We found the complete Ducati 1198 and 1198 S dealer information booklet over at the Ducati.ms forums. It’s 34 pages of all new details (like the new traction control system on the 1198S) and technical information. If you’re a tech-head and love reading about the shot-peened gears and increased valve diameters, this is a nice read. But it’s not all technical, there’s a breakdown of the differences between the 1198 and the 1098, and the 1198 and the 1198 S. There’s information about the new colors as well.
You’ll have two choices with the regular 1198, Classic Red or Pearl White, both have a Racing Black frame and Graphite Grey wheels. With the 1198 S, you can choose between Classic Red or Midnight Black, both with a Bronze frame and wheel. Check out some selected pages from the booklet, or read the entire thing in .PDF format:
