7 WONDER OF TRACK 1000CC SUPERBIKES TESTED PT1
7) Ducati’s up-spec 2010 1198S Corse Special Edition Superbike wowed us with the brutal power delivery of its L-Twin engine, slim Ohlins-equipped chassis and devilish silhouette.

Engine: Liquid-cooled 1198cc L-Twin; 8-valves
Fuel Delivery: Marelli electronic fuel-injection
Fuel Capacity: 4.1 gallons
MSRP: $16,495
6) The Yamaha YZF-R1 offers an interesting take on the Inline-Four cylinder engine configuration. With its cross plane crankshaft design and unique engine firing order it offers a distinct howl from its twin underseat exhaust and a unique power delivery that is best described as a cross between a Twin and an Inline engine.

Fuel Capacity: 4.8 gal.
MSRP: $13,590

5) KTM brings the other V-Twin powered motorcycle to the show. The RC8R has been around for a few years now and the Austrians have made subtle refinements each year in hopes of perfecting their superbike formula.

Engine: 1195cc liquid-cooled, V-Twin, 8-valve
Fuel Delivery: Fuel-Injection, Keihin 52mm throttle body
Fuel Capacity: 4.35 gal.
