Du­cati Mon­ster 696 (2008-2012)

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Mcn garage -

Orig­i­nal Mon­ster wasn’t com­pletely up­dated un­til 2008 – first with the en­trylevel 696, later with the full-bore 1100. While re­tain­ing the orig­i­nal’s ‘runty’ spirit, both fea­tured all-new chas­sis, ful­lyre­worked air-cooled two-valve mo­tors and new clocks, bodywork and more. Cheaper 696 had more ba­sic spec and 67bhp but han­dling and per­for­mance were both im­proved over the old model. What you’ll pay to­day £4000-£6000. But should you? Bril­liantly af­ford­able.
