The Ducati Streetfighter, as the name suggests, is part of the streetfighter-style motorcycle series and is available in two versions- Streetfighter 848 and Streetfighter S. Both these bikes are stripped down and restyled versions of the 1098 and 848 Evo superbikes, though they have been tweaked to give them their own unique character. Both the Streetfighter bikes are based around the light but strong tubular steel trellis frame and share the wheelbase and other dimensions. Both the bikes get Ducati Traction Control (DTC) which has been programmed with wheel-spin tolerance and offers eight profiles for different response. Both the bikes get a two to one to two exhaust layout.
The Ducati Streetfighter 848 is powered by a 849cc L-twin engine which produces 132bhp @ 10000rpm and 94Nm @ 9500rpm torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox through a wet multiplate clutch system. The front Marzocchi forks are connected to 10-spoke aluminum wheels, while the rear gets a fully adjustable Sachs monoshock. The Ducati Streetfighter 848 has Marzocchi 43mm fully adjustable usd forks suspension in front and Progressive linkage with fully adjustable monoshock. Aluminium single-sided swingarmat suspension in rear tyre.
The Ducati Streetfighter 848 is avaliable red and dark stealth shades. Ducati StreetFighter 848 competes Aprilia Tuono, Kawasaki Z800 and Benelli TNT899.
