Ducati has brought the new Streetfighter V2 to the Indian motorcycle scene.
Its styling is the first thing that sets the V2 apart from other Streetfighter models. It features what Ducati calls “a styled-to-look-fast” look to distinguish it from the V4 by definition.
If you’re looking for an aggressive stance, you’ve come to the right place. The resculpted tank, frame rails, side cover, and bulges all help to give this bike a tremendous attitude. However, its tail section has an even more striking design feature.
And the Ducati Streetfighter V2 is no exception. Ducati says the bike was designed with “pure muscularity, simplicity and riding pleasure.” The Streetfighter family has grown beyond just a machine.
The new Streetfighter V2 arrives with a 955 cc Superquadro V2 motor, calibrating to 153 horsepower at 10,750 rpm and 74.8 lb-ft of torque at 9,000 rpm.
The bike comes Supported by a 6-speed transmission with Ducati Quick Shift EVO 2 up and down. The new V2 weighs 200 kg ( 441 ) pounds.
There is an aluminium single-sided swingarm on the rear. While on the front, we see the 43mm fully adjustable Showa big piston fork with a fully adjustable Sachs monoshock.
Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV tires support the pair of 17inch alloy wheels while 320mm semi-floating brake discs perform the braking duties.
And radially-mounted Brembo Monobloc M4.32 four-piston callipers on the front, while the opposite end has a 245mm single disc paired with a two-piston Brembo calliper.
Sachs steering and Bosch cornering ABS EVO come as standard.
Deciding which is the best bike Ducati makes is a tough ask. The firm has an outstanding range.
And naked machines with different engine capacities and electronic rider aid. And that’s before you even get into the Ducati range: the flag-bearers for all things strange and wonderful.
There’s no stopping the Ducati Streetfighter — no. It is the brand’s most accessible motorcycle in India and continues to be one of the best-selling motorcycles in its segment.
The Streetfighter V has been receiving much love from all quarters, and for a good reason — it takes Italian design and gives practicality to it.
In fact, at Rs 17.25 lakh (ex-showroom, Pan India), the new Streetfighter V2 is just Rs 5 lakh less expensive than its elder sibling, the Streetfighter V4, which makes it one of Ducati’s most affordable and attainable motorcycles and competes with Triumph Speed Triple RS, Harley-Davidson Sportster S, and the BMW R nineT.
