Ducati S2R 800 Desmodue line to the Monster family: styled akin to the four-valve S4R, but with the simpler two-valve 800 cc. S2R 800 engine is unchanged from the 803cc motor of the M800, the new pipes have helped nudge peak power up one horse to 77bhp, with improved midrange.
All Monsters handle well, but this is special; an endearing blend of nimbleness and solidity its suspension adapts easily to all conventional road conditions, braking is impressive.
The air-cooled Dual Spark Desmo twin engine has bags of low-range torque in every Ducati in which it is installed.
