so maybe pussycat is a slight but the new 2012 Ducati 848 Streetfighter is a softer riding yet meaner spinoff of the fully-faired 848 EVO .

How much

If you like going fast but enjoy being hunched the Streetfighter 848— like its big the $18,995 Streetfighter S — more comfortable ergonomics, a handlebar that’s .78 inches and slightly wider footpegs. One complaint with the big-bore S is that the exhaust pipe on the rider’s right boot. ergonomic qualm has been with the new, smaller

Thanks to narrower exhaust the 848 feels a bit more conventional in and doesn’t crowd your That’s not to say it isn’t sporty, but certainly less committed the stretched out posture demanded of the 848 Swing a leg over the new Streetfighter, and it narrow and light (thanks to a 437 wet weight, which is actually 9 heavier than the EVO.)

But the Streetfighter is than an 848 stripped bare; its has been revised with a valve overlap of 11 degrees, smooths out power delivery reducing output from 140 to 132 hp. measures 69 lb-ft, and a standard traction control system wheel speed differential and you to micromanage how much slip the computer will allow, power is cut.

Now that we’ve got the basic’s let’s ride.
