Take a good A or B road and a relatively low powered but good handling motorcycle for today’s standards, and you can have some fun. Do the same thing on a Ducati and it will be a great experience. The new fuel-injected Desmo L-Twin Engine: , and the new six-speed gearbox fitted to the latest Supersport 800 seem to make a huge difference when it comes to riding on ordinary roads. The bike is sharp, it feels planted to the ground and almost nothing will deviate this bike from getting round any corner you care to throw at it.

The two-valve per cylinder Engine: fitted to the 800 has reasonable bottom and mid-range performance (74.5 HP @ 8250 rpm) but it does suffer a lack of a top end urge. Shifting at anything over 8,000rpm is almost wasting your time as you are well out of the torque curve by then (70 Nm – 7,1 Kgm @ 6250 rpm) so short shifting is the way to make good progress with this bike. If you are a power fiend then this bike will not suit you in the slightest, any reasonable Japanese 4cyl sportsbike of 600cc or above would comprehensively blow its doors off when acceleration enters the equation.
