MCN, 02 November 2011 16:23

This Monster-powered, featherweight racer is the M4 One Shot, the latest beauty from Bologna-based bike builders NCR.

Staff bikes: Ducati Monster 1100 Evo - The modern cafe racer

Marc Abbott, 25 August 2011 16:44

Over the months that I've owned the Monster, many have asked me "What's it like?" My default answer is "A real, good, honest motorcycle".
