Any foolproof way to tell the 1098 motor from the 1198 motor?

wow that is cool! I personally like the color combo but im sure there are a million other cool ones, and it would be nice to be different.

So are you going to powder coat the wheels or paint them. Cause if you powder coat them i htink it adds like two pounds which defeats the purpose of the light weight marchi wheels. And i think i read somewhere you can use a double clear coat or some type of finnish that is very good at protecting them from chips and scratches

Anyone got any knowledge about that?

I agree with both you and your Mechanic. That Tan look is not the worst but could have been better. Looking forward to seeing the pics of the finished product. UNBELIEVABLE Customer Service you are getting! That bike will look sick in a VERY good way when it is done!

Any idea why the casing is now magnesium or is it different material?
they are serious about matching the bike,
gold wheels, gold casing, gold fram. you are forced to add
gold clutch cover and maybe rear sets although it might be a little off.
I can see the pipes powder coated black though thats a nobrainer.

Haven't they switched to the new vacuum casting now with the 1198 as they use with the 848 ?

+1 for the weight AND....

I have PMV's on the 996 which were power coated, every time you change a tyre they chip the powder, AND as the wheel flexises when you hit a pot hole, it causes the powder coating to crack and it then comes off, hence I am getting them painted at next tyre change.....

by the looks of it, it sure does look lighter than
1098 models, more like the desmo casing.
brettc it might be even lighter material than 848, I am sure it is for wight reduction if anything

That last shot with the factory 1198 sticker (I still find that funny) is a close up of the valve cover....and it does look to be magnesium. The cases are aluminum like always. If they would have painted the frame and wheels the color of that magnesium valve cover.... I would have been fine with that color. Aprilia for a couple years did their frames and wheels in that color. Maybe a reason why Ducati didn't....but that would have made a little more sense since the valve covers and the headlight shell support are mag.

Obviously, they've gone to black on both left and right side case covers, but there are subtle differences between the cases of the 1098 vs 1198. I can post a pic of these if you like. Anyway....heres a better shot of just the motor (1198).
