If there’s one thing Ducati is good at, it’s putting a big price tag on a pretty engine – and they’ve started work on a new SP model.
According to a report from MCN, a set of American Emissions Documents has given away the fact that Ducati is in the works of making an SP version of their popular Streetfighter V4 S.
While this may not come as a complete surprise, the exact details on what is getting updated have yet to be released.
Despite this, we can still compare the information we have been given against the other SP Ducati models to guesstimate updates that will be installed under the proverbial hood.
We’ve been told the power and range of the hyper naked will be the same, which means the shiny bits of new technology that inevitably follow every Ducati release will be the buggers contributing to the steep price tag.
Suppose the updates are anything like the Panigale V4 SP model that Ducati released.
In that case, we’ll be getting a very lovely set of Stylema R calipers, an MCS master cylinder, carbon fiber wheels, and probably something like a dry clutch conversion to keep the traditional Ducati rumble and roar.
There’s also a couple of zero’s to chew on if we’re comparing the Panigale V4 S to the price tag of the V4 SP model. The Panigale V4 SP costs £32,295 in the UK – that’s a stiff £7000 more than the original V4 S model.
Expect the Streetfighter V4 SP to have a similar rise in price and for the release of the bike to hit later this year, given the EICMA tradeshow (the probable location of the new Streetfighter V4 SP reveal) has purportedly been delayed until November due to ongoing restrictions.
