Motorcycles are a thing of passion, beauty and freedom. None expresses this quite like the Ducati 848. Now I know you may be wondering why I didn’t just go big and pick the 1098 or 1198- mainly because I value my life. I speak from experience here having test ridden the Ducati 1098 around downtown Seattle (and the nearby freeways). Here is my conclusion: Ducati 848: It can kill you just as easily as the 1098 Great for real-world riding and maintenance Same sexy looks Available in white Ducati 1098/1198: Can kill you faster then the 848 Difficult to control at low speeds …like your girlfriend Will easily buck you and/or rip your head off …also like your girlfriend Has
