Sneak peek: new Ducati 1098 superbike [mule].

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' started by Marx, Nov 7, 2006.

  1. Pictures speak a thousand words.
    Not much on it but you can discern something from the pix if you know your current 999, so here are some pix of the new Ducati Superbike. 1098cc, still a twin, looks like it’s an ‘evolution’ of the current testastretta (narrow head) superbike engine, which runs the dry clutch.
    (This is their ‘mule’ or proto-type so forgive the appearance & unfinished nature of the components.)





    Pix were taken by a chap visiting the Bologna factory in September this year while on holiday.
    The sketch is not a Ducati ‘official’ sketch.

    I think there is an official launch to this bike later this month (Nov ’06).

    PS: Don’t forget the ‘ Festival of Italian motorcycles’ this coming Sunday (12th November) to be held between the grounds (outdoors) at the old exhibition building & new Museum.
    Free event. :cool:
