Ducati 848 Evo: The Daily Express

I can’t take this torture anymore. I decide to take a break and let my body and the bike cool down. Parked on its side, I see what these people have been raving about. The 848 looks stunning from every angle. From the dual headlights to the underseat exhaust, it is such a work of art.

While I’m ogling the bike, I get a call from my girlfriend. She’s running late for work – on her first day at a new job. Fortunately, the office is in Noida, which means we’ll be using the highway. Finally! The Evo’s natural habitat. I reach home and find her pacing outside the gates. And she’s not too pleased to see I’ve come on a bike – she agrees reluctantly, seeing as she doesn’t have much of a choice.
