Martini Racing Ducati 1098: Something New, Something Old

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

We love the old 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s race cars here at A&R, and when we saw this Ducati 1098S done up in the Martini Racing livery, we were just smitten with the result. This particular bike was made right here in northern California, by a local dealership, Hattar Motorsports. Be sure to stop by there when you place an order for your new NCR Corse Millona.

Getting both shiny and go-fast parts, the Martini 1098 would be all the rage at your local track day…if you could part with it from your living room…you know, where’d you’d have it as a conversation piece.

Along the same vein, we stumbled across this Gulf Racing Ducati 1098R that was raced at last year’s 24 Heures Moto at Le Mans. We can’t say that the vintage racing paint really crossed-over to the Ducati like the Martini theme did. We’d much rather see it on a Ford GT40.

Now which would you rather own, these bikes? Or, the new Hayden 848? We know where our vote goes.
