Photoshoot of the Week: November 11th-17th 2019 – Ducati 848 & Nemi

Lately, in 2013, Ducati announced the 848 was replaced by the 899 Panigale. Even the producers put the news out there for a while, it was a shock for me, that model was my very first motorbike I tried and reviewed (even I was never able to buy it, 848 wasn’t exactly cheap). I thought: time really flies. The same thing I’m thinking right now, nearly at the end of 2019, looking back at the past: over a decade ago the 848 first appeared in 2007 as a 2008 model year bike. As Ducati couldn’t race the 848 in supersport, there was no higher spec SP version and also no S variants. The 848 became the 848 Evo in 2010 (technically a 2011 model) and featured slight changes to the engine’s heads, cams, pistons and fuel injection system that boosted power by 6bhp. A Dark version was also released that kept the price slightly in check thanks to its black paint. In 2012 the Evo Corse appeared, which brought with it traction control and a quickshifter but no engine upgrades, while the Evo Corse SE (special edition) arrived in 2013 with an aluminium tank, Ohlins shock and a few styling alterations. In the end Ducati choosed to move on to a more powerful and electronically advanced motorbike, the 899 (which, I have to admit, it was far more rideable).
We may not like all of Ducati decisions – the 848 Evo was so stylish, the natural evolution of the perfect classic Ducati 916 – but all we can do is track the changes as they come. And that’s exactly what we’ve done with this photoshoot. Here are all of the exclusive photos of superhot, sassy ‘n’ attractive Italian socialite (and erotic actress 😲) Nemi trying for Ridin’GirlsBlog the lengendary 848 in the backyard of a … well, I really don’t know where the hell she is (the gardener probably fired himself a long long time ago – and I can’t blame him/her). Anyway, can’t get your mind on them weeds if you’re eyeballing over her !

The Ducati 848 is a sport bike with a 849 cc (51.8 cu in) 90° V-twin engine manufactured by Ducati. It was announced on November 6, 2007 for the 2008 model year, replacing the 749, although the 848 model name was already listed on the compatible parts table for the 1098 fuel tank, giving away the secret a few months early. The 848 makes a tested 86 kW (115.6 hp) at 10,000 rpm and 84.1 N⋅m (62 lb⋅ft) at 8,250 rpm. With a manufacturer claimed dry weight of 168 kg (370 lb), the 848 undercuts its larger displacement sibling, the 1198, by 5 kg (11 lb).
Don’t fool yourself, the Ducati 848 isn’t just a small 1098, it’s far more than that. The 848 is a proper fast (top speed is 166mph), fine-handling, gorgeous Ducati superbike in its own right. It’s no longer the poor relation to its big brother, like the 748 and 749 used to be. Although the more powerful 1098 is faster in a straight line and around a track, in the real world the Ducati 848 is every bit as fast.
Chassis-wise the Ducati 848 is almost identical to the 1098, save for slightly lower-spec, but still fully-adjustable, Showa forks and Brembo radial brakes. These cheaper units don’t harm the 848’s performance through the bends one bit though. Most significantly the Ducati 848 has a half-inch narrower rear wheel and a 180-section rear tyre, which gives the 848 greater agility and lighter steering than its bigger brother. In true Ducati superbike style the 848 is rock-solid stable in the corners, at the expense of slightly slow steering through flip-flop chicanes and very tight hairpins.
The liquid-cooled Desmodromic, 849cc V-twin Testastretta (Italian for ‘narrow head’) engine was designed and developed specifically for the Ducati 848; it’s not just a cheaper, sleeved-down version of the 1098’s motor. Making a true 122bhp and 66ftlb of torque at the rear wheel the Ducati 848’s motor is not only is very strong, but the power delivery is super-smooth and very linear, too. Compared to the 749, the Ducati 848 makes 20bhp and 10ftlb more, while weighing almost 30kg less.
Summing it up: a superb bike with its own identity. Plenty of performance, great styling and desirability. No reliability issues to date and affordable servicing. As to the 848 ‘looking Japanese’ – Laser eye surgery is available for those suffering from cataracts … Highly recommended (even if it’s out of production by now), in red or white and the best alternative to the GSXR 750.

Ducati 848 & Nemi on Ridin'GirlsBlog
Ducati 848 Evo … that makes me think of Evo Morales by assonance. As you may know former Bolivian President Evo Morales left the country Monday amid worsening political violence in the aftermath of disputed elections. Ironically the Ducati 848 Evo motorbike is out of production. Even the recent political golpe in Bolivia is a far more serious isse, both these fact make me very sad. “We will come back,” Evo Morales recently assured supporters, quoting the 18th-century indigenous resistance leader, “and we will be millions as Tupac (Katari) said”. And I think I know which motorbike he could use when the democracy finally will be restored and he’ll make his triumphal entry in La Paz. Meanwhile “while I’m alive,” he said, “the fight goes on”. Good luck, my friend!
