2014 Ducati Streetfighter 848 unveiled at the EICMA

The 2014 Ducati Streetfighter 848

Ducati have unveiled the Streetfighter 848, at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, Italy. Powered by the erstwhile 848 superbike’s Testastretta L-twin that produces 132bhp at 10,000rpm and 93.5Nm of torque at 9,500 revs, and with a dry weight figure of just 169kg, the Streetfighter 848 remains an excellent super-naked that offers outstanding style and performance.

With a full suite of electronics – 8-level traction control (DTC) that’s been tuned to “allow” wheelies and burnouts, anti-lock brakes (ABS) and Ducati data analyser (DDA) – the Streetfighter is able to offer maximum performance even at the very limit of its capabilities. For 2014, the bike is available in red, with red frame and black wheels, and matt gray, with black frame and black wheels.

Other bits on the 2014 Streetfighter 848 include fully adjustable 43mm Marzocchi USD forks, fully adjustable Sachs monoshock, cast aluminium single-sided swingarm, twin 320mm brake discs with Brembo 4-piston radial-mount calipers at front, and Y-spoked alloy wheels shod with 120/70 (front) and 180/60 (rear) Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa tyres. Service intervals for the bike has been set at 24,000km which should keep owners very happy indeed.
