The 2013 Ducati 848 Evo Corse Special Edition gets a lightweight aluminium fuel tank and new matt black/gray paintjob, along with a red-painted trellis frame
Ducati have unveiled the latest iteration of their entry-level superbike at the Intermot in Cologne, Germany. The 848 Evo Corse Special Edition gets a new, lightweight, aluminium fuel tank and a matt black/gray paintjob. With 140 horsepower and 98Nm of torque from its Testastretta Evoluzione L-twin, as well as a host of high-tech electronics (ABS, traction control…), the 848 remains an intensely thrilling ride and is still beautiful to look at.
The 848 Evo Corse SE also gets fully adjustable Öhlins rear suspension, 330mm front brake discs with radial-mount Brembo monobloc calipers, lightweight 17-inch alloy wheels shod with Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres (120/70 at the front, 180/55 at the back) and weighs just 167kg dry. With a 2-year unlimited mileage warranty and a price tag that’s significantly lower than that of the Ducati Panigale, the 848 Evo Corse Special Edition is an attractive proposition.
