Ducati M1000 DS MONSTER

Ducati M1000DS MONSTER review

The Ducati M1000 DS MONSTER is the perfect combination of sporting prowess and strong character. The powerful Dual Spark engine complemented by the exposed trellis frame keep the riders heart pounding at every bend. Our most powerful air-cooled Monster gets its strength from the 1000 Dual Spark engine that achieves new levels of efficiency and reliability. Ducati decades of experience with air-cooled twin technology and the innovative Ducati MONSTER M 1000 engine are a product of our continuous advancement in the field. The Monster 1000 is available in two versions: the 1000 and 1000S. Both feature the 1000 DS enginef and advanced rising rate Superbike rear suspension that allows the adjustment of ride height separately from spring preload.

Ducati MONSTER M1000 DS

Normally expensive upgrades like adjustable control levers, anti-theft immobilizer and Brembo twin disc brakes are standard on both versions. The M 1000 series replaces the 900s and is the most powerful air-cooled Monster yet. For 2004 they were available in two versions. Although both share the same 1000ccm DS (Dual Spark) Desmodue engine previously introduced on the Super Sport series and Multistrada, the basic M1000 is an essential, stripped-down model while the M1000S tested here adds a small "flyscreen" fairing and several carbon-fiber goodies to spice it up and add to the street-fighter look. With a capacity of 992cc the torquey, air-cooled 1000DS Desmodue is a two-valve per-cylinder engine that offers up sporty performance while maintaining some semblance of simplicity by shunning an added cooling system. The 2-valve design also reduces maintenance costs for valve adjustments, which can really add up over the life of a bike-especially a Ducati. Besides simplifying the Monster 1000S and its service requirements, air cooling also eliminates the need for a radiator, which restricts turning radius and makes it difficult to make a U-turn in a narrow street or parking area. By combining Dual Spark ignition, electronic fuel injection with 45mm throttle bodies and an exhaust catalyst, the Monster 1000S has good power yet responsibly low emissions. An essential street fighter with its fully exposed engine and bodywork the Monster delivers style and real sport bike performance. Classic versions of the bike, which have made this family so popular, include the agile 620 and the powerful 1000. More specs and user manual of Ducati M1000DS you can see in next overview.
