Ducati reveal the new 1098 streetfighter … and I love it!
Hitting our streets in Spring 2009 the 1098 naked is bound to make riders around the UK forget about the credit crunch and trade in their current ride for the new kid on the block!
It looks as if the boffins at Ducati have taken the old 1098 and stuck it in an X-ray machine and thought … “lets make one that looks like that instead!”
The 1099cc desmo testastretta engine delivers 155hp which isn’t too bad when you consider the frame is mainly tubular steel, there’s also room for the Mrs on the back, if she can hold on!
The L-twin provides a hell of a lot of muscle, topped with enough torque to make you sit up and take notice! The longer swing arm is equipped to make sure the bike loses none of its superb riding capabilities.
