Italian automaker Ducati is expected to unveil its Streetfighter V2 motorcycle at the 2021 EICMA Show and launch it in early 2022. Now, a test mule of the bike has been spotted testing in Italy, highlighting key details about its design.

The Ducati Streetfighter V2 will have a muscular fuel tank, a stepped-up seat with a pillion grab rail, a high-mounted exhaust, a raised windscreen, and dual-tone black and red paintwork. The bike should pack a digital instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity and an all-LED setup for lighting. It will ride on designer blacked-out alloy wheels.
The Ducati Streetfighter V2 will draw power from a 955cc, twin-cylinder, fuel-injected engine that should generate a maximum power of around 157hp. The mill is likely to be linked to a 6-speed gearbox.
To ensure the safety of the rider, the Ducati Streetfighter V2 will be equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels. ABS for better handling should also be offered. Suspension duties on the motorcycle should be taken care of by inverted telescopic forks on the front side and a shock absorber on the rear end.
