Confident contender – Supreme fighter
The confident and urban-friendly Streetfighter 848 continues the stylish, exciting and high-performance challenge from this unique naked family. The Streetfighter delivers pure motorcycle enjoyment with the sophisticated combination of a brilliantly engineered 848 Testastretta 11° engine and the enhanced geometry of a frame that ensures optimum agility with confidence-inspiring “feel”. The user-friendliness created by the smooth and flexible power delivery, excellent ergonomics and Ducati Traction Control (DTC), combines with Ducati’s unique fighter style to
create pure excitement.
The Ducati Streetfighter scored a round one knock-out when it entered the ring for the first time at the Milan show back in November 2008. Its supreme elegance stole the ‘Most Beautiful Bike’ award and raised the bar for extreme nakeds. Its asphalt-ripping reputation became the desire of sport naked connoisseurs throughout the world and the Streetfighter 848 further strengthens that desire with everyday accessibility.
The model is dressed in red with a red frame and black wheels.
The Streetfighter culture was born on the backstreets of Northern Europe during the late 70s and 80s. If the Café racer movement had taken traditional bikes and transformed them to establish out-and-out sportbikes, then Streetfighters were definitely anti-establishment. They evolved by removing the fairings from sport bikes, fitting higher bars and customising to create high-performance, over-the-top nakeds. Ducati took that concept and applied their own Italian sophistication to a stunning, factory-prepared Streetfighter.
The Ducati Streetfighter is equipped with everything that made the Superbike a legend: Awesome L-Twin muscle with ride-enhancing torque, thoroughbred chassis technology, beautiful single-sided swingarm, racebred brakes and pure, sophisticated class. While the tank and seat shapes leave no doubt as to the Streetfighter’s roots, it is the upright and commanding riding position that really starts to shape the character of this ultimate naked. Minimalistic controls, instrumentation and headlight design leave the front looking clean and mean, while twin-stacked right-side mufflers at the rear leave the tail-end high and sharp. No other Ducati has ever achieved such an aggressive stance while providing a comfortable, empowering, controllable and enjoyable ride. Add street-going Ducati Traction Control as standard equipment and Ducati Data Analysis-ready electronics and it’s clear that the Streetfighter perfectly balances the essential DNA of an exciting naked motorcycle with the latest race-derived electronic technology.
