    Interesting. What is the MSRP for the 848?

    scheduled maintenance for 2008 models are also going to cost 50% less than previous models.

    I read the 08 848 will be around $12-13K and the 08 1098 is going up another grand to $16K.

    Although its a duc, for that price I would rather have a helicon if I was dead set on a non-traditional twin sportbike.

    For that price I'd rather get a Repsol 1000RR and set myself up with two seasons worth of trackdays and tires- but it doesn't make that 848 less sexy.

    A mate took one for a spin a couple of weeks ago, said it shits all over his 748s in pretty much every area, except looks.

    yeah, except it's nowhere near a middleweight. a 750 twin is a middleweight, a 763 cc or whatever is a "cheater", an 850 ain't even close. that's why it's faster than the 600s, not because of any technological advantage

    still makes my panties wet.

    LOL, if you only knew.... But yeah, I am liking the 848 pretty well. I'll wait until I see one in person before I cast a verdict.
