The 2023 Streetfighter V4 continues to be powered by the 1,103 cc Desmosedici Stradale V4 engine which makes 205 hp at 13,000 rpm and 123 Nm at 9,500 rpm, paied with a six-speed gearbox with a bi-directional Ducati Quickshifter (DQS). The power modes are new – Full, High, Medium, and Low.
The Low mode brings the power down from 205 hp to 165, bringing it to the V2 performance levels. The bike get a new Wet mode which engages all electronics and reduced power delivery to make riding on surfaces with less traction safer.
Like the Panigale V4, the swingarm pivot of the 2023 Streetfighter V4 range is positioned 4 mm higher, which helps in increasing the anti-squat action that offers better stability, precision and the ability to maintain the trajectory when exiting corners and while accelerating.
Ducati Streetfighter V4 SP2, a track-focussed naked bike, is special edition and will come in limited number. It will be offered in just one colour, which is the winter test livery. Globally, the 2023 Streetfighter V4 and the V4 S will arrive in dealerships January 2023 onwards, while the Streetfighter V4 SP2 will be in showrooms from March 2023. Expect the new Streetfighter V4 range to be launched in India soon.
