Ducati's first stab at a touring model to complement its modern sports bikes was the ST2 of 1997, which deployed the 900SS's air-cooled 4-valve motor in the Bologna firm's trademark trellis frame. A more upmarket model using a modified version of the 916 superbike's water-cooled 8-valve Desmoquattro engine - the ST4 - followed in 1999. Although stylistically similar to its predecessor, the ST4 was considerably more powerful, scorching to a top speed of fractionally over 160mph. n 2001 the model was upgraded with the even more powerful 996cc Desmoquattro engine, becoming the ST4S.
This ST4S has seen one owner since new and is in very good condition. It currently has sport exhausts mounted, but we have the original ones too.
