Beastly: 2007 Ducati Monster S4R Testastretta

That L-twin packs 130bhp, so watch out!

The Monster is getting more powerful as it grows older. The 2007 Monster S4R Testastretta gets Ducati’s 130 horsepower, 4-valve-per-cylinder, Desmodromic, liquid cooled, 998cc Testastretta L-twin engine (whew!), which was earlier available only with the S4Rs Testastretta. Twin mufflers, tubular trellis chassis, single-sided swingarm, and the mini fairing continue as before, but two new paint schemes – titanium and red – will be offered.

The suspension also gets an upgrade, with the 43mm Showa USD front forks and Sachs rear shock absorber now being fully adjustable. Ride height at the back, which can be an important factor for changing a bike’s handling characteristics, is also adjustable on the 2007 Ducati Monster S4R Testastretta. The new bike will be available by early October this year.
