One-off Ducati 1098 Senna

Here at Faster and Faster, even though we don’t follow F1, we have nothing but respect and admiration for the late, great Ayrton Senna. The three-time F1 world champ was also an ardent motorcyclist, and a friend of Claudio Castiglioni himself, who commissioned the MV Agusta F4 1000 Senna in tribute to the great man.

Fans will probably remember that Ducati also built the 916 Senna, in homage to the Brazilian who had already left an indelible mark on the world when he passed away in a racing accident in 1994. And taking up where Ducati left off, one Senna devotee has created the 1098 Senna that you see here. Like other Senna bikes created by Ducati and MV Agusta, this one also carries the ‘S’ logo on its fairing, and is painted gray-black, with red wheels. And it looks awesome…

If it's a 'one-off', how come there are pictures of two different bikes??
