With its launch this morning in Italy, the wait is over for the Ducati Streetfighter 848.
Moto-journos are spending the day flogging Bologna’s new machine around city streets and the Autodromo Modena track, and we’ve finally got the word on pricing; Cycle Canada says Ducati’s hot new bike will sell for $13,995. It should arrive in February, 2012, and will be available in red, yellow, and black.
Honda has also just released details on a 2012 machine.
Visordown is reporting the 2012 CBR600RR is staying basically unchanged another year, except for some paint scheme variations. That means Honda’s repli-racer is the almost the exact same bike they’ve been putting out since 2006 – the only major change since then was the ABS option introduced three years ago.
