how come they dont make a duc 848S???

Well the title says it all........ why dont they make an 848S or 848R ????

i know ducati used to do it to the other "lower end" models in the past... like the 749S..... so why cant they do it now?

just a simple ... feel free to chime in with what you think

I feel it would be a pricing issue, a 848S would probably cost more than a base 1198, don't think I would pass up a standard 1198 for a 848S with a few trick parts that probably realisticly does not perform much better than the standard 848. I have noticed that alot with the reviews of Ducati, the S model has some nicer goodies, carbon, Ohlins, forged wheels, but honestly it does not outperform the non S version by much.
