Ducati Streetfigther

Specifications-Click on the Image to enlarge.

Ducati's new 1098 Streetfighter is a naked, traction control-equipped version of their fully-faired superbike, and pretty much makes their Monster lineup sound like a misnomer. Boasting a slightly less powerful 1098 engine that produces 155 horsepower and 85 lb-ft of torque (5 less hp and lb-ft than the fully-faired 1098), this exposed exotic wears its insides on the outside with enough sharp edges and complicated lines to inspire plenty of healthy debate about its beauty... or, lack thereof. Incidentally, last year's 1098 gets uprated to an 1198 for 2009.
