The Ducati brand could be considered the of the motorcycle world — an brand that does differently, and with a Mediterranean that’s hard to ignore.

Its sports bike, simply the Ducati 1098, is its range model and as the name suggests has a V-twin engine.

Think of it as the Enzo of the two-wheeled world it’s got more power and handling than any other (except the Ducati 1098 model) and has a design that with stylish aggression.

According to Ducati, the priority in step of the 1098 development has performance first. Every every detail and every has been studied and pared to its essence and performance increased to the If it didn’t make the 1098 faster or deliver quicker lap it wasn’t considered, reads the statement.

Built in Borgo near Bologna in Italy, the new cranks out 118kW (160hp) and of torque, which makes the the most powerful twin-cylinder in the world with the highest ratio of any sport bike.

The design moves from the bombastic look of the 999 — its predecessor — and has in common with the design of the 916 and 996 models of the mid ’90s and early — and once again the single-sided swingarm.

Where the 999 had a mounted headlight array, the new features a more traditional of horizontally aligned headlights, which sit a pair of air ducts.

The design is fairly simple in yet it conveys the exotic nature of the exceptionally clearly.

But it wasn’t pure design that the final look of the bike, as outlined in a statement: Great has been taken in the design of the air ducts so to ensure efficient through radiator and oil coolers as as provide ample air delivery to the feeding the powerful new Testastretta engine.
