- A grower
I’m split on this, I’ve been looking forward to seeing this bike since I saw the road going V4rr at Brands being tested and am contemplating it for next year, but…
It’s ugly as hell from the front, but hey I suppose you don’t look at the mantelpiece when poking the fire, I love the side profile so gonna have to take it for a ride and see what it’s like
What do you all think
It’s the winglets that spoil the front profile in my view
What is cool is that the front headlight styling was based on a sketch of the joker according to the press release from Ducati
I do like it, I would just hope that they engineered it so it was a good road bike rather than a de-faired racebike. My gripe with the last Ducati Streetfighter and the Aprilia V4 streetfighter was that they were all too stiff/hard for the road.
Have to see it up close, pictures are great but nothing like getting up close and personal.
I’m not a massive Duc fan so defo asking the wrong person.
That’s a good point, although a colleague has the Aprilia and no complaints
I disagree Jay, a streetfighter by very definition should be an unfaired sports bike.
Otherwise it’s just an alternative shape to a scrambler 1200.
I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s hideous, but I don’t think it’s a particularly pretty bike. I’m not sure what’s going on with headlights on these modern nakeds but they’re a mess, the one on the new Street Triple RS is particularly bad side on.
Not been a massive fan of Ducati design of late, nor of the whole Street fighter thing either.
i am really liking the styling, would be interested to see one in the flesh
Not sure about the tail/seat but I like it.
That’s been my complaint about Ducati’s for a while, they seem to give up at the seat, and just fudge the rear together.
i like it
just not the gold engine
