Pre-Pani – 2010 Ducati 1198S Corse

Ducati’s 1198 got the last 100cc that the 1098 promised, and the S’s 170 hp made traction control standard ( and required ) equipment. This Limited Edition #50 comes to you in Corse colors and excellent condition.

2010 Ducati 1098S Corse for sale on eBay


Ducati returned to the 916/996 side-by-side headlights with the 1098, in a slightly swept-back and cat-eyed way.  The 1198cc testastretta EVO adjusted valve angles which improved running and allowed valve adjustments to be extended to 12K miles.  Some interesting race-derived parts are on board, like the magnesium valve covers, eliptical throttle bodies, and short-skirt pistons.  The 1198 kept the dry clutch while the more streetable 848 went wet.  Brembo brakes are XL at 330mm, and Öhlins suspension is multi-adjustable.  Electronics are track-oriented with an on-board data analysis package and eight-level traction control.


With just over 4,000 miles, there isn’t a great deal of history for this KC native, though it’s not a one-owner machine.  The pictures aren’t great, but beside the tail-neatening, no farkles or damage are apparent.  From the eBay auction:

In mint condition. Adult ridden.  Always garage stored. New battery. If you have never owned a Ducati superbike, let me assure you they are the most powerful and “torquie” machine you will ever ride.  I have owned many metric superbikes over the years and none come close to the amount of fun and power this bike possesses.  Italy has a reputation for incredible cars and motorcycles and this one will not disappoint.  No test rides, but Ill be happy to run her and show you everything works great.  This is the special edition with all the bells and whistles offered. It comes with factory alarm system, tons of carbon fiber, aluminum tank, racing adjustable suspension, Ducati 7 step traction control, original manuals, the list  goes on and on.


The monocoque Panigale was right around the corner, so for a trellis-frame superbike, the 1198S can be considered a high peak.  If an inspection bears it out, this one is basically just broken in.  And while it might be a hoot on just the right road, a track day is really a better place to learn the intricacies of a Ducati Corse.

Forget about it! The 4th 1198s Corse Edition for sale!

2010 Ducati 1198s Corse Edition with 200 miles for sale in Rhode Island.

OK, I’m officially taking the 1198s Corse Edition off the list of rare sports bikes!  This is the 4th 1198s Corse Edition that we have listed within the span of 3 weeks…

2010 DUCATI 1198S CORSE SE Special Edition.  No reserve auction. This bike was bought locally at Razee Motorcycles.  New retail is $24,995. Never driven in the rain.. Always heated garage kept, on a battery tender. Has only 200 miles. Never taken to a track day. Never been laid down. Never even been dirty. The bike is in perfect shape, no scratches, No dents or any other defects noted. This bike is pristine shape.
The bike is Adult owned (I’m 51), is still in it’s break in period and hasn’t been over 5,000 rpm. . This is the Corse S with traction control and data logging. Oversize aluminum tank, Ohlins suspension, forged Marchisini wheels and factory Corse graphics. Comes from the factory with 2 ECU’s and two sets of pipes; the race (installed) as well as the factory exhaust and computer, passenger rear seat, and rear riding pegs. Included with the bike is the Ducati Rear stand that engages the hollow axle of the single sided swingarm.
The factory race computer runs open loop allowing full control with a power commander. There is a new Power commander V usb wired to the harness with a “zero” map installed. It’s functional but no calibrations have been loaded. I also have all the manuals, extra key and all paperwork. Included with the bike is an optional Ducati factory alarm system (which they no longer make) that has not yet been installed. I have the clear title (no loans or leans) in hand.
According to the seller, this bike is build # 240 (out of how many Ducati doesn’t say). We have already listed three of these before, so I’ll skip on in the introduction, but you can read about them here.  Instead, here’s a video of Cycle World giving the 1198s Corse Edition a good spanking at Motorland Aragon (sounds like a something out of Lord of The Rings):

The starting price of $18,000 sounds a bit high compared to others previously listed, but this one does have the lowest miles out of all of them (200 miles?!), but in any case, to drool over the nice pics (just make sure the keyboard is covered).

Yet another 2010 Ducati 1198S Corse Edition (#75) for sale!

2010 Ducati 1198S Corse Edition – #75 – with 2100 miles for sale.

Is nothing sacred anymore? Does the word “rare” and “limited” mean anything anymore?  I though I found a gem with the first 1198s Corse Edition, and I thought it was pure luck that I found another one on ebay, but a 3rd 1198s Corse Edition all within a span of 2 weeks?!  You got to be kidding me:

For sale a limited edition 2010 Ducati 1198S, this one is number 75. Bike has 2100 miles. This special edition comes with Aluminum tank, traction control, carbon fiber front fender, forged wheels, Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes, Termignoni exhaust, rear stand, and special paint job. New Michelin Pilot Pure tires with only 10 miles. This bike is adult riden and maintained. Store in a heated and cooled shop. Bike is shown with aftermarket windscreen but I have the stock one with number plate and exhaust (never used) that go with the bike. The rear stand was also part of the Corse Edition. This bike is in show room condition.

The asking price of $19,500 is high compared to the ones posted earlier.  As someone commented before, the new 2011 1198SP – with a host of upgraded features and specs – retails for (only) $21,995.  If I were in the market for a 1198s Corse Edition, I’d be looking at around $15,000 or so.  But then again, I’m known for being a cheapskate.

It’s pouring Ducati 1198s! Second 1198s Corse Edition (#007) in a week!

2010 Ducati 1198s Corse Edition #007 with super low miles

You all know what they say about rain… this is second 1198s Corse Edition that has come up for sale within a week.  As I mentioned in my previous 1198s Corse post, I think the 1198s Corse is one of the best looking newer Ducatis (and no, the Diavel isn’t one of them!) and the brushed aluminum tank is the highlight for the bike.  What’s cool about this particular one compared to the other listed earlier:

-#007 (if you’re a James Bond fan, which I am!)

– even lower mileage (1,176 miles?!)

– a set of tire warmers from Ducati, two Ducati lawn chairs (ooo-er!) , a Ducati EZ up tent (DOUBLE ooo-er!) and a special Ducati titanium Swiss made wrist watch

2010 DUCATI 1198S CORSE SE Special Edition, (#007)… LOW Number!!!  This bike was bought locally at Pandora Motorsports of Chattanooga,TN. The first scheduled maintenance was done at Pandora.. The bike is ADULT owned, Never driven in the rain.. Always garage kept, covered and on a battery tender. Has only 1176miles.. Never taken to track days. Never been laid down. The bike is in perfect shape, no scratches, No dents or any other defects noted.. This bike is pristine shape. I love this bike from the way it looks, to the way it rides and especially the way it sounds..  New this bike retails for $24,995. Included with the bike is the Ducati Rear stand in the pictures, as well as a set of tire warmers from Ducati, two Ducati lawn chairs (see pics), a Ducati EZ up Tent (off course its RED!) [we all know that red tents are the fastest! – ph] and a special Ducati titanium Swiss made wrist watch (see Pics). As well as the factory exhaust and computer, Passenger rear seat, and rear riding pegs..I also have all the manuals, extra key and all paperwork.

I’m a sucker for limited editions and this one ticks all the right boxes for me.  Too bad that a.) I’m cheapskate  b.) I don’t have another $20,000 to spend on bikes (not without serious consequences anwyay), or else I’ll be scheming how to ship this one back to Hong Kong. Come on Powerball!

Mama mia – Limited Edition 2010 Ducati 1198S Corse!

2010 Ducati 1198s Corse Limited Edition with 2,300 miles!

It’s no secret that I’m not a big fan of the styling on the newer Ducatis, but I have to say that the 1198S Corse Edition looks salivatingly sexy with that brushed aluminum tank and Corse graphics (very simple, but effective) – I mean, just look at that thing!

Well, it just so happens that there’s one for sale on eBay right now. My bad for posting this so late, but there’s still 1 day and 20+ hours to go, so if you’ve been looking for one of these, (and come back to read my babblin’ after you’ve placed a bid)!

2010 Ducati 1198 S 2010 Ducati 1198S Corse Edition in perfect condition – #321, with 2300 miles. Comes standard with full Ohlins suspension, traction control, and larger custom aluminum tank (unique to this year’s bike). The ‘S’ rides on beautiful black 7-spoke lightweight, forged-aluminium, machine-finished wheels by Marchesini. Finally also has the unique Corse graphics treatment not found on any other 1198 bar the R edition costing thousands more!Comes with both original pipes and ECU and the Termignoni exhaust and race ECU! Single Swingarm rearstand also included!

From what I understand, the 1198S Corse Edition differs from the standard 1198s in the following ways:

– larger 18L “factory style” aluminum fuel tank (tank capacity on the 1198S is 15L)
– “race kit”, which includes Termignoni carbon fiber slip-ons, a dedicated ECU, and a Ducati Performance rear paddock stand
– lighter dry weight of 168kg (1198S: 169kg) due to the aluminum fuel tank
– special Corse graphics
– limited edition with numbered plaque on the top triple clamp

I have seen one of these in flesh and I must say they are GOR-JUS! Out of all the newer Ducs, these are pretty darn cool.  And with 170hp on tap, traction control, and an equipment list that reads like a WSBK spec sheet, they are for sure darn good to ride as well.

Beautiful Italian Exclusivity: 2009 Bimota DB7

For Sale: 2009 Bimota DB7

Another day, another piece of artwork from Rimini. This is what keeps me going in to work every day; if I couldn’t dream about owning all of the bikes on my bucket list (of which this is one), there would really be no point in getting out of bed in the morning. Since I am the type to quietly admire art, I will let the seller and his pictures do all of the talking.

From the seller:
Sad to say, but I have decided to part with my DB7 so I can move on to the next toy. I have enjoyed the bike as well as preserved it. Of all the bikes I have owned (including a Desmosedici, 999R, 999S, 1198S Corse, MV Agusta F4, Aprilia RSV4 Factory, etc) this is by far the most refined amazing superbike of the bunch. Pick the best from the best, machine it and bolt it together by hand and, voila, you have the DB7. The handling is awe-inspiring! The linear power delivery is never abrupt and is always right where you want it allowing entering and exiting turns fast – a confidently controlled experience.

UNFORTUNATELY, the one thing it does not like is gravel in a friend’s driveway when you are trying to avoid being hit by a car!! This resulted in a low-speed low-side and scratching up the fairings with a whole 263 miles on the bike! Good thing they are carbon fiber as there was no structural damage. I did take this opportunity to change the color of the bike. The shade of red it was originally painted did not match the frame. I believe during the original conception of the bike, the frame and the fairings matched. Now the fairings are painted Ducati Red and Ducati Pearl White. The frame and fairings now match and greatly improve the looks of the bike. While I was getting the color combo fixed, I took this opportunity to change the timing belt cover to carbon fiber, added a billet red pressure plate, added a speedy moto water pump cover, installed a custom windscreen from Australia, modified and cleaned up the tag bracket and added CRG levers and better grips. I also had the exhaust black ceramic coated and installed red anodized tips.There is still some small defects in the clear of the fender and nose that I have included in the pictures of the bike.

From the seller:
I have took some of the reviews and information available on the bike and put a nice piece together below:

Bimota is the sort of archetypal family-owned Italian company that puts out exclusive hand-built luxury machines. Think Lamborghini and Maserati in the car world and you’ll have an idea.

Nearly 10 years since we saw the debut of Bimota’s last liquid-cooled Superbike, the SB8R. (The abbreviation reads: Suzuki Bimota 8R (TL1000R) in the same way as DB7 is Ducati Bimota 7. The numbers stand for the number of models with a Suzuki or Ducati engine in the hand-built frames.) The latest chapter in Bimota development is the new DB7. Powered by the incredible Ducati 1098 Testastretta Evoluzione engine, the DB7 matches the performance of the Ducati Superbike engine with the innovative Bimota chassis concepts. Bimota technology and innovation has never been more beautiful.

Technical innovation, handcrafting and unrestricted component quality have always been the primary directive and soul of Bimota. Since the rebirth of Bimota in 2003, these priorities remain at core of the company’s philosophy and take form in the new generation models DB5, DB6 Delirio and incredible Tesi 3D. The objective in the development of Bimota DB7’s newest Superbike was to create a motorcycle that is light and powerful with superior road manners, while remaining distinctly Bimota in style and attitude. Furthermore, the new Bimota was to be as capable on the track as it is on the street. With so many Superbike manufacturers, there are also many advanced and extremely capable motorcycles. So for Bimota, simply being fast and race inspired is not enough, a Bimota must offer something more, much more.


Bimota is the only factory in the world allowed to place Ducati’s gem of a 1099cc V-Twin engine in its own chassis. Just to give you an idea of just how exclusive this motorcycle is, Bimota only plans to build 300 DB7s per year, which will be about 50% of the planned overall production in 2008. The eight-valve, 1099cc desmo twin is cut from Ducati’s 1098 and pasted into Bimota’s typically atypical steel-tube skeleton. Salient particulars for the 138-pound lump are the same as you’d find in a 1098S. The 104.0 x 64.7mm cylinders use 12.5: 1 compression to deliver an alleged 160 bhp at 9750 rpm, just under the 10,700-rpm rev ceiling. Elliptical bores in the Marelli throttle bodies flow 30 percent more than an equivalent round inlet shape, which accounts for five of those horses. Bimota have modified the big V-Twin with a different and more efficient side-mounted exhaust system and added a Walbro ECU. This has resulted in a claimed 30% boost in torque between 4-7000 rpm compared to the Ducati 1098. The extra torque in this area of the powerband allows a fantastic corner exit with a wide-open throttle.


The DB7 introduces a new hybrid oval tube trellis frame that utilizes lightweight machined plates in its design. The same engineering solution is used in the unique rear swingarm for a package that not only delivers rigidity and predictable handing, but also lends a harmonized technical look to the bike. The Testastretta Evoluzione twin works harder as a stressed chassis member than it does in Ducati’s 1098. Oval-section 50 x 30mm chromoly tubes form a more rigid lattice than round stock using the same 1.5mm wall thickness. The stiffer skeleton let Bimota shift the engine 12mm higher and 8mm farther vs. its location in a Ducati, shifting weight forward to enhance front tire grip. Side plates are milled from aircraft-spec, Italian Aticorodal 100 aluminum. The net result is 2.6 pounds lighter than Ducati’s 1098 frame.


Upper and lower fork crowns are billet machined and mount fully adjustable Marzocchi Corse forks with 43 mm sliders with DLC (diamond like coating) treatment for smooth and predictable reaction to the tarmac. Bimota uses a 43mm Marzocchi inverted fork, complete with low-friction nitride-coated sliders. Rake is set at 25 degrees, buffered by 3.9 inches of trail. Stout billet triple-clamps keep everything in line. Constructed from the same oval-section tubing as the rest of the chassis, the DB7’s swingarm cues a fully adjustable ExtremeTech 2v4 shock via a 7 percent rising-rate linkage. There’s 3/4-inch worth of ride-height adjustment in there as well.

Wheels, Brakes and Body

Russian Magaltech 10-spoke forged-aluminum wheels wear Continental Race Attack radials: 120/70-17 front and 190/55-17 rear. MotoGP-spec Brembo braking hardware can slow things down in a big hurry. Billet-aluminum Monobloc four-piston, four-pad front calipers grab 320mm floating rotors via hydraulic input from an adjustable billet lever and radial master-cylinder. A two-piston Grimeca caliper pairs with a 220mm floating rear rotor.

The top fairing is formed of structural carbon fiber and supports the instruments and headlamp, eliminating the need for a separate subframe. The rear tail section is also made of structural carbon fiber and also benefits from the same elimination of a separate subframe. Combined they significantly reduce the overall weight of the bike.

The digital instrument panel combines analog and digital readouts. The unit records 20 lap times, and top speed each lap.

The narrow fuel tank, with a capacity of 26 liters, has been sculpted to be extremely thin between the legs and matches perfectly the seat to maximize rider control and comfort. With a seat height of only 800mm, riders of all heights can enjoy the performance of the DB7.

Combine all of the DB7 innovations and you have a bike that weighs-in at an incredible class leading 170 kgs. The DB7 bristles with fine CNC machined details including the rear frame plates, engine mounts foot rests, rear swingarm sections, chain adjuster plates and both clutch and front brake levers. The new DB7 charms the heart by combining characteristic Bimota style cues with uncompromised attention to details and unparalleled fit and finish.

There is also a video walkaround of this particular bike:

How about a few more pictures:

The good news here is that you have an honest seller who is willing to point out the warts on his baby. For so few miles this bike has seen a bit of action. I’m also not sure I’m in love with the exhaust treatment, but then again the HUGE titanium can on the stocker is not exactly subtle. But with that willing desmoquattro motor and the sublime handling of that artful Bimota chassis, who wouldn’t be just a little bit tempted?

The BIN for this piece of sculpture is a cool $26,000. The seller is willing to entertain offers, however, so there might still be a gorgeous DB7 in somebody’s future. History shows past DB7s to all live above the $23k asking price ceiling, so while $26k might be a bit high for a bike with known damage history, it is certainly not absurd. Anyone score large wads of Christmas cash? For more information and pictures, click the link and jump over to the auction. Good luck!

Featured Listing: 2007 Ducati SportClassic Sport 1000S for Sale

Update 8.24.2017: Seller has notified us that this bike is sold. Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

Some bikes take years to become collectible: 1980s GSX-Rs could be had for basically peanuts up until very recently, when sportbike fans realized that very few nice examples of these iconic machines were left. But these were made as recently as 2009 and, after a brief period of time where they sat unsold on showroom floors, the Ducati SportClassics began to rapidly appreciate. In fact, it almost seemed like all it took for values to take off was for Ducati to discontinue the line… Is the custom work and low-mileage condition of today’s Featured Listing Sport 1000S worth what the seller is asking? Time will tell, but there’s no doubt that this show-winning machine is one of the nicest examples out there.

Whether you chose the Paul Smart, Sport 1000, or GT1000 SportClassics all got the same drivetrain: Ducati’s well-developed air and oil-cooled 1000DS engine with twin plugs and a claimed 92hp. It was the perfect package for the mature sportbikers Ducati was targeting, and the SportClassics clearly had one eye on the future and one on the past. This bike is actually the Sport 1000S that took the Paul Smart’s place in the SportClassic lineup once that limited edition machine ceased production. The Paul Smart was a monoposto, a result of the unusual tubular swingarm that had its monoshock offset on the left side, but the Sport 1000S used an even more retro dual-shock setup that allowed you to take a passenger. Unless of course you decided to replace the stock exhaust with a full titanium system from Zard…


If you’re a fan of originality, this particular Sport 1000S might not be your bag, but the paintwork is appropriately evocative and the classic Ducati logo looks great on the tank. The original half-faired bodywork suggests bikes like the classic 750SS, but I love the way that titanium header pipe passes through the fairing lowers on this setup. Certainly the upgraded front and rear Öhlins suspension components should provide impressive handling if you decide to risk your investment on a racetrack or winding back road.

The seller is asking $27,500 for this machine, which is obviously big money for a SportClassic that isn’t a Paul Smart. But values for all the SportClassics have been rising steadily since they were discontinued, and if you’re looking for one with low mileage to add to your collection, it’s hard to beat this example: it has just 1,500 miles from new and has been upgraded with a laundry list of quality aftermarket parts. Obviously, it’s not completely original, which may deter some collectors, but it appears that the modifications can be reversed if you prefer. Contact Ken via email with your interest:
