The new Ducati 848 EVO will be presented at the Laguna Seca MotoGP this weekend.
After speculation over whether it would be a preview of the Mega Monster (more likely to be revealed at the 2010 EICMA), a more road-oriented Multistrada 1200 or another beast for the track, it seems the latter has won.
The Evo tag indicates a track bike which should have 140hp, new fuel injection and electronics systems, monobloc Brembo callipers and new steering dampers while using the Testastretta Evoluzione engine.
It apparently weighs in at 168 kg.
We still have no idea who the four secret guests will be at the Laguna Seca presentation but we should think a few of Ducati’s famous names in racing and maybe a couple of celebrities might turn up.
We’re more interested in the bike, to be honest.
