2023 Ducati Streetfighter V4 and V4 SP2 unveiled: Check features
Ducati has unveiled the MY2023 iterations of the Streetfighter V4 and the track-focused Streetfighter V4 SP2 as a part of its 2023 Ducati World Premier. The motorcycles are essentially stripped-down versions of the flagship Panigale V4 model and feature a head-turning look along with multiple electronic riding aids. Both variants are powered by a 1,103cc, liquid-cooled, Desmosedici Stradale engine that makes 208hp.
Why does this story matter?
- The Streetfighter model was created by Damien Basset of the Ducati design team in 2009 as a slightly less-focused version of the iconic Desmosedici RR model.
- It was praised by critics and was an instant hit among buyers looking to upgrade from the Monster range of motorcycles.
- The 2023 iteration follows the brand's modern design philosophy and features various aerodynamic elements for better performance.
The superbikes flaunt carbon fiber winglets and forged alloy wheels
The 2023 Ducati Streetfighter V4 and V4 SP2 retain the aggressive design language of the current model. Both the bikes flaunt a muscular 17-liter fuel tank, an angular LED headlight, carbon fiber winglets, a rider-only saddle, a wide handlebar, an underbelly exhaust, golden-colored front forks, and a sleek LED taillight. They pack a 5.0-inch TFT instrument cluster and ride on 17-inch forged alloy wheels.
They draw power from a 208hp, 1,103cc V4 engine
The 2023 Streetfighter V4 and V4 SP2 are powered by the same 1,103cc, liquid-cooled, Desmosedici Stradale, V4 engine that churns out a maximum power of 208hp and a peak torque of 123Nm. Both bikes feature a 6-speed gearbox with a quick-shifter.
They are equipped with cornering ABS and traction control
For rider safety, both the 2023 Streetfighter V4 and V4 SP2 come equipped with disc brakes on both wheels, along with cornering ABS, traction control, engine brake control, wheelie control, ride-by-wire throttle, and multiple riding modes. Suspension duties are taken care of by 43mm fully-adjustable inverted forks on the front and an adjustable mono-shock unit attached to a single-sided swingarm on the rear end.
