The 1098 R is the ultimate Superbike. Ducati describe it as the lightest, most powerful twin-cylinder bike ever made and celebrate its true competition-level traction control system that is supplied as standard for maximum track performance. It boasts the highest torque-to-weight ratio in the sport bike category and is the product of a team of designers and engineers focussed on just one objective - to win.

The 'R' is a race bike, pure and simple. Its competition specification and superior components together with advanced electronics and race-proven chassis technology deliver a level of performance that empowers you with confidence and capability.

World Superbike rule changes mean that the road-going 'R' version is closer than ever to the factory race bike. The 1098 R is not a replica - it is the real deal. An incredible 180hp L-Twin Testastretta Evoluzione engine in a race-winning Trellis chassis set-up tips the scales at an unbelievably lightweight 165kg and it comes with a race kit that introduces Ducati Corse's world championship winning traction control system.

A true collector's piece, this Singaporean registered motorcycle is in as-new condition and has covered what is believed to be just 300 genuine km's from new. Bidders should note that there is import duty to be paid on the overall price of this machine at the UK rate of 20% if it remains in the EU.
