Ducati 848 – SW Terwilliger Blvd & SW Nebraska St, Portland

May 20th, 2010 by Emir

I figured this is the closet I’ll ever get to a Ferrari. Picked her up yesterday. She’s really wicked – loud, fast, mean, and oh so sexy. Hot too…quite literally – she generates so much heat that one’s ass gets very sweaty above those carbon exhausts. And that sound…wow. 848 will always be in the shadows of its bigger brethren 1098/1198 but still a proper sport bike to be certain. In fact she’s quite handful. All bikes need to be designed like Ducatis (i.e. they need to look good in one color… period).

  • Congratulations!! You need to go drop somebody else’s bike so you don’t have to drop this one.

  • ha ha totally – dont drop it!

    congrats on the new toy Emir – I am dying for one myself – although my choice would be a monster 696 in one of those cool historical liveries.

    enjoy it!!!

  • Thanks gents. As I’ve said she’s a handful. She’s soooo fast it stings:)
    Yeah, I’ve got to watch for accidents. As far as the new Monsters go with the vintage liveries, I love those. In general I think that the new Monsters don’t look that great compared to the older models. I think that the later Monster design misses some of that raw, bad-boy attitude that the original models had and somehow I never got to like them much. yet the latest edition is really cool. Now they need to reintroduce the “chrome” model and what’s up with the killing of the Classics line… those were really cool bikes (way overpriced though).
