2010 Ducati 848 in Black: Welcome to the Abyss

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

For 2010, Ducati has added the option of a matte black finish to its 848 Superbike line. Originally thought to be a “Dark” version of the 848, the middle-weight Superbike shares all the same specs as the other color’s of the rainbow, including the new aluminum cam belt tensioner pulleys, LED dash and 30mm mirror extension kit.

Accustomed to the shiny, almost mirror like, finishes that adorn black Ducatis, the 848’s paint is truly devoid of color. No reflections, no specular highlights, nothing. It’s like looking into a heartless vacuum that threatens to steal your soul…and it creeps us out. Click past the jump for a full photo series of the new 848 color scheme.
