Ducati Streetfighter 848

Posted: 29 Sep 2011 10:00 PM PDT

What’s up people? Ducati launched its new 848 Streetfighter at a brand new circuit in Italy Wednesday morning.

It is running a 180/60 tire that Ducati hopes will give it a bigger contact patch at full lean and better ride comfort. The colors available are red, yellow, black, and differences to the bigger Streetfighter are a new swingarm and 20mm taller bars for a more upright, relaxed riding position.

It's going to be an interesting battle between the Triumph and the new Ducati – and with MV Agusta Brutale 920 joining the party, 2012 is going to see a battle royal in the naked sector.
