2011 Ducati Motorcycle
Ducati’s 848 EVO for 2011 swaps out the Testastretta’s cylinder heads, pistons, throttle bodies and camshafts, and increases power to a claimed 140 horsepower and 72.3 ft/lbs torque – more than liter-bikes of a few years ago.
The craftsmen at RS Taichi combined the best elements of their previous GP Max and EVO gloves to create the GP-EVO motorcycle gloves.
Ducati 848 EVO
Ducati motorcycles are quintessentially Italian. They are hot-blooded, good-looking, and they simply ooze charisma. Forever intertwined with racing, Ducati won the very first World Superbike Championship in 1988 and have subsequently dominated it so completely that at one point people started referring to it as The Ducati Cup.

First Ride Review
Nearly two-and-a-half years since I tested the very first Ducati Hypermotard motorcycle at Mores in Sardinia, I’m at it again. I clearly remember that I wished for a little more horsepower down the short 550-yard straight and that’s exactly what Ducati has delivered.
The new Acerbis IMPACT series of knee braces and elbow guards are having a huge "impact" on the off-road market. Designed in two parts to offer a superior range of motion without sacrificing protection, these new knee braces offer a perfect combination of technical and visual features.
Billed as the most technologically developed kneeguard on the market, the EVO’s three-part design was borrowed from Acerbis’ Soccer division and features a special shin guard shell to set it apart from the basic knee braces on the market.
