Ducati 848 Streetfighter

When Ducati launched their Streetfighter a few years ago, they were on to something special.  Take their WICKED 1098 and make a naked version of it.  They are upping the anti again with their middle weight 848-based Streetfighter.  A lot of people argue that the 848 motor is a lot better motorcycle for the street, so we are excited to try this bad boy out!

From Ducati’s website:

“Combining a new and brilliantly engineered 848 Testastretta 11° engine with the enhanced geometry of a chassis that provides confidence-inspiring agility, the Streetfighter 848 has enriched its user-friendliness with a smooth and flexible power delivery, revised ergonomics and Ducati Traction Control.

The Ducati Streetfighter scored a round one knock-out when it entered the ring for the first time at the Milan show back in November 2008, winning the ‘Most Beautiful Bike’ award and raising the bar for extreme nakeds. Its asphalt-ripping reputation became the desire of sport naked connoisseurs throughout the world and the Streetfighter 848 will now widen that appeal even further with enhanced usability.

Available from November 2011 onwards, the new fighter is dressed in red for Ducati traditionalists, while yellow makes a return for mid-range purists and “dark stealth” provides a matte-black reminder of the Streetfighter’s aggressive image.”

Little more to say, other than where can we drop off our deposit check!?
