anyone seen the Tricolor 1098 yet? i have searched online for pics but all i ever find are the prices, my buddy is heading back to wisconsin next year and is going to be purchasing a 1098 but he wants to see the tricolor so he can figure out is he wants to drop the extra money on the top model, anyone have any pics or links to them?

Trying to find the info but I think the tri-color would be in the second year it was out IRIC.

*edit* Just read in the scan here http://www.tlzone.net/forums/showthread.php?t=79177 that there may be a tricolor option, but nothing concrete yet. I'd imagine more info will be coming soon on these as the actual bike has only just been recently announced.

lol, what's with the bit of aluminum foil looking stuff on the tank? Seems sorta out of place - must be a good reason for it:O

I definitely see design cues from other bikes in this... but that said, the more I see it the more I like it.

I was never a fan of the 999 and this is a great recovery.

I've come around to the design of the 999, but it still never strikes me as Ducatiesque when I see one. The 1098 screams Duc.
