The Rever Corsa 1198 Strada makes us wish we were doing something that allowed us to earn more money. What an awesome bike...!
A lot of people go through life dreaming of the day when they’ll be able to afford a stock Ducati 1198. And then there are those lucky few who actually buy that 1198 and spend another few thousands on the bike to take its performance to a whole new level. For those fortunate few, Rever Corsa are building 10 units of the Ducati 1198 Strada, each of which will be priced anywhere between US$57,000-140,000 (depending on the parts you choose).
As you would expect, each 1198 Strada will be fitted with the best, most expensive components, including full carbonfibre bodywork, carbon wheels, Ohlins fork and shock, Brembo brakes with radial-mount monobloc callipers and an Akrapovic exhaust system. The ‘standard’ 1198 Strada is more than 10 kilos lighter than the stock 1198 and packs about 10 more horsepower.
For those with even more money to blow, Rever Corsa are doing an ‘extreme’ 1198 Strada, which gets a full titanium chassis (original dimensions are retained), carbonfibre steering yoke and a supercharger that boosts power up to 200bhp. If only we could have one of these bikes all to ourselves, just for a few hours. Nicely paved twisty mountain roads where there are no SUVs, sunny weather, no speed limits and a 1198 Strada Extreme. Oooohhhh… :-)
