The Ducati 1198 is a sport bike made by Ducati from 2009 to 2011. For the 2011 model year there were two models: the 1198 and 1198SP (replacing the 1198S).[1] The 1198 shared design elements with its predecessor 1098, but has more power and torque, redesigned wheels, lighter headlights, traction control, and lighter fairings (on the S model), and a few minor paint changes.[2] One carryover from its 998 heritage is the distinctive single-sided swingarm.

Performance[edit]

Ducati claim that the 1198/1198 SP makes 170 hp (127 kW), 97.1 lbf·ft (131.6 N·m) torque, and has a dry weight of 173 kg (381 lb).[3] Rear wheel output was tested as 117.75 kilowatts (157.91 hp) @ 9,600 rpm and 90.14 lbf·ft (122.21 N·m) torque at 8,300 rpm, with a wet weight of 200 kg (441 lb).[4] The 1198 R makes a manufacturer claimed 180 hp (134 kW) and 99.1 lbf·ft (134.4 N·m) torque.[5]
