Ducati 800 MONSTER S2R 2006

The S2R is a happy surprise. It takes the very successful line and certain elements of the S4R to seduce the biker charmed by the ultimate Monster but put off by its cosmic price. It is true that this bitch equipped with the twin 996 practically costs the price of a GSX-R 1000. But there is a story behind the birth of this machine….
In fact, it replaces the 800 Monster. This roadster was the unloved of the family. The aura of her sisters (620 and 1000) overshadowed her and the public shunned her. However, more powerful than the 620, almost as efficient as the 900 and less expensive than the 1000, inheriting the same hellish face, it represented the best compromise. No one saw it, but the 800 was actually a chrysalis biding its time to wake up. In 2005 will be born the butterfly that slept in her.
Welcome to S2R. It takes from the mid-monster the frame, engine and fork. But its dazzling wings are the charm of its big sister: the single-sided arm, the rim attached to it, the 2 raised side escapes, the small colored band that crosses the motorcycle lengthwise, the nose screen. These are the attributes of its elder. The reward: it is magnificent. Let’s not forget the Magura handlebars and the footrests of the S4R plus the APTC system fitted to the 620. Thanks to it, the clutch is much friendlier..
What does S2R lack to be successful? Nothing. She has name, charm, spirit and character. So, big success in sight ?

Mhhhggnnniiieuuu … That was the effort to engage on the old Ducat ‘. The Italians were asking for a grip. But with the new version of the APTC system which softens the clutch control, you no longer need to have 50 kg of pressure in the left hand. So much the better because it will be necessary to juggle with the box during walks in town. The final transmission pulls too long and we often end up "between 2 waters" gearbox ratio question. Still, the selection goes well and we are ready for that to make passers-by’s eyes shine. The melody of the twin desmo, very close to that of the S4R, has already taken care of turning the heads of future admirers. But don’t think the Monster has become an easy-to-tame beast. You have to accept its impractical aspects, and would you believe it, customers love it. Bitch or rebel, it’s up to you. With a saddle that is mounted at a height of two fingers, an always ungrateful turning radius and a certain support on the forearms, the S2R starts by showing its teeth before engaging the pilot..

Destination the road, the real one, the one that turns. The first minutes to wind up on the couple, very honorable in the usual modes, allow the machine and the pilot to appreciate. Confidence sets in. So, quite naturally, we want to know what happens by increasing the pace. The twin accepts to be taken to 9000 rpm but does not really enjoy it. No need to whip it like a supersport boiler, it prefers and offers you pleasure in mid-range. Don’t worry about the arson. You can go into the corners hard and hold the brakes there, then throw the bike onto the corner. The S2R can also take more than the 800.
More enticing plastic, exciting engine, quality braking and clutch, Italian freshness, the new Monster S2R does not disappoint. She takes care of her line and leaves the big watts to others. It’s up to you to see what appeals to you the most.

Note that there is a ‘Dark’ version 500 € cheaper.
