2011 Ducati 848 EVO Superbike Ride

The road holding of Pirelli’s Diablo Supercorsa SP is absolutely amazing. This is full-on DOT race tires like just a few years

Fresh for 2011, Italy’s motorcycling brand, Ducati. has a new middleweight sportbike dubbed the 848 EVO This new motorcycle replaces the and offers increased braking, and handling performance for less than before with its now starting at $12,995, a full less than its predecessor.

The 848 EVO can be as Ducati’s entry-level Superbike. It the same frame, suspension and identical braking components as the World Superbike pedigree The primary difference is the powertrain its use of a smaller 849cc liquid-cooled engine and conventional wet (bathed in clutch.

This places it in a unique in the sportbike world offering a with a bit more power what the middleweight 600cc class can offer.

Engineers with the base 848 as we’ve extensively in the 2008 Ducati 848 and 2009 Ducati 848 Comparison. then focused on the engine and it with new hard parts. began by reworking each head and modifying the intake for better flow. New camshafts 13% higher lift on all four of the valves and 8% more lift on the exhaust valves. New pistons also fitted that compression ratio from to 13.2:1.

The throttle bodies grew 4mm in to 60mm. Other hot rodding include a 500 rpm increase in maximum revs with the limiter now in at 11,300 rpm. More means more heat so the timing belt covers now ventilation slits in them.

Together, Ducati claims changes allow the 848 to pump out peak horses than

The potential for trap speeds necessitates braking performance so engineers the two-piece cast Brembo for the one-piece monobloc design as on the 1198. We were never of the two-piece calipers so for us this is huge. The calipers still down on twin 320mm rotors with a radial-mount cylinder and steel brake augmenting the set-up fore and The rear brake is unchanged and is no ABS option.

Ducati claims that the 848 now 20% more stopping force on the same amount of lever

Other chassis changes the fitment of a non-adjustable steering that is horizontally- mounted the fuel tank and the top triple as well as an upgrade to Pirelli’s Diablo Supercorsa SP road These tires are one of our favorites on the street and track and you can learn about them in the Pirelli Supercorsa SP Tire Comparison .

All said and done Ducati that the new EVO weighs roughly the as the standard 848 which we previously at 420 pounds with a full 4.1 of fuel. Lastly, the EVO will in three colors including Stealth for $12,995 and Ducati Red and White Silk for $1000 We are especially fond of the latter tandem with its bright red wheels.
