All you need to know about Ducati’s new Streetfighter V4

Let’s cut the crap: this is a Panigale V4 without the fairings, wide handlebars and even more wings than a Panigale V4 R. The most bonkers naked bike ever? Very likely.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • It uses the 1103cc V4 engine.
  • It makes 208bhp at 12,750rpm
  • Max torque is 123nm @ 11,500rpm
  • It’ll make 220bhp with the Akrapovic exhaust fitted
  • It uses essentially the same frame as the Panigale V4, except shortened a bit for compactness and a better stiffness
  • It’s so damn fast it needs the wings. Shorter wheel base means more wheelies, which necessitates extra downforce
  • There’s an S version with electronic Ohlins suspension front and rear
  • Standard and S models share Brembo Stylema front brake calipers
  • We don’t have any official UK pricing yet, or availability dates
  • Gearing is shorter than the Panigale V4

And the electronics package is more or less what you’d find on a Panigale V4.
