First unveiled at the 1992 Cologne Motorcycle Show, the Ducati M900 Monster was the “original naked bike”. The wildly successful parts-bin special was penned by Miguel Galluzzi and quickly became one of the Bologna firm’s best-selling models, accounting for more than half of all of Ducati’s sales within a decade of its release.

As Ducati’s superbikes evolved, so too did the Monster lineup. But by the middle-aughts, the Italian marque was facing increasingly fierce competition from fellow European manufacturers like Triumph and KTM. So in 2006, Ducati shoehorned the powertrain from its 998 superbike into the Monster. Two years later, Ducati one-upped itself, this time delivering what was essentially a naked version of its World Superbike Championship-winning 999 model.

Dubbed the S4RS, the naked was powered by Ducati’s Testastretta 999 engine. The water-cooled narrow-head motor featured Marelli FI with competition-derived 12-hole injectors and an auxiliary oil cooler. The race-bred L-Twin redlined at 10,500 rpm, putting down 130 hp at 9,500rpm and 77 ft-lbs of torque at 7,500rpm. Despite being housed in Ducati’s trademark tubular trellis frame, the company’s designers did a stellar job of hiding the model’s slew of wiring and sensors so they could highlight the crown jewel of the bike: the engine. The 390lb (177kg) S4R S also boasted an array of competition-grade componentry, much of it borrowed from the R-spec 999. 43mm inverted Öhlins forks with low-friction titanium nitride coating, Öhlins monoshock, aluminum single-sided swing-arm, four-pot Brembo P34 brakes with dual 320mm discs, and forged ten-arm alloy Marchesini rims were all standard fare on the hopped-up naked.

In 2008 Ducati released the “ultimate expression of the Monster” via a limited run of only 400 Tricolore edition S4R S’s — 250 of which were sent to the US. Adorned in the classic Italian flag livery, the S4RS Tricolore also featured a carbon fiber front fender, radiator cover, side-covers, cam belt covers, and heat guard and silencer cover for the model’s stacked dual aluminum exhaust.

Each of the 400 units also came with an individualized number plate.

This example (VIN: ZDM1RB5T68B112623) is #101 out of 400. The seller is the third owner, he notes that the first two owners primarily kept the bike on display and he bought it with 1,172 miles on it in November of 2019.

The odometer now shows 3,582 miles.
