General Information on the 2012 Ducati Streetfighter 848
For 2012 the Streetfighter 848 will be available in three colors; Ducati red, stealth black (matte black) and fighter yellow. With the Ducati red version, the frame will come in a red finish. Retail is set at $12,995. Engine type, liquid-cooled L-Twin cylinder four-stroke, 4 valves/cyl. Its displacement is 849.4cc with bore x stroke of 94 x 61.2mm. Compression ratio is 13:2:1 with Marelli EFI, elliptical throttle bodies equivalent to 60mm diameter, single injector/cyl induction. Wheelbase 58.1 in. (1475mm) and seat height: 33 in. (840mm).
From just above 4000 rpm, the bike builds that power in a linear fashion, pulling well past the 8000 rpm mark all the way up to the 10,750 rpm rev limiter. The bike’s 43mm inverted Marzocchi front fork and Sachs rear shock are rather soft, and the factory settings forced the heavier U.S. journalists to ride with absolute finesse in the canyons. Because of revised ergos and an engine which provides much more usability, the Streetfighter 848 is exactly what the average rider needs.
