In 2002, Ducati released 700 examples of the 998R – it was their top of the line sportbike at the time and it featured a revised Testastretta motor that would end up being quite similar to the engine in the future 999R. Other goodies included carbon fiber bodywork and Ohlins suspension. This…is not one of those bikes. But thanks to …
