Live Your Dark Knight Fantasy With The Ducati Streetfighter V4 S’ New Dark Livery

A Motorcycle So Clean You Could Consider It ‘Filthy’

Fully black liveries are nothing new in the motorcycle world. Many riders love to pair their fully blacked-out bikes with a black racing outfit for the maximum ‘road intimidation factor’.

If you’re in the market for a Ducati Streetfighter V4 S and aren’t too keen on spending thousands of dollars blacking out the entire motorcycle yourself, Ducati is breaking free from their addiction to all things red and providing a full black livery option for the 2021 Streetfighter.

When I say “blacked out” I really mean it. Almost every piece possible on this motorcycle has joined the black team. You can still find a handful of parts adorned in silver; the exhaust, radiator, pegs, and steering stabilizer – but beyond that, every piece of the motorcycle has been shrouded in evil greatness.

Personally, I want my Ducati in the traditional red colour so anyone who sees me riding it will know I re-mortgaged my house to ride the Ferrari of the superbike world. But if you’re a modest adult – unlike myself – this is an absolutely beautiful colour option for the motorcycle.

This colour option will only be available on the S version of the Streetfighter V4, and comes with an additional $391 USD fee when buying the bike new.

The 2021 edition of the Streetfighter V4 includes some new engine upgrades to make it Euro5 compliant (sigh), but Ducati wants customers to be reassured that it still produces a neck-snapping 208 horsepower from its 1,103cc V4 engine. 

The motorcycle will get into the hands of dealers in November of this year, so let’s hope it comes winterized so you can enjoy your maiden-voyage ride come spring next year.
