New Streetfighter V4 N E

New Streetfighter V4 N E W D U C A T I S T R E E T F I G H T E R V 4 THE FIGHT The new Italian Stallion is ready to fight! FORMULA After teasing the world with a naked V4 Streetfighter machine at the Pikes Peak race earlier this year, Ducati finally unveiled their latest jewel to the V4 crown - The V4 Streetfighter. After more than a year of endless development and testing, Ducati has finally rolled out its 2020 Streetfighter V4 during a well-attended world premiere in Rimini, Italy, on October 23, 2019. Still gorgeously wrapped in the Ducati signature deep red skin, the new Streetfighter V4 appeared on center stage with a more powerful stance and whoa— we see a set of aerodynamic wings! Nope, the Streetfighter has no plans of flying up in the sky. Those four angular winglets attached to the radiator edges are meant to keep this 208hp road bike stable at high speeds. In principle, they have the same purpose as the winglets on the Desmosedici race bikes that crank out more than 250hp. They generate up to 28kg of downforce to keep the front wheel pinned to the asphalt at 270kph. 22 RIDEFAST MAGAZINE NOVEMBER 2019 RIDEFAST MAGAZINE NOVEMBER 2019 23
