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.
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
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.
