Showroom manager Suksan Ankhuset said the 848 is the a popular Ducati model, as lower-end configurations start at around 400,000, but go up to 1 million baht.
Pro-Italian Motorsports has opened Pattaya’s first Ducati showroom on Third Road.
Nearly identical down to part numbers with the 1098/1198, the 115-horsepower, 849cc 848 uses the same bodywork and shares the same wheelbase, but has an engine displacement of 5 kg. less and a dry weight of just 168 kg. With a top speed of 256 km/h, the sport bike’s most notable difference from the more-powerful 1098, other than its engine, is that its four-caliper Brembo brakes are cast, rather than machined, and require greater braking effort.
Also showing was Ducati Monster’s current model, coming in at 87 horsepower and 803cc. It weighs in a 167 kg.
