Ducati launch the new Streetfighter across UK dealerships on the 9th and 10th May as the most eagerly awaited next generation naked bike breaks cover.The Ducati UK dealer network will be opening their doors for customers to test ride the new Streetfighter and selected models from the award winning Ducati range.
Living up to its name, the Streetfighter has already scored a knockout with bikers in the UK as it has become the most lusted after bike of the year. With the soul of a Superbike and the attitude of a fighter, this bike may be the new kid on the block but it is no shrinking violet.
The Streetfighter has the weight and power to take on any opposition with 155hp and weighing in at a fighting weight of 169kg or 167kg (‘S’ model). Although the Streetfighter may sound like a bruiser it maintains its Italian model looks - muscular yet lean and carrying componentry associated with Ducati quality.
Brembo monoblock brakes, Ohlins suspension, lightweight Marchesini forged wheels and Ducati Traction control (‘S’ model) help harness 85lb-ft of torque from the 1098 L-Twin Testastretta Evoluzione engine.
