Top 5 'Maxi' scooters

Maxi' or 'super' scooters, as they're sometimes called, are an increasingly popular modern phenomena - larger engined, luxury scooters that, while still easy (ish) around town and with all the practicality (if not more) of traditional scooters (being easy to ride around town, relatively clean and with plenty of luggage space) also have the virtue of being capable of motorway speeds for longer distance commuting.

Ducati Monster 1200 Naked (2014 - ) review

Fully-updated big Monster was also, controversially, the first liquid-cooled version. It might have lost some of the original’s purity and simplicity but its raw, roadster spirit survives and, with 145bhp and available in three specs, it’s better than ever.
