Du­cati Mon­ster

1993-present

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

The 900SS stripped of its body­work and given sexy naked styling proved a gamechanger, and has been built in sizes from 600cc to 1200cc. Af­ter­mar­ket parts? Thou­sands. Car­bon this, stain­less that, an­odised the other, and more red bits than a Costa del Sol beach. Ter­mignoni pipes are al­most com­pul­sory and are the quick­est way to lib­er­ate horse­power. Lat­est ones are the best per­form­ers; early 900s are a bit tired now. The air-cooled mod­els still look the best and are way cheaper to run. The 600/620 is cheap­est, and the best way into Du­catis with lit­tle fi­nan­cial risk.

What you’ll pay now £1000£9000. We’d go for an in­jected 796. But should you? No naked bike is as cool.
