THE FIGHT

N E W D U C A T I S T R E E T F I G H T E R V 4

The new

Italian Stallion is

ready to fight!

FORMULA

After teasing the

world with a naked V4

Streetfighter machine at

the Pikes Peak race earlier

this year, Ducati finally

unveiled their latest jewel

to the V4 crown - The V4

Streetfighter.

After more than a year of

endless development and

testing, Ducati has finally rolled

out its 2020 Streetfighter V4 during a

well-attended world premiere in Rimini,

Italy, on October 23, 2019.

Still gorgeously wrapped in the

Ducati signature deep red skin, the new

Streetfighter V4 appeared on center stage

with a more powerful stance and whoa—

we see a set of aerodynamic wings!

Nope, the Streetfighter has no plans of

flying up in the sky. Those four angular

winglets attached to the radiator edges

are meant to keep this 208hp road bike

stable at high speeds.

In principle, they have the same

purpose as the winglets on the

Desmosedici race bikes that crank out

more than 250hp. They generate up to

28kg of downforce to keep the front

wheel pinned to the asphalt at 270kph.
