The 848, as all the Superbike family, is equipped with a unique single-sided swingarm. The Engine: ers were encouraged to re-think the construction technique of this element. The solution was to produce the main operational components using individual aluminium castings so as to ensure strength around the pivot points, wheel hub and suspension links, with fabricated aluminium sections used to complete the construction into a single, beautifully Engine: ered component.

Rear Suspension:
Highlighting the way in which individual components are influenced by each other, the new lightWeight: Trellis Frame: and single-sided swingarm have enabled a more compact and further Weight: -saving Rear Suspension: linkage system to be used featuring separate lower pick-up points for the push-rod and suspension unit. This ‘tandem’ design effectively reduces stress around the linkage pick-up area of the Trellis Frame: . Working together with this highly efficient linkage is a fully adjustable Showa single shock for the 848, the same as the 1098.

Front Suspension:
At the front the new 848 is equipped with fully adjustable 43mm Showa forks with radial mounts. This type of Front Suspension: is professionally track-tuned and offers superior road holding, delivers superior feedback, and helps every rider to be more confident and in control.

Brembo Monobloc calipers
The 848 brake system is characterized by M4 calipers using four 32mm pistons and two radial mounted pads. Matched to the calipers are two 320mm discs and the combination of these elements achieves spectacular braking power.

Super lightWeight: wheels
The new 848 also benefits from lightWeight: Marchesini Y-shaped spoke wheels. The Weight: saving of 250gr achieved on the front wheel substantially reduces the moment of inertia and enhances the 848’s change of direction and braking performance. The rear wheel is just as impressive with a complete redesign for its single-sided swingarm application that has resulted in a reduction of over 1kg compared with traditional Ducati single-sided swingarm fitments. Finally a 5.50” wheel fitted with a 180/55 tyre guarantees the maximum agility at the rear.

The Ducati 848 gets the same series of performance and style upgrades over the outgoing 749 the 1098 received over its predecessor, the 999.

The Engine: is the key change in the new bike over the old 749 – a 100cc larger Testastretta Evoluzione unit. The result is a claimed 134bhp – just 5bhp short of the 999 and more than 30bhp more than the 749!
