Ducati Streetfighter V2 Front
It looks just as mad as the Streetfighter V4

The Ducati Streetfighter V2 has a 955cc V-twin motor pushing a maximum of 153 HP

Meet the new Ducati Streetfighter V2, a less extreme version of the bonkers Streetfighter V4, which is based on the Panigale V2.

Looking very much like its big brother, the Streetfighter V2 has a wide handlebar, split seat, a muscular fuel tank, a 4.3-inch TFT display and full-LED lighting units.

Sporting an aluminium ‘front frame’ and an aluminium single-sided swingarm, the Ducati Streetfighter V2 has been created purposefully for road use.

The motorcycle is also fitted with a Sachs steering damper and has auto-off blinkers

For example, the bike has a longer swingarm (by 16 mm) in comparison with the Panigale V2. It also has a weight distribution split of 52 percent at the front and 48 percent at the rear.

Power comes from a 955cc Superquadro twin (90 degree V2) that is tuned to produce 153 HP at 10,750 RPM and 101.4 Nm of torque at 9000 RPM. The motor is teamed to a 6-speed gearbox with a bi-directional quickshifter, and slipper clutch.

The Ducati Streetfighter V2 has tonnes of electronics including ride by wire, 3 ride modes (Wet, Road and Sport), power modes, 6-axis IMU, cornering ABS, traction control, wheelie control and engine brake control

Side Profile
The seat is 845 mm high, and is longer and wider than that of the Panigale V2

Equipped with 43 mm Showa BPF front fork (120 mm wheel travel) and a Sachs rear shock absorber with 130 mm travel (both fully adjustable), and a Sachs steering damper, the naked machine rides on 5-spoke, 17-inch alloy wheels.

The wheels are shod with Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV tyres (120/70-section up front and 180/60-section at the rear), while the Brembo braking system comprises twin 320 mm front discs with M4.32 monobloc radial calipers and a single 245 mm disc with a caliper that has 2 opposing pistons, at the rear.

Moreover, the motorcycle which is capable of holding 17 litres of petrol and which weighs 200 kg (wet), has a 12 months or 12,000 km service interval. It costs $16,995 (Rs. 12.66 lakhs) in the USA and should come to India soon.
