Ducati presented in Italy the new 2023 Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini, its very exclusive 1,103cc ‘hypernaked’ motorcycle, which arrives with design and elements inspired by the Huracán STO super sports car.
The Huracán STO is the highest performance model ever made in the Huracán family, created with the sole aim of offering all the sensations of sport driving and the technology of a true race car in a model approved for road use.
Made for a few, the new Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini will have production limited to 630 + 63 numbered units, that is, 630 units for the ‘general’ public, and 63 units, called Speciale Clienti, exclusively for Lamborghini customers.
The 630 units of the Ducati Streetfighter Lamborghini will be made in Verde Citrea/Arancio Dac, one of the Huracán STO’s specific color combinations. Part of the side wings and Brembo brake calipers also come in Arancio Dac color. The Upside Down Öhlins front fork is all black.
The other 63 units can be configured with body colors and wheels exactly like each customer’s Lamborghini. It will also be possible to choose the colors of the brake calipers and the seat details.
Panigale V4 S base and Huracán STO details
The Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini uses the technical basis of the 2023 Panigale V4 S and features exclusive items made especially for this bike, such as the forged wheels and the rear wheel titanium locking nut, both with the design of the Huracán STO.
But that’s not all: some structures of this new bike have been redesigned and are heavily inspired by the Lamborghini supercar, such as the front fender, the side panels of the tank, and the belly and tail covers, reminiscent of the air intakes and extractors from the Huracán STO.
Furthermore, all carbon components (including the aforementioned front fender, belly grille, radiator cap, and tail cap) are made with the same texture visible on Lamborghini’s super sports car. The seat is also inspired by the finish of the Huracán STO’s seats thanks to the presence of highlights in the same color as the superstructures.
Finally, the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini is enhanced by other precious components such as the billet aluminum adjustable footpegs and brake and clutch levers (in collaboration with Rizoma), and the heel protectors, seat pad, Ignition switch panel and cover made of special carbon fiber. The model is complemented by the Akrapovič exhaust silencer in titanium, with carbon fiber cover.
The heart of the 2023 Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini is the liquid-cooled 1,103cc Desmosedici Stradale engine, capable of generating up to 153 kW (208 hp) of maximum power at 13,000 rpm, and 123 Nm / 12.5 kgfm / 90.4 lb-ft of torque at 9,500 rpm (EU version).
This engine is characterized by a counter-rotating shaft, desmodromic timing with four valves per cylinder and TwinPulse firing order derived from the model used in MotoGP, and the clutch is dry, just like in MotoGP’s Ducati GP22 and WorldSBK‘s Panigale V4R.
In addition, the aluminum front frame uses the engine as a stress element, the suspensions are semi-active Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 units, while the Brembo braking system features Stylema calipers and 330 mm discs.
Finally, the carbon aerodynamic package, based on biplane wings, is integrated into the side tank covers, and stabilizes the bike at high speeds without compromising agility and handling. The curb weight is 197.5 kg (435.4 lb).
Anyway, the 2023 Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini is offered in the UK from £55,995 and in the US from $68,000 (MSRP).
