Ducati 916 MONSTER S4 2001

With its 916 core, the Monster has finally found an engine worthy of its name. Timeless, the plastic of the Ducati is seen underlined by a surplus of aggressiveness thanks to its magnificent red rims, stitched to the 916. The chassis is that of the ST4, in order to bring more rigor to the behavior much more angry of this roadster.

Sprinkled with carbon elements, the S4 gives in the bestial. The frame seems almost timid against the big engine with 4 valves per cylinder. Visually, the Ducat ‘announces the color: it will be sport.

No need to hope for the flexibility of a Japanese. it pounded under 3000 trs but it sends big after. Its most expressive zone: between 3 and 6000. In these modes, the slightest rotation of the throttle triggers lightning. Mama mia – what power! From the top of its 101 hp, the S4 would make pass the 900 for a nice little muse. A deep breath, copious torque, particularly alert revs and a surprising extension, this Monster has enough to make other roadsters tremble. Disregarding softness or tenderness, the motorcycle demands that we take care of it with insistence. No hugs, no grip. You will need some to manipulate the clutch lever, as firm as the saddle which will not spare your buttocks. Do not expect any help from the suspensions. Stiffness of the damping goes hand in hand with the stiffness of the chassis. She yearns for arson … hold her firmly, attack and enjoy her particularly sporty behavior. The agility of this machine is not very instinctive and it will take more effort than with the 900 for a quick change of angle. Logic: with more weight and a more open column angle, the beast is more physical to take. It is better to stay on good asphalt – Generous, the S4 will reward you with intoxicating sensations, a superb handling and a symphony of twin that takes the guts. Driven with beating speed, the Italian can be traced back to many machines, not even fearing confrontation with much more sporty models. However, if you happen to cross paths with potholes, be prepared for some racket hits in the back..
Braking is a model of its kind: bite and bluffing power. Brembo reputation and 320mm discs bitten by 4-piston calipers are in the spotlight.

OK, comfort is the last of her priorities, she steers like an aircraft carrier, flexibility does not exist (engine as suspension ‘) and basically, she is a real bitch. A simple kiss and you will succumb instantly. And when his heart is restless, the thrill that runs through your vertebrae will take you into a pure ecstasy and without concessions.
