Design

Despite living in the shadow of its big brother, the Ducati 1098, the Ducati 848 has plenty to shout about. As well as its desirable badge, this sportbike boasts an alluring design and a reduction in weight – making it even easier to handle. If you’re looking for a stylish ride that’ll make light of your Sunday afternoon jaunts, the Ducati 848 is sure to be right up your street.

Performance and Handling

Ducati motorcycles are known for their impressive speeds, and the 848 is no exception. The musical note from the exhaust, combined with a top speed of 166mph, makes this superbike a strong contender in its class.

Ducati 848 Specs

    • Engine: 8 valve V-Twin, liquid cooled, 849cc
    • Power: 132bhp @ 10,000rpm
    • Torque: 93.5 Nm @ 9,500 rpm
    • Fuel Economy: 27mpg

Features

When it comes to equipment, the Ducati 848 comes with a Showa rear shock, a multi-functional LCD dash and a single sided swingarm. Optional tech includes the Ducati Data Analyser (DDA). This clever plug-in logging system records all of your essential data – including engine speed, distance travelled, lap times, engine temperature and throttle position. The 848 also comes with lighter steering than the 1098, thanks to the 180-section rear tyre.
