2008 Ducati Monster S2R 1000
SR ROAD SAVVY AND 1000 POWER
The Monster Monster S2R 1000 is a blend of sport and character – the power of the 1000 Dual Spark engine combines with the Ducati Trellis frame and advanced suspension to pack punch and confidence into every corner. The Monster S2R 1000 is the ideal choice for anyone who wants the ‘mean’ look of the SR series with Desmo2 power and the simple beauty of an air-cooled engine.
Fire-up our most powerful air-cooled Monster and feel the potent 95hp, high torque, Desmo2 1000 engine at your command. The 1000 DS engine was developed with the specific objectives of increased broad, linear power and increased efficiency, and the result is ideal for the Monster S2R 1000. The Dual Spark solution gives a more efficient combustion and boosts power, especially at low and medium rpm, and when combined with advanced fuel injection and computer engine control, the 1000 DS never fails to thrill.
The upside-down Showa forks and ZF Sachs rear shock ensure confident road holding and are adjustable, allowing you to set up the bike to suit your personal riding style or for when you add a passenger. The high performance Brembo brake system provides the finishing touch to the biggest air-cooled Monster.
