About Ducati Streetfighter
The Ducati Streetfighter, as the name suggests, is part of the streetfighter-style motorcycle series and is available in two versions- Streetfighter 848 and Streetfighter S. Both these bikes are stripped down and restyled versions of the 1098 and 848 Evo superbikes, though they have been tweaked to give them their own unique character.
Both the Streetfighter bikes are based around the light but strong tubular steel trellis frame and share the wheelbase and other dimensions. Both the bikes get Ducati Traction Control (DTC) which has been programmed with wheel-spin tolerance and offers eight profiles for different response. Both the bikes get a two to one to two exhaust layout.
The Streetfighter 848 is powered by a 849cc L-twin engine which produces 132bhp and 93.5Nm. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox through a wet multiplate clutch system. The front Marzocchi forks are connected to 10-spoke aluminum wheels, while the rear gets a fully adjustable Sachs monoshock. It is available in two colour options- red and dark stealth. It goes up against the Kawasaki Z800 and Aprilia Mana 850 ABS.
The Streetfighter S is the bigger and more powerful among the two siblings. It is powered by a 1099cc L-twin engine producing 152bhp and 115Nm of torque and is mated to a six speed gearbox through a dry multiplate clutch with hydraulic control. The Streetfighter S is also available in two colour options- red and dark stealth. It goes up against Aprilia Tuono V4 APRC and BMW R1200 R.
