New Ducati Streetfighter 848

Its been a in the works for a little while now, smaller spunkier Streetfighter from Ducati. I have always been a fan of the Streetfighter, its very agile and I like the aggressive looks of the machine. Now they have come up with Superbike 848’s sibling with this new machine, and they have gone with Ducati yellow for its premiere, personally I’m a big fan of the red. This bike would be very nice on some twisty roads, I wonder if it has shrunken in size as well, I hope not.

Ducati has brought over the Testastretta 11° engine configuration for the smaller Streetfighter, meaning not only will the Streetfighter 848 have a wet-clutch, but also a 15,000 mile valve service interval. While Ducati is mum on many of the new SF 848′s details, the Bologna brand says the bike will come with the Ducati Traction Control system (DTC), and from what we can see in the photos, unsurprisingly lower-spec Brembo brakes and Marzoochi forks, instead of the Superbike 848′s monoblocs and Sachs units.

Street Fighter Stop Motion – Ryu VS Ken

The last few games of Street Fighter have been amazing and I hope that they come out with an animation soon, I never get tired of the Streetfighter Saga. Now this stop motion animation is a work of art, it looks so damn good and surprisingly this all took two days and was done with a Nikon D5100 with very little special effects.

Ducati Street Fighter In Kuwait

I couldn’t believe these beauties in front of my eyes, Ducati have perfected an Art form. I got a text from Salem @ Tristar telling me that the Streetfighter and the Streetfighter S were both on the show room floor. I took off as soon as I landed from Singapore. The pearl white from Ducati is beautiful from every angle, they even had one pearl white 1198 just behind the two of these beauties. Then there was the red Streetfighter S which I couldn’t keep my hands off of, I really wanted to throw my leg over the machine and take off. I want to congratulate the owners of the machine whoever they are going to be.

Ducati have really struck a cord with these beauties and I really think they will expand to other beautiful machines. I didn’t know how they could improve on the 1098, then they came out with the 1198. I can’t wait to try the Streetfighter, it looks so enticing, and inviting to ride, I bet the experience would be exhilarating. The Streetfighter is selling 5250 KD and the Streetfighter S is going for 6250 KD, and I think these prices are comparable to the UK. The beauty of the lines, the curves, the shades of this machine have been crafted by an artist, it calls to any rider next to it.

Ducati Streetfighter Video

 

The Ducati Streetfighter is a work of art in my opinion, Ducati is going the right way. I love riding my 1098s, so I’m assuming there are going to be similar riding characterisitics with this bike. Then there is the DTC system which is the new traction control system. I really like it in red and I’m assuming a few people are going to get them in Kuwait. I like how they made the youtube video which looks very raw, just like the bike.

Ducati Streetfighter coming to Kuwait

A great chassis, a powerful engine, lots of torque, a nice single sided swing arm and good brakes make this an exciting machine. The Streetfighter is a different machine with a up right riding position, it really looks to be the best naked bike yet. I like the design of this machine, and it seems to be coming ot Kuwait around April for 5200 KD for the standard one and 6100 KD for the Streetfighter S in Red.

I really like the red version of the bike, you can check out the pictures below. Also the white looks really good too, this is one beautiful machine.

Ducati Street Fighter

Ducati has come out with the perfect machine, it is something a lot of people have been waiting for. After the success of the 1098 I think this is the perfect follow up punch. The Ducati Streetfight/S gets the 155 bhp engine from the 1098.

Longer wheelbase then the 1098, more relaxed riding position from the straight bar. It does have it unique look from the bodywork and headlight which I really like. It will for sure have a unique riding capability which I would like to try. Its price range is from $14-15,000 and it will be available in the Spring of 2009.
