First pics: 2008 Ducati 848

The Ducati 749 replacement – the Ducati 848 – is out now. The styling is the same as the multiple award-winning 1098, and at 168 kilos, the 848 is is 20kg lighter that the 749 and 5kg lighter than the 1098. Less weight and more power is, of course, the way to go and the new Ducati does not disappoint.

The 848 is powered by Ducati’s 848cc Testastretta Evoluzione L-twin, which makes 134 horsepower – 30bhp up on the old 749. In fact, that 848 has a better power-to-weight ratio than the Ducati 999! Should be quite a cracking machine for those who can’t afford a 1098… :-)

With 134bhp, the 2008 Ducati 848 is only 5 horsepower down on the old 999...
