Ducati Monster 2021

Ducati Monster 2021

Ducati has done a good job with the Monster. On paper, you quickly realise that Ducati was able to save a few costs on the equipment. But in the saddle, riding pleasure dominates. Pure joie de vivre spreads out when the agile machine waggles heart-warmingly through the radii. The charismatic V2 rolls casually and perfectly out of the bends.

Powerful V2 engine

lots of power from low revs

comprehensive electronics package

quickshifter as standard

neutral handling

great combination of riding fun and practicality.

Chassis could do with a little more finesse in this price range.
