3 World class Italian superbikes

Ducati announced their new line of 2011 Superbikes at the INTERMOT International Motorcycle Fair yesterday, and all 3 bikes feature new trickle-down technology from Ducati’s World Championship racing team. From Ducati:

“All three Superbike offerings for 2011 are brand new or significantly upgraded from their 2010 variants: The 1198 SP is the new crown jewel of Ducati’s formidable Superbike family. It features a massive 170hp and 97 lb/ft of torque combined with a flyweight of 370lbs. Making the package work for the rider is a combination of electronic rider aids and performance oriented hard parts found on no other sport bike available. The electronics include a MotoGP derived digital dash, Ducati Traction Control (DTC), the new Ducati Quick Shifter (DQS) and a Ducati Data Analyzer (DDA) to review all measures of performance data. The top of the line suspension includes Ohlins front forks and an Ohlins TTx rear shock. These match up with a Ducati Performance Slipper Clutch, aluminum fuel tank and Brembo Monobloc calipers to ensure world class performance for only $21,995

The standard 2011 Ducati 1198 will also feature the same upgrades (DTC, DQS, DDA) at no extra cost, and will hit showrooms this December at $16,495. The featherweight 848EVO (only 369lbs) was announced in July, but was unveiled in a new Arctic White colorway at INTERMOT. Packing 140hps, the 848EVO is the best performing middleweight sport bike on the market with a pricetag of $12,995.
