Stories about the v-twin Ducati Streetfighter V2 middle class motorcycle have been circulating since the Italian brand introduced the V4 machine of a similar name.
As the Ducati Streetfighter V4 has become a real hit, it is definitely the right time to concretize these stories.
The story behind the mentioned model is quite simple: take a Ducati Panigale V2 and take off its armor to get a classic street fighter look.
There are also alleged photos of the model from testing on Italian roads, although there are almost no details about it, the unit that would drive it, but also the design solutions.
Guided by the logic and understanding of the Italian brand, we can expect a v-twin unit with a volume of 955 cubic meters (Superquadro), which in Panigale V2 form delivers 153 hp and 104 Nm of maximum torque.
With the monocoque design of the aluminum frame, a small weight awaits us, most likely less than 200 kg.
As for the price, Streetfighter V2 will be cheaper than Panigale V2, but we can only speculate about the specific amount at this moment.
Of the components there will be the Showa suspension, Brembo M4.32 front brake calipers, and we don’t expect the model to get a high-specification “S” version.
We assume that the unit will be adapted to street driving, so part of the power will probably be sacrificed in favor of more torque at medium speed.
We expect that the performance will be better than on the Streetfighter 848 model, which had 132 hp, and as far as market rivals of the new machine are concerned, there will be KTM 890 Duke R, MV Agusta Brutale 800 and Triumph Speed Triple RS.
The package should include an electronics system with an inertial measurement unit (IMU), traction control, ABS, as well as a TFT instrument panel and LED lighting.
It only remains to be seen when the new machine will debut. We could see the Ducati Streetfighter V2 already at this year’s EICMA fair, but we shouldn’t be surprised if the Italians wait another year.
