Ducati announced the 2012 Streetfighter 848 on Monday and Ducatisti immediately asked how it would it be priced. In the Superbike range the 848EVO is priced aggressively to attract riders switching from Japanese machinery and it is expected the same will apply for the newest addition to the Streetfighter family. Now Ducati Australia has announced pricing for that market.
In Oz the Streetfighter 848 will be priced at $18,990 + On Road Costs with the first deliveries arriving this December.
“The new Streetfighter 848 is a fantastic extension of the already highly successful Streetfighter family.” said Warren Lee – CEO, Ducati Australia. “Its extremely attractive price position and specification level, including wet clutch for easy urban use and Ducati Traction Control for added safety, will make it an ideal mid-capacity sports-performance naked bike for many riders.”
To get an idea of what that pricing means for the US market consider that in Australia the Monster 1100EVO will run you $1,000 less than the Alley Fighter and the 848EVO Superbike costs exactly $1,000 more. In case you were wondering the Streetfighter 1098 will cost you a further $5,000.
If the Streetfighter 848 is priced literally the same way in the US market then the price would be $12,995 exactly in between the Monster 1100EVO and the color version of the 848EVO. If you can embrace the dark side then Ducati will sell you a 848 in ‘Dark Stealth’ for $12,995 saving you a grand.
If the Dark Stealth version of the Streetfighter 848 is sold at a discount (as to our knowledge has been the case for all previous blacked out Ducatis beginning with the Monster 600 Dark of 1998) then expect it to sit at $12,495 or even $11,995 if we’re lucky.
The new model will be available from as early as this November with deliveries in the US expected in January 2012.
