Specifications of Ducati Streetfighter V4 SP
The beating heart is the 1,103 cc Desmosedici Stradale with 208 hp capable of delivering a torque of 123 Nm at 9,500 rpm. On the Streetfighter V4 SP the Desmosedici Stradale is fitted 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, a crucial aspect to be truly effective on the track when pushing to the limit.
The Ducati Streetfighter V4 SP is powered by the marque’s Desmodici Stradale, fuel-injected, liquid cooled, 4-valve per cylinder, 1,103cc, 90 degree V4 engine that features a rearward rotating crankshaft. The super naked Streetfighter V4 SP stands out because of its “Winter Test” livery, which Centro Stile Ducati created by taking inspiration from the bikes used during MotoGP and SBK pre-season testing.
