Ducati’s Monster is a classic and the newly designed 696+ continues the dynasty. It’s light at 186kg has a low seat height of 770mm and makes 80bhp, all ideal qualities for shorties and newbies alike. Even though it’s the entry level Monster it still comes with a slipper clutch, Brembo radial brakes and the Ducati name on the tank for bragging rights. Ducati offer a large range of stylish “Logomania” panels so you can easily swap the original bodywork and give your Monster a unique look.

If you’re looking for an alternative to the popular Monster, then BMW's F800R is well worth a look. With a seat height of 775mm and weight of 202kg the Bavarian bike is perfectly aimed at its rivals. Its parallel-twin engine produces 87bhp and manages an incredible 190 miles on its 16 litre tank, making it very frugal. With a list of optional extras and solid build quality you can’t go wrong. Looks great in their (optional extra) Motorsport colours.
