The 2011 848EVO now further enhances the Ducati middleweight superbike with more power from the Testastretta engine and more braking power from Brembo’s incredible Monobloc brake technology combining to provide an even more exciting Ducati motorcycle.
The new Ducati 848EVO is powered by a liquid cooled, L-Twin, Desmodromic engine that produces 140hp (103kW) @ 10,500rpm and a high-accelerating 72.3lb-ft (10kgm) of torque @ 9,750rpm.
The 94mm x 61.2mm bore and stroke breathes through 4-valves per cylinder fed by totally revised inlet port shapes and racing-style elliptical throttle bodies, which are now increased in size from an equivalent diameter of 56mm to 60mm.
A brand new piston crown and combustion chamber shape improve burn efficiency and increase the compression ratio from 12:1 to a power-enhancing 13.2:1 while new camshafts provide 13mm of valve-lift compared with 11.5mm and an inlet duration increase from 253° to 257°.
With the Ducati Desmodromic valve system, the desmo valves are closed mechanically with the same accuracy as it is opened, enabling steep cam profiles and radical cam timings. This system is used on every Ducati motorcycle including their world-beating superbike and Desmosedici MotoGP racebikes.
The highly advanced 848 EVO engine was the first Ducati superbike to introduce vacuum die-cast crankcases, formed using Vacural technology, a process that achieves a significant weight saving and ensures consistent wall thickness and increased strength.
For 2011 the lightweight Ducati 848EVO superbike engine has its outer-cases finished in black.
Ducati prescribes 7,500 miles (12,000 kilometers) between service intervals, making 848EVO ownership easy and enjoyable.
