Tricolore, Red, White & Green
Black seat


I am delighted to have received a deposit for this unrepeatable Ducati 1098S Tricolore, finished in traditional Italian flag colours of red, white and green, with gold Marchesini wheels and frame.

The 1098S was already a fabulous machine with Ducati’s legendary V-Twin engine pushing out enough for nearly any rider at the time, but in 2007 Ducati created a small number of special editions named TRICOLORE to celebrate their life long Italian heritage, with circa 1,500 produced worldwide and just a few of those coming to the UK.

Featuring the aforementioned Marchesini lightweight alloys in gold to match the frame and unique gold sash on the tank, Ohlins performance suspension and steering damper, with large Brembo brake upgrades to name but a few upgrades over the standard models.

All these details go to make a normal Tricolore a stunning bike to own and ride, however this particular edition goes a lot further.

This UK supplied Tricolore has a long list of additional Carbon Fibre parts supplied from new with an invoice for these supplied with the bike, most prominent are both Front (fitted) and rear seat tail (not fitted in photos) fairings in Carbon Fibre, professionally painted to seamlessly match the Tricolore colour scheme. This also creates 3 options for the rear seat configuration – 1st for two seats or Biposto (the Rear foot rests are removed for cosmetic purposes only by supplied) with black cushioned seat cover, 2nd is the single seat monoposto painted Red cover and finally the 3rd visual Carbon Fibre seat cover.

Part of the many other upgrades on this special bike are the open clutch cover and Ducati Performance clutch with stainless springs, but more noticeably when starting the bike, are the formidable large bore exhaust pipes with stainless manifolds, all ending in the carbon Termignoni cans making this V-Twin sound as glorious as it should.

This bike has had just one owner from new and covered only 367 miles, with original factory tyres still fitted showing this to be genuine and at its recent service, the official Ducati dealer had to give it the “factory run-in” first service along with a full inspection that included of course new Cam-belts and a new correct battery.

The bike’s condition is perfect like new and its’ now ready to be enjoyed by a new owner, whether that be as the perfect addition to a fine bike collection or to be enjoyed on the road.

  • Stainless Exhaust Manifolds
  • Radial folding brake and clutch levers
