2012 Ducati Motorcycle
The long-awaited Streetfighter 848, based on the Ducati Superbike 848 EVO, is here.
Powered by an 848 Testastretta 11° engine that puts out 132 horsepower at 10,000 rpm and 69 ft/lbs of torque 500 rpm earlier, Ducati claims the new Streetfighter will be conspicuous by “user-friendliness with a smooth and flexible power delivery, revised ergonomics and Ducati Traction Control.”
The trellis frame is new and the geometry of the Streetfighter 848 is derived from the Superbike 848 EVO.
Goodies like radially mounted front brake calipers and master cylinder show that the Streetfighter 848 will slow down as powerfully as it speeds up.
