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.

If you haven’t already placed a bid yet after seeing that first photo, .
