Wife is looking for her first bike after her test - anyone recommend or otherwise one if these please? Many thanks.

For something similar to a Monster in looks, consider a Triumph Street Triple. Got rid of mine today - very sad day for me!
 
Suzuki Sv 650 or the kawi ninja 650. Buy used.

Thanks for the thoughts. No matter what I say she'll go her own way I'm sure but I can but comment :). Cheers.

I'd agree with the SV650 as well (have never ridden the Ninja). Also maybe a ER6 (naked or faired) as a beginner mid bike, quite inexpensive too.

Get thee to the Ducati Monster site: http://www.ukmonster.co.uk/monster/index.php

They'll tell you & her everything you've always wanted to know about Monsters and more.

A friend of mine has had her 695 for eight years and loves it. She's yet to meet a non-satisfied Monster owner, and for a new rider suggests the 695 (some very low mileage, excellent specimens available for about £3k) or the 696. She uses hers for European touring, but also for the occasional London commute.
