Ducati's new 1098R is the closest thing the Italian firm has ever produced to a full-blooded World Superbike racer.

Costing £24,000 it has a 186bhp, 1200cc engine, top quality cycle parts, and for the first time ever on a road bike: traction control.
 
Senior Road Tester Michael Neeves travelled to the Ducati's world launch in Jerez to check it out. Read his full report in this week's MCN (Wednesday 30th January 2008)
