2010 Ducati 848 Nicky Hayden Edition unveiled at Laguna

The very cool Ducati 848 Nicky Hayden Edition

Ducati has announced the 848 Nicky Hayden Edition, which was unveiled yesterday at the Laguna Seca circuit. The bike, which will only be available in the US, comes with a special paintjob, Nicky Hayden’s autograph on the gas tank and a sticker price of $14,495.

The Ducati 848 weighs 168kg and packs 134 horsepower and 96Nm of torque from its Testastretta Evoluzione engine. The 2010-spec bike gets new bits like LED dash illumination for better visibility, aluminium cam belt tensioner pulleys for reduced weight and moving mass (in turn enabling better acceleration) and a redesigned, lighter crankcase. And, of course, it looks just as cool as ever... :-)
