The Ducati 848 EVO was launched in 2010, as an evolution of the original 848 sport bike. The bike featured minor changes like black swingarm, Mono-block Brembo brake calipers, steering damper mount and a slightly tweaked engine.
The 848 EVO gets a V-twin 849cc 8 valve engine producing a maximum of 138bhp and 96Nm of torque. It is chain driven and gets a six-speed gearbox that transmits all the power to the rear-wheels.
The motorcycle is built on a rigid, light and a simplified tube layout and gets Showa fully adjustable upside down forks at the front and Showa fully adjustable monoshock at the rear. Stopping power comes from four-piston calipers biting into two 320mm discs at the front and dual-piston calipers at the rear rubbing a 245mm disc for friction. It gets a 120/70 ZR17 at the front and 180/55 ZR17 at the rear.
Dimensionally it is 2,100mm long, 1,100mm tall and a wheel base of 1,430mm separates the front and rear tyres. The motorcycle tips the scales at 168 kgs. Currently it is available only in two colours – Red and Black.
