Featured Listing – 2005 Ducati Monster S4R

8.20.2019: Sold in just 14 days. Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

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,

Autograph Hounds: 2007 Ducati 999S Team USA Edition

For Sale: 2007 Ducati 999S Team USA Edition

Sorry for the short trigger time on this one, RSBFS fans. There is not much time to go on this interesting piece of Ducati history. Sure, the Parts Unlimited “Team USA” livery looks good, and the 999s is no slouch in the motorsports department – but what makes this one interesting is that the tail section is signed by both Ben Bostrom and Neil Hodgson. If you are into signatures, this one is connected to some pretty good looking memorabilia.

From the seller:
2007 Ducati 999S “Team USA” Special Edition in excellent condition with only 2440 miles! This was the very last 999 model Superbike produced by Ducati and was a Special Edition commemorating the 2006 Ducati AMA Superbike race team, in “S” model trim with lots of extras! Probably one of the best race-replica paint schemes ever produced by Ducati, this bike is STUNNING to look at! The tail section is hand-signed by Ducati AMA Superbike team riders Neil Hodgson and Ben Bostrom. Nicely accessorized with Leo Vince full race exhaust system with remapped ECU, SpeedyMoto billet clutch cover, billet adjustable rearsets, and Pazzo billet adjustable levers. This is not only a great bike to ride, it’s a great bike to OWN as there was a very limited production run of these machines, it has already reached “Collector” status in the minds of many!

With super low miles and what looks to be in fantastic condition, this 999s is waiting for a new home. Currently priced at $12,495, it again forces me to wonder aloud at the monetary value a famous person with a sharpie can add to the sale of a bike. History shows that some scribbles do not often a premium price make, yet this is a very cool opportunity all the same.

For your chance to check this one out, click the link and jump over to the auction. This is a great looking bike with some neat history. Sorry we caught this one late – so be sure and move quickly!
