The Ducati 1198 is a sport bike produced by the Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati beginning 2009. Ducati offers three models of the bike: the 1198, 1198S and 1198R.

The 1198 shares identical design elements with its predecessor 1098, but has more power and torque, redesigned wheels, lighter headlights, traction control and lighter fairings (on the S model), and a few minor paint changes. Another carryover from its 998 heritage is a distinctive single-sided swingarm.

The Ducati 1198 models color are available in red, white and black.
