The 2008 Ducati 848 is the replacement middleweight sports bike for Ducati, taking over from the Ducati 749. The 848 is 20 kgs (44 lbs) lighter than its predecessor, while its engine develops around 35 horsepower more.

The 848 cc, L-twin engine uses an improved method of production in which the engine cases are vacuum die-cast formed. While providing significant weight savings of more than 3 kg (6.5 lbs), this method also ensures consistent wall thickness and increased strength. Further refinements include a sophisticated wet clutch that offers 1 kg (2.2 lbs) less weight, a much higher service life, improved clutch feel and quiet operation.

The styling of the Ducati 848 is based on that of the larger displacement Ducati 1098, and visually both bikes are a significant improvement over their controversially styled predecessors.
