Ducati Streetfighter V4 and V4 S launched at Rs 19.99 lakh and Rs 22.99 lakh
After commencing pre-bookings for the Streetfighter V4 at select dealerships across the country a couple of weeks ago, Ducati has now launched the super-naked in India at Rs 19.99 lakh (ex-showroom, India), along with the higher-spec S variant - that will set you back an addition Rs 3 lakh over the cost of the standard model. Both variants are available in the 'Ducati Red' colour, with only the S having the 'Dark Stealth' colour option.
At the heart of the Ducati Streetfighter lies the brilliant 1,103cc Desmosedici Stradale V4 powerplant which puts out a healthy healthy 210PS@12,750rpm and 123Nm@9,500rpm, figures that the company says can further be raised by 23PS and 7Nm by simply slapping on a full-racing Ducati Performance Akrapovic exhaust (which also reduces the weight of the motorcycle by 6kg).
The Streetfighter V4 features a 5-inch full-TFT high resolution colour screen and has the ability to mount the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS). The bike also comes with three riding preset modes - Race, Sport and Street which essentially change the character of the engine and power output, while the S variant additionally allows the rider to adjust the suspension setup in addition to this.
While the Streetfighter V4 employs 43mm Showa Big Piston Forks (BPF) up front, with a fully adjustable Sachs monoshock handling suspension duty at the rear, the S variant is equipped with an Öhlins 43 mm NIX-30 fork, an Öhlins TTX36 rear shock absorber and an Öhlins event-based steering damper which can be controlled and adjusted electronically by the second-gen Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 system.
On the tech front, the Streetfighter V4 houses much of what you'd expect a Ducati of this calibre to comprise like the 6-axis IMU, Cornering ABS, Traction Control, Slide Control, Wheelie Control, Launch Control, Quick Shift up/down, Engine Brake Control, and of course, Ducati Electronic Suspension.
While bookings for the Streetfighter V4 are open across all Ducati dealerships across India, the Italian manufacturer has stated that deliveries will begin as soon as lockdown restrictions are lifted.
