descriptions.

The comment for the sports bike position - "the riding position is often cramped, which may be difficult to sustain for more than a couple of hours." In the picture the rider is dropping her stomach into the tank, the back should be straight as in the other position, not sagged.

In the correct position the rider should have no trouble at all riding long distances, standing on the pegs, also gives you a break.
