S2R800 - The Entrance To The SR Series
Those who wish to enter the Monster family with a bigger bang, both in terms of styling and performance, need look no further than the S2R 800.
This entry to the high performance SR series Monsters features the exclusive APTC system, ensuring maximum safety on extreme rides thanks to the slipper-clutch action when down-changing. The system also makes city riding much more comfortable because of the reduced clutch lever effort. Its Euro 3 compliant, air-cooled, 800 L-Twin Desmo engine delivers sports-level performance, yet is balanced, reliable and easy to tame, thanks to the racing-derived electronic fuel injection system and computer controlled engine management.
DUCATI POWER AND APTC CLUTCH
The Adler Power Torque Clutch, a Ducati exclusive, makes the S2R800 even friendlier, safer and more comfortable. It provides a clutch pull that is amazingly light, while also including ‘slipper’ clutch benefits. A ‘slipper’ clutch, typically found on race bikes, benefits the rider by reducing the destabilizing rear wheel ‘lock-up’ or ‘chatter’ phenomenon when downshifting aggressively. It also benefits advanced riders, and racers alike, for the very same reasons.
