VideoLamborghini Gallardo Superleggera vs Ducati 1098 / MCN
For 2007 only, the 1098 S is also available in an additional special ‘Tricolore’ version (red, white and green, the colours of the Italian national flag). The Ducati ‘Tricolore’ tradition began in 1985 with the stunning 750 F1 and then continued with the limited edition 851. The latest ‘Tricolore’ is a 1098 S with the additional features of Frame: and wheels finished in traditional ‘racing gold’ colours. In addition, a power-increasing 102 dB Termignoni racing muffler kit with dedicated ECU is supplied with the bike.
Suspension is of the very highest performance standard. The fully adjustable 43mm Öhlins FG511 forks, which sport low friction Titanium Nitride fork sliders, respond effortlessly to every imperfection in the tarmac. Beyond their advanced Engine: ering solutions, one of the most important characteristics of Öhlins forks is their ability to communicate the condition and quality of the tyre-to-road contact patch, a feature that puts every rider in superior control. The suspension system is completed and perfectly balanced by using a fully adjustable Öhlins 46PRC rear shock with a ride enhancing top-out spring, controlling the single-sided swingarm for outstanding drive, traction and steering precision. The Öhlins package is completed with a control-enhancing adjustable steering damper.
The ‘S’ also sets a new standard for lightWeight: performance. On any sport or race bike, the most effective area to reduce Weight: is its “unsprung Weight: ”. These are components like tyres, brakes and wheels. Lighter wheels have a lower ‘moment of inertia’ that is beneficial with every direction change and application of the brakes. The 1098 addresses this important area by mounting Marchesini forged and machined wheels, reducing Weight: by 1.9Kg (4lbs). Both front and rear are super lightWeight: and their benefit is immediately apparent. The Weight: saving is further enhanced with the application of a carbon fibre front fender.
