Ducati 1098S: Martini Racing replica rocks!


The coolest paintjob in the world? We think so...

Via MC24

All right, so it’s been replaced with the 1198S but the Ducati 1098S is still a pretty special motorcycle. And this one-off special Martini Racing replica ups the cool factor another few notches. The bike weighs 163kg dry and packs 175 horsepower – numbers which speak for themselves.

The Martini Ducati 1098S is fitted with racing cams and pistons, titanium con-rods, lightweight crank, magnesium alloy wheels, WSBK-spec gearbox, ¼ turn quick-throttle, Ohlins suspension components, Termignoni exhaust with carbon mufflers and lots of carbonfibre bodyparts. And yes, we really do think this is one of the coolest Ducatis we’ve ever seen...
