Ducati 1198 S 2010

Change of engine, change of pace, change of name, but not usually. Like every new model in the Ducati family, the 1198 is supported, or rather optimized with a more efficient S version.

What are a few thousand euros more when you leaf through the technical sheet of the 1198 S ?

Once the bamboo has passed, we realize the current level of demand required. Because the S is not just signed suspensions Öhlins instead of Showa, it is also a large on-board electronics to take maximum advantage of 170 hp from the large Italian twin.

At Ducati, S stands for performance (the R is for racing). We are therefore in the presence of a very beautiful bike, designed to flatter the ego and panic the clock – the 1098 R Bayliss L.E will take care of pulverizing it. The information on the engine inflated to 1198 cm3 being detailed in the sheet of the standard 1098 – click here-, we will focus on the on-board electronics.
No, not the fully digital dashboard with a wealth of information and controlled from the handlebars (bar graph or numerical tachometer, speed, 2 trips, selected traction control profile, temperature of the air and coolant, battery voltage, stopwatch, maintenance indicator, … eh oh, look at the road a little …!).
It is not under the eyes but after the grip that the Ducati Corse’s chips and programs kick in. Already on the previous 1098 S, the data acquisition system was present (it is optional on the standard 1198). Today, the S goes much further by adopting the traction control reserved until now for the 1098 R. Called DTC, this system uses the same software developed and used by Ducati Corse for its machines entered in the MotoGP world championship. and Superbike. It offers a choice of eight settings, more with less tolerance, to suit the circuit and driving conditions.

In addition to the electronics, the 1198 S is surprisingly slim for a twin. The suspensions, the new engine and some carbon parts lose 2 kg to the sports car to go down to 169 kg. We can expect a difference of over 4000 euros between the 2 versions of 1198. But when you like to have fun on the track…
