Martini Racing Ducati 1098

Martini Racing Ducati 1098S
Since 1968, the Martini Racing livery has been synonymous with championship-winning race cars. So it was only a matter of time before the iconic colors appeared on a motorcycle. The Ducati 1098 was a good choice: it’s a supermodel clotheshorse for high-impact paint schemes, as the exquisite Gulf-Ducati showed. This 1098S was built by Nor-Cal Ducati dealer Hattar Motorsports, receiving a full race prep (Motorcycle USA did a track test) before being repainted in the Martini Racing colors. Check the terrific Martini Racing website for more vintage racing goodness of the four-wheeled kind—including the 1975 Porsche Carrera RS and the Lancia 037 Berlinetta rally car.
