The Streetfighter was Ducati’s first attempt at creating a more approachable street naked than the brand’s proper bikes.
The Streetfighter moniker
The moniker stuck and most current streetfighters, Ducati’s included, are derived from the Streetfighter name.
Of course, engine performance and technology are more important than ever in this class.
But the key is making them work together—in a marriage of bikes and their engines.

The Streetfighter V4 sounds like it folds the best Ducati engines together—an engine powering a machine, if you will.
Once again, the engine is a Desmosedici Stradale V4 matched to a DIRAC system.
The Streetfighter V4’s purpose is to “bridge the gap between the Sport and naked lines”.
That should mean the new Streetfighter V4 SP will be sportier and laden with more tech than the current Streetfighter V4. It means it will also appeal more to non-enthusiast riders.
Ducati also appears to be positioning the new Streetfighter V4 SP above V4 S, stating that it “combines many features with new technology derived from their MotoGP experience.”
Ducati Streetfighter V4 SP
As per the EPA fuel economy and compliance documents, the Ducati will add the Streetfighter V4 SP variant in 2022. The SP be the third model in the Streetfighter lineup alongside the V4 and V4S.
The Streetfighter V4 SP will have the same 1,103cc motor displacement and calibrate to 208 horsepower and 90.4 lb-ft of torque.
Unlike the Panigale V4 SP, the Streetfighter V4 SP will, however, get more notable upgrades.
With the Streetfighter’s track-oriented SP variant hitting the market, Ducati will use this opportunity also to expand its product lineup.
Further, we will also see the Brembo MCS radial master cylinder and Brembo Stylema R callipers with Carbon fibre wheels, making it a more track-worthy weapon.
As per Ducati, the carbon wheels save three pounds, and Brembo Stylema R clampers help reduce the brake fluid temperature.
While on the other hand, the Brembo 19.21 MCS helps riders adjust the performance with variable distance and ratio adjustment.
With a stunning Panigale V4 SP already existing, we could see the same paint scheme on the new Streetfighter V4 SP making it more beautiful.

Our designers created the Streetfighter V4 SP render that loans the shade from Panigale V4 SP.
On the legendary Ducati 851 Superbike, the letters SP exhibited in the mid-1980s.

Those two letters, which stood for “Sport Production”, have now been created once again on the fairing of one of Ducati’s most influential and exclusive road bikes, the Panigale V4 that first came out in 2016.
The SP version comes enriched with reliable components that, aside from its aesthetics, assist in obtaining a greater level of performance out on the road.
And now we will see the same SP on its naked Streetfighter V4.
