I just took delivery of my 1098 Tricolore after what can only be described as a gut wrenching sleepless 6 months of waiting and crossing off each day of the calendar. My previous ride was an 06 1000 DS and I enjoyed that so much that anything better would be a dream come true. I wasn't wrong This bike is way more comfortable to ride, the power is awesome, and although I don't get the supplied Termis fitted for another couple of hundred kms, the standard cans sound very sweet indeed. The data analyzer and the instrument panel also give hours of fun with all sorts of bells and whistles. As for the look of the bike, my own was the first I have seen in the flesh and let me tell you, there isn't a picture in the world that does it justice. The entire paint work has a fantastic luster and the insignia white flash (looks light grey against white) on the fairing brings out the pure brilliant white in a way that only a true artist would dare to attempt. Riding this machine fills you with confidence because you know it stops as well as it goes. Unlike some others that have purchased 1098 models, I have had no teething problems nor has it stalled on me. It has been better than perfect from day one. An expensive ride sure, but worth every penny. Also, on this model the dry clutch lever doesn't give you a huge left bicep and the data acquisition erase feature lets you scrub the computer. When you ride this toy you know you're on a bike and not just a screaming bumble bee.

The new Ducati 1098 S Tricolore is awesome! I also own a '07 CBR1000RR Repsol, 06 YZF R1 LE #301 & '05 919. This is my first twin and first Italian. After a couple minor hiccups the first day; low battery, loose fairing screws & two stalls; the subsequent 750 miles has been flawless. I've ridden 750cc & 1000cc sport bikes for 30 years, racing 750cc Superbikes in AMA, WERA & CCS 10 of those years, back in the day. Nothing compares to the sensuous experience of riding the Ducati 1098 S Tricolore. The looks, the feel, the sound and the way this machine talks to and encompasses the rider is nothing more than sensuous. The analogy that best compares the toys in the garage is the oriental stable mates are like a Corvette; fast, strong, velvety smooth power and refinement. The 1098 S Tricolore is more like a Lambo or Ferrari, delivering similar performance but with pure brute force and bravado! Viva la Italiano!

I recently took delivery of a 1098S. Here are my thoughts regarding the bike. The 1098S is beautiful to behold in photos, but even more stunning in person. On looks alone, this bike is fantastic. However, any Ducati worth its' salt is not only drop dead sexy, but has the performance that the Ducatisti have come to expect and at this point demand from their bikes. Top end pull on this Italian wonder is amazing. This is my first Superbike, however, is my 6th motorcycle. For performance and fun, nothing I have owned can even touch it. It corners on rails pulls like a cheetah on steroids and sounds absolutely awesome with the full Termi kit. For a full aggressive sportbike, the riding position for me is just right. I can ride for several hours with a big grin. The bike has just been broken in and as with any Ducati gets better and better as it is ridden. This bike is a real treat to ride. Have not had any issues with it.
