With Ducati’s Testastretta 999 cubic centimeter engine that redlined at 10,500 rpm, putting down 130 hp at 9,500rpm and 77 ft-lbs of torque at 7,500rpm. Also with top grade components such as 43mm inverted Öhlins forks with low-friction titanium nitride coating, Öhlins monoshock, aluminum single-sided swing-arm, four-pot Brembo P34 brakes with dual 320mm discs, and forged ten-arm alloy Marchesini rims. Equipped with a dry clutch and open anodized cover, and all hoses appear to have been replaced by Samco Sport hoses.
In 2008 Ducati released what they would consider the ultimate iteration of the Monster. They would make only 400 Tricolore edition S4R S’s — 250 of which were sent here to the US. Adorned in the classic Italian flag livery, the S4R S Tricolore also featured carbon fiber front fender, radiator cover, side-covers, cam belt covers. Each of the 400 units also came with an individualized number plate. This is #20. It has been equipped with a carbon fiber and titanium system that exits near the rear fender on each side made by Desmoworld. Many aftermarket upgrades have been made including handlebar, mirrors, levers by Pazzo and billet reservoirs by Rizoma. With a Sargent seat along with saddlebags. All original parts appear to be present. Being a "naked" bike with Ducati’s trademark tubular trellis frame, the company’s designers did a stellar job of hiding the model’s slew of wiring and sensors so they could highlight the crown jewel of the bike: the engine.
