    Thumbs up Ducati UK Announce Launch Of New Stunning 848 Evo

    Absolute beauty, look at that



    Ducati UK has announced the launch of the new 848 EVO, which will feature a 140hp engine enhancement, new steering damper and Monobloc brakes for 2011.

    The 2011 848 EVO now further enhances Ducati's most impressive lightweight Superbike ever with more power from the Testastretta engine and more braking power from Brembo’s incredible Monobloc brake technology combining to provide an even more exciting way to enter the world of Ducati Superbikes.

    The “EVO” treatment applied to the 848 introduces a 6hp power boost to 140hp (103kW) and a torque increase to 72.3lb-ft (98Nm) that results in a razor-sharp and easy-to-use power delivery while the combination of the 848's legendary (168kg) chassis set-up and planet-stopping Brembo Monobloc brakes gives unthinkable braking performances most can only dream of.

    In pursuit of perfection, Ducati engineers have listened to passionate owners of the 848 Superbike since its delivery in 2008 and now enhance its specifications to deliver impressive performances whether riding through mid-town traffic or racing through track-day competition.

    Iconic features from the World Championship-winning machines, such as the twin under-seat silencers, single-sided swingarm, Trellis frame, beautiful race bodywork and steering damper, are all part of the 848's DNA. Its family resemblance assures that it is equipped with all the performance advancements of the Superbike family, while adding its own particular character and style.

    The early arrival of the 2011 848 EVO will see bikes available to order from 20th July 2010, with demo bikes arriving at dealers by end of July and customer orders shipped within September.

    The 848 EVO Dark Stealth and 848 EVO will be available at the same price as the outgoing 848 range including the traditional colour of Ducati red with red frame and black wheels and introducing the stunning new “dark stealth” with racing black frame and black wheels.

    • 848 EVODark Stealth - 9,995

    • 848 EVO - 10,695

    Soooo B.E.A utiful; really beautiful to look at.
    But Xionite - if it comes to India, it would be 14L isn't it?

    Beautiful Indeed!

    In India, it would be more than 14L for sure.. prolly under 15-16L bracket.

    P.S.: Only thing IMO it lack is CF exhaust cans.

    @^,

    Ducati provides a solution for that problem too, just ask them to replace the OEM exhausts with the termignoni CF cans.

    The termig cans make the ducatis' sound like marbles in a blender when it idles and a brilliant roar when it moves! :') (tears of joy!)
    Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

    Drool maal!

    I'd always 'realistically dreamt' (there's the biggest contradiction! ) that the 848 would be the easiest way for me to own a Duc. Now it gets even better. No doubt the dark stealth will sell mighty fine...

    OT- @ Stayen- which sports commuTOURer is in your avatar?
    You get the point?? :D

    saw it in flesh today at a ducati showroom.
    looks nice, but doesnt look as good as in the pictures, neverthless its a Ducati!!
    my question is , how different is it from the ducati 848 dark? is it just the 6 bhp increment?
    the reson being , i went to the showroom to ask about the dark , now i didnt have a clue about the newer evo model, they told me they have a yellow brand new 848 which they can fit dark components to and give it to me.
    it is chaper than the flagship ducati red.
    the paint looked lack-luster ( i know its meant to be a matt finish )
    but it doesnt have the appeal of the ducatis glossy black... mirror like ... absolute stunning colour.
    the price here in South Africa is roughly 160K which comes upto close to 10 lack rupees , not bad at all , but does it perform better than the suzuki gsx 750??????? i will wait for it to be seen. not that any one who loves ducati would care about the performnce comparision...... but for us mear mortals... it could provide a lovely subject of discussion.

    just a hint, for the same price u can get urself any brand new liter bike (jap), even the HRC spec 195 bhp fireblade and still save 20k (1.5 lac rupees)
    brand new aprilia RSV4R costs 185K , but there is a low mileage demo 2010 model going for 150K.

    dont u just hate it when life gives u options :-)
    drive safely... if not for you then for the sake of others!!
