A long, bizarre name with a single point. The MV Agusta F3 may have premiered traction control on a supersport motorcycle a couple days ago, but, due to Ducati's larger volumes, this Ducati 848 Evo Corse SE is probably going to be the middleweight remembered for breaking the barrier. Like any of the lastest superbikes, 848 riders will now be able to get on the throttle earlier, harder and safer, giving this bike a real world performance advantage.

In addition to 8-mode TC, Evo Corse SE trim gives the 848 a red/white/black paint job, a quick shifter and 330mm brake discs clamped by Brembo Monoblocks. Expect a small premium over the $13,995 848 Evo.
