Sorry Ducatisti, there is no Panigale-inspired supersport-class Ducati Superbike this model year, but those Italians have made an update to their sport bike line-up for new year with the 2013 Ducati Superbike 848 EVO Corse SE. Sort of like the 2012 Ducati Superbike 848 EVO Corse SE that was debuted last year at EICMA, this one has an aluminum tank, but with the added bonus of a special two-tone “Ducati Test Team” livery.

The Ducati Superbike 848 EVO Corse SE also has Ducati Traction Control, Ducati Quick Shift, an Öhlins rear shock, and upgraded 330mm brake discs. Certainly not what anyone was misguidedly hoping for from the Bologna brand at INTERMOT, but you have to admit, that’s one dead sexy paint job. Expect the real Ducati goodness to drop next month at EICMA. More photos after the jump.

  • Oh Yes I would buy one…

    Beautiful.. My favourite livery for the Ducati 848 so far!

  • Westward

    Methinks I could use one of those…

    The last Ducati of any beauty. Sorry Ducatisti, you’ll have to wait until they fire the design team and issue a public apology (again) before they start selling desirable bikes once more.

    @Gary: To each their own. I’ve seen the 1098/848 next to the 1199 and, as beautiful as the previous generation was, the 1199 makes them look some what dated. Then again, thats my opinion.

    On another note, is Ducati truly NOT going to introduce their supersport for 2013? If so, I guess I should just get the MV Agusta F3. Can someone confirm or do we have to wait until EICMA?

    Ducati ? Trying to move out the last overbuilt 848 frames and engines/cleaning your warehouse to make room for the baby Panigale ?
    It never fails, everytime an OEM starts doing special edition this and that the new replacement is never far behind such “moves”.

    I dig the stealth paint job.

    @ML: Make sure MV fixed the fueling issues on their 675 Darling Triple before u drop that kind of coin…last time i heard about it it was pretty damn BAD and they were scrambling like eggs and running like chickens with their heads cut off trying to get it right.
    The Euro specs bikes where rushed and pushed out the factory doors with the SHITTY FUELING Maps…says a lot about MV.

    @Jensen: IF the goodness you are talking about is the mid-size Multi and Hyper, they can keep it.
    Slap me back to life when they uncover the Baby Panigale. Zzzzzz………

    I much prefer the 1198/848 style. The Panigale is nice but looks Japanese from some angles, don’t like the tail or exhaust and it’s small. It’s extremely overhyped too!!

    Even after looking at the 2012 evo corse paint and the 2013 color, I still like my 2009 white ducati 848.
