Best mid-sized Ducati yet!
By Joel(Owner), Sep. 16, 2008

Gorgeous Flying Machine. A Dream on the track.
By eric(Owner), Oct. 8, 2014
Ducati is anything but typical, and the 848 is an exceptional expression of this. It's family. It's spectacular. It's exhaust note is musical and powerful. Every aspect is designed. It's the kind of thing that gets people talking to you and has a particular culture and intellectual following. It ge... Read Full Review
