Ducati continues to add models and expand their motorcycle line more and more toward the mainstream. Sport touring, adventure touring, street fighter, even super (hyper) motard genres are represented in their current lineup, expanding the Italian company further and further from their sportbike fame. The Ducati faithful have nothing to fear, though – the 848 is NOT one of those models, but instead is a thoroughbred superbike to its core. On the Real Time Road Test this week, Ultimate MotorCycling Online Director Pazzo Miguel happily swings his Italian leg over an Italian stallion and gallops off a bit too quickly for the tastes of his local law enforcement agents. After spending a bit of quality time showing them his picture and address, he heads off to the super-secret M1 test facility and puts the pearl white Ducati through its paces giving listeners a great example of one of the best stock exhaust sounds in the industry. Listen (to the 4th, 5th and 6th segment of the live radio podcast) here for the the 2010 Ducati 848 ‘real-time’ road test and more.
