Things will be a little slow on Asphalt & Rubber today, as we are in the Palm Desert testing the new Ducati Streetfighter 848. We’ll be spending most of the day playing with its revised chassis & traction control, and getting used to the baby Fighter’s wet clutch & Testastretta 11° engine. You can follow our thoughts on the bike live via Twitter, and our last five tweets will automatically display here on this post.

    I hate you guys.

    Love the whole street fighter line, just wish they were a bit less expensive.

    Best looking naked sport bikes on the market bar none (IMHO) and the service intervals aren’t a pain in the ass anymore.

    Curious for a full review, as none of the Ducati dealerships in the Northeast allow test rides.

    Hey guys… hope you compare it to a Streetfighter 1098! Any differences in comfort, fit, and handling?
