Although the 1198 shares bodywork with last year's 1098, Ducati claims it's an all-new model. The motor is a bored-out version of the Testastretta Evoluzione mill featuring new throttle bodies, crankcases, gear cluster, cams and pistons add up to a light, powerful motor good for a claimed 170 hp and 97 ft.-lbs. of torque. The 375-pound S version, 2 pounds lighter than the base 1198, gets the traction control and data-acquisition system found on last year's $40,000 1098R, as well as Öhlins suspension and 7-spoke Marchesini forged wheels. Ducati owners, particularly those who ponied up for the 2008 1098R, are already grumbling about the 1198S. Priced in the low $20,000 range, it should be very close to the performance and technology of the 1098R.



Finally, Ducati unveiled the 1098R Bayliss Replica. It has the same specs as your garden-variety 1098R, including the carbon-fiber bodywork and 180 hp engine spiced up with a pearl-white-and-red color scheme. It includes a racing exhaust system and ECU, cover, stand and commemorative plaque. Five hundred will be built. Pricing is unannounced but likely be around 45k.


Thats nice, Ducati's naked bikes also look good.
