Ducati launches Streetfighter V4 SP with carbon wheels and 3kg lighter than V4 S
Ducati has launched in Europe the new 2022 Streetfighter V4 SP, its 1100cc ‘Hyper Naked’ bike, which arrives with new color, carbon wheels and Brembo Stylema R brake system, and is 3 kg lighter than the Streetfighter V4 S.
The new Streetfighter V4 SP is practically a ‘naked’ version of the supersport Superleggera V4. The bike’s name pays homage to the streetfighter culture, delivering characteristic elements such as wide and high handlebars, mid-position footpegs, aggressive and minimalist design and lots of power.
One of the differentials of this new version is the use of carbon wheels that are 1.4 kg lighter than those used in the V4 S, and that contribute to a total reduction of 3.4 kg.
Another highlight, clearly visible, is the new color scheme which, according to the brand, is based on the winter test bikes (pre-season test), both in MotoGP and in the WorldSBK.
The Matte Black of the fairings combined with the Matte Carbon finish of rims and wings, contrasts with the Red accents and the brushed aluminium fuel tank. Furthermore, it is enriched with some beautiful details such as the serial number printed on the handlebars and the color scheme of the Italian flag on the carbon wing tips.
The Ducati Streetfighter V4 SP has Full-LED lighting, and the headlight unit is minimalist, inspired by the Joker, yes, that’s right, the character in the comics by DC Comics.
Engine and Chassis
The heart of the Streetfighter V4 SP is the liquid-cooled 1,103 cm³ V4 Desmosedici Stradale engine, capable of generating up to 208 HP of maximum power at 13,000 rpm and 123 Nm (12.5 kgm) of torque at 9,500 rpm.
In this SP version, it is equipped with the STM-EVO SBK dry clutch, which guarantees a better anti-hopping function, even in the most aggressive downshifts, and greater fluidity during all ‘off-throttle’ stages.
The Streetfighter V4 SP also comes with carbon fiber wheels and Brembo Stylema R front brake calipers, as well as fully adjustable suspensions, USD Öhlins NIX-30 at the front, Öhlins TTX36 at the rear and Öhlins steering damper controlled by the second generation Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 system.
The Streetfighter V4 SP features a state-of-the-art 5″ full-digital color TFT instrument panel and Full-LED lighting with DRL (Daytime Running Light).
In addition, it has all the electronics derived from MotoGP, ie Cornering ABS EVO, Ducati Traction Control EVO 2, Ducati Slide Control, Ducati Wheelie Control EVO, Ducati Power Launch, Power Modes, Riding Modes, Ducati Quick Shift up/down EVO 2, Engine Brake Control EVO and Ducati Electronic Suspension EVO.
