The Ducati 1198SP is the replacement bike for the 1198S - it replaced it for the final year of production in 2011.

Upgrades for the 1198SP included electronic quickshifter, an Ohlins TTX rear shock, slipper clutch and a lighter but larger 18-litre fuel tank.

The result is a machine which is just 1 kg (2.2 lbs) lighter, but the quickshifter and new clutch make the biggest difference, make it much easier to get the best out of.

The "SP" (Sport Production) logo means something special to Ducati. It was first introduced on the legendary Ducati 851 to identify bikes which were used in the development of racing machines in the Sport Production championship, the forerunner of the current Super Stock. Now as then, "SP" identifies standard production models that are kitted out to make them "track ready".

And the track is where the Ducati 1198 SP really comes into its own. It works on the road, but the hardcore riding position isn't suited for long distances.

In terms of reliability the 1198, including the SP model have proved to be very good, aided by the fact it is covered in high-spec components from some of the best suppliers like Brembo, Ohlins and Marchesini.
