The Ducati 1198 is a sport bike produced by the Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati beginning 2009. Ducati offers three models of the bike: the 1198, 1198S and 1198R.[1]

The 1198 shares identical design elements with its predecessor 1098, but has more power and torque, redesigned wheels, lighter headlights, traction control and lighter fairings (on the S model), and a few minor paint changes.[2] Another carryover from its 998 heritage is a distinctive single-sided swingarm.
