The Ducati Streetfighter V4 has joined the Ducati line-up in Malaysia. According to Next Bike Sdn Bhd, the official distributor of Ducati products in Malaysia, the Ducati Streetfighter V4 and Streetfighter V4 S are priced at RM115,900 and RM145,900 respectively.
The Streetfighter is a Panigale V4 with stripped off fairings, a high and wide handlebar, and aerodynamically enhanced with biplane wings, and a complete electronics package. The bike weighs 178 kg (dry weight) and is powered by the 1,100 cc Desmosedici Stradale which delivers 208 hp. This is the “Fight Formula” that gives life to the Streetfighter V4. The result is a modern and technologically advanced naked bike with an aggressive and emotional design, which doesn’t hide its thrilling levels of performance.
The Streetfighter V4 has minimalist full-LED headlights, recalling the front of the Panigale V4 while evoking the grin of the Joker (which the designer of this new naked drew inspiration from). Another Ducati hallmark is the V-shaped DRL already featured on the Panigale V4.
Its compact headlights are embedded in a meticulously designed dual-layer fairing that incorporates the air-box and LED cooling intakes, while a rear deflector diverts airflow from impacting the tank directly. The bike’s elegant yet aggressive design is complete with a front cover that hides the fixings and wirings of the TFT display.
The Streetfighter V4’s fast, agile mixed-road performance demands maximum stability at high speed and when braking, reduced wheel-up during acceleration and minimized electronic control of the suspension set-up. Thus, Ducati Corse specialists together with the Ducati Style Centre have developed aerodynamic biplane wings for the bike for optimum stability without compromising its performance.
Meanwhile, the latest-generation electronics package on the Streetfighter V4 is based on a 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (6D IMU) which instantly detects the bikes’ roll, yaw and pitch angles. The electronics oversee every part of the ride. Some controls manage start, acceleration and braking, others handle traction, while some lend a helping hand in corners and out-of-corner stretches.
Accompanying the Streetfighter V4, is the Streetfighter V4 S which features Marchesini forged wheels and Öhlins electrically controlled suspension (43 mm NIX30 forks and TTX36 monoshock) and steering damper. The latter uses the second-generation Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 system which, in addition to making full use of the IMU 6D, provides a more rider-friendly interface.
The Ducati Streetfighter V4 and V4 S, together with the Scrambler 1100 PRO and 1100 Sport PRO, are now available for viewing and orders at authorised Ducati dealerships in Petaling Jaya, Sungai Buloh and Penang.
To celebrate the launch of the bikes, Ducati Malaysia is holding a Ducati Digital Festival campaign from 1 November – 31 December 2020. This campaign offers great deals, including discounts of up to 70% on official merchandise, demo bikes clearance sale and special financing packages with the lowest interest rates.
