2010 Ducati 1198R Corse announced


For those who have to have the ‘R’ suffix in the name of their Ducati, the company has announced the Ducati 1198R Corse, which is basically a 1198S with a fancy paintjob. Well, it sure looks absolutely terrific!

‘New’ bits on the 1198R Corse include an aluminium fuel tank, Termignoni exhaust system and a paddock stand. Prices haven’t been announced yet but we’re sure they’ll be stratospheric. For those who want a lighter-on-the-wallet Ducati superbike, there’ll also be a 1198S Corse and an 848 Dark Edition, in matt-black finish. The 1198S Corse is priced at 25,000 euros while the 1198R Corse will set you back by a massive 38,500 euros!

As the owner of a 1098R I hope the bike is finish off. Too many quality control issues. They claim it to be a race bike. That OK, they should not allow them to be road registered. You don't know when something is going to break! Italian engineering is only skin deep. They look great go well but they are very pourly assemble. Thats why they are so expensive, to pay for the warranty! Buy a a japanese bike and spend the money on performance upgrade. Its a better bang for your buck.
