Japan gets Ducati 1098R Puma Limited Edition
The 1098R Puma Edition is the result of Ducati winning the 2008 Superbike World Championship and renewing their successful partnership with Puma. Built only for Japan in a limited number of ten units, the motorcycles distinguish with a white Puma logo on the side fairing and a special number stamped on the upper stem of the fork. This gets the price up to as much as 35,000 euros and pretty much excludes the regular Ducati buyer from the target public. But because these things were most likely immediately sold back in December when released, the only thing for us remaining to do is signal the existence of this model and eventually outrage by how a few grams of paint and a small stamped plate can have that much of an influence on the price.
