Ever since Ducati got chance to compete in the World Championship, they continuously to rule the track and the street-legal is the incredible result of the tremendous Virtually every unit on bike was designed with in mind, especially the 1198cc Testastretta engine that is by a traction-control system.

Ducati the engine’s impressive performance hp and 99.1 lb-ft of torque) an equally competitive chassis, Ohlins suspension and Brembo system slightly justify the price (compared to that of any contender, but not only).

Also, the dash is derived that of the MotoGP Ducatis and complete information, including the control level selected, this is activated.

2009’s Troy Bayliss Limited features no performance upgrade, but the unique color scheme. shows how the Italians did their best with the standard in the first place and also the already racy look of the


The Ducati 1098 being produced in 2007 as a for the 999 model. It was powered by the 1099cc cylinder, 4 valve per cylinder liquid cooled engine, which the new one was developed for the 2009 year.

From the very year of manufacturing, the new Italian was a tremendous success that is now on by the bigger and more powerful version of the same consecrated type.

Stylistically, the new bike differ much. Quite we’re wondering how will enhance the mean looks of the in future years.


the launch of the 1098 and the 1098R, went against the Japanese motorcycles such as the Honda Yamaha R1. Suzuki GSX-R1000 and the ZX-10R.

All these models are by in-line fours and do look but not as sharp as the Ducati 1098R so it is obvious what attracts buyers.


They say a picture a thousand words, but how many does a picture of the 2009 1098R say because I’m sure that much

This is an incredibly sleek and yet demonstration of the Italian way of building Each headlight gets its own air underneath it, defining the general superbike look, while the and windscreen look as clean as The 1098R deflects air in the same way its racing sibling does and all are harmoniously blended in one with the for a compact, impeccable look of a bike that, through a luck, receives a pair of and mirrors in the quest for street

Ducati launched the 2009 Limited Edition so that point out even better the with the race version and it all when looking at the two in parallel. the headlights, mirrors and the license bracket and try not to suffer a shock. By the owners of these things have to really appreciate a lot of attention on the streets because the 1098R Bayliss LE does get it.


To be quite hones, you have to be a superbike pilot in to exploit 1098R’s full capabilities because this will always be able to its rider. Our ambition wasn’t to up the scale, but only to get the rides of our on what currently is one of the most and a very expensive Ducati

The first thing that you is the aggressive riding position and the that you are most likely way out of for this bike, just we were. The 1098R positions its as an integrated part of thebodywork and also how it will make a feel, like the weakest from a perfect chain.

The cooled, 1198,4cc, L-Twin four-valve per cylinder Desmodromic sounds, feels and performs it is always capable to deliver of the amazing power and torque a single twist of the throttle. And the feels inviting too. The may be the weakest link, but it is also the one feels in total control of the also due to the racing-like riding

Apart from the riding and the angry motor, the dry clutch provides an accurate impression of the that a superbike pilot’s fingers go through along the But it works very well and a lot of fatigue.

It is very hard not to be by the instant throttle response and by the that the 1198R will go up to the rpm redline faster than the realizes that it needs to The twin engine is mated to a precise and fairly easy to use six-speed gearbox, which virtually no room for error.

The 1098R carves corners extreme sharpness, helping the skid the asphalt and improve riding skills. The suspensions are hard and reassuring while the rider with all of the road’s but that’s nothing to compare the traction control system intervenes whenever necessary. The DTC the rear wheel from grip, especially when the throttle during corners.

We had it set at four out of eight (for riders) and felt completely with the immediate interventions we experienced.

This Ducati features a DDA (Ducati Data system, which’s settings are through a handlebar-mounted toggles on the left bar. The system data during rides and sessions and help improves the technique so that it can exploit the at its true capabilities.

As fast as a might be able to go, it still to stop and the Ducati 1098R it with great ease. on Four-piston Brembo Monobloc squeezing two 330mm discs up and on two-piston caliper working on a disc at the rear, the bike of a lot of stopping power. The brakes are performing and allow riders to hit late before corners and provide great results.

Overall, the 2009 Ducati will provide a totally riding experience compared to of the Japanese liter bikes, or is just us knowing how much beauty costs? Less


Both beautiful and performing, the standard 2009 1098R comes with a MSPR, while the Bayliss LE has a price tag. This both models well out of the superbike buyer’s financial and shows why the Japanese alternatives are so


Nevertheless, the Ducati and the Bayliss Limited Edition potent and competitive, real alternatives always ready to a unique riding experience as as you are willing to pay big bucks.
