Featured Listing: 2008 Ducati 1098S for Sale

Update 3.13.2019: Price dropped $5k to $20k buy-it-now. Good luck to buyers and seller! Links updated. -dc

Made for just a couple years between 2007 and 2009, the Ducati 1098 was a more conservative approach to their top-flight superbike after the radically-styled 999 threatened to upset Ducati's apple cart. It's almost like the bikes were released out of order, and that the 1098 should have been the direct successor Tamburini's 916, as it had the same slab-sided bodywork, undertail exhaust, single-sided swingarm, and side-by-side headlights. Today's Featured Listing 1098S is typical of many Ducatis, in that it's been lovingly maintained, has low miles, and has had an entire catalog of aftermarket parts thrown at it.

So the 1098 was introduced to reinvigorate Ducati's superbike fortunes and the bike indeed proved very popular and sold well, so why was the bike only made between 2007 and 2009? Well rules changes in WSBK conveniently allowed an increase in displacement to 1200cc and the 1098 was quickly succeeded by the 1198 that displaced... 1198cc. In the early days of World Superbike, v-twins got a decent displacement advantage that kept them approximately equal to the inline fours that had 25% less displacement. But with the inline fours allowed a full 1000cc for the 2007 season, Ducati had to work hard to stay competitive, and there was a noticeable jump in power between the 999 and the 1098, from 138 to 160hp, with the new bike punching out a stout 90 lb-ft of torque.

Ergonomics took a bit of a backward step from the surprisingly user-friendly 999's adjustable seat and pegs, but you do have to suffer for art... This example, as stated earlier, has had a raft of aftermarket parts thrown at it, most notably a set of full carbon-fiber bodywork, including the tank. That's not a wrap, it's actual carbon fiber, thoughtfully lined to prevent damage from modern gas that seems to particularly plague Ducatis of this era. The entire, detailed list can be seen at the end of the seller's listing.

Gentlemen's Express: DUCATI 1098S Full Carbon, Low Miles, Perfect Condition!

My Ducati 1098S Show bike is available for sale. It has been a prized part of my collection, but it’s time to move on to a new platform. This bike is exceptional in every way.  Stunning full carbon body and tank, Galfer Superbike Racing Brakes, Driven Racing Quick Change Sprockets, and much, much more!

The modifications to this bike were targeted in three areas; weight reduction, aesthetics and performance.

This bike draws a crowd everywhere it goes.  Extremely well cared for with full maintenance performed every winter. An impeccable machine with outstanding performance. It’s what all sports bikes should be, and given the extreme weight reduction it went through it still competes with today’s current sports bikes! There was a liberal use of titanium bolts (caliper bolts, rotor bolts, fender bolts etc., and the entire rear racing drive is all aluminum. The bike sits on two new brand new Michelin Pilot Tires and has the Ducati Racing ECU.

With less than 7800 miles, its just broken in. Everything works as it should, you will not be disappointed adding this to your collection or as a rider! This bike was over $35,000 to build (pretax), and comes complete with a Bursig Paddock Stand! All maintenance was just completed (as was done every winter) and is shown below along with the build list.  No rock chips, dings dents or scratches. It also has two Tec mounts – one for radar and one for a cell phone. Currently set up for an Escort 360 Radar unit and Smart Phone Blue Tooth Interface. The radar unit is not included. 

This bike has always been adult ridden, never wheelied (but it wants to), never down, has never seen rain never been raced or tracked.

Anyone that knows this generation of Ducati knows how beautifully the body flows. The exhausts sound awesome as does the open dry clutch. And the braking system is literally being used on superbikes across the country today.

The bike is available for inspection and pick up in East Texas (Tyler) or pickup at our performance shop in Dallas. We will also help prepare the bike for your shipper at your expense. We can recommend a great one we use for domestic white glove shipping, door to door.

Please note an immediate deposit of $500 is due upon purchase with full payment made within 5 business days. 

Serious parties only, please. If you want to discuss the bike, or arrange a viewing, send me a note with your phone number and name and I will contact you that day or feel free to call at (214) 585-3354. 

Thank you for looking, and happy eBaying!

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.

Ital-Lebanese Delight: NEW 2009 Ducati 1098R Bayliss Edition

Ducati has an enviable record when it comes to performance motorcycles. Not only do they succeed on the racetrack, but the bikes from Bologna seem to be at home on the street, in museums, as artwork, and in collections everywhere. This is partly due to the legendary record of wins delivered by the big desmo twins. Some of the biggest names in WSBK and MotoGP have enjoyed success on a Ducati, and with that brings a mythical element to the equation. It certainly does not hurt that styling is an equal partner to horsepower, as is the Italian way. To complete the trifecta, Ducati has always capitalized on the supply-demand ratio, producing limited edition and short production run examples, numbered to prove exclusivity. Many of these specials are based on famed riders for the brand, such as today's beautiful Troy Bayliss Edition 2009 Ducati 1098R.

2009 Ducati 1098R Bayliss Edition for sale on eBay

If you've been following RSBFS for any period of time, you already know that the "R" spec versions of Ducati models are special. Usually bestowed with carbon fiber components and riding on upgraded suspension, the R bikes also usually offer more HP than a standard edition base model. In many cases, the R specification had a different engine entirely: late year, top spec 851s were 888cc, the SP0 versions of the 888 were actually 916 configurations, etc. So too, did the R version of the 1098 herald the coming of the 1198 - at least in displacement. This was good for 180 horsepower, making the 1098R no slouch on the dyno. Traction control was included.

From the seller:
A great opportunity to own a Superbike, a piece of history, which would take pride of place in any serious collection. Ducati saluted Troy Bayliss career with a great special edition -R in 2009, with his race number and Aussie flag livery.

Bayliss Limited Edition has been drenched in carbon fiber and has a special colour scheme designed by Aldo Drudi. comes with rear paddock stand.

No track work, very reluctant sale. Number 355 of 500. This bike still brand new, never registered. available for pick up in Beirut, Lebanon. also available for International shipping

Ducati introduced the Troy Bayliss Edition 1098R to celebrate Troy's swansong. After winning the 2008 WSBK championship Bayliss retired from competition, a 3-time crown winner. The 1098R Troy Bayliss Edition is essentially a R model with some minor additions (carbon fiber pieces and model specific wheels). The major highlights were in the graphics: livery that resembled the WSBK racer, replete with the famous Bayliss 21. With only 500 examples produced worldwide, this was a fitting tribute to one of the greats.

This particular example is claimed new (as in never been registered), wears a reported 150 miles on the odo, and is located in Beruit. Given than only about 150 examples were imported into the US, it is natural to find good examples elsewhere in the world. But certainly this is the first RSBFS post highlighting a bike in this particular region. If I had to nitpick, the pictures are not as high-res or clear as I would like. Still a rare Duc is a rare Duc; the question is really about importation. Prospective buyers need to consider paperwork and shipping as part of the bargain. Starting bid for this one is $22,500 - which is in the money zone compared to most Bayliss LE models we have seen, however it may be a bit high for the opening ask. No bids as of this writing, which gives you time to jump in. Check it out here. Once you look at the details, come back and share your thoughts in our Comments section. If you were in the market for a Limited Edition Ducati, does the Australian-flagged Bayliss model make your top 3? Let us know, and good luck!!

Featured Listing – 2009 Ducati 1098R Bayliss Limited Edition #106/500

Troy Bayliss won the Superbike World Championship for Ducati three times between 2001 and 2008, on three different generations of desmoquattro superbike.  Ducati saluted his career with a great special edition -R in 2009, with his race number and Aussie flag livery.  Fittingly for a homologation special, number 106 of 500 has been improved for track use, but turned under 1,000 miles.

2009 Ducati 1098R Bayliss Limited Edition #106/500

An major update for 2009 was the use of the testastretta "Evoluzione" engine, with a majority of titanium internals making 180 hp and 99 ft.-lbs. torque right off the showroom floor.  The archetypal trellis frame has been beefed up for the occasion, and components are the best that Öhlins, Brembo, and Marchesini had to offer.  Hidden in the carbon fairing are traction control with eight settings, and a data storage and analysis module.

Always intended for the track, the owner Chris has made a few choice mods but fewer miles.  Recent heavy maintenance was done on time not miles, either way ready for a new rider.  Kyle Racing suspension upgrades are advertised as more linear for the monoshock and adjustable for the triple-trees.  Most take-off parts and limited edition swag are included, and an aftermarket set of track bodywork could be negotiated.  Chris's description:

Basics: 983 mi, single owner purchased from Ducati Winchester. #106/500. Waiting on paper title from DMV. Major service was done last year (belts/fluids/etc) and has 25mi since. New Supercorsa front and rear installed at that time.

Mods:
-Dan Kyle triples, rear linkage, and revalved shock w/spring rated for 185# if i remember correctly
-Vortex rearsets
-Clutch cover is aftermarket but I don't remember who made it
-Race exhaust and ecu have always been on the bike
-1/4 turn throttle installed

Stock parts included:
-rearsets
-DDA module but no associated CD or manual
-standard exhaust and ecu
-clutch cover
-Bayliss LE plaque and bike cover
-rear shock w/linkage and triples

Bad:
-nick and small scratches on tank in seat area
-tank has expanded slightly, making contact with the factory steering stabilizer
-belly pan has 1/4" crack on brake side

Though all 1098's are better suited for the track than the road, #106 with Chris's set-up might be even more so.  Most 1098's have low mileage, and -R's even less, but despite a nick here and there, this example's condition is remarkable.  The 1098R is a high plateau in the superbike landscape, the Bayliss commemorative a peak, and this particular LE a great combination of more and less - power to weight, mods to originality, collectibility to miles.  Chris asks $24,500 and can be reached by email - here -.

R Favorite – 2008 Ducati 1098R #70/300

In -R trim, the Ducati 1098 was actually a homologation special with the new 1198cc engine.  In a win-win for the dealerships' best customers, Ducati ceded some trackside modifications to get increased displacement, meaning that the showroom -R came with equipment that the racers would need, and street riders normally could just dream about.

2008 Ducati 1098R for sale on eBay

After the 999 styling debacle, the 1098 returned to classic Ducati superbike design, and a revised cooling system took some of the urgency out of escaping stop-and-go traffic.  180hp made for an instantaneous exit when conditions allowed, and though factory traction control kept the rear wheel under the bike, as the suffix implies the -R is really better suited to the track.  Suspension, brakes and wheels are very high spec, with Ohlins twin-tube monoshock, Brembo 330mm monoblock brakes, and forged Marchesini alloys.

Offered by a specialty auto dealer in St. Louis, this 1098R looks excellent for its 11,000-plus miles.  Normally a few high-end farkles would be expected, but they're really not needed on an -R.  From the eBay listing:

This example is in phenomenal condition. Never having been laid down, all fairings, handlebars, and and levers are original. This bike is still completely in stock form. It runs and rides perfectly. While we are not a motorcycle dealer, the previous owner is a long term local client who owns a buys only top-notch merchandise. This 1098R is said to never have been tracked, and it shows. The condition is as good as it gets.

This -R has been ridden though not on the track, and likely dealer-maintenance could easily be verified.  Presuming this will make a rider happy, some riding and shop visits are probably better for the bike than a long time in the foyer and yearly oil change.  The 1098R offers massive performance in a now-classic trellis frame and carbon fairing, and the race dash offers timing and analysis.  The ask looks right up there until you look at the MSRP, which was double that just ten years ago.  Worth a close look if you have ready access to some fast roads...

Trick Track Toy: Low-Mileage 2008 Ducati 1098R for Sale

To some, it might seem like sacrilege to take a gorgeous, expensive, limited-edition Ducati superbike and turn it into a trackday toy. But if you've got the money to spend on something you can afford to wreck and want the very best, you can't go wrong with today's Ducati 1098R track bike. Honestly, homologation-special Ducatis don't really make practical roadbikes anyway: their uncomfortable ergonomics, race-bred handling, and ridiculous power only makes sense in an unrestricted environment.

History I'm sure will be kind to the Terblanche-styled 999. But at the time, the successor to the storied 916 was a relative sales flop, in spite of it being better in virtually every way. Power was up, electronics were more sophisticated, and the solo seat models even offered adjustable ergonomics. Unfortunately, the restyle went just a bit too far for Ducati's conservative fan base, but Ducati quickly learned their lesson. The 1098 that followed was really Ducati walking back their radical mandate, at least in terms of styling. It's a good-looking bike, but obviously kind of derivative, which was really the whole point after all. It may be my least favorite Ducati superbike, but apparently I'm crazy because I know more than a few guys who love it unreservedly. And you can't argue with the performance: in ultimate, 1098R form seen here, the v-twin pumped out a claimed 180hp, a huge jump over the earlier bike.

A big bump in displacement certainly helped: the 1098R actually had a larger 1198cc engine to exploit the full displacement allowed by World Superbike regulations at the time, an interesting reversal of the more recent Panigale 1299R that displaces less for the same reason... Aside from the bump in displacement that resulted from a larger bore and shorter stroke, the R also used titanium valves and connecting rods to help the bike rev higher. And while the 180hp is basically the minimum required for entry into the literbike club these days, the massive 99 lb-ft of torque should be enough to widen eyes everywhere.

Possibly the most significant aspect of the 1098R, aside from its competition-derived engine, was a race kit exhaust and ECU "intended for off-road use only" that liberated an additional 9hp and also activated the revolutionary Ducati Traction Control system with 8 levels of adjustability. It was relatively crude, compared to today's systems, but was undeniably effective and was used on Ducati's MotoGP and WSBK machines of the time.

After all that, it's almost easy to overlook the bike's trick suspension that included an Öhlins TTX36 twin-tube shock at the rear and represented pretty much the very best roadgoing suspension money could buy at the time. Just 300 examples of the 1098R were imported to the US, priced at $40,000. This one is number 277 of a total 450 produced worldwide and has only 2,800 miles on it, although most of those have accumulated on closed courses, and track miles are kind of like dog years...

THIS BABY IS BAD!

PLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS IS A TRACK BIKE, NOT A STREET BIKE

The 1098 R is the ultimate Superbike. The most advanced, most powerful twin-cylinder motorcycle ever built. It is the product of a team of designers and engineers focussed on one objective only – to win.

The ‘R’ is a race bike, pure and simple. Its competition specification and superior components together with advanced electronics and race-proven chassis technology deliver a level of performance that empowers you with confidence and capability. On the road, it distinguishes you as a connoisseur of high-performance motorcycles. On the track it promotes you to a higher level of riding and closer to realising your dreams.

World Superbike rule changes mean that the road-going ‘R’ version is closer than ever to our factory race bike. The 1098 R is not a replica – it’s the real deal. An incredible 180hp L-Twin Testastretta Evoluzione engine in a race-winning Trellis chassis set-up tips the scales at an unbelievably lightweight 165kg (364lbs) and comes with a race kit that introduces Ducati Corse’s world championship winning traction control system.

Once again, Ducati raises the bar and sets the world standard for sport bikes while turning the heads and racing the hearts of enthusiasts throughout the world.

The 1098 R – Built to Win

If you have a need for speed, then this is your answer. 

This motorcycle was bought stock from the Ducati Dealership in 2012 when it had only 331 miles. The previous owner has upgraded numerous parts over the past few of years. I do have most of the original parts here in a box. The bike does have a couple minor scratches and chips (most have been professionally touched-up). Normal wear items for a track bike. This 1098 has always been serviced at the Ducati Dealership. Please understand; THIS IS A TRACK BIKE, not a street bike. 

The Buy It Now price for this low-mileage, race-ready homologation special is a reasonable $19,995. That's less than other 1098Rs we've seen, but of course it's likely to see a harder life than most and that's going to make it less desirable to collectors. 180hp and primitive traction-control seen here might not sound all that impressive, in this age of the cornering-ABS-equipped, up-and-down quickshifter-ed, traction-controlled, 206hp at-the-wheel Panigale 1299R Final Editions. But this 1098R most definitely is a very significant and collectible homologation-special Ducati from the dawn of the Electronics Era, when rider aids shifted [see what I did there?] from simply improving safety to making riders faster. If you've got the cash to splash, this is a pretty cool way to get your trackday kicks, and a race track actually seems a more appropriate place for a 1098R than collecting dust in some collection.
