Motorcycle insurance bargains: Ducati Monster 695

Motorcycle insurance costs are an important consideration for any bike buyer. That's why MCN is highlighting some of the best cheap-to-insure motorcycles out there. This time it's the Ducati Monster 695.          

Insurance group: 9
Used price: £2,900-£4,000
Engine: 695cc 4v V-twin, 6 gears
Power: 73bhp
Top speed: 125mph
Weight: 168kg     

The small capacity monsters have always been the cheapest way into the glamorous world of Ducati ownership. Cheaper than the 696 and faster than the 620, the Monster 695 is a great compromise for potential Ducatistis with an eye for value - especially since it's only group 9 insurance.      

The 695 isn't as budget as some of the earlier monsters - it has twin front discs, decent clocks (for it's day) and nice details. The paint is deep and glossy and on the black model you get matching black mirrors, levers and footrest hangers.

The Ducati Monster 695 succeeds in being both novice-friendly and genuinely versatile and practical, in having both style and usable performance but, most of all, in being something of a bargain that doesn't look, or perform like, the poor relation of the Ducati range.
