The Pierobon rear sub-frame is now in place!
On the 1098, Ducati for sure has done a much better job on the weight saving compared to the 998/748. The rear standard sub frame weight is 2.9 kilo and the Pierobon 1.2 kilo. My total weight saving including removing turn indicators etc and replacing the standard plastic parts with race fairing is only 3.5 kilo. I was expecting to save more…..
When checking the total weight for the bike (without gas/petrol) and comparing to my old race 748 using the same scale I ended up with the following: 748R race ready 186 kg and 1098S street 192 kg.
