Ducati Streetfighter 848 Review

Streetfighter 848 Review,

In all honesty, MCN expected great things of bike. On one hand the new bike was at surely only a ‘lesser’ of the already aging Streetfighter – a bike that has slipped the appeal ladder due to its £14,695 (Streetfighter S model only for and overpowering performance.

On the other, though significantly cheaper the 1198 version, at £10,121 still much pricier likely rivals such as Street Triple and MV’s 920. But then you get to ride a and suddenly you’ll be smitten – if riding in the twisties, where racing pedigree shines in its chassis. Couple this a far more user-friendly engine the 1098 version and you get a modern, … Ducati that

Take the engine; a high 849cc V-twin. It’s heritage of Testastretta engine Desmodromic valve actuation, inlet manifolds and is nothing but a smaller version of its still 1198 racing weapon. a claimed 132bhp and 69ftlb of it’s a potent little

That Testastretta engine is Pull away with a and the bike responds with clutch action to smooth the pulses and crank clatter for drive. Even with the control turned off, the action of rolling open the hard isn’t enough to the front wheel. But clutch it revs and 848 becomes a wheelie from Italy.

The engine feels lazy Ducati’s of old. It doesn’t off in a blaze of revs but rushes It’s deceptive.

The Streetfighter ace card is the perfect balance of and engine. Engine braking the rider’s decision to slow Brake hard and the chassis get fazed; no lifting rear no serious dive to cause the end to pirouette around the headstock.

so much feel from the that waiting for that yard or two to tip in for high corner becomes the norm. Not even a touch of brakes mid corner to upset the bike. The simple of raising the height of the one-piece by 20mm is in answer to Streetfighter customer feedback and it makes a big to rider comfort.

It gives a sit-in the saddle position rather than stretched on ye olde torture Overall the rider feels in from the off.

Add to this a proven chassis of single-sided Brembo radial calipers, adjustable Marzocchi USD front and Sachs rear shock, and you the Streetfighter 848 is a sporty little in every sense of the word, upright handlebars. There’s eight-way adjustable traction (DTC) and it’s wired up to play with a basic (DDA) system to read throttle position, rpm, gear selection etc. also the connections in place for a Performance accessory quick to be used.

The Streetfighter 848 also comes Pirelli Diablo Corsa 3 Varied compound tyres are durable but sticky on the edges it matters. What is different, is the fitment of 180/60 profile tyre instead of the tried and 180/55.

This is a first on any production

Ducatis are exotic, high-priced with iffy reliability Sorry, but this is wrong. record level is actually high and getting better all the thanks to a big push on build Ducati will, however, be considered exotic because of its breeding of design flair, sporting genes and technology.

quite a good sized of technology about the Streetfighter 848 and at over £10k we are paying for it. Speed Triple is cheaper and the two bikes tackling each on the road will make for reading. Ducati’s are always expensive, it’s the nature of the

Ducati Streetfighter (1098) – the bad-boy Streetfighter. 155bhp and of torque make it a formidable even for experienced riders.
