Cycle World -- June 2007, page 86 -- 2007 Ducati 1098S: Italy takes on Japan with Twin barrels blazing

    "At 70 mph on the freeway, the tach reads a mellow 4000 rpm, purring like a kitten. Ducatis have been nothing but smooth in terms of fuel delivery for years and this bike is no exception. Open the throttle from any position and the bike responds instantly and flawlessly. Everything about this bike has that level of refinement. The action from the clutch is crisp, despite a short engagement range, and the transmission shifts with precise and buttery action. The slipper clutch unit quietly goes about its business, never drawing attention to itself." -- Blake Conner, Associate Editor
