I don't think any of the models come factory with a slipper clutch, do they?

Maybe he broke into his brothers stash before writting this article

Yea, there is no slipper clutch as far as I know. Maybe the bike just works so well that Ducati figured it would not put one on......or maybe, just maybe it has one like the 'R' models do and they just aren't saying anything about it. Ducati has never really been real big on advertising the slipper in the 'R' models like the 748R. The pressure plate doesn't even look any different. I guess I'll have to get my hands on one and take it apart. One would think it appropriate to have a slipper clutch on an engine with such high torque, especially a twin!

hmmm... that's news to me about the R models too.
for sure though, with 90fl lbs of torque it would only take half a hot lap to know whether or not you were suffering through all that back torque or not.

I remember reading it somewhere in the fine print years ago on the 748R. Don't know if they put it on the 998R or any of the 999-series bikes.

Oh wow that is kind of a bummer I have gotten really use to ridding the 05 gixxer with a slipper clutch. It is my first time having one on a bike and I must say I have gotten really spoiled ridding with it. It is hard to believe that ducati would just leave that off, after all thay have just built the best bike ever in the 1098.

You can buy a slipper for about a grand. Although I recommend getting the STM 48tooth. Lasts longer but it more expensive.
