2009 Ducati 1198/1198s

  1. Nice, Ducati have gone to a bigger motor for the standard model bike whereas currently you have to fork out mega dollars for a 1198cc Ducati and its still called a 1098R...WTF??

    I dont like the wheels on the 1198s cause its going back to the older Ducati style wheels, The 1098s Marchesinis are way better, and even the standard model 1198 gets The old wheels but not in the lighter spec wheels and red stripping of the current Ducati's :(


    Still what a bike, next time they should consider changing something on the exterior as from a distance no-one can tell if its Brand Spank or a couple years old.
  2. Maybe they can have " Championi del mondo Superbike" stickers for 2009.
