Only red for the 1098 and 1098S?

Just been browsing the Ducati website and it looks like red is the only option for the 1098?

Is that right?

No 749 models for 2007?

Just been looking at the Ducati website and under the 2007 model range there's no mention of the 749 in any shape or form.

Have they been discontinued?
