2023 Ducati Streetfighter V4 Models Benefit from "Fight Formula"

Bologna, Emilia-Romagna, Italy

The Ducati "Fight Formula" has been applied fully and completely to a pair of 2023 models. The Streetfighter V4 and V4 S, including the more exclusive SP2 embody the principles of performance delivered in a super sports naked package.

Every inch of the 208hp Streetfighter V4 has been improved and upgraded from the single-seat configuration (with passenger saddle and footrests supplied) to the tank which emulates the 2022 Panigale V4 to minimal bodywork that exposes as much of the frame as possible to the repositioned swingarm pivot. Nothing goes without being reworked and refined.
