The Ducati 1198 is a sport bike made by Ducati from 2009 to 2011. For the 2011 model year there were two models: the 1198 and 1198SP (replacing the 1198S). The 1198 shared design elements with its predecessor 1098, but has more power and torque, redesigned wheels, lighter headlights, traction control, and lighter fairings (on the S model), and a few minor paint changes. One carryover from its 998 heritage is the distinctive single-sided swingarm.

 

Ducati claim that the 1198/1198 SP makes 170 hp (127 kW), 97.1 lbf·ft (131.6 N·m) torque, and has a dry weight of 173 kg (381 lb). Rear wheel output was tested as 117.75 kilowatts (157.91 hp) @ 9,600 rpm and 90.14 lbf·ft (122.21 N·m) torque at 8,300 rpm, with a wet weight of 200 kg (441 lb). The 1198 R makes a manufacturer claimed 180 hp (134 kW) and 99.1 lbf·ft (134.4 N·m) torque.
