The Ducati 1198S is a higher performance version of the 1198.
It featured all the high-spec components of the 1198, including
the 1198 cc, L-twin producing 170 hp, and 97 lb-ft (131 Nm)
of torque @ 8000rpm.
However the Ducati 1198S benefitted from several lightweight
carbon fiber components, 7-spoke GP replica Marchesini forged
and machined wheels, revised fully adjustable Ohlins suspension,
traction control and Ducati's proprietary data analysis system.
In 2011, the Ducati 1198S was replaced by the 1198
It doesn't really need to be said, but the Ducati 1198S is a
very competent road and track machine which is covered in top
shelf components. But all those lightweight beautifully engineered
parts come at a price. And it isn't cheap.
