What Is It?

The Ducati 1198 is a premium dedicated sports bike and is powered by a 1,198.4 cc V-Twin engine, producing 170 bhp at 9,750 rpm and maximum torque at 8,000 rpm. It has become quite iconic.

Features include:

  • Lightweight Trellis frame and single sided swingarm
  • Dual 330 mm discs up front with Brembo four piston calipers
  • 245 mm disc at the rear with Brembo two piston caliper
  • Adjustable 43 mm Showa upside down fork
  • Adjustable Showa shock
  • Steering damper, LCD dash
  • 2->1->2 exhaust system
  • 6 speed gearbox

It shares many design elements with the previous 1098 but includes a number of improvements like increased power and torque, re-designed wheels, lighter headlights and a new optional 8-level traction control. The 10-spoke wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 190/55 at the rear.

Accessories include the 8-level traction control (can't be added later), data logger, Aluminium pegs, racing screen and a variety of Carbon bits.

Colours: Black, white, red

The 1198S, 1198SP and 1198R are better equipped but noticeably more expensive. The 1198S gets you the data logger, traction control, Ohlins suspension, lighter 7-spoke Marchesini forged wheels and a slipper clutch.
