Ducati Australia has confirmed pricing and arrival for the Streetfighter V2 and V4 SP model.
The exciting 208hp Streetfighter V4 naked bike arrived last year at $A29,500 ride away for the Streetfighter and $33,900 for the Streetfighter S.
That compares with $31,650 and $40,490 for the Panigale V4 and V4S on which it is based.
Now they have released a cheaper 178kg, 153hp V2 version arriving in Australia and New Zealand from February 2022 at $A22,500 ($NZ23,495).
It is powered by the Panigale V2’s 955cc Euro 5-compliant Superquadro engine with 153hp of power at 10,750rpm and 101.4Nm of torque at 9,000rpm.
Compared with the Panigale V2, the Streetfighter V2 has a shorter final ratio (15/45 vs 15/43) for more torque at the rear wheel and more responsiveness when re-opening the throttle.
The engine is part of the monocoque die-cast aluminium frame and connected to the single-sided swingarm which is 16 mm longer than on the Panigale V2.
It comes with 43mm Showa BPF forks and the Sachs rear shock, 5-spoke wheels and the new Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV tyres (120/70 ZR17; 180/60 ZR17).
It also features the Panigale V2’s Brembo M4-32 monobloc radial calipers with 320mm diameter discs and the Panigale’s electronics.
The Streetfighter V2 has LED headlights and a 4.3” full-TFT dashboard.
Streetfighter V4 SP
The 3kg lighter and more exclusive Streetfighter V4 SP will arrive in May 2022 at $A48,400 ($NZ50,595).
It is powered by the 1103 cc Desmosedici Stradale with 208hp and 123Nm with an STM-EVO SBK dry clutch.
While it is no more powerful than the V4 S, the SP is 3kg lighter than the Streetfighter V4 S at 196kg.
The top-of-the-range “SP” (Sport Production) model has a “Winter Test” livery and equipment from the Superleggera V4.
It sits on 5 split-spoke carbon rims which are 1.4kg lighter than the forged aluminium rims on the Streetfighter V4 S, reducing inertia by 26% at the front and 46% at the rear.
Together with Brembo Stylema R front brake calipers it should be more nimble and quicker to stop.
It features Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 suspension that can vary the damping according to the rider’s riding style.
Other features include adjustable aluminium and CNC-machined footpegs, carbon front guard and light lithium-ion battery.
There are also track days accessories, such as an open carbon clutch cover and caps for removing the number plate holder.
