Ducati's 848 Streetfighter overpowers Triumph Street Triple R

Trevor Franklin, 17 November 2011 13:06

Ducati say their Streetfighter 848 is suitable for riders who want Ducati’s legendary sports bike performance without the head down, arse up seating stance of a race replica. And our world first group test proves they are right. The Streetfighter 848 is Ducati’s usable naked Streetfighter (unlike its bigger brother), complete with traction control, data log facility and modern day ...

Staff bikes: Ducati Diavel - No pain, no gain

Ian Jubb, 13 October 2011 16:18

As with all my motorcycle adventures, it started with poor timing and a torrential downpour. The panic to make the 8.15pm Brittany Ferries sailing from Portsmouth to St Malo meant I had to average more than 60mph over the 195-mile journey, which meant some swift progress on damp roads. This was the first truly wet journey on the bike which ...

Staff bikes: Ducati Monster 1100 Evo - Monster's hot in the city

Marc Abbott, 05 October 2011 17:14

The first Thursday of each month is Italian night at London's Ace Cafe, so before the 160-mile round trip becomes a teeth-grittingly sub-zero affair, I made the effort to head down after work a few weeks back. The promise of clear skies and good company kept spirits high on the 5.30pm slog down the A1, thankfully against the tide of London's ...

Ducati 848 Challenge blog: Silverstone

Adam Child, 28 September 2011 12:30

I couldn’t turn down racing in the 848 Challenge at Silverstone in front of packed BSB crowd but it was a baptism of fire, thrown in at the deep end learning a new track and new bike, but great fun. First practice didn’t really go to plan, I wasn’t clicking with the 848 and was still learning the huge 3.6 ...

Video: Ducati Diavel longterm report

Ian Jubb, 16 September 2011 14:09

This year has flown by and with it 3000 miles have been covered on my Ducati Diavel long termer. Being a true Brit at heart I'd love to moan about it, pick holes and say grumpy things but I really can't, I haven't got a bad word to say, nothing that niggles enough to lay into anyway. Truth is, the Diavel has ...

Exotic European superbikes for £6000: 999S v RSV1000R v F4

MCN, 15 September 2011 16:04

Time flies so fast, it's easy to forget these mouthwatering European superbikes are getting on a bit. In your mind's eye it's still easy to think of 'exotica' like the Aprilia RSV1000R, Ducati 999S and MV Agusta F4 750S as dream bikes, completely out of reach of most of us - just like the RSV4R, 1198SP and F4RR are now. ...

Staff bikes: Ducati Diavel - Well worth the money

Ian Jubb, 07 September 2011 12:08

The Diavel is a strange machine to say the least. It goes very fast, stops just as quickly and is already pumping out huge figures (162bhp). This all left me wondering how to improve upon its already epic performance. I’ll be honest with you – I’ve little technical knowledge of what suspension really does in practice, how it does it ...

Staff bikes: Ducati Monster 1100 Evo - The modern cafe racer

Marc Abbott, 25 August 2011 16:44

Over the months that I've owned the Monster, many have asked me "What's it like?" My default answer is "A real, good, honest motorcycle". Which sounds like damning it with faint praise; that's far from my intention. What I mean to say is that this stripped back, stylish, air-cooled Italian V-twin, punting out a modest 100bhp at the crank, is - for ...

Staff bikes: Ducati Diavel - A do-anything bike with mega attitude

Ian Jubb, 29 July 2011 12:05

The weather gods have been smiling upon us, which has meant that the Diavel has hardly stopped running over the last two months, whether it be commuting or a full-on 200-mile round trip to find some good corners and meet up with fellow Ducati riders and admirers. It's been a dream come true. I've a bold statement to make: I'm ...

Foggy and Whit ride again!

Adam Child, 27 July 2011 09:44

On the eve of the World Superbikes at Silverstone and with the mouthwatering, all-new Ducati 1199 in prospect, we reckoned there was no better time to look back at the benchmark bikes that gave the Bologna factory such huge success over the years on both road and track. And who better to re-appraise the family tree of Duke superbikes than ...
