Just stopped by the Ducati dealer here in Salt Lake and checked out an 848. Now I want it... My bike is paid off and I could easily buy one. It is such a gorgeous bike. The price on them just went up to 13500 anyone know how much room they have as far as invoice and MSRP goes? I snapped a quick pic with my cell phone its horrible quality but you get the idea.

im not impressed w/ it.
spend 2k more and get a 1098, more power better features, and they are in the same insurance bracket.

if i had the dough, there would be a 1098S in my garage too.
the new KTM RC8 is tempting too.

the 848 just isnt enough of an improvement over a 600 for the price IMO.
it is a pantie dropper tho.
:werd


It is a Ducati though thats a huge inprovement over a 600. Im not looking for more power necessarily, just something kinda different. My abilities dont exceed the capabilities of the R6. But Im close.

Exactly what the Ducatii dealer told me when I was window shopping...of course they are just trying to make the extra dough but it does make sense w/all the extra features a 1098 comes with.

Price increase is to accommodate sliding of dollar against Euro... :thumbdown Get one... you won't regret it... :fact

Speculation, or have you ridden one???

Time to move out... that, or rent a separate garage...

im waiting for one of these...
preferably in white.


it looks sick in race trim too, this will be tearing it up in WSB next year.
I've already seen them in the flesh... I've got a deposit on one at the local dealer, just in case...
