2010_Ducati_848_Dark.jpgThe 2010 Ducati 848 Dark is painted in matte black and will retail for $1,000 less than the regular 848. No word on whether or not and sacrifices have been made to the spec level to bring that price down, but a quick look over this picture doesn’t reveal any immediately apparent mechanical changes.

Update: the 848 Dark doesn’t downgrade its spec to achieve the lower price and actually benefits from the same upgrades as the rest of the 2010 848 range: aluminum cam belt tensioner pulleys, LED dash and 30mm mirror extension kit.

    Now this is sex-on-wheels. Dark versions of Ducati’s have always intrigued me. It has to be the dichotomy of awesome looks at day and being super invisible at night. Nice Price

    Wow. It matches my helmet. I suppose I must force myself to be a slave to fashion, and buy one now. So if my wife asks why I have ANOTHER bike in the garage, that’s my excuse, and I am going to stick with it.

    I rode a 1098s this past week for the first time ever, and was actually surprised at how roomy and not-that-uncomfortable it was. Walloping power band was exactly as described however.

    So, next up is this puppy. Hopefully it is not too much different from its older brother.
