Ducati 848 Evo Corse SE: traction control comes to supersport

Dailies, Galleries -

By

A long, bizarre name with a single point. The MV Agusta F3 may have premiered traction control on a supersport motorcycle a couple days ago, but, due to Ducati’s larger volumes, this Ducati 848 Evo Corse SE is probably going to be the middleweight remembered for breaking the barrier. Like any of the lastest superbikes, 848 riders will now be able to get on the throttle earlier, harder and safer, giving this bike a real world performance advantage.

In addition to 8-mode TC, Evo Corse SE trim gives the 848 a red/white/black paint job, a quick shifter and 330mm brake discs clamped by Brembo Monoblocks. Expect a small premium over the $13,995 848 Evo.

    You know, this really is the golden age of motorcycling.
    All the power, the control, the precision!
    This is an embarrassment of riches.

    Live it while you can my droogies.
    Come the Revolution, such alluring baubles will be outlawed.

      You are right about the “embarrassment of riches”. I am having a very very difficult time deciding which motorcycle is going to be my next infatuation/romance. Like walking into room filled with beautiful woman and being told you can only have ONE. Other readers of HFL may have more room in their stable.

        I’m going to need a bigger garage…

    I don’t buy a bike until it has at least 3 suffixes and letters in the name.

    Beautiful. Around here the standard evo is 14 250€ and this one should be 15 690 € (source), that’s indeed a very small premium.
