Ducati has recently presented the official video for the all-new 1198 model replacing the 1098 model produced and succesfully sold in 2008. The new bike is built around the 1198cc Testastretta Evoluzione L-Twin engine which develops 170bhp at 9,750rpm and 131Nm at 8,000rpm. Also, with a dry weight of only 171 kg, competitors such as the Aprilia RSV4, BMW S1000RR and the entire Japanese crowd have plenty to worry about.

Two models are available for 2009, the 1198 and 1198S and both are shown racing in Ducati’s promotional video attached below.
