Ducati Streetfighter 848: review

Rear tyre a decent amount of abuse the DTC cut in

Charging down the straight at the new circuit with my knees hard to the slim tank, my wedged back into the and my face pressed into the nut. For a few seconds I got to enjoy the note at full whack, like a mean solo on a guitar.

For those few seconds I was pressed to tell the difference the Streetfighter 848 and the firm’s baby the 848 EVO.

Popping out from the clocks and hard on the brakes to off as much speed as possible the right-hand hairpin, the difference the 848 EVO and Streetfighter 848 was clear: with my splayed out on the Streetfighter’s wide my body took the full hit of the something I hadn’t expected but it helped slow me down to make the first apex.

Leaning on the wide bars, the 848 is eager to turn in. It’s got the rake as the 848 EVO but trail is up from to 103mm to give the Streetfighter better road manners but it diminish the turn in, this sharp.

On the first flick the footpeg goes down but for a millisecond before the flick On both sides, the footpegs spacers which, on the right side, keep your away from the exhaust Presumably, the ones on the left are to keep things even but mean the pegs go down sooner.

It’s no cause for concern.

The 848 features the radially mounted from the 848, not the monoblocs the 848 EVO and that’s actually a good They don’t have the of the monobloc calipers but nor does the need them. They the bike up from speed but also accomodate a dab from the without shocking the front-end.

The monoblocs fitted to the 848 EVO are savagely and would detract from the easy-going nature. The circuit lots of trail braking and the never protested.

There a whole lot of flowing corners at the circuit infact most are peg-scraping flicks from to right but at the back of the circuit are a couple of more open where the Streetfighter 848’s engine is eager to show you it can do.

Ducati have used the 11º camshaft as first in the Multistrada and then Diavel. The from the 848 EVO’s 37 º means the engine produces torque and slightly less I’d be lying if I told you my could tell the difference but I could feel was a more step-up when you roll on out of the corners.

It’s keen to up the revs and powers through the into the final right heading onto the start/finish I’ve not really mentioned the and Ducati will probably this but it’s Honda-like in of smoothness and delivery.

Bar the engine, two of the Streetfighter’s best when it comes to cornering are its bars and new 180/60 section Pirelli. This new profile, a slight change from a gives the tyre a rounder but also a larger contact The feel from the tyres, by the bike’s wide bars make this bike one of the tractable and predictable I’ve ridden.

Mid-corner you can adjust body position or trail the and it doesn’t upset the bike at It’s super-stable and feels at when it’s cranked

So how about the traction control? either a performance enhancement or a safety net, depending on way you look at it.

I only got the traction control to in when I pushed for it. Powering out of there’s no hint at a loss of the rear just digs in, and makes the front go slightly In the Streetfighter 848 onboard video.

I was it to chip in out of the fast right-hander at but only because I was provoking it.

be honest, even though the 848’s engine has plenty of it’s not a savage amount in the engine ready to ping you out of the the moment you tap the power on.

The fact is, the from the chassis is so vivid, know exactly where you are and how you’ve got left, long the traction control system in to give you a little guidance. If going on track when wet, then the traction might just kick in to you out, but not before you knew it was

The offshoot of an 848 EVO; you never this bike was going to be out of its on track, did you?

I didn’t it would be this good.
