I took advantage of the Duc Truck in the Atlanta area to ride the new 848 at NPR Ducati. When I arrived a lineup of delectable Ducati awaited and, after my of the newly released Monster I aimed for the baby Ducati in brilliant white. The 848 reintroduced to the Superbike line (although the new sports the same color) and is no denying the bikes is striking to at.

As the entry level model in the range the 848 sports a wet clutch is supposedly an attempt to pander to from Japanese brands research showed only the liked the ball bearing in a tin dry clutch rattle.

Getting on the I am struck but how narrow it is, the trellis tightly wrapping around the L-twin engine. The rearsets are as as the bars are low.

I admit to preferring the rawer of the older 4-valve engines offer more character I don’t mean by that, they break down There is no denying the sophistication of the 848 but it is too anodyne for my tastes, it dear I say it me of the Honda RC51 engine. complaint however can’t the fact that this is a bike as the English would
