Superbike, 2012 will undoubtably be the final year of the 848 Superbike. To commemorate this, Ducati is offering an up-spec traction control-equipped version dubbed the 848 EVO Corse SE.
In addition to its special red/white/black Corse livery, the Corse SE gets a pair of larger diameter front brake discs (up 10mm from 320). More upgrades come in the form of an Ohlins gas-charged shock absorber. Front suspension continues to be sourced from Showa.
A push button eight-way adjustable traction control system has also been fitted along with an electronic quick-shifter. No word on pricing or U.S. availability, but MSRP should be right around $15 grand based on the price of the ’11 version (Dark Stealth color way $12,995.).
