Motorcycle News Senior road tester Michael Neeves has just finished his first session riding Ducati’s new 848 at the Almeria circuit in Spain. As expected, the Ducati 848 has an incredible appetite for corners. Which is just as well, because Almeria is littered with hundreds of them.

"The 848 is the 'Kiing of Lean'. It loves corners and has the power of a Supersport 600 machine but it’s nowhere near as aggressive. On the track it doesn’t give a big impression of speed, although it would probably lap as fast as a Honda CBR600 or Yamaha R6"

 

We'll have a video of the test online shortly, and you can read the full report in Motorcycle News on Wednesday, December 5, 2007.
