2008 Ducati 1098 R

1098 R

The lightest and most twin-cylinder bike of all time. control fitted as standard for track performance.

The new 1098 R is the powerful and lightest twin-cylinder ever produced by the Borgo factory, with the highest ratio in the sportbike category.

It is the in the crown of the successful Superbike and it represents the ultimate expression of technology applied to a production

Ducati Corse engineers and worked in close contact the RD division during the development of project to produce a true bike, a masterpiece of incredible and innovation.

The numbers speak for A total of 180hp is on tap for this new machine, together with an torque value of 13.7

The weight figure also the racing origins of the 1098 R: puts the bike at the forefront of category.

The 1098 R is supplied a racing kit for track use. is made up of a pair of “102dB” mufflers and a dedicated ECU, boost the already exceptional of this new twin-cylinder Ducati.

this kit the rider can also dialog between the ECU and the DTC (Ducati Control) system, which is to a production bike for the first ever.

This extraordinary system . developed and perfected in with Ducati Corse, rear wheel spinning and as a allows the rider to manage the torque of the new Testestretta Evoluzione in particular when cornering and in corners.

The way DTC operates is regulated by the rider, who can select one of eight different on the instrumentation display depending on tarmac conditions and rider

Once again Ducati has the bar for the hypersport bike category by its MotoGP race technology to a road bike.

The development of the Evoluzione has now found its crowning in the new engine for the latest addition to the family: the 1098 R.

Created close collaboration between from Ducati’s production and departments, this new engine is with the same components the 1098 F08 that will on the Japanese opposition in the 2008 Superbike Championship.

The R version of the has been boosted to an engine of 1198cc. A bore increase 104mm to 106mm and a … of 67.9mm, producing a remarkable ratio, complete the ‘over-square’ of the engine.

The power output of (132.4 kW) at 9750 rpm and a torque of 13.7 kgm (134Nm) at 7750 rpm the 1098 R at the very top of its category. It is the powerful twin-cylinder production in history and fitting reward to the ingenuity of Borgo Panigale

Like the 1098, the ‘R’ again presents the revolutionary of compact cylinders and cylinder Whether external or internal, new development has been conceived to a lighter, more efficient, powerful and ultra-compact engine. The heads and crankcase are in aluminium and been sand cast to high resistance and at the same reduce the weight of the finished

As a result of the excellent fluid of the 1098, in the new 1098 R engine the between intake and exhaust has been retained. This highly efficient, straight ducts and newly shaped chambers that can contain valves (44.3mm inlet, exhaust) normally only in powerful racing engines. The ratio achieved in this new is 12.8:1.

The intake and exhaust have been redesigned and are now in titanium, controlled by high-grade lash caps and retainers and keepers. In this way it has been to guarantee the required resistance and levels, making the most of the precision of the Ducati desmodromic The camshafts are the same as the ones in the Superbike engine and have the valve lift.

The rockers are the same, and are produced in a special steel alloy, with a surface. This treatment wear to be reduced to a minimum and performance to be improved at higher

As on the 1098, the head covers are in and are … cast so as to ensure wall thickness precision and weight.

The large-bore pistons undergone considerable analysis and to ensure the correct stiffness, blow-by control and oil consumption. The has been suitably strengthened a double rib so as to resist the strong of gas loads and the inertia during Considerable weight saving from the use of titanium conrods, lighter than those in the version.

The big-end and the small-end of the are specially treated to guarantee wear resistance.

The gearbox has also been with respect to the 1098 the gears have a different for the sixth and are produced in higher-strength Component reliability is further by the application of a controlled shot-peening on the teeth.

The ultra-reliable slipper design again limits braking transmission towards the wheel, thus improving the of the bike under heavy

As on the 1098, the throttle bodies are shaped and MotoGP-derived. With a 30% in air flow over conventional bodies, the new shape makes a contribution to the record-breaking performance of motor.

The extreme performance of the Evoluzione engine meant modifications had to be made to the intake above all the cross-section of the elliptical bodies has been increased the 1098’s 60 sq. mm to 63.9 sq. mm; also, to sufficient fuel flow, it was to use two injectors for each cylinder the throttle body: a four-hole injector and a twelve-hole side which provide a greater flow at maximum power.

belt covers complete the of this new top-of-the-range Testastretta engine. Total weight from the 1098 is 3.5kg, a that is even more when compared to its predecessor, the engine, a reduction of 6.5kg.

the exhaust system of the 1098 R is lighter than the one on the 1098, which it shares a symmetrical layout that uses diameter tubing with thickness reduced by 30% to 0.8mm.

The terminates with Ducati’s under-seat silencers in steel and which deliver that big-bore 90 L-Twin sound.

This unit, just all the other Ducati engines, complies with Euro 3 emission norms.


This component has received the detailed study and ‘performance priority approach as the 1098. The was to achieve considerable weight while building-in strength and to manage the new high-powered Testastretta engine. Each and every not only contributes to achieving road holding and stability, but assembled, become a system value far greater than the sum of all its

In addition several modifications required to allow it to be used on the bike in next year’s Superbike Championship in view of the more restrictive regulations will enter into in 2007. The result is an extremely strength/weight ratio, which is for racing activity.

For the 1098 R the single-sided aluminium which equips the entire family, is painted black in to underline the racing spirit of the

Rear Suspension

The most innovation in the 1098 R’s suspension is the exclusive Ohlins single shock . produced technology directly derived Ohlins’s experience in MotoGP, and is used for the first time on a production bike.

This shock gives top-line during track use, with comfort and safety in road riding, and it also a considerable weight saving components produced with technology.

In addition to a wide of adjustments possible with the new TTXR, the rider can also the rear ride height of the making it easier to find the set-up for all riding conditions

Front Suspension

At the front the new R boasts the fully adjustable Öhlins forks, which low friction Titanium Nitride sliders and respond effortlessly to imperfection in the tarmac. Beyond advanced engineering solutions, one of the important characteristics of Öhlins is their ability to communicate the and quality of the tyre-to-road contact a feature that puts rider in superior control.

The package is completed with a fully-adjustable steering damper.

Monobloc calipers

The 1098 R is equipped with the Brembo’s caliper racing technology. The M4 uses four 34mm and two large surface pads for stopping power. Calipers are from a single piece of vs. the bolt-together construction of conventional The Monobloc design has much rigidity and resistance to distortion extreme braking, and therefore a much more precise at the brake lever.

The big 330mm . when matched to the Monobloc achieve spectacular braking Despite the larger diameter, weight has not increased due to the use of racing-style braking surfaces. The use of Monobloc combined with the legendary of Ducati’s Trellis frame and the R’s overall weight has made world championship brake performance.

Super wheels

As for the 1098 S, the “R” addresses this important by mounting Marchesini forged and wheels, reducing weight by (4lbs). Both front and are super lightweight and their is immediately apparent. The weight is further enhanced with the of a carbon fibre front

The Racing gold scheme of the rims denotes the extreme status.

Fairing and finish

The R and its ‘sister’ racing version exactly the same profile as the Wind-tunnel development has enabled an aerodynamic penetration to be obtained, allows the rider to effortlessly up a perfect racing stance. A of fairing components are made in fibre, highlighting once the racing spirit of this new twin-cylinder Ducati bike.

The example of this is the magnificent tail fairing showing off all the to detail with which Panigale engineers and technicians applied themselves to the project.

The new R stands out from the crowd for its look . note the number blisters on the front and tail . the gold wheels rims and anodized aluminium components, like the F08 version that race in Superbike.
