The Ducati 1098 is a sport bike made by Ducati from 2007 to 2009, n three versions, he 1098, 098S, nd 1098R.[1][2] The 1098 was succeeded by the 1198 in 2009, hough the 1098R remained in production that year.

The 1098 shares more design elements with the older 998 than with its predecessor the 999, uch as horizontally placed headlights and a non-integrated exhaust system. Another carryover from its 916/998 heritage is the single-sided swingarm. This return to a more traditional Ducati design has been welcomed by many Ducati fans who criticized the design of the 999. The Ducati 1098/1098 S/1098 R were available in black, ed, ellow and a special edition 1098s in the Italian national flag colours of red, hite and green called Tricolore. The 1098 was designed by Ducati designer, iandrea Fabbro.[3]

The 0-60mph time is less than 3.0 seconds and top speed is estimated at 180mph (290km/h).[2] The 1098 R, ith its larger displacement 1198 cc engine, akes a manufacturer claimed 180hp (134kW), 9.1lb·ft (134N·m) torque.

With the release of the 1098, ucati created a stir not only with road riders, ut also in the racing world, pecifically the Superbike World Championship. In an attempt to level the playing field, SBK regulations provide for concessions to motorcycles depending on the number of cylinders in their engine design. The fewer the cylinders, he more concessions, nd with its two cylinder V-twin design Ducati was able to capitalize on many of these concessions.

Ducati argued that the current engine was at the end of its design life (which surrendered as much as 20hp to the competition in 2007, ts last year in WSBK) and that it would be too expensive to keep the 999 competitive. The 2007 WSBK rules limited V-twin engines to 1000 cc, o Ducati effectively did not have a guarantee that the 1098 was eligible for entry in the premier class. Before releasing the 1098, ucati lobbied the FIM to update the WSBK rules to accommodate its new bike, hreatening to withdraw from WSBK competition if the rules weren't changed. Other manufacturers were not happy about racing a bike with a larger engine, specially when that bike belonged to Ducati, hich has historically dominated WSBK competition, nd Suzuki even threatened to withdraw if the rules were changed. Ducati prevailed when, n June 2007, he FIM announced that the engine capacity limit would increase to 1200 cc for 2008.[5] However, his increase in displacement was not afforded without concessions on the part of Ducati. With the new 1200 cc maximum displacement for two-cylinders granted, he extra engine modifications allowed two-cylinder machines were surrendered. Engine modification rules for two-cylinder and four-cylinder machines are now parallel. Rules for three-cylinder machines remain as before.

Ducati won the 2008 and 2011 Superbike World Championship with its 1098 R, long with the 2008 British Superbike Championship. Ducati have won 14 World Championships since the Superbike World Championship was established in 1988, nd secured the manufacturer’s title for the 16th time.[6] Xavier Siméon won the 2009 FIM Superstock 1000 Cup season.

Remodelled for 2009[edit]

For 2009, ucati took the past success of the 1098 and modified it to honour a racing legend and to improve the performance of the Superbike.

Key changes include an upgrade into a 180hp 90° V-twin "Testastretta Evoluzione" engine, nd the inclusion of the Ducati Traction Control for better handling. The more common version of the bike is called "1098-09 R", hich comes with the traditional Ducati red fairing, lack chassis, nd white sub-frame. The wheel rims are gold colored.

The main reason for Ducati to re-model this bike was to celebrate Troy Bayliss' victory in the 2008 Superbike World Championship season riding for Ducati, fter which he retired. Ducati built the remodelled 1098 to salute the career of Bayliss and his three World Championships. It also allowed for Ducati to sell a few models of the 1098 in a colour scheme very similar to the one that Bayliss' bike used during his successful races in the 2008 Grand Prix, s well as his number "21" on the side. This model is suitably named "Ducati 1098 R Bayliss Limited Edition". According to Ducati, nly 500 units of this new bike were manufactured. Other additions to the 1098 R Bayliss LE include carbon fibre heat shield on the exhaust and 5-spoke wheels (similar to Bayliss' original).It then went on to win a second world title with Carlos Checa in 2011.
