Why We Picked It:
The 2023 Ducati Streetfighter V4 models are unapologetic about what they are. Based on the supersport Panigale V4 models, they are stripped down, lightened, and powerful sledgehammers designed to rule the streets. The look of the front end was influenced by The Joker from DC Comics, with a grinning LED daytime running light over the pair of full headlights. The biplane wings on the sides of the radiator cover are there to provide stability at high speed but also add to the shoulders of the bike, giving it a fighting stance that promises to smack other bikes around the head with its growling exhaust and powerful looks. Ducati themselves call this the "Ego Booster" design concept, without any comedic irony at all. They mean it, and the motorcycle shows it.
The V4S is an even more stripped-down and unapologetic pugilist. Weighing 5 lbs less than the V4, it also comes with electronically adjustable suspension to handle any fight it needs to. But wait there is more! Ducati could never stop when there is more insanity available, welcomed the V4SP to the lineup in 2022.
Marked with the legendary “SP” (which stands for Sport Production), and kitted out with “Winter Test” livery. The new carbon rims, 3 lb lighter than those of the Streetfighter V4 S, significantly reduce the moment of inertia and contribute to an overall weight saving of 6.6 lb. The comprehensive range of equipment is completed with Ohlins Smart EC 2.0 suspension and the Brembo Stylema R® braking system with front calipers.
For 2023, a collaboration with Lamborghini has resulted in a special limited edition model. Using the SP2 as its base, it is further lightened via the use of exotic materials and carbon composise. The foot pegs, clutch lever, and brake lever are all billet aluminum. Akrapovic has sculpted a bespoke titanium exhaust for the V4 Lamborghini as well, giving it an unmistakable roar similar to when a Huracan STO revs its V10 engine. It is limited to 630 + 63 units, and costs a whopping $68,000
