Let’s face it: Fuel efficiency is inversely proportional to how cool a car looks.
That’s why the truly stylish and eco-conscious ditch a couple wheels and spring for a motorcycle instead, like Ducati’s sweet new Superbike 848.
The 848 is built on the same platform as Ducati’s mind-blowing 1098, but with a less racetrack-worthy motor, which would only improve the odds of killing yourself on your daily commute, anyway.
Not that the 848 is any less insane of a ride: with 134 horsepower, the 369 pound bike will smoke almost any car out there and sports a better power-to-weight ratio than Ducati’s legendary (and now retired) 999.
It’s also got some sweet Italian styling cues, including a single-sided rear swing-arm to show off its gorgeous wheel, high-mount exhaust, and tastefully executed projection headlamps.
Alas, the 848 also carries that requisite premium anything Italian and exotic does: a $13, 495 price tag.
