Check out Ducati's 848 Streetfighter

Ducati's new 848 Streetfighter should give other urban brawlers some stiff competition.

Finally, you can get a good look at Ducati’s 848 Streetfighter.

And, a good look is pretty much all you’re going to get at this point.

We don’t have a price yet, (although it will certainly be cheaper than the current 1099 Streetfighter), and we don’t know the bike’s performance numbers either. But since the bike’s Testastretta 11 engine comes out of the 140hp 848 EVO superbike, we’re guessing it should feature pretty snappy performance, even if it’s detuned a bit.

It's not the sort of machine you'd want to tour on, or pick up the groceries... but all those wheelies and burnouts should keep you more than happy.

Ducati says the bike will feature their traction control system, so you’ll be able to put the bike’s horsepower to the pavement even more enthusiastically, as long as Johnny Law isn’t waiting and watching.

The bike goes on sale in Europe in November, and should be available in North America in January 2012.

Buyers can choose from yellow, red, or flat black paint.
