Multistrada 1000 S DS - 2005

Ducati MTS 1000 S DS

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 Íhlins suspensions, and carbon fibre body parts, taken directly from the Superbike world.

Style

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.

Chassis

Though the bike's main dimensions are the same, the presence of more advanced suspensions makes the handling of the Multistrada 1000 S DS significantly different, turning it into more of a superbike with a unique riding ergonomics. The 1000 S DS boasts an Íhlins upside down fork with fully adjustable damping and TiN coated stanchions for perfect reaction to road surfaces plus an Íhlins rear monoshock, also fully adjustable and with Ducati's super-practical remote spring preload adjustment.

Engine

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.
