Italian manufacturer Ducati has prided themselves on doing things their way.

From its exhaust note to its handling characteristics, the Ducati 1098S offers its own unique flavor in a market dominated by cheaper, more commonplace machines.

Let’s take a look at what makes the Ducati 1098S so unique.

The Ducati 1098S: The Hardware at the Heart of the Machine

The Ducati 1098S boasts some gorgeous bodywork and slick design cues, but its real masterpiece lies beneath those pretty plastic panels. Underneath is a tubular steel trellis frame optimized for stiffness, and an L-twin engine produces 160 horsepower and 90.4 lb-ft of torque, routing exhaust fumes through a lightweight 2-1-2 under seat system that culminates with twin stainless steel mufflers.

A six-speed gearbox with straight cut gears is mated with a dry clutch, and MotoGP style instrumentation provides an all-digital light show that includes a nifty ambient temperature gauge.

Stopping power is provided by dual, radially-mounted 4-piston 330mm Brembo monobloc front brakes and 245mm, 2-piston rear brakes, which are situated near a sculpted single-sided aluminum swingarm that leaves the other side of the rear wheel exposed.

1098S Extras: Premium Components for Serious Riders

Utilizing the already capable 1098 as a platform, Ducati’s 1098S incorporates premium components designed to satisfy the most dedicated sportbike riders, at a cost of $4,000 over the price of the standard 1098 (which has been bumped up a grand to $15,995 for 2008.) Upgraded 43 mm Öhlins FG511 forks use low friction Titanium Nitride-treated sliders while incorporating a steering damper, and the Öhlins 46PRC rear shock is engineered to offer strong dampening alongside decent ride quality.

Marchesini forged and machined wheels shave 4 lbs of mass, and a carbon fiber fender and seat cooling ducts bring the total dry weight to 377 lbs (versus 381 for the standard 1098.)

On the Road: Riding the Ducati 1098S

From the moment you start up the Ducati 1098S, you realize it’s not like other bikes: between the chug-a-lug of its torquey twin as it idles and the roar of its rev, this engine screams to the bike’s sporting nature.

Click the kickstand up, snick the foot lever into gear, and let out the clutch and you’ll be treated to instant torque that pulls from seemingly no rpms whatsoever. The 1098S wants to move so insistently that just a touch of throttle is required to get it rolling. Clutch slip is required for the first few miles per hour, and once engaged, first gear goes a surprisingly long way.

The L-twin produces both strong low end grunt and high end power, and torque peaks at 8,000 rpm while horsepower maxes out at 9,750 rpm. The 1098S offers an involving ride that demands the rider’s complete and undivided attention. Throttle response is sharp, handling is extremely crisp, and even the brakes respond with super sensitivity; it seems that merely thinking about stopping actuates the lever and scrubs off speed, the brakes are so strong. It takes time to get used to the ease with which the 1098S decelerates, and once you get used to these outstanding binders, it’s hard to go back to other bikes.

All of these components work together to provide a ride that is more unrelentingly focused than sportbikes at a lower price point.

The Price of Performance

What the Ducati 1098S achieves in performance, it detracts in everyday livability. This is, after all, a hyperfocused ride intended to be track ready, but with the added benefit of wearing license plates. The seat padding is thin, the riding position aggressive, and the 1098S’s abilities are demanding. The bike responds so well to input, in fact, that it seems to beg for a higher level of smoothness than many casual riders are capable of– and whether or not that’s your cup of tea is an entirely individual question.

Ride it with confidence, and this Duc starts asking for more: greater speed, steeper lean angles, harder braking. Clutch effort is high and the shifter works well, and the bike’s 377 lb dry weight really starts to shine when it’s tossed around the twisties, enabling it to feel agile and eager to lean, like a much smaller bike. Though still taut and tightly sprung, the reduced unsprung weight of the lighter Marchesini wheels not only makes the S variant more willing to turn, it actually improves ride quality.

Conclusion

And that’s really what this Duc boils down to: a sportbike that takes the task of performance very seriously, and achieves its track-based goals extremely well. When the 1098S is going fast, it feels like nothing else.  While it might be a bit too hardcore for those seeking anything less than undistilled performance, the Ducati 1098S is a beautifully thrilling ride for speed hungry adrenaline junkies.

M797 Monster

797 Ducati Monster

Red: $ 9,295*    White $ 9,395*    Dark Stealth:  $ 9,395*

*M.S.R.P (not including Freight, Assembly, Document Fee, service, Tax, Title, License, and Tag)

The new Monster 797 finally brings the iconic Monster spirit and Ducati values within everyone’s reach. Sporty, compact, essential but also sophisticated and contemporary, the Monster 797 provides a gateway to the Ducati world, for those looking for an easy, intuitive ride as well as sheer sports enjoyment.

Every element has been very carefully designed and executed to fully express the Monster spirit. The riding position, chassis and 75 hp Desmodue twin-cylinder engine instil confidence right from the first miles. The Monster 797 is the ideal bike for those seeking carefree enjoyment, on any road and in any situation.

The clean, slim line of the Monster 797 enhances those designer elements that are in fact structural components, such as the trellis frame created as one single piece. An essential but sophisticated bike, where every element expresses a high level of stylistic and technical research while retaining a freshness that makes it easy for anyone to ride.

Dual front brakes with ABS, Pirelli tires and fat Kayaba forks are but some of the features included in what looks to be the closest to an “entry level” ride that the Monster family is ever liable to get. I’ve been eager to take a look at this new ride ever since it was revealed at the Milan show, and what I see so far does not disappoint. Join me while I delve into the details to see what Ducati has in store for us.

Design

DNA from the original “Monster” survives the passage of time from 1992 all the way into 2017 in the new Monster 797. This is very apparent in the tank shape and overall panache, and even the exposed frame hints at the original. A seriously chopped front fender leads the way over a fat front tire with beefy front forks that lends the impression of great strength and there’s a round headlight can that makes yet another connection to the past.

“DNA from the original “Monster” survives the passage of time from 1992 all the way into 2017 in the new Monster 797.”

In spite of the lack of pullback in the bars, the relaxed-jockey footrests and seat position form a rider’s triangle that allows for a relaxed, upright riding posture far removed from the typical sportbike posture. As always with this family, the exposed frame serves as a crucial design element, so it’s no surprise that Duc shoots it in red paint to offset it against the blackout engine components, you know, just in case it was too subtle where it runs uncovered from steering head to subframe.

The flylines are classic Il Mostro as they tumble down to a deep-scoop saddle that sits at only 31.69 inches off the ground, which is good news for the shorter riders out there. The stadium p-pad tapers off to nothing ahead of the minimal rear fender and tag holder, and while that windtunnel-tested ass end makes for a nice, racy touch.

Beyond that, I gotta’ say I’m loving the looks of this new Monster. It’s got the same beefy-yet-wirey look one expects, but the size and displacement make it less intimidating than some of its big brothers.

Chassis

A Trellis frame pulls double duty as the skeleton that holds it all together and as an aesthetic feature essential to the family look. Tubular-steel members make up the welded assembly with a yoke-style, cast-aluminum swingarm to mount the rear wheel. The swingarm comes in a boomerang shape that not only looks edgy, but the apex serves as a convenient spot to mount the short, coil-over rear shock.

Steering-head geometry trends toward the agile end of the spectrum with a 24-degree rake and 3.54 inches of trail, and the 43 mm, inverted Kayaba forks push the wheelbase out to 56.5 inches. Symmetrical, 17-inch, cast-allow wheels come in a ten-spoke configuration that’s both stylish and lightweight with Pirelli’s Diablo Rosso II tires for the final connection to the pavement. Sachs provides the rear monoshock, and it comes with the courtesy spring-preload adjustment plus adjustable rebound damping. All this makes for a plush ride with 5.12 inches of travel up front and 5.91 inches in back.

Dual, four-pot, Monobloc Brembo calipers bite huge, 320 mm front discs for the buk of the stopping power with a single-pot caliper and 245 mm disc to slow the rear and all-around Bosch 9.1 MP ABS protection as part of the standard equipment package.

Drivetrain

Nothing clutters up the look of a naked bike quite like a radiator, but Ducati neatly sidestepped that problem with a good, old-fashioned air-cooled engine. Duc’s Desmodue L-Twin cranks out 50.8 pound-feet of torque at 5,750 RPM backed up by 75 horsepower at 8,250; pretty exciting stuff considering this smallest Monster tips the scales at a mere 425 pounds soaking wet.

Oversquare, the lump runs an 88 mm bore and 66 mm stroke with a total displacement of 803 cc, and of course, Ducati’s signature Desmodromic valvetrain times the two-valve heads. Compression is middle-of-the-range at 11-to-1, so you can count on mid-grade at the least, and maybe even premium to keep it from pinging and dieseling. A pair of 50 mm throttle bodies feeds the Monster’s mill with a 2-into-1 header ahead of the stainless-steel muffler with a catalyst to help it meet Euro 4 emissions standards.

A six-speed transmission crunches the ratios to keep the engine in the powerband and sends power to the rear wheel through a tough, chain final drive. I’m a little surprised at the lack of a slipper clutch and traction control. I mean, I know it’s meant to be a beginner’s bike, and it only packs 800 cubes, but I submit that since the next tier of bikes up from there mostly pack slip-and-assist clutches, I reckon a trainer bike ought to include it as well.

Pricing

The factory keeps prices just below the $10K mark with a $9,295 sticker on its base “Red” model. Various trim levels are available that can carry the price as high as $9,895, and of course there’s always the accessories catalog to drive it up even further. This first-year run can be had in red, Star White Silk or Dark Stealth.

He Said

“I love the new Monster: unintimidating and accessible. This ride should prove popular with the masses, and was certainly one of the stars of the Milan show a few months ago. Honestly, this is just the kind of sportbike I would buy if I were in the market.”
