Hello Ducati lovers,

I recently fell in love with the looks of the Monster and I'm doubting between an older 1200 with a decent amount of miles or a younger 821 with fewer miles.
1200 from 2014 with 27000 miles (43500 km)
821 from 2017 with 6000 miles (9700 km)
Price about the same.

What do you guys think?

Greetz,

Denis

The 1200 totally rips and 27,000 is not too many miles if maintained.
But maybe the 821 would suit you better. I have not tried one.
It is personal and subjective. How do you want to ride, anyway.

Me neither but from what I read online the 1200 rides better and has some advantages that the 821 hasn't.
On the other hand do I have to worry about the amount of miles the 1200 has?

I don't think so, mine passed 18,000 recently. I plan to keep it for some years. But don't take my word alone, poke around here and on .ms. Some folks have taken their bikes to very high miles. Like over 200,000. But you gotta maintain them. Like anything. And check up on common issues for the specific model you are looking at.
