2008 Xerox Ducati 1098 F08 racebike shown

On the racing track, will this Ducati 1098 F08 be a worthy successor to the 916 and the 999? This will indeed be a crucial year for Ducati in WSBK...!

Xerox and Ducati have unveiled the 1098 F08 World Superbikes racer, which is based on the homologation-special 1098R. ‘2008 is a very important year for Ducati, as it sees the debut of the 1098 F08 racebike in the World Superbikes championship. The F08 is a bike derived from the impressive 1098R that has already become a technological point of reference with regard to production sport bikes. This season Ducati Corse lines up the official Ducati Xerox Team and provides extensive technical support to the satellite teams, confident that great results will be achieved thanks also to the level of expertise of all its riders,’ said Filippo Preziosi, Director General of Ducati Corse.

Ducati Xerox rider, Italian Michel Fabrizio was present at the unveiling, which took place in Jerez, in Spain. He rode the 1098R as well as the 1098 F08 during test sessions. ‘This event, in which the 1098 R was presented to the press, has helped me to see just how effectively Ducati transfers its racing know-how to the production of its road bikes and how, in this way, bike enthusiasts are able to have high-performance machines that are as unique as these. I can't wait to start the championship with this fantastic bike,’ he said.

And with fans like these, how can Ducati lose...?
