Ducati and Lamborghini go for a K.O. with new Streetfighter V4
Lamborghini and Ducati have teamed up for another knockout limited edition sports bike. The Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini is the second collaboration between the two Italian brands after the Siàn-inspired Diavel 1260 Lamborghini of 2020.
This time it’s the Huracán STO that provided the vision for the bike’s look and the Panigale V4 S that sits beneath the bodywork. Unique forged wheels echo those of the STO, while the front mudguard, tank cover, belly pan, and tail have all been sculpted to emulate the supercar. Visible carbon fiber is used extensively throughout, and even the saddle takes its lead from the Huracán’s seats. The adjustable rider foot pegs, brake and clutch levers are formed from billet aluminum, and a rorty Akrapovič exhaust provides the finishing touch—plus a suitable soundtrack.
The 1103 cc Desmosedici Stradale engine outputs 208 hp and drives through a dry clutch from the Streetfighter SP. The motor is also a stressed element in the aluminum chassis which features Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active suspensio, and stopping power by Brembo 330 mm discs.
The new bike will offer the same 630 production run as the Diavel with an additional 63 bikes for special Lamborghini customers who will be able to specify their two-wheelers to match their four-wheelers. As standard the Streetfighter will be delivered in the vivid Verde Citrea green /Arancio Dac orange color scheme pictured, but Lamborghini’s Speciale Cliente will be able to work with Centro Stile Ducati to create doppelgängers of their cars from a wide range of hues. As if that’s not enough owners will also be encouraged to dress the part in custom Dianese leathers.
Deliveries will begin in April 2023 and, although prices have yet to be released, you might have a fight on your hands to get one. The Diavel Lamborghini sold out within weeks.
