You must know by now that there’s soon going to be a new Ducati Streetfighter V4 growling in the streets. We have covered various stories on this upcoming beast which you can check it out by clicking HERE. Now, there’s a new spy shot of the Streetfighter V4 and it suggests that Ducati might be providing two variants of the bike – standard and S.
The new spy shot reveals that the test bike misses out on golden forks which could mean that the Ohlins forks that we saw in the previous pictures have been replaced by Showa Big-Piston Front (BPF) fork at the front. The rear might be a Sachs unit. Another thing that caught our attention is the front brakes. We suspect that it might be using Brembo M50 monobloc calipers instead of the top-of-the-line Stylema calipers. Mind you, the M50s are not a joke. They are one of the bests in the business. Ducati has also removed the ‘winglets’ from this test mule.
All this suggests that there would be an S variant of the Streetfighter V4, similar to what we saw at the Pikes Peak, and a standard variant with the aforementioned changes. Talking about Pikes Peak, we have already seen the Streetfighter V4 prototype at this year’s race last month. It was ridden by late Carlin Dunne who set the fastest time in the qualifying and would have set a new world record at this year’s race if he hadn’t crashed a few metres before the finish line. While we are definitely very excited about the new Streetfighter V4 to be launched but we can’t deny that whenever we mention the bike we remember Carlin.
We’ll get to know the full details in November when the Streetfighter would make its global debut at EICMA.
