Hey guys ive been thinkin about this day since I was 15. I picked up an 08 yellow 1098 with 5k. it sucks that I have to wait to ride it but I can stare at it all day.

I also have a question for you guys, I was looking through my papers from the dealer and it sais 1098S on all the papers. Now I had to go look at everything over and I don't see any ohlins shocks. is there something wrong here or are??


btw obligatory bike photos

That's definitely not a S version. Did the dealer tell you it's a S? Or does it just say that on the paperwork?

Nice bike btw and congrats.

Congrats on the new bike! If it were an S it would have the Ohlins suspension and some carbon bits, I hope they didn't jack up the price on it and sell you on the premise that it was an S. Regardless, still a beautiful, low-mileage find in a rare color; that's winning!

That is freakin weird. I bought an 1198 about 2 years ago, from a ducati/bimota dealer up on the Sunshine Coast (Qld). Bike was priced as an 1198, but paperwork definitely says 1198S! It's insured as an 1198, but the government registration paperwork says 1198S. I don't know why.
It is the base model.

Thats really weird i wonder if that affects insurance pricing seeing as its a more expensive bike on paper. Did they even make a yellow S i thought they were only red or black
