2005 Ducati Multistrada 1000S
Ducati has developed an even more advanced machine on the basis of the 1000 DS, made to measure for riders who appreciate the Multistrada mainly for its sports abilities. The difference between the 1000 DS and 1000 S DS lies in the special equipment of the latter, like its special handlebars, multi-adjustment suspensions, and carbon fibre body parts, taken directly from the Superbike world.
Just like the entry level model, the 1000 S DS is also new for 2005. It shares all fairing and instrumentation components with the basic 1000 but its overall appearance is clearly influenced by the presence of various racing components. The high level of equipment of the 1000 S DS is designed to enhance the more sporting nature of this universal bike. Sports performance is ensured by suspensions that are mechanically and aesthetically identical to those of the 999 S as any motorcycle enthusiast is bound to notice. Further distinguishing details on the S version include its variable section aluminium handlebars, carbon fibre front mudguard and timing belt cover. The 1000 S DS is available in black and red.
The sports handling of the Multistrada 1000 S DS has been achieved by the more professional suspension setup. No changes have been needed to the already powerful and flexible engine. The engine therefore remains Ducati’s most highly developed twin spark air-cooled L-Twin, delivering 92 HP at 8000 rpm….that’s one of my so many passions…;) I just love the sound…zhoom zhooooom …something happens to me 😀
