Here is your first look at the new 2012 Ducati Streetfighter 848 expected to be formally unveiled this September.
The tell tail signs are the 5 bolt hub on the rear wheel just like the Ducati 848EVO (the bigger engined Streetfighter has a 6 bolt hub) and the new front end. The whole front end looks suspiciously like the one on the newly released Ducati Monster 1100 EVO which specifies a Marzocchi fork with Brembo radial Brembo calipers.
Gone are the monobloc calipers of the larger engined Streetfighter presumably to help keep the price in a user friendly range for what will be, along with the 848EVO, an entry level 4 valve model. What isn’t clear yet is what spec the engine will be in. Ducati News Today suspects Ducati will mount the 11º head that features improved service intervals and lower end torque to both this Streetfighter 848 and a presumed Multistrada 848 model to follow.
