Baylisstic 1198 S
The new Ducati 1198 is the most evident example of the philosophy Ducati adheres to in distributing racing technology to us. At the fantastic new Portimao circuit, Ducati also shared another jewel with us in Troy Bayliss showing the way around the track. That’s not everyday stuff, and neither is the Ducati 1198 S.
Baylisstic Ducati 1198 S
The 2009 Ducati 1198 S barks to life like a vicious animal. It’s narrow and agile, like a cheetah, but with the roar of a lion. This contrast makes it into an event in itself just pushing the starter button. So the massive Ducati 1198cc L-twin roars to life in a way that would intimidate even those riding liter in-line fours. The Ducati 1198 S is, put simply, exciting from beginning to end.
