MODEL SUMMARY.

WOW ! Very collectable, brilliant and compact 2008 08 Reg. Ducati Monster S4RS Tricolore. A very rare Ducati, even amongst rare Ducatis. Limited Edition Ducati production numbers are often ambiguous and open to debate, but reputedly 400 of these were produced worldwide with just 34 examples in the UK

UK supplied by JHP Coventry, it has had just 2 owners from new. The original owner owned it from 2008-2011, and then the second owner since 2011. 8000 miles with extensive documented service history. Regularly serviced by GTEC Ducati. Just had major service completed by GTEC including belts, plugs, fuel filter, brake/clutch fluid, oil/filter, air filter and battery. New matching Dunlop Sportsmart Sportmax’s. The original stamped service book is present, along with an extensive amount of service bills and invoices, and all old MOTs. All books/documents/keys present (including Red ‘Master’ key)

Naturally, the S4RS Tricolore was finished in the Italian Tricolore colour scheme of Red, White and Green. Complimented by Gold forged lightweight Marchesini wheels, and a matching seat cowl. Lightweight Ducati Corse carbon fibre parts abounded including the front mudguard, rear hugger and chainguard, timing belt covers, lower seat panels, radiator end caps and exhaust shield

Significantly, the S4RS utilised the later ‘Testastretta’ derivative of the 90 degree Desmo V-Twin which featured a narrow head, much revised valve gear, and had been previously seen in the 998/999 Superbikes. Developing 130 bhp and 77 lb/ft this was far and away the most powerful Monster that had been seen. The rest of the mechanical spec. utilised the best of everything and featured fully adjustable 43mm dia. Ohlins forks with TiN surface treatment, a fully adjustable rear Ohlins monoshock, gorgeous aluminium single sided swingarm and Brembo radially mounted calipers with 4 pistons/4 pads and 320mm diameter discs. The aforementioned lightweight Marchesini rims finished in Gold also featured

It all added up to a machine of superb abilities, with the distinctive Ducati Testastretta Desmo V-Twin engine sounding great and offering torquey, grunty performance, allied to confidence inspiring, surefooted, handling and agility, with hugely powerful braking

These Monster S4RS Tricolores are genuinely very rare bikes indeed, and as already said are considerably more rare than many other rare Ducati models in terms of numbers produced, and pertinently UK supplied examples. This particular bike is an absolute dream. Just 2 owners from new, low mileage, and a very proper history, with much money spent recently. It’s provenance is quite superb, and it is in genuinely exceptional condition. Totally stock and standard, other than for the fitment of heated grips, it offers a not easily found opportunity for the right buyer
