Ducati have unveiled two updated Streetfighter models, check out the 2022 V2 and 2022 V4 SP!

Introducing top-of-the-range Streetfighter V4 SP model, offered in a numbered version and marked with the legendary “SP” (which stands for Sport Production)  abbreviation. Ducati claim the new Streetfighter V4 SP is the most adrenaline-pumping naked to ever roll its wheels off the production line in Borgo Panigale.

The Streetfighter V4 SP comes with a dedicated livery, premium equipment derived from the Superleggera V4, as well as with a restrained weight: 196kg in running order (3kg less compared to the Streetfighter V4 S).

The “Winter Test” livery has been conceived by the Ducati Centro Stile taking inspiration from the Ducati Corse motorcycles ridden in MotoGP and SBK Championships pre-season tests. The Matte Black of the fairings combined with the Matte Carbon finish of rims and wings, contrasts with the bright Red accents and the sparkling brushed aluminium tank.

Ducati have spent plenty of time testing the updated models out on the track!

The Streetfighter V4 SP is equipped with 5 split-spoke carbon rims, 1.4kg lighter than the forged aluminum ones fitted as standard on the Streetfighter V4 S and capable of reducing the inertia by 26 per cent at the front and 46 per cent at the  rear, making the bike significantly more agile and lighter when changing direction. The exclusive Brembo Stylema R front brake calipers guarantee great braking power.

The new bike is equipped with the Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 with the event-based system that can vary the damping according to the rider’s riding style, together with biplane wings they increase the handling capabilities at high speeds.



The beating heart is the 1,103cc Desmosedici Stradale with 208hp capable of delivering 123Nm@9,500 pm (Euro 5-compliant). On the Streetfighter V4 SP the Desmosedici Stradale is fitted with the STM-EVO SBK dry clutch, which Ducati claim has a better anti-hopping function, even in the most aggressive downshifts, and greater fluidity during all “off-throttle” stages.

“The 1,103cc is fitted with the STM-EVO SBK dry clutch, which Ducati claim has a better anti-hopping function.”

The equipment of this unique bike is enriched by the adjustable aluminium and CNC machined footpegs, the carbon front mudguard, the lithium-ion battery and a range of accessories suitable for the track days, such as the open carbon clutch cover and the caps for removing the licence plate holder.



The 2022 Ducati Streetfighter V4 SP will land in May 2022 and have a rideaway of $48,400.

2022 Ducati Streetfighter V2
The Streetfighter V2 is essentially a Panigale V2 stripped of the fairings, with high and wide handlebar, 178kg dry weight, powered by 955cc Superquadro delivering 153hp and controlled by a latest-generation electronic package. 

“The Streetfighter V2 is essentially a Panigale V2 stripped of the fairings, with high and wide handlebar, 178kg dry weight, powered by 955cc Superquadro delivering 153hp and controlled by a latest-generation electronic package.”

Ducati say the new Streetfighter V2 is a sports naked with a one-of-a-kind character. It accommodates the needs of those riders who are looking for a bike capable of combining the sporting Panigale V2’s DNA with both the attitude and style of the admired Streetfighter.



It is noteworthy that this project is the precious fruit of the reinterpretation of Ducati’s successful “Fight Formula”,  this time applied to the Panigale V2, stripped of the fairings and equipped with high and wide handlebars. The dry  weight of this vehicle is 178kg and the engine is the 955cc and 153hp Superquadro controlled by the latest generation electronic package.  

The design concept behind this new model is built around the mechanics inherited from the Panigale V2, with the  Superquadro engine as a bearing element.

Ergonomics has major rider-centric features and is focused on road use with the added values of sportiness and comfort. The high and wide aluminium handlebars replace the handlebar risers of the Panigale V2. The saddle now is wider and has new padding that contributes to make this bike even more comfortable. In addition, the footpegs have been repositioned to increase the amount of room. 

Ducati say that all the improvements to ergonomics allow the rider great control in sporty riding and facilitate everyday use at the same time.

The engine of the Streetfighter V2 is the 955cc Euro 5-compliant Superquadro, capable of delivering a maximum power of 153hp@10,750rpm and a maximum torque of 101.4Nm@9,000rpm. Compared to  the Panigale V2, the Streetfighter V2 project has a shorter final ratio (15/45 vs 15/43): this figure guarantees greater torque to the wheel at road speeds while giving better engine responsiveness when re-opening the throttle.



While developing this new model, Ducati engineers focused their obsessive attention on the chassis set-up. The Superquadro engine is used as a bearing element connecting the compact front structure,  consisting of a monocoque frame in die-cast aluminium fixed to the engine head. The single-sided swingarm, which is also connected to the engine, is 16mm longer compared to that of the Panigale V2.

The Streetfighter V2 is also equipped with 5-spoke wheels and the new Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV tyres: 120/70 ZR17 at the  front and 180/60 ZR17 at the rear, which provide a super fast response to the rider’s needs. Except for the adoption of less aggressive brake pads, more suitable for road use, the whole braking system is taken from the Panigale V2 and features Brembo M4-32 monobloc radial calipers with 320mm diameter discs.



The comprehensive and modern electronic compartment fitting the Streetfighter V2 is inherited from the Panigale  V2. The 6-axis IMU inertial platform manages all the electronic controls of the bike and gives the position of the  bike in space in real time, sending the information to the control units that manage the controls. The electronic  package includes: ABS Cornering EVO with “slide by brake” functionality, Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO 2,  Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO, Ducati Quick Shift up/down (DQS) EVO 2, Engine Brake Control (EBC) EVO. 

The Streetfighter V2 features three different Riding Modes (Sport, Road, Wet) with dedicated control settings.

The Ducati Performance catalogue features an extended range of accessories, like the biplane wings, faithfully derived from the Streetfighter V4, guaranteeing downforce of 28kg at 265km/h. Furthermore, a complete Akrapovič racing exhaust is still available, with a further boost of power, up to 157hp and reduces the weight by 7kg. The single-seater kit, the approved Akrapovič exhaust and many other components that enhance the look and characteristics of the bike are also available. 

The Streetfighter V2 will be available in Australia and New Zealand from February 2022. The Suggested Ride Away Price in Australia will be $22,500…
