General Information on the 2009-2010 Ducati 1198 S

The 2009 Ducati 1198 S features a super strong 170 horsepower twin. Then count in 97 ft/lbs of torque @ 8000 rpm and you’ll have an idea. The S version also weighs 4.4 pounds less than the standard 1198 (mainly due to lighter wheels) and, with a dry weight of 169 kgs (373 pounds), the power to weight ratio is (in Kilos) finally a 1:1. The main straight at Portimao is 1,060-yard long, but due to a very fast right hander just before the straight I could see 125 mph very early on the straight and more than 160 mph before my conservative brake mark. It was conservative because I saw Bayliss fly past me at the end of the straight at one point.
