But naked machines, on the other hand come across as subdued versions of their race-winning counterparts, tamed for the road and a lot more comfortable notably for their upright riding position and comfortable ergonomics. Naked machines make for a fun riding experience and keep at it without expecting 100 per cent from the rider or demanding to be ridden at full clip all the time – motorcycling at its easiest and most basic form if I can say that. And the Ducati Streetfighter 848 is a one such versatile brute that further builds on the fun factor allowing neophytes as well as the gurus of biking to go out and simply have a blast on winding roads without having to worry about lap times or sponsors.



I did just that, also getting lapped by Bayliss, Capirossi and some others on the Panigales but it didn’t bother me in the least bit! The torque was heady and swooping into the turns truly as god intended! I had found peace and pleasure, from a hooligan bike no less! Who says Streetfighter is a bad word? Not me!
