The big ol' Ducati Monster 1000 offers a compelling mix of style and presence. It's not the most technically sophisticated machine ever built. And it does require expensive cam belt changes at an irritatingly regular two-year inverval. But for naked big bike cruising its certainly worth looking at.

The trademark Ducati steel trellis frame is a perfect way to show off the Monster M1000's huge hunk of V-twin engine. For its size its not the most powerful engine, but its more than adequate for the type of riding most Monster owners are looking for.

The chassis is complimented by quality Brembo brakes which are more than up to the task of bringin this bruiser up to a halt.

It might not have the same speed or reliability as some of the Japanese bikes on offer. But it does have bucket loads of character to fall back on.
