Its great news for bike lovers, Ducati’s Panigale V4 is one powerful machine with wild styling and 214-horsepower. The arrival of the new V4 engine offers a prime opportunity to reclaim top honors in the class. And now the company has revealed a prototype Streetfighter to debut. Ducati’s newest hot rocket will undergo some benchmark testing at the world-renowned Pikes Peak road course as well.
Missing for some years, Ducati launches the Panigale V2 and will be arrived in 2020. Available for the Panigale V4 range, the exhaust system is designed from a Ducati dedicated team.

Ducati is indeed reviving the Streetfighter, this time built around the Desmosedici Stradale V4 engine. The 1,103 cc road-legal version of Ducati’s new motor powers the Panigale V4 and V4 S series with a stunning output of 214 hp and that’s just the base regime.
The 110 cc racing version of this engine in the V4 R produces 221 hp and goes up to 234 with an Akrapovic racing exhaust system. If any customer can do this with a simple add-on off the shelf, imagine what a proper racing team can get out of this powerhouse.
“The Streetfighter V4 will be one of the stars of the Ducati World Premiere 2020,” declared Claudio Domenicali, CEO of Ducati. “Streetfighter V4 is the Panigale for road riding; so there was no better stage than the Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb for what will be the highest performance Streetfighter ever put into production.”
The new Streetfighter V4 will logically come with all the electronic gadgetry of the Panigale, a survival necessity on public roads with such a fire-breathing power plant strapped to your right hand. As for pricing, expect something lower but probably not very far from the entry-level Panigale V4’s price tag.
