Cagiva owned Ducati for a time so that is my excuse for including the pretty Italian V4, 500cc 2-stroke Grand Prix racer. The bike was never extremely successful although it did win 3 GP’s with Eddie Lawson and John Kocinski at the controls.
John Bisson is becoming well known on the interwebs for his truly stunning paintwork on various bikes including the recently covered Martini Ducati 1098. This time he has created a Red Bull bike with astounding attention to detail. If you would like work like this applied to your bike check out his site. The awesome photos were taken by Thomas Gray who can be contacted at TwistedFotos@yahoo.com.
For the 2002 Superbike season Ducati needed to arm reigning World Superbike Champion, Troy Bayliss, with an improved weapon to compete with the new Honda VTR1000SP-W that Colin Edwards would run (Edwards ultimately won the championship at the final round in Imola in an epic battle with Bayliss).
This week we have a great shot of Larry Pegram’s Ducati 1098R AMA Superbike.
Larry Pegram’s Team Foremost Ducati team is factory supported by Ducati North America. After 10 years in the AMA Superbike victory wilderness, Pegram put the very fast bike (which hit 200mph at Daytona) on the top of the box at Road America and followed it up with double victories at Topeka, Kansas.

First shown as a concept bike in 1998, Ducati announced in 2000 that they would build 2,000 examples of a bike inspired by Mike Hailwood’s Isle of Mann TT winning racer (subject itself to an earlier replica in 1979). Designed by Pierre Terblanche the stylist responsible for both the controversial 999 and the gorgeous Supermono the model offered a modern interpretation of the traditional lines of the Ducati sport twin.
