Top 100 Motorcycles last10 year:1- Ducati 1098

(1)  Ducati 1098  year 2007


The Ducati 1098's Testastretta Evoluzione is the most powerful production V-twin motorcycle engine ever, makeing 160bhp and has 92ftlb of torque at 8000rpm. The Ducati 999 Testastretta engine was completely redesigned from top to bottom and using all the knowledge Ducati have gained from racing motorcycles in World Superbikes and MotoGP. Pretty much every component in the Ducati 1098's engine has been changed and the bike has a huge increase in power from 3500rpm all the way to the redline over the 999.

The Ducati 1098's build quality, fit and finish all look sublime so far. But this motorcycle is so new it's hard to judge reliability and durability, we'll have to reflect over a year's hard use for that, which is exactly what MCN is planning to do with it's Ducati 1098 test motorcycle.

The Ducati 1098 is exquisite. The forks combined with the standard Pirelli tyres allow you to explore the far side of leaning and make you recalibrate what you thought was possible on a motorcycle. The Ducati 1098's forks give amazing feedback, and combine that with a really neutral chassis that’s not quite as quick to turn from side-to-side as some of the Japanese 1000cc motorcycle and you’ve got probably the best handling 1000-class road motorcycle ever. You can be clumsy with it, hang-off or not hang-off, it’s your choice and the Ducati 1098 will do exactly what you tell it, letting you bounce from kerb-to-kerb


Although the Ducati 1098 is the basic version, Ducati's new dream motorcycle still isn't wanting for much, certianly not in terms of sports bike goodies. Suspension, brakes etc are all premier league on the Ducati 1098 and then there's the sublime datalogger dash and exquisite styling
