New Ducati 1098

chinese whispers time........just spoke to a US ducati dealership thats seen the new bike,........." yes its beautifull looking" he said," but the most impressive thing is that its supposed to be 155bhp at the crank in bip model and 40 lbs lighter than the 999 !!!!!!!Gulp


lets just watch the values of 999 drop like a stone now as everyone tries to trade-in for the new model.

Don't think 996 is taking malicious or smug pleasure in somebody else’s misfortune Jools, more stating a fact really.

Well any dealer who's livelihood is based on Ducati would say that.

As for 999 prices dropping like a stone - they're at rock bottom anyway and will probably be a bargain for many.

Finally - two points of view, one from a journo friend and the other through Ducati directly states on the one hand impressive power but on the other UJM looks - will that tempt those that have bought their R1s and Gixxers back to the fold - time will tell but if it does look like a UJM best stick to our 99Xs then.

At the end of the day there's lots of speculation, probably best wait for the genuine tune from the organ grinder not the grunts from the monkeys and rumour-mongers. Whichever way up it won't better the 'Sedici

Well said,

NO dealers have seen the new bike yet, I am in regular contact with the guys at a main Ducati store in the US and they have had no more info than the european dealers.

With photos flying round the world in seconds nowadays, do you think that if there was a 1098 in the USA being shown arround it would stay covered up???

Its just a case of "you heard it here first"

Whatever will be, will be.

But I am looking forward to the 1098 (as a dealer whos livelihood depends on it!)

I'm off to Milan to see it on the 12th. cant wait!!!! photos will be sent!


748RS race bike (well, 853 but who\'s counting!)
999S road bike,

Lets simply look at the facts;

1.I'm only repeating what a principal at a ducati dealer in Texas TOLD me.
2.There,s no mention of the bike being in the USA,lets assume that he may have seen this in......Italy.
3.Without naming names,I've spoke to a ducati dealer in this country who says he's seen the bike (in Italy), so some people are getting previews......unless their telling porkies.


Call me sinical, but the introduction of a new model,if its to be belived about the performance,weight reduction and the aesthetics will create high demand.....this will only be good stick to be used by dealers to tell us how "they canrn't give us good money for our 999/749". Its happened before.
