2013 Ducati 848EVO Corse SE Looks Fearsome
A pure racing machine built for the aggressive riders and not for the faint of heart, the 848 comes with a lightweight construction and all the nifty technology Ducati has to offer at the present time.
The Ducati 848EVO Corse SE boasts a 6 BHP power increase for 2013, as the Testastretta engine now reaches 140 BHP, but still the torque is delivered in a smooth, controllable manner. With all the brute power of the Ducati 848EVO Corse SE, serious braking was a must, therefore the 330mm rotors and Brembo monoblock calipers are standard.
Even more, the Ducati 848EVO Corse SE comes with a steering damper to add more stability and provide the rider with more confidence. Showa fork and an Öhlins rear shock complement the lightweight but sturdy tubular Trellis frame.
Unlike other Ducatis, the 2013 848EVO Corse SE comes with an aluminium tank, 1 kg lighter and with increased fuel capacity (a 2.5 l extra). The bike sports all the digital gimmicks needed for increased performance: Ducati Traction Control and Quick Shift, and is ready for the MotoGP-class Data Analyzer system. More from Ducati at the EICMA, next month.
