does anyone think the '08 model year S2R will have the 1078 like the motard & strada? i'm ready(next year) to buy new again and have had the S2R1K in mind. but if '08 is going to have the 1078 i'll wait. ??? either way i'm psyched.

I had the same thoughts. Seems these days all the manufactures make big changes every year and unless you are made of money it is impossible to keep up. If you buy an 08 then there will be changes in 09 that you wished you had. I just went and bought one.

you should expect a 1078 (dryclutched aircooled) monster for 08. I think they will do also a smooth change of optics/design. not a radical like they did it with the step from 998 to 999.

the next top monster: s1100r (or 1200 from forthcoming superbike r-version) in 08 ??

it appears, from the ducati web page, the multistrada 1100 has a wet clutch & the hypermotard(1100)has a dry clutch. i like noise if it is generated from the horsepower side of the house, but i don't understand the fascination with the mechanical chatter that adds nothing to the performance. IMO ???

It's 1078, and although it's pure speculation, the guys at my dealer all say no for 07 and yes for 08.
Key words there are "pure speculation". Ducati hasn't even hinted that the S2R will get the 1100 motor.

Common sense however says it will eventually. Unless they drop the Monster. Sure that's unlikely, but never say never.
