The 370.3 lbs. (dry weight) 2011 Ducati 1198 SP creates a dream package by taking everything that the 1198 motorcycle has, including DTC (Ducati Traction Control) , DDA (Ducati Data Analyzer) and the new DQS (Ducati Quick Shift) systems, and adding top-of-the-range Ohlins suspension, lightweight chassis components, a lightweight aluminum fuel tank and slipper clutch.
The high performance, fully adjustable 43mm Ohlins forks, which sport low friction titanium nitride-treated fork sliders, respond with superbike instincts.
The superbike suspension set-up at the rear is complemented with a fully adjustable Ohlins TTX rear shock equipped with a ride enhancing top-out spring and mounted to a single-sided swingarm for outstanding drive and traction.
The 1198 SP weighs in at 2.2 lbs. less than the 2010 1198 S thanks to the beautifully made lightweight fuel tank, which also boosts the motorcycle fuel capacity by 0.66 US gallons to 4.75 total.
The tank is formed in 2mm thick aluminum, brush finished and then painted and clear-coated to create a racing stripe of natural aluminum that accentuates the superbike race tank feel.
The 2011 1198 SP is available in two color schemes. In addition to the traditional Ducati Superbike Red a new diamond black with red Trellis frames, black wheels with signature red pin-striping.
