1st Ducati 1098R Oboard Video

ducati-1098-launch-300.jpgThe guys over at visordown.com have the first fast onboard lap video of the 1098R in action.  The word “missile” was used over and over to describe the bike.  Also, reported as “the first production bike that feels like a race bike”. With 99 ft lbs of torque and eight traction control settings, it will take a brave wrist to keep the throttle pegged throughout a corner.  I guess that’s why Casey Stoner schooled all the old-school boys with his electronic trickery.  The Nintendo, Sega, Play Station generation will think nothing about this I’m sure.  See the first ride impression on their site as well.
