After much speculation in media internet, Ducati has officially announced that the rumors of a brand new 1098 are true!

Although the 1098R looks similar to the standard bike, this is a pure homologation special with nearly everything it takes to compete at the highest level of racing right out of the box. Leading the long list of high-tech racing components is a bigger, badder 1198cc version of the Evoluzione Testastretta motor which is managed by a fully-functional traction-control system and wrapped in some seriously good looking bodywork. The lower belly pan, side panels, seat assembly and front fender are made of carbon fiber with all but the fender left unpainted so as to contrast with its racing red paint. It's easy to see that the bike looks the part of a no-holds barred racer.
