– 2007 Ducati Monster S4R Testastretta

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 develops and increases in power going from 117 Hp of the previous engine, to the 130 Hp of the Testastretta, maintaining its’ very important role in the SR family: its two sided mufflers, the aluminium trellis single-sided swingarm, the small fairing, the exclusive paint schemes, the high quality suspensions, joined together with the powerful low sump Testastretta engine, is a milestone in the development of the Monster S4R Testastretta. A bike that, in the new Ducati 2007 range, has a very important role, catching the attention of the most exigent 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 MY ’07, has, like the S4RS, the prestigious Brembo front brake system too. The front has now a prettier look thanks to the new front fork bottom end, purposely created to fit the Brembo radial callipers. 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 colour 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 bike will be available in the early October.

 

NEW FOR 2007

S4R gets more power, less weight and a new front end for 2007

Cupertino, CA – When first introduced in 2002, the Ducati S4R set the highest performance standard for a modern naked bike. The success of this model led to the birth of an entire Ducati Monster SR range, including the unprecedented new S4Rs, which was highly anticipated and introduced to the public last year.

For 2007, Ducati North America proudly announces a brand new version of the Monster S4R Testastretta, powered by the same Testastretta deep sump L-twin engine that can be found as standard equipment in the 999 Superbike and winning Superbike races around the world.

The performance of the 2007 Monster S4R Testastretta is impressive: the motor boasts a 23 HP gain over its predecessor, increasing from 117 HP to a total of 130 HP. The front end has been redesigned, with radial mount Brembo calipers and fully adjustable inverted Showa forks. The rear suspension boasts a fully adjustable Sachs shock with integrated reservoir and full rear ride height adjustability. In addition, the motorcycle has shed almost 10 pounds of dry weight, which all combine to make the S4R Testastretta an incredibly versatile and agile street fighter.

The S4R Testastretta has the traditional clean lines that define the Monster family, and retains the twin vertically stacked shotgun style silencers and aluminum alloy single-sided swing-arm. New for 2007 are Y-shaped 5 spoke rims that improve the rigidity/weight ratio and reduce unsprung weight, which result in better handling. The motorcycle is available in a stunning titanium/red color scheme that is unique to this model.

The 2007 Monster S4R Testastretta is available now in dealerships and has a MSRP of $12,995 USD ($15,995 CND).
