Ducati Unveils Streetfighter

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Ducati debuted the Street Fighter superbike in Milan this week. With the soul of a superbike and the attitude of a fighter, this performance motorcycle presents a vehicle that has bee stripped to the bare essentials. Its combination of state-of-the-art race technology, exposed styling and cultured design takes Ducati’s “naked” concept to the very top of the fighter food chain. With 155hp of Ducati L-Twin muscle harnessed in a super-light bike that packs more punch for its weight than any other contender, the bike is also easy-to-ride.

For a design viewpoint, the tank and seat shapes leave no doubt as to the Streetfighter’s roots. It is the upright and commanding riding position that really starts to shape the character of this ultimate naked bike. New, minimalistic controls, instrumentation and headlight design leave the front looking clean and mean, while twin-stacked right-side mufflers at the rear leave the tail-end high and sharp. No other Ducati has ever achieved such an aggressive stance while providing a comfortable, empowering and controllable ride.
