The Ducati Streetfighter V4 will be powered by the same engine as in the Panigale V4 but in a slightly different state of tune. It will be no less mad though.
Ducati has dropped a teaser video of the upcoming Streetfighter V4 ahead of its global unveil on October 23. The teaser gives out some key specifications of the motorcycle while also teasing the face with a glimpse of the headlamps of this new motorcycle. This Streetfighter V4 is essentially a naked sibling of Panigale V4 and could very well be the maddest naked motorcycle from the Italian manufacturer.
So, what are the key specs? The Streetfighter V4 will be powered by the same 1103cc Desmosedici Stradale 90° V4 engine that powers the Panigale V4, but, in a slightly different state of tune. The Streetfighter V4 makes peak power of 208PS at a slightly lower rpm of 12,750. In comparison, the Panigale V4 makes peak power of 214PS at 13,000 rpm.
The Streetfighter V4 also features ‘Bigplane Wings’ for better aerodynamics and also the Ducati’s entire electronic suite from the Panigale V4. You would of course need the entire electronic suite to tame this mad motorcycle. The motorcycle is also expected to be equipped with a full-colour TFT screen, which should also pair with Ducati’s multimedia system. Oh, and do you not already love the wing shaped LED DRLs?
Just like the Panigale, the Streetfigher will also be available in two variants – there will be the standard variant which is expeceted to be equipped with a Showa USD BPF at the front and a fully adjustable Sachs monoshock at the rear. Then there will be an S variant which will come with top-spec Ohlins suspension which is electronically adjustable and semi-active. Braking duties on the both the variants will be taken care by top-spec Brembo Stylema Callibers.
The Ducati Streetfighter V4 is expected to make it to Indian shores sometime next year. Ducati will be offering both the variants here in India. Expect the standard variant to be priced around Rs. 22 lakhs while the S variant could be priced around Rs. 24 lakhs (all prices ex-showroom). Ducati will be officially unveiling the Streetfighter V4 on October 23 at the Ducati World Première 2020. The Streetfighter V4 will rival other hypernakeds such as the MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Serie Oro and the supercharged Kawasaki ZH2,
