Not Particularly – 2007 Ducati Monster S4RS

Warning!

This post is in our archives. Links in this post have been updated to point to similar bikes available to bid on eBay.

With a boatload of compromises made to accommodate the 998 cc Superbike engine, the list of things that the Monster S4RS isn’t is longer than those it is.  All a matter of priorities, as the water-cooled testastretta with top of the line components has a way of re-aligning priorities toward the moment.  This example from Colorado has been comprehensively farkled and looks ready to try and stop time.

2007 Ducati Monster S4RS

Not easy to show everything a water-cooled engine needs and have it look good.  Things that are normally hidden are polished, dressed, aligned, and straightened, with an occasional carbon fiber guard.  The SR4S sports the deep-V sump and curved radiators required by the 130 ponies, and has twin cooling fans that even the superbike didn’t get. The red paint of the trellis frame captures the eye and is complemented by the red racing stripe, but the tubular single-sided swingarm was left black.  Forged Marchesini snowflakes in white beckon the microfiber towel and cleaner wax.

The previous owners have been all over this Monster, and customized or updated nearly everything.  Euro-3 emissions required a catalyzer, but that was binned in favor of the Termignoni system.  Rizoma and DucaBike upgrades are everywhere, with SpeedyMoto, Samco, ASV, and assorted carbon accents.   With the exception of holes left from the rear blinkers, it hangs together pretty well, and almost gets a red, white, and blue theme going here and there.  From the eBay auction:

The S4RS isn’t a racking up the miles type of bike, and this one has some nice rides in store before the next major service.  Seems like a pro detail would be worth it, though this level of color and carbon will attract attention no matter what.  While other bikes better suited to long hauls and track days, the testastretta Monster is a pretty extreme choice for hacking around.  The quality components, factory and aftermarket, will be beneficial whether you’re going across town or for the whole afternoon…

  • Seems like a lot of work to do and not replace the tank with a metal one.

  • Red and white…with blue hoses and reservoir caps. That doesn’t clash at all.

    BTW, the recommended intervals on Testastretta 998’s is every 7500 miles…so it’s due a valve job and throttle body sync in roughly 300 miles if it hasn’t already been done. Get ready to drop about $1200 for a Desmo service.

  • It’s not an auction, but a buy it now with the make offer button. I’ve got an M695 that I like for it’s simplicity and light weight – to my eye the S4R is a pig. I find the current models, other than the superbikes, bizzare and grossly overstyled. It’s ironic that one could spend so much customizing, and lose it all on resale, partly because many buyers would prefer to do it themselves.

  • correct Danny, extended valve service interval didn’t happen until the Evo engine. If those belts haven’t been done, they are certainly timed out, and of course the first valve adjust is the most important…
