2012 Ducati Sportbike
The 2012 Ducati 848 EVO’s Testastretta motor pumps out a claimed 140 horsepower and 72.3 ft/lbs of torque-more than liter-bikes of just a few years ago.
With Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires and Showa suspension, little of that power is wasted. Something of a stripped down Superbike with a focus on the basics, virtually none of the technological wizardry found on the 1199 Panigale is employed on the 848 EVO, though some are available on the Corse SE version, which also has larger front discs and Öhlins suspension.
However, the standard Superbike 848 EVO thrives on both the street and track, thanks to its simplicity and relatively easy ride.
