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.
Since Ducati’s announcement of its entry into the cruiser class – the Diavel – we’ve waited with intrigue and a healthy dose of skepticism to see what their engineers would actually come up with.
At first blush the idea would seem to be at odds with Ducati’s brand credo: high performance at all costs.
