    It's been a while since I rode the Monster, but I recall it being a life-size hooligan roller skate. If you are that guy, get it!

    If you're not, get the Scrambler

    Would a Monster be different in regards to engine heat?

    The 821 monster being water cooled should run cooler than the air cooled scrambler which I personally find puts out a lot to of heat, I've also had three water cooled monsters the last one did get extremely hot whilst on holiday in Italy two years ago so I suppose it depends on the conditions.
    I think if I was looking at purchasing a new monster I'd wait for the new air cooled monster that should be arriving in showrooms, demo it along with the scrambler and 821 and then deside.

    Scrambler looks better, Monster 821 is better value for money. But, if value for money meant everything you wouldn't look for a Ducati, would you?

    I love the 821. Did about 500 miles on one around Cornwall. different league. Depends what your rides will consist of. Personally, I'm waiting for the 765 Street Triple....

    Like the look and specs but not riding position of the 821. The Scrambler is just that much better for me even with original oem handlebars
