The 1198 also has updated standard equipment like Traction Control, Ducati Data Analyser and Quick Shifter. Also joining the improved and impressive Superbike range is the 848 EVO, which now boasts 140hp and is equipped with Brembo Monobloc calipers and steering damper.

The 848 Evo, which will also be on display in race livery to promote the 2011 848 Challenge, will show a new additional paint scheme in stunning arctic white livery with contrasting red wheels and red frame.

This one-make Championship is a support series for The British Superbike Championship, visiting five BSB circuits, two overseas rounds at Monza and Assen and one New Era round at Castle Combe.

The Championship has already garnered huge interest with 22 riders confirmed with three months still to go before the first flag drops at Brands Hatch on April 25, 2011. The Monster family welcomes the new 1100 Evo along with color schemes and ergonomic updates to current members of the Ducati naked icon.
