The newStreetfighter V2is asports naked with a one-of-a-kind character. It accommodates the needs of those riders who are looking for a bike capable of combining the sporting Panigale V2’s DNA with both the attitude and style of the admired Streetfighter. The result is an intuitive and easy-to-handle vehicle, with the right dose of power to ensure feisty performance and maximum riding fun.
It is noteworthy that this project is the reinterpretation of Ducati’s successful “Fight Formula”, this time applied to the Panigale V2, stripped of the fairings and equipped with high and wide handlebars. The dry weight of this vehicle is 392 lb and the engine is the 955 cc and 153 hp Superquadro controlled by the latest-generation electronic package.
DESIGN The new Streetfighter V2 is essential and characterized by a truly sharp design, which embraces the classic stylistic elements of the Streetfighter V4, like the V-shaped DLR typical of Ducati sports bikes and inspired by the famous grin of the Joker.
VEHICLE AND ERGONOMICS The right mix of sportiness and comfort: saddle now is longer, wider and has new padding that contributes to make this bike even more comfortable in sporty riding and facilitate everyday use at the same time.
ELECTRONICS The comprehensive and modern electronic compartment fitting the Streetfighter V2 is inherited from the Panigale V2. The 6-axis IMU inertial platform manages all the electronic controls of the bike and gives the position of the bike in space in real time.
Conceived not to tire
The Streetfighter V2 adopts the extremely sporty base of the Panigale V2. But the addition of ahigh and wide handlebarmakes it a lotmore comfortableduring everyday use. Firstly, the wider grip is helpful when maneuvring at low speeds or when navigating in traffic. A higher handlebar also means that the torso is less tilted, a position that is less tiring for the back, especially during mid- to long-range trips, and that significantly reduces stress on the wrists.
The suspension on the Streetfighter V2 is designed to offer all the support you need for busy cornering, but it can also adapt to everyday use.
