Ducati has introduced the new Monster S2R 1000.
From the press release:
With its clean, pared-down lines, the Monster S2R 1000 maintains all the styling and functional features of the SR line, including the signature frame and running gear. The twin vertically stacked silencers mounted on the right side and the single-sided swingarm in aluminium alloy distinguish the Monster SR from the rest of the competition.
The Monster S2R 1000 will take its place between the agile S2R 800 and the extreme power of the 4-valve S4R. The S2R 1000 boasts outstanding rideability and scintillating performance thanks to the reliable and powerful 1000 Dual Spark engine, the latest evolution of the air-cooled L-twin made in Borgo Panigale, already proved successful on other models in the Ducati range.
The S2R 1000 suspension features a fully-adjustable Showa upside-down fork that allows riders to adapt the riding characteristics of the bike to suit different road conditions and individual riding style, thus increasing comfort and riding pleasure. The rear suspension is progressive and adjustable with a Sachs single shock. To maximise braking power, the Monster S2R 1000 uses two 320 mm discs with 4-piston calipers in the front, and a 245 mm disc with a 2-piston caliper at the rear.
