2022 Ducati Streetfighter V2 – A Panigale without the fairings
The latest episode of Ducati World Premier 2022 witnessed the unveiling of the new Streetfighter V2.
The idea behind the new V2 is simple, take the Ducati Panigale V2, strip the fairing and boom! The Streetfighter V2 is born.
This also means that the Streetfighter V2 is powered by the same desmodromic Superquadro 955cc engine that makes 150hp and 102Nm.
However, the Streetfighter V2 is in a more approachable form for street riding compared to the Panigale V2.
It also features a longer single-sided swingarm, fully adjustable Showa Big Piston front forks, Sachs rear shocks (also adjustable) and Sachs steering damper.
Meanwhile, braking is done by the same Brembo M4-32 monobloc radial callipers with 320mm disc available on the Panigale V2.
Despite entering the market as a subtle version of the Streetfighter V4, the V2 still carries the entire Ducati electronic package which includes:
-ABS Cornering EVO with ‘slide by brake’ function
-Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO 2
-Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVP
-Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) EVO 2
-Engine Brake Control (EBC) EVO
-three riding modes (Sport, Road, Wet)
-full LED headlights with DRL
-4.3″ TFT display
-3-riding modes with 3-engine mapping
Despite not getting the iconic biplane wings as standard unlike its bigger siblings, owners can still get it as an added accessory that is designed to guarantee an additional downforce of 28kg at 265km/h.
