Weight and batteries.

I am not a great believer in saving minuscule amounts of weight on a bike as in my opinion it does nothing. As an aviator I know that weight is proportional to acceleration and aerodynamics is proportional to top speed. 539 more words

Mark 1 headlight fitted!

Okay there are three basic reasons for changing the headlight. Light output, power used and looks.

The looks is easy because the 848 headlight is a great design on a great looking bike, the only thing that could look better would be to see two lights switched on while it is running rather than one, that has been sorted in the mark 1 headlight. 349 more words

The Ducati SBK from about 2007 to 2012 all have an LED rear light fitted as standard. The lights are always on on European models. When the front or rear brake is applied the LEDs become brighter. 379 more words

Ducati SBK luggage

The 848 may be a sports bike but I find the riding position reasonably comfortable. I used to own a BMW R1150RT back in 2003 which was supposed to be a tourer, but the riding position was far too upright and gave me lower back pain from slouching, I changed that bike in 2004 for a BMW K1200GT which was more sporting and more comfortable. 404 more words
