Ducati today announced the launch of the much awaited Streetfighter V4 and V4 S (detailed look), which is also the first all new BS6 Ducati to be launched in India. Based on the ‘Fight Formula’, the Streetfighter gets an aggressive and emotional design with the naked bike design exposing its powerful V4 engine. Priced at INR 19.99 Lacs, the Streetfighter V4 is available in the Ducati Red color. Streetfighter V4 S is priced at INR 22.99 Lacs for Ducati Red and INR 23.19 Lacs for Dark Stealth color. Bookings are now open across all Ducati dealerships in Delhi – NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Kochi, Kolkata & Chennai and deliveries will begin as soon as lockdown restrictions are lifted.
Keeping in line with the mean design, the front of the Streetfighter evokes the grin of the Joker, highlighting that two distinct side of the motorcycle; an exciting Super Naked for the road and also a thrilling companion on the racetrack. The distinct Ducati family design is also evident in V-shaped DRL, already featured on the Panigale V4 and SuperSport. Harking to its streetfighter culture, the naked bikes’ clip-on handlebars have been replaced with a high, wide bar that, together with a moderated foot peg position, makes the riding position sporty yet agile, perfect for ripping up the road. No doubt then, that the Ducati Streetfighter V4 was elected as the ‘Most Beautiful Bike’ at EICMA 2019.
Mr. Bipul Chandra, Managing Director of Ducati India said, “The Streetfighter V4 embodies the spirit of a mean beastly super naked, that is loaded with performance to back it up. The Streetfighter’s naked bike design does a fantastic job of putting that nature of the bike right at the center. An unrivalled super naked bristling with cutting-edge technology and an awe-inspiring design that oozes pure, accessible performance, whether it’s on the road or on the racetrack. The motorcycle was much awaited by enthusiasts and Ducatisti alike and we are excited that it is finally available in India for everyone to experience.”
The Streetfighter weighs in at just 180 kgs (Dry) and boasts of a Euro 5 compliant 1103 cc Desmosedici Stradale engine. In this configuration, the 90° V4 delivers 208 Hp at 12,750 rpm, an unrivalled power level within the naked segment, perfectly in keeping with the all-out character of the new Streetfighter V4. Maximum torque is 123 Nm at 9,500 rpm, practically unchanged with respect to the Panigale V4. This feisty Streetfighter V4 performance is kept under control by sophisticated electronics lifted directly from the Panigale V4 and the ‘biplane’ wings developed by Ducati Corse aerodynamicists. Brought forward to maximize their effect, the wings generate 28 kg of downforce at 270 kph, attenuating the front wheel ‘floating’ at high speed and the tendency to wheel-up. They also boost stability during braking at the turn-in point and through the corner. On the road, this dynamic behavior instils confidence. On the track, instead, it boosts performance by limiting electronic control intervention and allowing delayed braking.
