All hail the new 2022 Ducati Streetfighter models!
If you happen to love the Ducati Streetfighter V4 model, then you'll probably fall head over heels when you see the new 2022 Ducati Streetfighter V4 SP. Unveiled together with the new Ducati Streetfighter V2 (we'll get to that in a bit, just keep reading), the V4 SP comes with a host of upgrades that takes the already manic Streetfighter V4 onto a whole new level.
This limited-edition model comes with the "Winter Test" livery inspired by the Ducati bikes you would normally see during MotoGP and WorldSBK during pre-season testing sessions. Apart from looking good, the new Streetfighter V4 SP also comes with parts and specs derived from the brand's ultimate superbike yet, the Superleggera V4.
Coming in hot with carbon fibre rims, the Streetfighter V4 SP is 1.4kg lighter than the regular Streetfighter V4 S, and when you combine everything else, the V4 SP is actually 3kg lighter. That's doing some added favour for its 1,103cc Desmosedici Stradale V4 engine which churns out 208hp and 123Nm of torque. Just like the Superleggera V4, it also comes with the sexy STM-EVO SBK dry clutch system.
Other highlights include Brembo Stylema brakes, aluminium footpegs, carbon fibre heel guards, Premium Ohlins semi-active suspension system, and a look that is hard for a lot of folks to not fall in love with. But if the limited edition Streetfighter V4 SP is a bit out of your range, perhaps the new 2022 Ducati Streetfighter V2 might be the turning point for you.
Looking just as sexy as its V4 brother, the Streetfighter V2 can be easily distinguished as the stock bike doesn't come with a pair of aero fairings or winglets like the V4 (but we're pretty sure that you can get your hands on some to amp up its exterior appeal). The V2 was also designed to be just as fun but with an added layer of comfort thrown into the mix.
This can be seen via its longer and wider saddle with new paddings, repositioned footpegs set for better everyday use, wider handlebar, and more. As for firepower, the Streetfighter V2 comes with a 955cc Superquadro twin engine that produces a more manageable (but still powerful) 153hp and 101Nm of torque. Weighing in at 200kg (kerb), you are sure to have a lot of fun ripping through the canyons and twisties on this.
The electronics department is just as equipped with specs like
- ABS Cornering EVO
- Ducati Traction Control EVO 2
- Ducati Wheelie Control EVO
- Ducati Quick Shift up/down EVO 2
- Engine Brake Control EVO
- Headlights and indicators
- Ducati Multimedia System
We're pretty sure that the Streetfighter V2 will sell like hotcakes once it arrives here in Malaysia. As for the Streetfighter V4 SP, that one will most likely get booked even before it arrives here on our shores.
