Ducati Street Fighter Streetfighter S
Ducati's 'S' treatment of the Streetfighter takes its sophistication way off the scale. Superbike spec Öhlins suspension front and rear with lightweight forged Marchesini wheels add extra street credibility when in town and that all-important 'feel' when exploring the Streetfighter's sports soul.
Add street-going Ducati Traction Control (DTC) and Ducati Data Analysis (DDA) as standard equipment and you'll understand that the Streetfighter S is not just muscle - it's intelligent too.
Soul Of A Superbike - Attitude Of A Fighter
The Streetfighter's Superbike soul combines fighter attitude and naked sophistication to create a machine of pure adrenaline.
Stripped to the base essentials, its combination of state-of-the-art race technology, exposed styling and cultured design takes Ducati's big naked concept to the very top of the fighter food chain.
With 155hp of awesome Ducati L-Twin muscle harnessed in a stripped-down, super-light, 167kb (368lb) bike that packs more punch for its weight than any other contender, this fighter is gloves-off and ready for action.
Whether laying down the miles on open roads or ripping up the urban asphalt, no other bike in town will roll with the same stylish fire-power.
Streetfighter - The ultimate naked.
The Ducati Streetfighter. Ripping-up the asphalt from Spring 2009.
The streetfighter culture was born on the backstreets of Northern Europe during the late 70s and 80s. If the Café racer movement had taken traditional bikes and transformed them to establish out-and-out sport bikes, then Streetfighters were definately anti-establishment. They evolved by removing the fairings from sports bikes, fitting higher bars and customising to create high-performance, over-the-top nakeds. No, Ducati have taken that concept and applied their own Italian sophistaction to a stunning, factory-prepared Streetfighter.
Ducati's Streetfighter project was inevitable. the passion to build the most successful Superbikes ever, mixed with the desire to create iconic, naked motorcycles was a cocktail of adrenaline just waiting to happen. Who else would create a bike for out-and-out pursuits to celebrate naked power in all its forms? A bike with muscle-engine performance, aggressive chassis engineering and intelligent electronics all laid bare to appreciate, respect and enjoy. Ducati build bikes for connoisseurs - for bikers who appreaciate the details that come together to make an awesome bike, for perfectionists who instantly recognise excellence when they see it.
Ducati motorcycles aren't just a means of transport, they're a lifestyle that set you aside from the rest of the world. They are an extension of character and the ultimaet personal statement. The Streetfighter is built with pure Ducati sophistication and it's ready to impress. If you're riding downtown, arrive in style. If you're out of town carving a line though the turns, do it with naked passion. Do ita all on a Ducati Streetfighter and own the road with complete and utter Desmo domination.
Producing a ballistic 87.5lb-ft (11.7kgm) to torque, the Streetfighter's awesome 1098 power house will have no fear of the sports naked competition. The L-Twin, 4 valves per cylinder, Desmo, Testastretta Evoluzione engine is fuel injected by Marelli and exhausts through massive diameter pipes and into twin mufflers to sound as mean as it looks.
Born To Fight
The purpose-built Trellis frame, huge fork clamps, and longer swingarm create a chassis geometry special to the Streetfighter. It's revised steering angles and longer wheelbase provice rock-solid handling, even under the extreme acceleration of Ducati's incredible L-Twin torque.
