Ducati Streetfighter V4 Preview
The Ducati Streetfighter V4 is the naked version of the company’s fully-faired Panigale V4. As a result, it’s based on the very same underpinnings as the Panigale V4, albeit it ditches the slippery bodywork in favour of naked aggression. Like the Panigale, the Streefighter will be available in V4 and V4 S trims. Both the versions are powered by the same 1,103cc V4 motor. The engine, in this application, develops 205bhp and 123Nm of torque, which 6bhp & 1Nm less than the fully-faired version. There’s an optional Akrapovi? Performance exhaust system that bumps up the power to 217bhp and torque to 130Nm, while also cutting down the weight by 6kg!
The Streetfighter V4 and V4 S come equipped with Panigale V4's six-axis IMU-integrated electronics suite. The V4 S being the higher trim gets electronically-controlled Ohlins suspension, steering damper & forged aluminium Marchesini wheels. The standard V4 gets Showa BPF front forks, and Sachs rear mono-shock & steering damper.
The Streetfighter is expected to be priced at Rs 18 lakh for the V4 version and Rs 22 lakh for the V4 S version (both ex-showroom).
