Ducati Streetfighter 848 2015

Who doesn’t love the laser-like handling of a no-holds-barred racer-replica? But man, those bikes can be uncomfortable if you’re not ripping around a racetrack. Based largely on the 848 EVO (predecessor of the new 899 Panigale) the 848 Streetfighter is fitted with a tapered aluminum handlebar and lower footpegs that give long legs a break. Ducati also ash-canned the full-wrap fairing found on the 848 EVO, exposing the steel trellis frame and wet-clutch-equipped, claimed 132-hp V-twin. Traction control is standard on this naked middleweight, which is available this year in Red оr Dark Stealth.
