Ducati Announces the Ducati Monster S4R Testastretta
Official Press Release – The Monster 2007 range is now bigger and better with the new S4R Testastretta.
This new bike gains the famous 130 HP Testastretta low sump L-twin engine, previously mounted only on the top version S4Rs Testastretta.
Founder of the SR family, this bike takes upon a very important role, coming up alongside the S4R s Testastretta which represents the current performance and equipment apotheosis.
The S4R has an increase in power from the S4R, from 117 HP of the previous engine to the 130 HP of the Testastretta, maintaining its very important role in the SR family.
The S4R Testastretta includes the two-sided mufflers, the aluminium trellis single-sided swingarm, the small fairing, the exclusive paint schemes and the high quality suspension from the S4R. This has been joined with the powerful low sump Testastretta engine, which is a milestone in the development of the Monster S4R Testastretta.
This is a motorcycle that has a very important role in the new Ducati 2007 range, catching the attention of the most performance-oriented “ducatista”.
The S4R Testastretta is different from the “S” version due to the suspension. The front forks are now fully adjustable upside- down Showa’s, giving the customer the possibility of a perfectly balanced bike.
The rear is fully adjustable with piggy back shock absorbers by Sachs, allowing modification of suspension settings. The height of the rear of the bike is adjustable too by the modification of the length of the push rod.
Whilst respecting the previous version, the S4R Testastretta has the prestigious Brembo front brake system, like the S4RS. The front has now a prettier look thanks to the new front fork bottom end, purposely created to fit the Brembo radial calipers.
The new S4R Testastretta is now available in two new colour schemes: Titanium with central black stripe, and in the traditional Ducati red with central white stripe.
Both color versions have the red frame with the black painted swingarm, just like the new Showa front fork bottom end. A lot of the other components are black painted: the headlamp support, the steering plates, the risers, the footrests and the water cooler side covers.
The motorcycle will be available in the early October.
All 2007 Ducati models require less frequent service, less parts and labor during each service and, as a result, greatly reduced scheduled maintenance costs – by as much as 50%
