2021 Ducati Streetfighter V4 Gets Dark Stealth Colour Scheme
Ducati has announced that the 2021 model year Streetfighter V4 lineup will come with several updates, which include a new colour scheme called Dark Stealth and Euro 5 certification.
As if the Streetfighter wasn’t menacing enough in its original Ducati Red shade, the Borgo Panigale brand takes the “Fight Formula” to the dark side with a matte black finish. The ominous hue is contrasted by silver accents on the radiator, exhaust and footpegs.
The Dark Stealth option is only available on the range-topping V4 S variant and according to Visor Down, it will cost £300 (RM1,627) more than the standard version in the UK.
Beyond the new paint job, Ducati has also made a few tweaks to ensure both the Streetfighter V4 and V4 S meet the stringent Euro 5 emission standards. While the silencer looks exactly the same as before, it actually has larger catalysts and new materials which can help reduce emissions.
On top of that, the bike also gets shorter and narrower exhaust manifolds and an oxygen sensor in each cylinder. With these changes, the 208 hp arrives 250 rpm later at 13,000 rpm while peak torque of 123 Nm is achieved 2,000 rpm earlier at 9,500 rpm.
Other updates include new front brake pumps and a self-purging clutch, both debuted on the Superleggera V4.
The Streetfighter is the result of the “Fight Formula”: the Panigale V4 stripped of the fairings, with a high and wide handlebar, 178 kg on the scale, powered by 1100 cc Desmosedici Stradale delivering 208 hp kept in hand by biplane wings and a complete electronic package.
The modern and technological Ducati naked bike has immediately enjoyed great success among motorcyclists all over the world, also confirmed by the positive feedback from the international media.
For 2021 Ducati presents the Streetfighter V4 S in a new Dark Stealth colour scheme, which joins the sporty Ducati Red. Furthermore, all models in the Ducati Streetfighter V4 range become compliant with the Euro 5 anti-pollution legislation (Only for Markets where EU 5 is applied).
2021 Model Year
To comply with the new European standards on pollutant emissions, as of 2021 all the Ducati Streetfighter V4 range models now comply with Euro 5 anti-pollution regulations.
New front brake pumps and a self-purging clutch have also been introduced, both originating from those used for the first time on the Superleggera V4.
Only for countries where Euro 5 standard applies.
Ready for the challenge
There are a multitude of engineering and technological aspects conceived for this champion road bike. A balance of distinctive lines, brutal output, state-of-the-art technology and components have been combined in this “Fight Formula” of the Streetfighter V4.
