In 2010 Ducati updated their 848 middleweight model with the 848 EVO. It's not just an extra three letter badge either as the EVO is 6hp up on the previous model, and it also gets some superior components.

To squeeze the extra power out of the engine Ducati's engineers made modifications to the cylinder heads with redesigned ports, they also fitted new cams with slightly adjusted timing and higher compression. Larger throttle bodies were also fitted. In total the changes account for a 6hp bump, taking the total to 140 hp @ 10,500 rpm, and a peak torque figure of 72.3lb-ft (98Nm).

Other upgrades given to the 2011 848 EVO include superior Brembo brakes, and for the first time the 848 is fitted with a steering damper.

Ducati have made the changes based on feedback from current 848 owners, so they should prove to enhance the bike for a wide spectrum of riders. Keeping every one from the trackday fiend to the cross-town commuter happy.

For the 2011 model Ducati are also offering a new paint scheme, the Dark Stealth. This option sees the bike's bodywork painted in a sinister matt black finish, the gloss black wheels nicely compliment the stealth finish. Also available is the more traditional red frame, red bodywork version of the 848 EVO.

In terms of reliability the Ducati 848 EVO has proved to be up there with the best from Japan. Long service intervals and great build quality.
