Hi guys, thought I better try and figure out how to put up some pics of our 1098R that we race all over Australia up.This bike is unbelievable. We are a ducati dealer in Bunbury Western Australia and have been drag racing ducatis for about 5 or more years I suppose.Before the R we raced a 1098 but now this is our #1 fighter.
I carefully pulled it out of the crate and gave it a good checkover and then it was onto our Dyno to be run in properly.After a few hours and a few oil changes, the time had come to see what the dyno numbers would be.
In absoloutly STD condition it made 171BHP. This was 5 more than our kited out 1098 from last season.
Then the suplied muffler kit was next 179BHP.
Off to the drags and gee that bike looked great all lowered down. Criminal thing to do to one of the best handling bikes on the planet.
9.74 seconds 147mph was the best time in this state of tune.
Time for 70mm termi headers,Wasp race intake Tracts and a Powercommander,
twin cyl tune and the number was incredible........190 Bee Haitch Peeee.
Back to the best power tuning tool of all time, the dragstrip.
We have now acheived a best ET of 9.60 155MPH.
Out of 40 bikes in our class we are probably 12 fastest time wise, but are
2nd or 3rd fastest in the MPH department. Nothing will pass this bike up the topend of the track.
Next on the cards are a pair of prototype WASP Billet Alloy Velocity Stacks that are similar to the ducati performance ones.They will be alot more affordable, and the dyno and race track will soon tell us what BHP they are good for.
