Jamming superbike performance into a standard package, Ducati brought more excitement to the Monster corner of the showroom with their water-cooled S4’s.  For 2005 the S4R used the four-valve 996 engine tuned for 113hp.  From the Carolinas, this blue example has been nicely accessorized and maintained.

At the top of the Monster range, the S4R used premium suspension components are from Showa, with Ti nitrided fork legs and fully adjustable monoshock.  The sculptural single-sided swingarm is templated from the MH900e showcase.  Brakes are semi-floating Brembos, super(bike) sized at 320mm.  The classic trellis frame is in body color, which camouflages some of the surface mounted plumbing and electrical.  The bikini fairing and carbon accents keep the eyes moving, and the 996cc engine runs cooler without the usual fairing.

Longtime RSBFS reader Ryan chose well as the previous owner had started with a good year (2005’s have a steel fuel tank and no ethanol issues), specified the option paint, and added 2-into-2 Termignoni exhaust, Speedymoto bar risers and Pazzo levers.  Ryan made his own mechanical and appearance mods, and has these comments-

I serviced all the fluids, installed Pirelli Angel GT tires, and a new EVR sintered clutch pack, blue STM clutch pressure plate, Oberon slave cylinder and Speedymoto open cover to showcase the dry clutch. At 16,000 miles it received valve adjustment, belts, fuel filter, new EK chain, 14 tooth front sprocket, Ducati Performance Touring seat, CRG bar end mirrors, Rizoma front signals, and integrated tail light. The ECU was sent out to Houston Superbikes for software flash and disabling of the immobilizer.  The bike runs flawlessly, has clean title, never taken to the track, great condition with only a few minor paint chips and faded carbon fiber heel guards. This year it’s had fluids serviced, new coolant hoses, rear brake pads, and new timing belts. Including original seat, front and rear stands with sale.

Ryan’s S4R has 22,795 miles but looks much less, especially with the maintenance history.  Some find a certain beauty in the complexity of a 996, and this silver, black and blue Monster makes it look as good as ever.  Asking $5,000 for the pleasure,
