The Ducati Streetfigther 848 combines the 848 Testastretta 11° engine and a new Trellis frame with Superbike 848EVO-derived geometry. This mix assures a great handling and a rush of power which is kept in check by the advanced Ducati Traction Control system.
The engine is based on the Testastretta Evoluzione and delivers 132 hp at 10,000 rpm and a peak torque of 9.5 kgm at 9,500 rpm. Compared to the Testastretta Evoluzione, the 848 Testastretta 11°’s overlap angle has been reduced from 37° to 11° to ensure a fluid power delivery, a wider power band and reduced consumption and emissions.
The engine is combined with a 2-1-2 exhaust system made from weight-saving 1mm thick steel with 58mm to 63.5mm diameter pipes. The system uses two lambda probes and an electronic valve in the mid-section to deliver increase performance and a wide spread of power.

The new 2013 Ducati Streetfighter S naked has a lot to love. For the starters, it comes with a jaw dropping style, a comfortable riding position, new controls, Ducati’s Traction Control (DTC) and sharp design elements which enhance its sporty appearance.
Power comes from the popular 1098 Testastretta Evoluzione, a unit that made its debut in 2007 and represented the basis of the motor that helped Ducati win the Superstock and Superbike World titles. The engine delivers a massive 85lb-ft of torque and 155hp, and it gives both the best power-to-weight and the best torque-to-weight ratios in its class.
The 2013 Ducati Streetfighter S sits on lightweight Marchesini 5-Spoke wheels finished in black. The wheels are fitted with Brembo’s Monobloc caliper race technology which includes twin Monobloc callipers each with four 34mm pistons that grip huge 330mm discs.

Ducati has finally made their much awaited move – go against the BMW R1200GS – and they did it in their own characteristic style. Not only the new Multistrada 1200 looks one-of-a-kind, but it is also backed up by a 150hp Italian engine.
During no less than two years, we’ve seen the new Ducati Multistrada being developed, rendered and tested until finally finding out that two versions will be available – a standard version with optional ABS and a high-spec S version (how does an Ohlins electronically adjustable suspension system sound to you?). This last ramifies into two editions – Sport and Touring.
The Sport Edition can be distinguished by the presence of carbon fiber parts such as the engine covers, front air intakes, rear mudguard and spoilers.
The Touring Edition’s distinguishing features are the panniers, heated grips and a center stand. More information as we have it.
Update: Press release is attached after the jump.
