1098R Engine Failure
I have been looking at buying a 1098R since I moved to Italy a few months back.
But I would like some help regarding any know engine faults with the model
I am going to look at a 1098R this weekend, it has done around 8000Km, but Iím a little concerned because the owner mentioned that he had an engine failure at about 6000Km which was fixed by Ducati under warranty.
He sent me the list of parts and work that was done. I suppose what I want to know is if this is something people are aware of or should I steer away from the bike.. Is this a sign that the bike was raced?
I am attaching the lest it in Italian but as you can see itís quite extensive
Any feedback would be appreciated

it appears the vertical cylinder was trashed. Looks like they replaced the jug and valves and re-used the head.

A 1098R is not really intended to be a street bike - it has sand casted cases and lightweight internals for racing. If you are buying it for racing, then I am sure you are aware of rebuild/servicing levels.
For street use..........
Now that they are getting old (8000kms) I would enter into it knowing that it is not the kind of bike that will make 20,000kms, and you will end up rebuilding it.
I would buy an 1198s instead.

I was looking into buying an r model. I asked a lot of questions cause I heard the same thing about not being street bikes. Now my dealer told me this was the case in the beginning when the 1098r was first introduced, it was meant to be a race bike. But after so many warranty claims and buy backs from street customers Ducati changed the parts out for different tolerances to last longer.
The only reason I didn't purchase was the fact of the price vs my skill level didn't warrant.
Im sure someone will post up with more details. Maybe call a few dealers and ask about it.

Thans for all the input on the 1098R.
I supose I need to find out more from the owner. I have a feeling that he may have raced it once or twice and this would have put extra stress on the engine.
In not sure if 8000Km would be considerd lots of miles if the bike was used only as a street bike as a racer yes I agree.
The engine now has some 1800Km since the rebuild.
It might just be one to walk away from as there are a few around here that I can look at.
As far as buying the 1098S, I looked at that but I always wanted the R model, I even looked at a 998R for a wile with 2000 Km but in the end decided on the 1098R
I supose its just a personal choice. But you got me wondering if I should go for the S, nut then you hear about people buying an S and hoting it up some im back to the same question.
As I said in the post, are these type of engine issues a known problem. Would you walk away from this one and look at another one

what ever you get, issues will come up as time goes by, if you have an access to a reputable dealer with a qualified mechanic, then you do not have to worry about it.
I too always love the R models. as a matter of fact I am waiting for the new R model to come out.
I am thinking, since the R has a race engine, it can with stand more stress right? So street ridding of up to 8k rpm should be a walk in the park for the R since it is designed to duke it out in the track at 10,500++rpms? am I wrong?
People who say that Ducati owners are just posers are the ones who own 12 year old jap bikes who think they are god's gift to motorcycling world.
