Ducati M900/1000 Monster (1993-2008)
The original Monster’s creation as Miguel Galluzzi/massimo Bordi’s ‘parts-bin special’ (frame is modified 888, engine 900SS, front end 750SS etc) is well-known. Less so is the fact the funky roadster effectively rescued Ducati. Its simple build saved development costs and its instant appeal spawned a whole family. What you’ll pay today £2400-£3400 for a 900 and rising. But should you? Raw, but still stylish and fun.
