2011 Ducati 1098R



Viewing by appointment only.

Hailed by many as the last ‘proper’ homologation bike by Ducati, The limited production 1098R was so far removed from the standard 1098 – Capacity, engine, chassis, just about every component on the 1098R when compared to the 1098 road bike was altered as Ducati needed to get back into winning ways on the track.

The 1098R also brought the Superbike sector the ‘future’, being the first production bike to be fitted with properly advanced traction control, which is now commonplace.

Excellent original example
Just 516 miles
Original spare key
All booklets
Freshly belt serviced
Superb condition bodywork
Currently fitted with the Carbon fibre ‘Termi’ pipes (standard road pipes are with the bike as well)

Absolutely stunning example, ready to either be enjoyed or tucked away as part of a collection.


The Ducati 1098R was hailed as an absolute masterpiece upon release, some argue the best bike Ducati has built.

Built in limited numbers so that Ducati could race it in World Superbike, the 1098R formed the basis of their F08 factory racer.
In fact, at the time of release, the 1098R was the closest a road bike had ever been to a race bike, thanks in part to the ever tightening rules in the World Championship. Aside from different pistons & a smattering of detail changes the 1098R was pretty much exactly the same as the bike Troy Bayliss rode in 2008. The 1098R was also the first road bike to be fitted with full traction control.

Being so far removed from the standard 1098, the 1098R cemented itself as one of the all time greats & is now in high demand among collectors & enthusiasts alike.

Supplied with both set of pipes & all the usual 1098R accessories, this example is either ready to be enjoyed thanks to a fresh belt service, or indeed ready to be added to a collection.

Body & Paintwork

What can we say…..

Absolutely stunning, the 1098R is an incredible looking bike.
The iconic Red, coupled with the lashings of carbon fibre, finished with the Gold Ohlins & Gold Marchesini wheels.

With such low miles, the bike is exactly as you would expect it to be, lovely condition throughout with no damage.
The wheels, mirrors, lights, seat…. all in superb order.

A truly iconic & collectible Ducati of the era, presented beautifully.

Interior & Trim

All trims/switchgears are in superb condition.


A bike of this age & era with 180bhp!!!

Compared to the standard 1098, the engine is lighter, stronger, with a bigger bore & stroke, taking the capacity up to 1198.4cc.
Peak power was a claimed 180bhp, (186bhp with the carbon fibre racing Termis and race ECU fitted).
The torque figure is also might impressive at 99.1ftlb!

Having just had a belt service this example is ready to go.

We have currently drained the fuel from the bike & removed the battery, predicting that the bike will likely go into a collection with such low miles, obviously we can easily & quickly have the bike up & running should a buyer choose so.

Running Gear

As can be seen in the pictures, all running gear is in superb order.

The 1098R is covered in exceptional equipment, just as any limited run Ducati is, but the 1098R has the full works thrown at it by the Ducati team & these really are exceptional to ride.
