The Ducati Streetfighter is a streetfighter-style motorcycle produced by Ducati.[2] The design of Streetfighter is the work of designer Damien Basset from the Ducati design team.[3]

The Ducati Streetfighter is equipped with: An L-Twin muscle with a big-bore torque, thoroughbred chassis, single-sided swingarm, and Monobloc brakes.[4]

The tank and seat shapes is an important root to the Streetfighter, it creates an upright and commanding riding position for the rider. It has minimalistic style controls, instrumentation and headlight design to the front of the streetfighter, while twin-stacked right-side mufflers at the rear leave the tail-end high and sharp.[5]


Ducati’s ‘S’ treatment of the Streetfighter pushes its tech spec to the red line. Öhlins suspension front and rear and lightweight Marchesini forged wheels stack up serious credibility, while the front fender and cam belt covers in super-light carbon fibre help reduce the dry weight to an extreme 167kg (368lb).[6]

Engine Specs[edit]

The 1098 Testastretta Evoluzione needs little introduction. Debuting in 2007, it went on to form the basis of a motor that powered Ducati to Superstock and Superbike World.[7]

The power and torque produces a85lb-ft (11.7kgm) of torque and 155hp (114kW), and the Streetfighter’s creates 1098 of power. The L-Twin, Testastretta Evoluzione engine gives power-to-weight and torque-to-weight ratios in its class.[8]

For the machines exhausts; 2-1-2 exhaust system is made from weight-saving 1mm thick steel and flows from 58mm to 63.5mm diameter pipes. The system uses two lambda probes to ensure precise fuel mapping for performance and an electronic valve in the mid-section to achieve a wide spread of power. The cannon-style, vertically stacked, brushed steel mufflers deliver the famous Ducati L-Twin sound synonymous power.[9]

The Streetfighter’s power house is protected by twin coolant radiators, curved in a style for performance with visual effect. The upper radiator is assisted by lightweight, high flow electric fan assemblies while the lower sits in the front of the belly pan, which also houses an efficient oil heat exchanger.[10]
