On June 3rd, 2006 I picked up my brand new 2006/2007 Ducati Monster S4Rs Testastretta, and discovered a masterpiece. The incomparable style, performance, and design of the S4Rs help give the ride of a lifetime. While this bike is not for beginners, once you get a Ducati Monster S4Rs Testastretta, you’ll never go back. If you’re an experienced rider looking for the all around package in a street fighter motorcycle, you won’t find better than the Ducati Monster S4Rs Testastretta. Why is this bike exceptional and superior to most? Here are just some of the answers to that question:
The Ducati Monster S4Rs Testastretta has the classic naked design of Ducati’s other Monster road bikes (Naked referring to the stripped-down look). The S4RS is characterised by a red frame and black-painted swingarm, although you do have 3 choices of color designs (I chose black and grey). Also notable are the evolved front end, derived from the 999 series, and the Y spoke wheels that underscore the concept of the quintessential stripped Superbike. Many of the details on the Monster S4Rs are taken directly from the Ducati race division: the triangular oil cooler and the large number of carbon fibre parts, including the silencers cover, the front mudguard, the timing belt covers and the exhaust pipe heat shield.
Experienced riders who expect only the best in terms of technology certainly get it with the legendary engine on the Ductati Monster S4Rs Testastretta. And the maximum technological expression of Ducati genius? The engine on the S4Rs Testastretta is an L-twin able to counter the well-documented power of its rival four cylinder units. Get ready for a thrill when you turn that ignition key. This engine sports a piston stroke of 63.5 mm and a bore of 100 mm: the short stroke limits average piston speed to allow increased RPM’s and improve overall reliability. The oil pump, exclusive to Ducati, features a feeding system built into the deep sump crankcase. This translates to an even oil flow rate during the most dramatic acceleration and braking, or when rounding a tight corner. The technology doesn’t end there. Ducati has also figured out how to create a reduced angle between intake and exhaust valves. The result is a clean, tight combustion chamber that is highly efficient, with a catalytic converter that keeps the emissions low. The secret to all this is the flat-crown pistons. The special design of the heads, together with the cutting-edge electronic engine control system, guarantees optimal combustion throughout the rev range. All this makes for unrivaled power delivery when you’re aboard the Ducati Monster S4Rs Testastretta.
Running gear and chassis add to the desirability of the Ducati Monster S4Rs Testastretta, with fully adjustable Ohlins suspension at both ends. Complemented by Y-shaped spoke rims, the weight ratio compared to other wheels is much better on the Testastretta. This also lends itself to much better handling of the Testastretta. 320 mm twin disc Brembo brakes on the front have radial-mounted calipers with four pistons and four pads.
So, now you’ve heard the technical reasons why your next motorcycle purchase should be a Ducati Monster S4Rs Testastretta. What’s the bottom line, in plain English? That’s easy. The Ducati Monster S4Rs Testastretta is a moving work of art. Its fluidity, handling, and performance are simply unparalleled. No other motorcycle can compete with any facet of the Testastretta.
