As we speak, dealerships in the USA are starting to see the Ducati Streetfighter V4 arrive at their doorsteps, which is certainly some good news in a time where the world (including the two-wheeled one) is a bit crazy.
This news is lucky for those soon-to-be owners as well, because not even the world’s press (outside of a few partnering publications) have been able to swing a leg over the Streetfighter V4 yet, as the international press launch for the machine had to be canceled because of the coronavirus outbreak.
Ducati made lemonade out of those lemons, hosting a “virtual press launch” online for all to see. Of course, you can’t beat the real thing. While we can ogle spec sheets and hear testimonials from Ducati employees, it is no substitute for an unbiased ride on a motorcycle.
Don’t worry though, the Ducati Streetfighter V4 S is on our short-list for must-ride machines in 2020 – we will get you a review on one, just as soon as we can.
Until then though, we bring you this “mega gallery” of photos that Ducati would have shared with journalists and publications at the bike’s planned debut in Spain earlier this year.
It includes some interesting design sketches, some photos we have already seen, as well as some new shots. Mostly, it is just two-wheeled pornography for people who like red bikes (or any color bike for that matter, all bike lives matter at Asphalt & Rubber).
Now, we can’t know for certain until we ride the bike, but it does appear from the photos here that the Ducati Streetfighter V4 S is capable of making a wheelie from its 205hp four-cylinder “Desmosedici Stradale” engine. So, there’s that to look forward to.
There are 127 high-resolution photos in the gallery below. Somewhere in that surely there is a new desktop background for your computer. Enjoy!
