Pulled the trigger on a 1098

Finally! I've been wanting a Ducati for 15 yrs, and finally got one.
Man, what a blast to ride. Bought the 'S' model and nuthin says handling like Ohlins on a Ducati.

Thanks, yeah its amazing. Took a little ride up the canyons and it put me to shame. It has more handling than I have huevos

It has damn near the same torque and 100+ lbs lighter then my hayabusa.
I compare the busa to a bull, and the Ducati is like a thoroughbred.

Can't wait til its broken in and then I can really put it thru the wringer.

YA THINK???

I would say it has no where near the same HP as the Busa BUT yes you have an awesome bike...congrats.

I've ridden the 999 a few times but that's the extent of my Duc experience...very nice.

Yeah, about 13 less ponies, but with 120 less pounds to haul around, the 1098 has a nice power to weight advantage versus the Busa (1:3.14 vs. 1:3.64).

13 is all ? I honestly thought it was more than that.

160 Hp and 90 lbs/tq

This isn't the "R" model...right ?

The Busa only has 173 hp ? What year Busa ?

Your #'s are correct....not the "R" model, and my busa is '00' model, so yes #'s are quite comparable......except for weight. lol

Pulled the figures from Motorcycle Consumer News... HP at the rear wheel. Not the 1098R.

1098s: 138hp
Busa (Pre-'08): 151hp

I didn't realize my R1 had more HP than a pre 08 Busa. I know the Busa has more torque.

I've only ridden one Busa...for about a week recently... an 05 but it was turbocharged with 255-267 rwhp depending on boost and well over 100 rwtq...what a beast.

Same guy owned the 999 that I rode.

Compared to past Ducati's price/performance wise...the 1098 is a good buy...awesome bike.
