Yeah thats crank numbers. The 1098R is the new one, its 1198cc 160hp on the standard 1098 and 1098s

Yeah, ok. I thought so. I've read the 1098 puts down somewhere in the 130's or so. Which is on par with what I've read the 1125R is putting to the road.

The 1098R is the World Superbike homologation bike that's being released for 2008. It doesn't share very many parts with the standard 1098, the motor is almost entirely new. It's about 15 lbs. lighter than a 1098S, 200 HP, 100 Torque, about the most "race" that any street-legal Ducati has ever been. All yours for a measely $39,995!

NIce bike for sure... But I'd rather buy 2 SV650's for less than 1 848!

Two SV's + full ohlins is probably cheaper than the 1098!

Yep and the HP combined on those 2 SV's = that of 1 848.

Thats where the coolness factor comes in. Personal preference. You don't NEED to spend Ferrari money to get Porsche performance, but if you can.....why not?
