I think the 848 is just the ticket. Not too big not too small. If priced like it's big brother it should compete well against the GSXR750 and although more expensive than the current crop of middle weights may just be the ticket

Can't wait until the reviews and comparisons are under way...

WET CLUTCH IN THE HOUSE!

I'm sure there's some purists out there who are shaking there heads right now. I guess it saves some weight, and is more durable.
I read somewhere the 848 has a better power/weight ratio than the Ducati 999. Madness...

Wet clutch, dry clutch..whatever...that bike is incredible. Thank God the evil rien of Pierre Terrblanche is over and Ducati is making truly Italian designed bikes again.
