848 Grrrrrrrreat!
By Rob(Owner), Sep. 16, 2008
Most people who snub Ducati think they are just toys for those with money to burn. Too slow, unreliable, expensive to maintain, etc.



I will admit that I was one of those "snubbers" fiercely loyal to Honda (and still have 3 Hondas in my garage! My wife's 600rr and two dirtbikes)

By Terry Barker(Owner), Sep. 15, 2008
The first thing you have to accept about Ducati Super Bikes is that they are designed to race. As delivered, they lack some of the "comforts" of other sport bikes but these bikes are basically race bikes with lights. Do not expect it to feel like your 600RR!

duc 848
By Ramsin Yonadam(Owner), Sep. 15, 2008
my ducati 848 has been a pleasure. The powers great, torque makes it real fun in the twisties, and the handling is a dream, its so 'flickable' for lack of better words, i find it very inspiring. The tank of the bike feels narrow compared to most jap bikes, but its similar to the triumph daytona 675.... Read Full Review

Best bike evaaaaaaaaar!!
By Patrcik Muirhead(Owner), Sep. 16, 2008
Went from owning many I4's from various manufacturers to the 848 and I won't be going back. It handles as well or better then any Big 4 I've owned and sounds phenominal. Being narrower, I find the bike easier to ride. I'm 6' and it's the most comfortable bike I've owned. I don't get the cramped leg ... Read Full Review

Best mid-sized Ducati yet!
By Joel(Owner), Sep. 16, 2008
Having owned several previous Ducs. I have to say this new 848 is an amazing, perhaps even evolutionary improvement. Better power and amazing torque. Shoot, it could best the old 996 and stick with a 999. If you want to avoid looking like every other Accord, oops, I mean CBR owner out there, you can... Read Full Review
