1098 - when is the official launch?

I know the bike is due to be launched at the Milan show. This opens to Joe Public on the 16th, but is there a trade day before hand and will the bike be launched then?

Any times/dates for when it's likely to be up on the Ducati website?

Earliest you will see it in print (or at least on the net) will be the 14th November AFTER it is unveiled in Milan. Ducati will doubtless unveil it on their own website at that precise moment or at the very least soon after.If like me you have been lusting after even the faintest glimpse of it and scoured the net for any morsel of info or new spy shots, you will know that Ducati are playing the cloak and dagger approach very well indeed, with teasers thrown to the wolves at precise intervals. Some cynics say that even the spy shots are well orchestrated but carefully measured "slip ups". One thing you can bet on though. Once it is unveiled it will be all over the net like a rash within minutes!! Bring it on as I can't wait any longer.

Yep,

Looking forward to seeing the bike when its all finished and unveiled. Im sure it will be a good one. Fingers crossed?

Not many bikes have me going to the dealers just to look at them when they come out but this and the MotoGP road bike may just do sway it for me.

Well spotted, smilo.
I like the idea that it is called "1098" to avoid confusion with the 1099 Tax form, not that it's an extension of the "998" numbering. Yeah, right.

Ducati are quite happy to point out that its called the 1098 (Ten,nine,eight) to follow on the Family line from the 998 and distance itself from the 999.

I'm sure they're happy to continue the 998 numbering tradition. Not so sure they're as happy to admit that is an attempt to distance themselves from the 999, but whatever floats your boat.

I'm actually referring to the US dealer comments in the linked thread.

Van, this antipathy you have for the 999 borders on OCD. Were you once raped by a 999? Just curious.
