New MCN October 1: Ducati Monster 1100 world first test

1 of 1

In this week's edition of Motorcycle News we bring you the world first test of Ducati's new Monster 1100.

MCN Road Tester Trevor Franklin has tested the bike and had this to say: "The new Ducati Monster 1100 lives for mountain roads and through town maneuverability. And considering it’s an air-cooled lump it is surprisingly tractable and punchy.”

To get the full review you'll have to get the October 1 edition of MCN.

Also in this copy we reveal the full details behind the new Suzuki GSX-R1000 and the SV650-based Suzuki Gladius, which looks set to replace the current naked SV650, with the SV50S continuing in the range.
