Ducati Streetfighter V2 launched in India at Rs 17.25lakh
The Ducati Streetfighter range in India finally includes the Streetfighter V2 now that the company has launched the smaller capacity street rocket at Rs. 17.25 lakh (ex-showroom, pan India) out here.
The new bike draws most of its sharp design cues from the bigger Ducati Streetfighter V4 with the same menacing look about it (minus those awesome shroud winglets) with the V-shaped LED DRLs. Like its burlier sibling, the V2 flexes some serious Italian muscle and looks ever so sleek with those silver-coloured radiator shrouds. The single-sided swingarm adds to the bikes high-grade finesse.
The Streetfighter V2 is powered by a 955cc Superquadro twin motor which pumps put a massive 155PS at 10,750rpm and 101Nm of maximum torque at 9,000rpm. Yup, it's the same motor from the Ducati Panigale V2, but now, the Streetfighter V2 gets different gear ratios to allow for smoother throttle response that's a lot more road-friendly. The motorcycle weighs in at 178kg (dry), and its' hardware includes a 43mm Showa BPF front fork and Sachs rear mono-shock for suspension duties.
In terms of features, the Streetfighter V2 gets three ride modes, a bi-directional quickshifter, full-LED lighting and a 4.3-inch TFT instrumentation display. The bike also gets a six-axis IMU which works in tandem with the electronics, and impacts the power modes, traction control system, wheelie control, cornering ABS, and engine brake control.
The Ducati Streetfighter V2 will now take on the likes of the BMW F900 R and the Kawasaki Z900 out here in India.
