Motorcycle insurance bargains: Ducati Multistrada 620

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 Multistrada 620.              

Insurance group: 11
Engine: 618cc 4v V-twin, 6 gears 
Power: 63bhp
Top speed: 125mph
Weight: 183kg                 

The Ducati Multistrada 620 is more of an ‘all-rounder’ motorcycle to the 620 Monsters’ ‘roadster’. The looks are an acquired taste and it’s not got a whole lot up top in the power department but the Ducati Mulitstrada 620 is a good, practical first big motorcycle. Plus it's only group11 to insure.                    

The Ducati Multistrada 620 is revvy and fun, there’s plenty of low down and midrange power but the top end’s breathless. The Ducati Multistrada has a low(ish), comfy seat, wide bars and effective screen combined with good brakes and handling, which makes for an enjoyable ride. There’s a slipper clutch to avoid gut-wrenching, slippery down changes and the gearbox is nice and slick. It's more than comfortable enough for long journeys, the limit is the tank range.

The Ducati Multistrada 620 is nicely finished but for the price you’d at least expect a fuel gauge (rather than just a warning light). Sachs rear shock, Marzocchi forks and Brembo calipers are all good and there’s an impressive list of aftermarket parts available.
