2006 Ducati ST4S
The ST4S bristles with our best race-derived components combined with all-day riding comfort. The awesome Superbike 996 cc Desmoquattro engine ensures maximum power.
The ST family boasts the highest level of comfort in its category. The front fairing offers superior aerodynamic protection and when combined with the height-adjustable handlebars, adjustable brake and clutch levers, and advanced seat ergonomics the result is a bike that comfortably accommodates rider and passenger on even the longest of journeys.
Of course, a great engine can only reach its potential when matched with an equally advanced chassis and suspension.
Extend the versatility and comfort of your ST with our most popular Sport Touring accessories – colour matched saddlebags are INCLUDED with U.S. spec STs. Top bags and other accessories are available for the entire ST family, they will protect your gear from the weather and allow you to comfortably leave most full-face helmets in a safe place.
