Ducati Streetfighter Intro | Naked Superbike

Soul of a Superbike, Attitude of a Fighter.

Living up to its name, there was little doubt that the Ducati Streetfighter would score a round one knock-out when it entered the ring for the first time at the 2008 EICMA Show in Milan. Making an immediate impact on the international press and the public, it was nominated "most beautiful bike in show" and raised the bar for extreme nakeds by creating a new point of reference in the market.

The Superbike soul of the Ducati Streetfighter combines aggressiveness with the refined elegance of a naked and just one look at the bike provokes an intense rush of adrenaline and excitement. Stripped to the bare essentials, its combination of state-of-the-art race technology, skeletal styling and contemporary design takes Ducati’s big naked concept to the very top of the fighter food chain.

The true Ducati spirit is captured by an incredibly powerful Desmodromic L-Twin 1098 "Testastretta Evoluzione" engine producing 155hp with an incredibly wide spread of power thanks to 85lb-ft (11.7kgm) of torque. The Streetfighter’s power and precision is further maximised by weighing in at just 368lb (167kg) (S version) and further benefits from technology derived directly from Ducati’s MotoGP and Superbike projects. Ducati Traction Control and Data Analysis, racing-style braking system, fully adjustable suspension and forged wheels all come as standard equipment on the ‘S’ to complete the battle-ready package.

As orders from all over the world flood into Ducati’s factory in Bologna, the Streetfighter and Streetfighter S models go into production.
