Ducati Streetfighter 848 – Middleweight Fighter? Really, it’s of a Streetlover.

Need to inspect your tire? Just lean half an inch and look over the Streetfighter’s little panel. Thar she blows. fine.

The Triumph Street R may be 2.4 inches shorter of wheelbase and 23 lighter, but I think I feel more forward, perched and in control of the Streetfighter.

“Street-going is the cliché, and in the SFighter’s case, it I can touch the ground. This really skinny between the in the way only a V-Twin or Single can be, and its thrust and Ducati bark the off-road motif. Then the tapered aluminum handlebar.

And though you don’t get the Öhlins with this $6K-cheaper Streetfighter, the 848’s Marzocchi/Sachs feels a tad softer and longer-travel the $18,995 Streetfighter S model’s stuff. For streetfighting with bumps and assorted detritus, seems like a reasonably compromise, though the S-bike superior wheel control the mission switches to serious sporty riding.

You also get the 140.2 horsepower at 9800 rpm the S spat out in our July issue, but you do get at 10,240, along with a rear sprocket that you in the meaty part of the 848’s pretty much 24/7. a … 3.5mm shorter the 1099cc engine’s, the 848 is a happy revver that also smoothly from idle, to it being one of Ducati’s 11-degree engines.

Everybody who it gets behind this handlebar bend and height, and its steering feel compared to the S (which has different rake and numbers). And though the seat is not it is shaped like a human Our only complaint is that the shield on the right still your right heel out a as bad as on older Monsters, but just to bug some people with big

Speaking of Monsters, this dohc Streetfighter may have replaced the sohc 1100 EVO as our favorite streetgoing Ducati. The 848 everything a little better and a little better doing it. It looks Italo-snazzy for being a liquid-cooled bike (and the Panigale, has its heat under and, ahhh, it’s a thousand bucks more the 1100.

It even has 15,000-mile valve-adjust

In Anglo-Italian, this is one very bike .
