Update: The review is now up! Read it here.

Ducati has released a series of photos of the new Streetfighter 848 from the naked model’s European press launch.

Motorcycle.com‘s own Tom Roderick was there and he’ll have a full review for us Friday, but here’s a quick excerpt:

It wasn’t until the second session on the track that I was riding comfortably fast, pushing the Streetfighter closer to its performance envelope. The front end’s nervousness and higher handlebars dictate a light touch — hamfistedness results in a wondering front wheel. – Tom Roderick

We’ll see soon how Tom found the rest of his test of the Streetfighter 848  for now, enjoy the official press photos from Ducati after the jump.
