Ducati has unveiled the new Streetfighter V2 for the international markets. This variant of the Streetfighter series should arrive in the Indian market soon, although the official details are unavailable yet. While we await an Indian launch announcement, here we explain all the details about the new Ducati Streetfighter V2.
Variants and Colours
Currently, Ducati is offering the new Streetfighter V2 in a single option that features Ducati Red colour with black rims.
The new Ducati Streetfighter V2 gets styling cues from the Streetfighter V4. Thus, this new naked roadster from the Italian manufacturer packs design elements such as a V-shaped LED DRL that is inspired by the famous grin of the Joker. Similar to the Streetfighter V2, this new model gets a muscular fuel tank, silver-coloured radiator shrouds, a sporty engine cowl, a step-up saddle, a single-sided swingarm, and an underbelly exhaust setup.
The feature list on the new Streetfighter V2 includes full-LED lighting and a 4.3-inch full-TFT dashboard. The electronic aids have been inherited from the Panigale V2. Thus, the new Streetfighter V2 uses a six-axis IMU inertial platform. The electronic package comprises three riding modes (Sport, Road, and Wet), power modes, cornering ABS with slide-by-brake function, traction control system, wheelie control, a bi-directional quickshifter, and engine brake control.
The mechanical specifications use a Euro5-compliant 955cc, twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that produces 150.9bhp of maximum power at 10,750rpm and a peak torque output of 101.4Nm at 9,000rpm. The claimed fuel economy stands at 6.0-litre/100km or 16.66kmpl. The service intervals are 12,000km/12 months. The valve clearance check interval stands at 24,000km.
The new Streetfighter V2 is built around a monocoque frame that uses the engine as the stressed member. The suspension tasks are handled by 43mm Showa BPF front forks and a Sachs rear mono-shock – both fully adjustable. The anchoring setup comprises twin 320mm discs with Brembo M4-32 monobloc four-piston callipers at the front and a single 245mm rotor with two-piston calliper. The dry weight is rated at 178kg while the claimed wet weight stands at 200kg.
