The Ducati 1098 is a sport bike made by Ducati from 2007 to 2009, in three versions, the 1098, 1098S, and 1098R. The 1098 was succeeded by the 1198 in 2009, though the 1098R remained in production that year.

The 1098 shares more design elements with the older 998 than with its predecessor the 999, such as horizontally placed headlights and a non-integrated exhaust system. Another carryover from its 916/998 heritage is the single-sided swingarm. The 1098 was designed by Ducati designer, Giandrea Fabbro.

The 1098/1098 S makes a manufacturer claimed 119Kw, 103Kw rear wheel, 123 Nm torque, 106 Nm rear wheel, and weighs 173 kg . The 0-60 mph time is less than 3.0 seconds and 1/4 mile at 10.015 seconds at 231.65 km/h and top speed of 279 km/h.

The 1098 R, with its larger displacement 1198 cc engine, makes a manufacturer claimed 132.4Kw, 134 Nm torque. At the time of its release, these figures gave the 1098 the highest torque-to-weight ratio of any production sport bike ever made.

With the release of the 1098, Ducati created a stir not only with road riders, but also in the racing world, specifically the Superbike World Championship. In an attempt to level the playing field, WSBK regulations provide for concessions to motorcycles depending on the number of cylinders in their engine design. The fewer the cylinders, the more concessions, and with its two-cylinder V-twin design Ducati was able to capitalize on many of these concessions.
