If you’re look­ing for a sim­ple and at­trac­tive new road­ster, they don’t come with much more of ei­ther than this – the new Mon­ster 797. It’s great to have an air-cooled two-valve en­gine back in a Mon­ster pack­age again, and the 803cc Des­modue L-twin boasts 75bhp, 50.8ftlb torque, and a slip­per clutch, while there’s also the ex­cel­lent Bosch 9.1MP ABS mod­ule and Brembo M4.32 calipers to take care of slow­ing it all down again. Add a tubu­lar steel trel­lis frame, 16.5-litre steel tank, wide bars and a full LCD dash, and the 797 looks very at­trac­tive in­deed.
