Ducati India has launched the Streetfighter V4 SP, at a price tag of Rs 34.99 lakh (ex-showroom India). This makes it about Rs 10.76 lakh more expensive than the existing S variant. The motorcycle does come equipped with higher-spec components and a few other changes to justify that premium.
The Streetfighter gets a special ‘Winder Test’ livery inspired by the Ducati Corse motorcycles ridden in MotoGP and SBK Championships pre-season tests. It sports a combination of multiple shades like Matte Black for body panels, Matte Carbon finish wings, brushed aluminium fuel tank and a few streaks of red. It also gets the Italian flag colour scheme on the carbon wings.
The motorcycle rides on Marchesini forged magnesium wheels that are 0.9 kg lighter than the forged aluminium units featured on the S variant. It gets Brembo Stylema R callipers for braking and an Ohlins Smart EC 2.0 suspension setup. Other noteworthy elements include adjustable aluminium and CNC machined footpegs, a carbon front mudguard, and a lithium-ion battery.
At the heart of all this is a liquid-cooled 1103cc V4 Desmosedici Stradale engine that makes 208 bhp and 12.5 kgm of peak torque. It also gets a long list of electronic aids like cornering ABS, traction control, slide control, wheelie control, launch control, engine brake control and so on.
Ducati has commenced bookings for the Streetfighter V4 SP at its authorised dealerships across India with deliveries to commence immediately. It is a beast of a vehicle, so do keep an eye out for our review soon.
