From 2009 to 2011, the Ducati 1198 upheld the racing lineage this Italian Marque so proudly carries on. It inherited many of the features and design elements that made its predecessors instantly recognizable, such as a single-sided swing arm. Yet, it featured a more powerful desmodromic twin-cylinder engine, upgraded suspension, redesigned wheels and the addition of traction control that made piloting the power-boosted Italian superbike safer for those of us who aren’t Carl Fogarty. An updated paint and graphics package made the new model discernable from its predecessors on the street. For 2011, a special SP version was introduced, taking the place of the 1198S.

The Ducati 1198 is an exquisitely designed Motorcycle. The 1198 shares more design elements with the older 998 than with its predecessor the 999, such as horizontally placed headlights and a non-integrated exhaust system. Another carry over from its 916/998 heritage is the single-sided swingarm.
This bike is designed for fast flowing corners and consequently struggles to stay on line in the tightest of tight corners, but as the ride height and suspension are fully adjustable just needs time and care to get the ride geared towards the rider.
The 1198 R makes a manufacturer claimed 180 hp (134 kW) and 99.1 lbf·ft (134.4 N·m) torque This is truly one of those motorcycles that everybody should be allowed to ride once in their life for the experience of riding the best V-twin ever made.
