Ducati showed the new Streetfighter V4

Street fighter is presented in prototype status. Baptism will take place at the contest Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

So far, the company released photos of pre-production Streetfighter V4, but the bike, which will take place in the branded showrooms near the platform Panigale sportbike V4, will be almost identical to the prototype. Technical characteristics of the model has not yet been disclosed, so look at the photos and admire the predatory silhouette, the “beak” bends of the exhaust system Akrapovic. Mottled coloring is supposed to play the role of “camouflage” that prevents to consider the shape of the fuel tank, fairing and tail section, but disguise this, of course, conditional.

Ducati boss Claudio Domenicali calls the new “Panigale for ordinary roads”, thus emphasizing the essence of the track the first platform V4. Streetfighter have the same “four” with a volume of 1103 CC, but obviously, slightly derated, with more powerful traction at low and medium rpm. Recall that the Panigale V4 motor developing 214 HP at 13 000 rpm and 124 Nm at 10,000 rpm. Future rival of the BMW S1000R and Aprilia Tuono inherited shape sportbike and probably will in the basic version and the S version is equipped with V4 Panigale S – a steering damper and an adaptive suspension Ohlins (fork NIX-30 and a TTX36 monoshock), forged aluminum wheels and a lithium-ion battery.

I wonder will the winglets increase the stability of the trajectory in serial motorcycle?

The motorcycle will take part in the competition to raise the mountain pikes Peak in the us state of Colorado, to be held June 30. The debut of the production version, obviously, will take place at the autumn fair EICMA.
