Steve....this bike is very tempting @ this price! MSRP $12,995


LIGHTWEIGHT MOVES—HEAVYWEIGHT PUNCH
The new 848 enjoys all the performance advancements of the entire Superbike family, while adding its own innovations to redefine the middleweight sport bike class.

The words 'agile' and 'refined' aptly describe the 848. At 369 lbs the 848 is an amazing 44 lbs lighter than its predecessor, and a significant 11 lbs lighter than its larger capacity brother, the 1098.

The highly advanced 848 engine uses an improved method of engine case production in which cases are vacuum die-cast formed. While providing significant weight savings of more than 6.5 lbs, this method also ensures consistent wall thickness and increased strength. Further refinements include a sophisticated wet clutch that offers 2.2 lbs less weight, a much higher service life, improved clutch feel and quiet operation.

With the first twist of the wrist, the powerful rush of the Testastretta Evoluzione engine confirms that the rules have changed. The 848's 134 hp is not only 30% more powerful than its predecessor, but it provides a power-to-weight ratio even better than the potent 999. The 848—a new class of Superbikes.

2008 MSRP $12,995

I am happy to say that this will be the next bike I purchase!! (for my wife wink wink) SHe has seen it and fallen in love with it!!! We are going to the closest Duc dealer this weekend to find out about putting a deposit on one and when they think we should be able to get it. Does anyone know when it is supposed to hit the ground here in the US?

The dealership in my neighborhood already has every one of them available.... I am so tempted. They have everything from the 848 to the 1098R available. I might make my move as well. I am in new york so they should be in your area as well.
