The new DUCATI 1198 while maintaining the same aesthetic lines of the previous 1098, looks like a motorcycle totally renewed. The more powerful thanks to 170cv (125kW) paid by the new propeller Testastretta Evolution, lighter than the 1098 thanks to just 171kg dry weight, incorporates all the technology borrowed directly from the motion SBK World Champion Troy Bayliss 2008.

The 1198 is equipped with a jewel of technology as the engine Testastretta Evolution, the culmination of the development generated by the L-twin Ducati, capable of delivering 170cv (125kW) at 9750 rpm and develop a pair of 13.4 kgm at 8000 rpm, the highest among the sport's own category.

Many innovative solutions developed by Ducati on the track, including the integrated system of data acquisition series, the ingenious dual technique applied to the lightweight swingarm monobraccio and control system with traction active discharges approved for road use.

The innovative Ducati Traction Control, standard on the 1198 S version, by monitoring the speed of rotation of the tires front and rear, notes the shift in the rear acceleration and reduces electronically delivering power to restore grip. The system, which lets you choose from eight different profiles, greatly increases the security of being in acceleration curve.
