EXHILARATING POWER AND SUPERIOR HANDLING

With the choice of S4R, you step up to Testastretta performance and race-worthy handling. The S4R Testastretta engine’s world-beating Superbike power and technology, and a Superbike-derived chassis featuring the lightweight Trellis frame combine in an exhilarating marriage of power and handling.

The liquid-cooled, 4-valve per cylinder, 998 Testastretta L-Twin engine delivers an incredible 130 hp and arm-yanking torque, making every twist of the throttle exciting.

Impressive, race-like ground clearance enables extreme lean angles to exploit the full capabilities of the S4R, a performance thoroughbred created to fully experience the thrills of sports riding.
