First Ducati 1100 Breaks Cover, and it's a MultiStrada; New Monster Also Announced

By Alex Edge


2007 Ducati Multistrada 1100
As Dirck said in his article on the 6th, rumors have been swirling regarding the possibility of a new 1100cc air-cooled powerplant from Ducati. Well, it's official - today Ducati announced the 2007 Multistrada 1100.

The new Multistrada 1100 carries over the same chassis as the 2006 Multistrada 1000DS, but features a modified, big-bore version of Ducati's popular 1000DS air-cooled V-Twin motor. A 4mm increase in bore (from 94mm to 98mm) gives a new displacement of 1078cc (the 1000DS displaced 992cc), resulting in an increase in power from the old bike's 92hp@8000rpm to a new 95hp@7750rpm, and from 68lb-ft of torque at 5000rpm to 76lb-ft@4750rpm.

Of course, the Multistrada isn't the only Ducati powered by the 1000DS motor - models in the Monster and Supersport ranges also feature the 1000DS. This means that we're likely to see 1100DS Monster and Supersport models in the near future.

Ducati also announced a new Monster, the Monster S4R Testastretta, featuring the same 998cc V-Twin found in their 999 superbike - producing a claimed 130hp at the crank. Similar to the S4Rs introduced last year, the S4R lacks the high-end, and expensive Ohlins supension components. Nevertheless, tieh its own high-end features like radial-mount Brembo front brakes and fully adjustable suspension front and rear (Showa forks, Sachs shock), this is one trick Monster.

Ducati has released these pictures and details of its first 2007 model - the Monster S4R. The firm has essentially taken the 996 powered S4R - which we love - and replaced the engine with a full bore 999S superbike engine.

So power is up from 117bhp to 130bhp, and there's a heap more torque and sophistication too from the Testastretta head.

The chassis doesn't escape either: new Showa forks and a Sachs rear shock suspend the usual steel tube trellis frame, and the brakes are radial-mount Brembo items.

We're getting more new bikes later this week - stay tuned for more as it arrives...

Note that the 117hp is WAY underrated (mine puts down 112.5 to the wheel), and the current S4R has the showa/sachs combo.

Basically, ducati is phasing the non testrastretta motors out, the monster appears to be the first to lose the motor (by lose I mean "gain a better motor"), next will be the only remaining non-tst powered bike--the ST

the new 1100 motor seems nice...tons more torque, minor hp gains (good for the Multi and the non-4 valve touring bikes (and monster when it gets it). I do believe significant hp gains will be easy...considering how well the 2 valve motors respond to airflow improvements and tuning, the 10% increase in displacement will be fun. Interesting note: while hp only improved about 3%, torque improved by 12%, which suggests the tuning and airflow (exhaust, etc) are both relatively conservative and emphasize mid-range torque...I would think another 10hp or so could be gained before going to anything really radical (bear in mind, there are a ton of 1000DS motors out there making 100hp to the wheel...)
