4. Ducati Monster 1100

Ducati Monster 1100 Wheelie

The biggest Monster is one of my favorite motorcycles. It boasts delicious Italian style with a lovely trellis frame and single-sided swingarm, a minimalist design ethos, a relatively upright riding position and, most important to our discussion here, a grunty and responsive V-Twin engine.

Although relatively low-tech, being cooled by air rather than liquid and breathing through just two valves per cylinder, the M11’s power output is able to be finely controlled to deliver exactly what a right wrist is asking for.
