2012 Ducati Streetfighter 848 Unveiled

Share this Article

Ducati revealed its new Streetfighter 848, adding a smaller-displacement version of the original 1099cc Streetfighter first introduced in 2009.

The 2012 Ducati Streetfighter 848 uses an 849cc version of the 11-degree Testastretta engine first introduced with the Multistrada, which should mean a similar 15,000 mile valve inspection intervals.

The design is similar to the larger Streetfighter including the dual exhausts on the right side. The suspension appears to be comprised of Marzocchi components instead of the Streetfighter’s Showa and Streetfighter S’s Ohlins components. Brakes are Brembos as well but they are not monobloc calipers.

Pricing has not been announced but the 2012 Ducati Streetfighter 848 will be available in dealerships in November in yellow, red or matte black.

    A hot machine, no doubt living up to Duc’s name – but my absolute favorite part of this article came in the very first paragraph – “15,000 mile valve inspection intervals.” Ducati’s valve jobs are so notorious they get immediate attention.
