I recently purchased a 2007 Monster S4Rs that is pearl white. It has a thick red stripe, thinner red stripe in the outside, and a green stripe outside of that. I have some questions regarding this paint scheme.

On the cowl there is a phrase that says “casaforte di velocita” and it has “the doctor” underneath of it. Does anyone know anything about this?

Has anyone seen a paint scheme that matches my description?

Just bought this bike with 2300 miles and it runs great. Previous owner bought it new in 07 and kept it in storage. Pretty awesome!

Maybe a tricolore version? Custom paint?

The bike isn't a tricolore, it just has another green stripe outside the red ones.

I will have to take a picture of the paint. I suppose it could have been done after the bike was purchased, but I don't know.

Here are pictures of the paint. The chip in the tank is from the tank swelling and the previous owner put a tank pad on it.

Your green pinstripe is not a "stock" paintjob that I know of.

How about the frame and wheel color ? Is that a stock option ? All I’ve seen is white or black wheels. My S4RS has white with red stripe bodywork , red frame, black wheels.

Here are a couple more pictures of the bike. Note the Italian flag on the cowl. I'm really unsure of why this bike has these additional stripes and stickers. Everything on the bike has been clear coated so nothing is actually a sticker.

Likely the previous owner did it.

Looks like somebody added green pinstripes and a little Italian flag and then cleared over it. The rest of the bike looks like standard fare for a white S4Rs.

I’ve never seen an S4RS with a gold frame or wheels. Ask the PO.
We need to know !

I had a painter friend come look at it and the PO did have someone paint those green stripes on it. I think it's pretty funny! The green is really growing on me.

Thanks for the help everyone! I'm glad to see the community reaching out!
