Was wondering what you guys think the 848.. will be like? Pretty much exact replica of the 1098 with a little cube loss and power? Or you think it will be a bored/stroked 748cc motor?
If when tested at less than 1 billion feet altitude the 1098 delivers the kind of performance Ducati are indicating, (i.e faster in all situ's than a GSX'r 1000) do we anticipate the 848 to make the same advances over the 749 series?
What is the general opinion possibly even lighter than the 1098 ? power in the region of? (im guessing around 125 - 130) stomping mid range to put it on par with a GSX'r 750 in most ranges?
Im in love with the 1098 and so desperately want one, but not in a position to purchase one yet, however by the time i am the 848 may well be out and could be a worthy (slightly cheaper and more than adequate alternative?)
