ducati 1098R Specs


These pics are from the EICMA show in Milan (November), which is the largest motorcycle show in the world. I was also lucky enough to see the R at Ducati’s production facilities in November as well. I’m always amazed at the art these guys create. Why don’t I ever get tired of looking at these bikes?

It’s not immediately noticeable, but this bike has a ton of carbon fiber on it. I had to battle through a crowd of excited Italians so that I could get a few pictures, and take a peek inside the fairings where I saw more carbon fiber!

I cannot wait for the SBK races this year, go Bayliss!
