Ducati Streetfighter S

Ducati you to believe its Street-| fighter is an example of the

breed—essentially, a stripped-down Superbike. But it’s not—it’s than that. It’s an motorcycle that shares few with the ancestral Superbike, but not another dumbed-down OEM imposter. For the Superbike’s brutal power remains intact.

Because developed a …-bike chassis to control that copious the Streetfighter is better than any 1098 Streetfighter could be—and likely the best bike to hit the market yet.

A 1098 would be a handful. geometry wouldn’t agree the new weight distribution dictated by the riding position. Recognizing Ducati drafted a new steel-trellis with 1.1 degrees more and .7 inches more trail to steering response and increase

A 1.4-irich-longer swingarm stretches the to 58.1 inches—one inch than the Monster 1100, and 1.8 longer than the 1098 further improve stability and the front wheel down.

The committed riding position is suitable for urban commutes, so been reconfigured to be radically relaxed; there’s actually legroom and a shorter reach to the than on last year’s S4Rs. The seat is more padded, and the forged risers the tapered handlebar are rubber-mounted. A built to coddle?

Who spiked the acqua in Borgo The tank and tail look to those of the Superbike, but are actually to emphasize the compact, cut-down style.

One component not diluted Superbike spec is the engine. of a 1098 top end grafted onto the vacuum …-cast crankcases the 1198, this motor is 7 lighter than that of the and produces a claimed 155 horsepower. just 5 bhp less than the due to necessary intake and exhaust

Cam timing is the same, as are ECU settings the 60mm elliptical throttle

The exhaust system is new, of massive 63mm headers, a electronic exhaust valve and side-mount silencers replacing the underseat setup. The cooling is new too, with two smaller to reduce overall width, and a heat exchanger making up for the radiator capacity.

Ducati offer two Streetfighter versions: a model for $14,995 and an S version for more, upgraded with suspension, forged-aluminum Marchesini carbon-fiber front fender and cam covers, plus Ducati Control (DTC) and Ducati Analyzer (DDA). Despite the DTC/DDA, the S still weighs 4.4 less than the base

We sampled the S model at the exclusive Race Resort, high in the Ber-meja outside of Ronda, Ironic, debuting a motorcycle the Streetfighter at a racetrack, but the impeccably 26-turn circuit was a much more lightly policed—environment to its Superbike-level performance.

But both high-speed and mid-corner are rock-solid on the Streetfighter, even in the 40-mph crosswinds whipping off the that day. Streetfighter resembles a scaled-down Superbike with air ducts in the same and twin running lights mimic the IDSB’s headlights.

the Streetfighter S at Ascari certainly was and the bike circulated better any … upright with the “street” in its name should be to. But the new machine really ought to on the street. In fact, the Streetfighter has the to be Ducati’s most entertaining yet.

There’s no comparison with the Streetfighter is a full 22 Ibs. and 25 bhp stronger than last top-of-the-line, Testastretta-powered S4Rs, and more comfortable too. essentially the same performance as the in a much more accessible and package, there’s no reason to the Superbike unless you’re a fiend.

Of course, there is a The Street-fighter doesn’t snap Ascari’s tourniquet- you push the end harder than you’d on such an upright bike, the limiting factor becomes grip from the street-spec Diablo Corsa III. But if front-end feedback doesn’t that of the Superbike, this bike has enough chassis to actually exploit the added of a DOT race tire.

Having DTC on the Super-bike, it’s interesting to how differently it behaves on the Streetfighter. At its ability to instantly shunt seemed almost detrimental. less forward weight the Streetfighter doesn’t carve a as tenaciously as the Superbike.

The front unloads more easily acceleration, which can cause the to run wide at corner exits. the DTC set on the higher end of its 8-step scale, even the slightest wheelspin is the Street-fighter will hook up and this exact problem—especially in fast corners like the curve onto Ascari’s straight. Better handling when lower DTC settings selected, allowing more while lessening the tendency to and letting the bike follow a line.

it’s worth manipulating the control, since wheelspin—and a near constant with the Streetfighter. Initial throttle can be abrupt, not due to tuning hiccups Marelli ECU performs flawlessly), but the torque hits so hard at very low revs that the lurches forward. Geared to the Superbike, power swells right up to the 10,700-rpm redline, the businesslike rev limiter butts in.

such a quick-revving motor, bump the limiter often if not paying close attention.

And on the Superbike, it’s difficult to the shift light from the DTC lights, especially when accelerating out of a corner, spinning the and nearing redline at the same

Exercising the Streetfighter S at Ascari was entertaining, and the bike circulated than any … upright the word “street” in its name be expected to. But the new machine really to shine on the street. In fact, the has the potential to be Ducati’s most streetbike yet.

There’s no with the Monsters—the Streetfighter is a 22 Ibs. lighter and 25 bhp stronger last year’s top-of-the-line, S4Rs, and it’s more too. With essentially the performance as the 1098 in a much accessible and user-friendly package, no reason to choose the Superbike you’re a track fiend.
