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).
