Today's recommendation is the above Monster 1200S. For us the model has character, looks good and is modern, but still very much a Monster.

Seller says

"This super stylish brute of a bike is serious fun and definitely one to create a bit of envy amongst your mates. The 1200s being the daddy of the monster family and with the Ohlins,Brembos, latest TFT dash and rider modes really is a trick piece of kit, that engine is just superb it pulls from nothing and just keeps going, back road play thing or just plain pose its happy everywhere, the monster S is just an extremely nice looking bike an uses all the best trick parts and the frame and swing arm are a work of art and just oozes cool, and has that superb Ducati Twin feel which can fair scream if required and the engine note is to die for, extremely light and handles well like it’s on rails , Only covered 6k miles with full Ducati history. Truly stunning piece of Italian exotica there you have it in a nutshell ,ready to be made use of by a new owner . Truly a one off at this price ,with this superb bike and its fitted extras."

MCN says

"The new liquid-cooled engine is much better than the old bikes. There’s loads of mid-range and low-down grunt, and it sounds fantastic for a standard bike. The handling on the S model is excellent, just as happy on road or track, and light and easy to ride. Yes there are a few niggles, a lack of room for feet if you ride on your toes could become annoying, and some would argue there’s too much cooling and piping on show. But this is the best Monster Ducati has ever made."
