If you take a grenade, unpin it and throw it in a powder keg, something is bound to happen … Add two wheels, handlebars, red, character and you get the Ducati Streetfighter V4 . Install high-end suspensions to obtain the S Label then let yourself be carried away by the breath.
The Bologna plant may well go further (too much?) Than the biker community imagined, it does not forget the ounce of prestige. Of that which befits so much to its models of all uses. Öhlins and Marchesini are the distinguished guests of this 1100 Streetfighter V4 S.
The damping assortment is here the duo of SMART EC 2.0 piloted suspensions from the Swedish supplier. As on the Panigale V4 S, the 43mm NIX 30 inverted fork and TTX 36 damper respond to the road and riding style..
In Dynamic mode, the electronic control unit retrieves data from the IMU and the motorcycle’s sensors to act on compression and rebound. It then operates according to the selected Riding Mode. The semi-active pack Öhlins hardens the equipment when Race Mode is activated, makes it sporty but less exclusive in Sport Mode and “softens” it in Street Mode, just to adapt to surfaces more random than the roads of the Tour de France.
Or, you switch to Manual mode and you stall the suspensions as you wish. There are 32 "virtual clicks" for the fork and 10 for the rear shock absorber. The steering damper is also under the control Öhlins.
This will allow even better use of the highly sporty chassis of the Panigale roadster. As long as you have the technical background that goes with it. Agility also wins points thanks to the Marchesini forged rims. The less weight reduces the gyroscopic effect and will result in more incisive angle changes. Thus equipped, the Streetfighter gains 2 kilos, posting 178 kilos in the ring.
The same weight as a 950 Hypermot ‘for twice the potato. When the cylinders render their verdict, the order is set at 208 hp subject to a torque of 12.6 mkg. Crazy. Fortunately, Ducati does not let go of its hyper-roadster alone on the roads. The 1103 cm V4 is accompanied by a host of electronic aids, all present to channel the effectiveness of this ball of raw nerves. They start with the DPL standing start assistant, then follow one another: DTC Evo 2 traction control, DWC Evo anti-wheeling, DSC slip control, Cornering Evo cornering ABS, engine brake management EBC Evo and the Up shifter&Down DQS Evo. The pilot can adjust all this from the 5-inch color TFT screen.
A quick tour of the accessories side will allow you to load the Streetfighter V4 more electronically, with the Ducati Multimedia System, DDA + GPS telemetry or the DLT GPS automatic chrono recorder..
Acceleration, composure, control, ardor, orbiting, erection, precision … These are words that will take on another meaning and that will have to be carefully applied when the speed is racing. The only elements that can calm the missile, the Brembo Stylema brake calipers with monobloc design and radial mounting – M50 only better, with first class efficiency.
This is also what the Ducati Streetfighter V4 S will ask its pilot if he dares to provoke it. Besides, how could it be otherwise riding such a bitch !?!
The price ? Like dab: a mortgage.
Let’s see the Driving Modes of the Ducati Streetfighter V4 S:
In mode Race, the rider can count on 208 hp, with direct Ride by Wire throttle response and a firm suspension designed to optimize performance. Race mode places the electronics at a low level of intervention, without diminishing safety, with ABS set to level 2, rear wheel lift control disabled and the function " Slide by brake " (which allows pilots to drift around corners safely) enabled.
By selecting the mode Sport, the rider also benefits from 208 hp, with direct throttle response and sporty suspension. The electronic controls are designed to provide perfect handling on dry roads. Rear wheel lift detection during braking is activated, and ABS Cornering is tuned to maximize cornering performance.
The mode Street is recommended when driving on low-grip surfaces. This driving mode gives the rider 155 horsepower and progressive throttle response and suspension better suited to uneven or rough roads. Electronic control adjustments provide grip and stability to maximize safety.
