This motorcycle was developed for the for the LG Moto Racing Team with the driver Tomas Svitok for the season 2011/2012 of the Superbike World Cup in the 1000 ccm class. In order to meet the guidelines of the World Cup 1000, it was constructed on the then brand-new 1098R. The engine is based on the original engine for the SBK Althea racing team and was modified to 205 hp by the famous Ducati engine technician Maurizio Perlini (crankcase signed MPM). The suspension was replaced by a fully adjustable MUPO racing suspension. Other components were modified or replaced, in order to get a maximum performance out of the original 1098R (racing electronics, quick shifter, traction control, anti-hopping-clutch). The bike was completely restored in autumn 2015 and has only been in use for thirty minutes for testing purpose. The engine has got new ball bearings and sealings. The gearbox also has been completely revised to make the bike fir for racing again. The history is very well documented by WSBK control stickers on the frame. The motorcycle has not been registered before and is sold with all papers and blank COC.
The model series Ducati 1098 was developed by the Italian engineer Andrea Forni and presented on 8 November 2006. As superbike and follow-up model of the Ducati 999, it is one of the most successful racing motorcycles ever. The Ducati 1098 R is seen as the absolute state-of-the-art and top model of the 1098 series it was the homologation model for the use in racing. With only a small number of units produced, the price was at around 35,000 euro in Germany. The Ducati 1098 R features an 1198 ccm engine with a 106 mm bore and 67.9 mm stroke as well as milled cylinder heads. It has an astounding output of 132 kW (180 hp) at 9,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 34 Nm at 7,750 rpm. Unlike the other 1098 models, this engine has an anti-hopping-clutch and an improved Öhlins chassis. Several drivers won the FIM Superstock 1000 Cup with this superbike, among them Brendan Roberts in 2008, Xavier Siméon in 2009 and Davide Giugliano in 2011.
