In 2010, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer launched the Ducati 1198S, a sports machine that combined World Superbike technology with a powerful engine, top-end suspensions, lightweight chassis elements, and a racing-style traction control system made for road use.

For appearance, the bike featured an aggressive design with a full fairing, a small windscreen, twin eye-shaped headlights, a single seat, an under-seat-mounted exhaust system, and seven-spoke lightweight wheels.

The bike was fitted with a high-performance Ohlins suspension, comprising a 43 mm fully adjustable upside-down TiN-coated fork on the front and a fully adjustable shock absorber on the rear, offering top-shelf suspension performance and handling.

In the braking department, the bike packed two 330 mm discs with four-piston calipers on the front wheel and a 245 mm disc with a dual-piston caliper on the rear wheel, delivering robust and reliable stopping power.

The 2010 Ducati 1198S had its heartbeat set by an 1198cc four-stroke V-twin liquid-cooled engine with an Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system, boasting 170 hp at 9,750 rpm and 132 Nm (97 lb-ft) torque with a maximum peak force at 8,000 rpm.

The engine power was handled by a six-speed manual transmission with a hydraulic dry multi-plate clutch and a final chain drive, pushing the bike to a top speed of 281 kph (175 mph).

In addition, the machine was supplied with the Ducati Data Analysis (DDA) and Ducati Traction Control (DTC) as standard.
