R-model Ducatis have traditionally been the flagships in Ducati's range. The $40,000 1098R doesn't just rival them; it leaves them for dead.

Impetus for creating the 1098R was the change in World Superbike regulations allowing 1200cc twins to compete alongside 1000cc fours. It was testimony to Ducati Corse's efforts and Troy Bayliss' dogged determination that they managed to win a world title after the fours were allowed 1000cc as well.
