has expanded the Streetfighter family with the introduction of two new models:
the Streetfighter V2 and the top-of-the-range Streetfighter V4 SP. The
Streetfighter V2 will be available at Ducati dealerships starting from December
2021 in the Ducati Red colour with black rims while the V4SP will be in Ducati
dealerships starting at January 2022.
new Streetfighter V2 is a sports naked that accommodates the needs of those
riders who are looking for a bike capable of combining the sporting Panigale
V2’s DNA with both the attitude and style of the admired Streetfighter.
dry weight of this vehicle is 178 kg and the engine is the 955 cc and 153 hp
Superquadro controlled by the latest-generation electronic package. The new
Streetfighter V2 is essential and characterized by a truly sharp design, which
embraces the classic stylistic elements of the Streetfighter V4, starting with
the distinctive headlight, which recalls the V-shaped DRL typical of Ducati
sports bikes and is inspired by the famous grin of the Joker.
high and wide aluminum handlebars replace the handlebar risers of the Panigale
V2. The saddle now is wider and has new padding that contributes to make this
bike even more comfortable. In addition, the footpegs have been repositioned to
increase the amount of room. All these improvements allow the biker great
control in sporty riding and facilitate everyday use at the same time.
engine of the Streetfighter V2 is the 955 cc Euro 5-compliant Superquadro,
capable of delivering a maximum power of 153 hp at 10,750 rpm and a maximum
torque of 101.4 Nm at 9,000 rpm. Compared to the Panigale V2, the Streetfighter
V2 project has a shorter final ratio (15/45 vs 15/43) which guarantees greater
torque to the wheel at road speeds while giving better engine responsiveness
when re-openingthe throttle.
developing this new model, Ducati engineers focused their attention on the
chassis set-up. As a matter of fact, the Superquadro engine is used as a
bearing element connecting the compact front structure, consisting of a
monocoque frame in die-cast aluminum fixed to the engine head. The single-sided
swingarm, which is also connected to the engine, is 16 mm longer compared to
that of the Panigale V2, a winning point which contributes to ensure the
stability of the whole bike. To this platform are added the 43 mm Showa BPF
front fork and the Sachs shock absorber, featuring dedicated calibration to
make the bike more comfortable on the road as well as easily adjustable for a
whole new dimension of fun on the racetrack.
Streetfighter V2 is equipped with 5-spoke wheels and the new Pirelli Diablo
Rosso IV tyres: 120/70 ZR17 at the front and 180/60 ZR17 at the rear, which
provide a super fast response to the rider’s needs together with an extra
cornering feeling. Except for the adoption of brake pads characterised by a
less aggressive bite, more suitable for road use, the whole braking system is
faithfully taken from the Panigale V2 and features Brembo M4-32 monobloc radial
calipers with 320 mm diameter discs. Also the comprehensive and modern
electronic compartment fitting the Streetfighter V2 is inherited from the
Panigale V2. The 6-axis IMU inertial platform manages all the electronic
controls of the bike and gives the position of the bike in space in real time,
sending the information to the control units that manage the controls.
electronic package includes: ABS Cornering EVO with “slide by brake”
functionality, Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO 2, Ducati Wheelie Control
(DWC) EVO, Ducati Quick Shift up/down (DQS) EVO 2, Engine Brake Control (EBC)
EVO. The Streetfighter V2 features three different Riding Modes (Sport, Road,
Wet) with dedicated control settings. The electronic equipment can be enhanced
by the accessories contained in the Ducati Performance catalogue: Ducati Data
Analyzer (DDA + GPS) and Ducati Multimedia System.
bike is equipped with full-LED headlights with front DRL and a 4.3” full-TFT
dashboard characterised by an intuitive interface that recalls the
Streetfighter V4 family-feeling.
Ducati Performance catalogue features numerous accessories designed to enhance
look, performance and style of the new Streetfighter V2. Among these, the wings
stand out, designed by Ducati to obtain even higher performance in track use.
For 2022 Ducati introduces also top-of-the-range Streetfighter V4 SP model, offered
in a numbered version and marked with the well-known “SP” (which stands for
Sport Production) abbreviation. The new Streetfighter V4 SP is the most
adrenaline-pumping naked to ever roll its wheels off the production line in
Borgo Panigale. This thanks to a special technical equipment that perfectly
combines the “Fight Formula” with the “SP” specifications, further improving
the power-to-weight ratio of the Streetfighter V4 S, which was already at the
top of its category, and making the bike even more effective on the track.
V4 SP comes with a dedicated livery, premium equipment derived from
the Superleggera V4, as well as with a restrained weight: 196 kg in running
order (3 kg less compared to the Streetfighter V4 S). The essential and
captivating “Winter Test” livery has been conceived by the Ducati Centro Stile
taking inspiration from the Ducati Corse motorcycles ridden in MotoGP and SBK
Championships pre-season tests.
Matt Black of the fairings combined with the Matt Carbon finish of rims and
wings superbly contrasts with the bright Red accents and the sparkling brushed
aluminum tank. The new born from Borgo Panigale is also enriched with some
beautiful details, such as the progressive number printed on the handlebar and
the Italian flag colour scheme on the carbon wings. The Streetfighter V4 SP is
equipped with 5 split-spoke carbon rims, 1.4 kg lighter than the forged
aluminum ones fitted as standard on the Streetfighter V4 S and capable of
reducing the inertia by 26% at the front and 46% at the rear, making the bike
significantly more agile and lighter when changing direction.
exclusive Brembo Stylema front brake
calipers guarantee uncommon braking power, as well as stunning performance even
during extended use on track. The new bike is equipped with the Öhlins Smart EC
2.0 with the event-based system that can vary the damping according to the
rider's riding style, and together with biplane wings they increase confidence
and ensure the best performance in sporty use. The beating heart is the 1,103
cc Desmosedici Stradale with 208 hp capable of delivering a torque of 123 Nm at
9,500 rpm (Euro 5-compliant). On the Streetfighter V4 SP the Desmosedici
Stradale is fitted with the STM-EVO SBK dry clutch, which guarantees a better
anti-hopping function, even in the most aggressive downshifts, and greater
fluidity during all “off-throttle” stages, a crucial aspect to be truly
effective on the track when pushing to the limit.
equipment of this unique bike is enriched by the adjustable aluminum and CNC machined
footpegs, the carbon front mudguard, the lithium-ion battery and a range of
accessories suitable for the “track days”, such as the open carbon clutch cover
and the caps for removing the license plate holder. Thanks to its technical
equipment, the Streetfighter V4 SP is the ideal companion for the amateur who
wants to rule the track riding a naked bike and get an instant response.
Braking capacity results in fact out of the ordinary, the bike is easier to lay
into the corner and gets to the apex faster, not to mention the great stability
at high speeds. The Streetfighter V4 SP will be available in single-seat
configuration in the “Winter Test” livery. The bike will be in Ducati
dealerships starting at January 2022.
