In their 2022 Ducati World Premiere 4th episode, the Bologna-based manufacturer unveiled two new additions to their Streetfighter lineup: the V2 and the V4 SP.
According to Ducati, “the Streetfighter V2 is a sport-naked with a one-of-a-kind character. It 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. The result is an intuitive and easy-to-handle vehicle, with the right dose of power to ensure feisty performance and maximum riding fun.”
It is powered by a 955cc Euro 5-compliant Superquadro, capable of delivering a maximum power of 155 Ps at 10,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 101.4 Nm at 9,000 rpm. This engine results not only usable and enjoyable on the road but also effective and excellent on the track, where can be easily managed. 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-opening the throttle.
Other features include an array of top-shelf electronic rider aids like the
6-axis IMU inertial platform, 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 Riding Modes with dedicated control settings. The electronic equipment can be enhanced by the accessories contained in the Ducati Performance catalog: Ducati Data Analyzer (DDA + GPS) and Ducati Multimedia System.
The bike is equipped with full-LED headlights with front DRL and a 4.3” full-TFT dashboard characterized by an intuitive interface that recalls the Streetfighter V4 family feeling.
Streetfighter V4 SP
For 2022, Ducati also introduces the top-of-the-range Streetfighter V4 SP model, offered in a numbered version and marked with the well-known “SP” (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 is thanks to 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.
The Streetfighter V4 SP is powered by a 1,103cc Desmosedici Stradale with 210 Ps of power and is capable of delivering torque values of up to 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.
The Philippine availability and pricing for both the Streetfighter V2 and V4 SP are yet to be announced by Ducati.
