hi Ducati enthusiasts!

I found a Monster 696 from 2013 it has around only 1000 miles. before I go look at it I’d like your advice.

what worries me is that the handle bar apperantly turns all the way left and scratches the tank. I attached a photo.

is this normal?

Probably not. Check the steering stops located on the lower triple. They could be broken or bent, maybe from a fall.

As long as the rest of the bike is in good working order, not a deal breaker for me since the fairing easy to replace and I can live with a busted steering stop/fix it.

If you’re a perfectionist, maybe not

The stop on the frame will be bent. The stops on the lower yoke are adjustable and can usually take up the discrepancy. Don't be surprised if the bars are bent, too.
