The 848 in pearl white is just gorgeous, it has to be one of the sexiest bikes on the road. That said, the advent of the 1098 and 848 has absolutely bottomed out the market for all previous Duc Superbikes. I think I'm going to pick up a 998 later this year.
The only thing you need to do is get ambitious and convert it to a dry clutch. Between the dry clutch rattle and the throaty roar of Termi's you can make guys for miles mess their pants.
Hell my little 750SS's Termi's make the hardest of Harley guys do a double take. Sadly I think I'm gonna end up switching the cans out for some staintunes or Remus.
ahahah it is so freakin loud! I mean my honda made noise at 7000RPM but this thing is a beast! And I already got a ticket this afternoon... I'm sure he heard me coming. $170.... I haven't gotten a ticket in years so I'm kind of bummed about that.
But the shifting is sooooo smooth, I wouldn't give that up for anything!
Yeah, I love pulling up to lights behind a guy on a CBR/GSXR/ZXR etc and scaring the hell out of em buy lighting it up to the rev limiter. I had a little contest with a guy on a ZX12 the other day and drowned his bike out at like 7k. I've yet to get a ticket or even pulled over on my Duc. I only got 2 on other bikes, but I would get stopped a lot. Hell, I don't even have a tag yet
Ya gonna take it to the track?
Ok Squid, that is just creepy. A friend of mine that I work with has an all black CBR 600 and was looking at selling it for an all white Ducati 848 and I live pretty darn close to you... Wonder if you guys are looking at the same Ducati?
(i just bought my first bike - '07 silver /blue 600RR...... i don't think i'll be driving the nsx for awhile )
