Ducati Streetfighter V4 is officially confirmed for 2020 launch. The bike will be presented to the public at EICMA 2019.
It will undergo serious testing with Carlin Dunne – who won the Heavyweight class at the “Race to the Clouds” in 2012 and again in 2018. In 2012, while piloting a Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak, Dunne was the first rider to complete the 12.42-mile course in less than 10 minutes (9:52.819).
They are preparing for the Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb; in this edition, which will start on June 30th, Carlin Dunne will tackle the most famous hill climb in the world on the Ducati Streetfighter V4 prototype.
Ducati Streetfighter V4 is a fairing stripped Panigale V4, and been fitted it with high and wide bars. The high performance of the 1100 cm³ Desmosedici Stradale is kept in hand by aerodynamic profiles specifically designed for this model. The prototype will race with a “pixelated” livery, designed by the Centro Stile Ducati; unlike the normal practice with prototypes, the livery does not hide the lines, but exalts them by deliberately revealing how the bike will finally look.
As part of the development process of the new model, the “Race to the Clouds” has been identified as an ideal proving ground for testing the high performance of the Ducati Streetfighter V4.
“The Streetfighter V4 will be one of the stars of the Ducati World Premiere 2020,” declared Claudio Domenicali, CEO of Ducati. “Streetfighter V4 is the Panigale for road riding; so there was no better stage than the Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb for what will be the highest performance Streetfighter ever put into production.”
