Ducati Streetfighter V2 Debuts in Storm Green

Ducati took a cue from its own playbook, unveiling a green version of its Streetfighter V2, a naked that has only been offered in red since its release as a 2022 model. This is nothing new for the Borgo Panigale brand, which has released numerous models in green. A few notables are now collectors, such as the Matrix 996 and the Monster 1100 Dieseleditions.
Meet the Streetfighter V2 in Storm Green, a matte metallic green color scheme that changes the tone of Ducati’s mid-level motorcycle. It won’t have the collector value of the bikes listed above, but it surely sticks out among the sea of red the Streetfighter lineup is known for.

Speaking of the color scheme in its press release, Ducati says, “The metallic green color selected by the Centro Stile Ducati enhances the clean, sharp, and essential lines of the Streetfighter V2, reinforcing the unique character of the bike and its innate ability to attract attention. The matte finish is perfectly combined with the chromatic context of the mechanical parts, while the metallic grain creates a very evident play of contrasts on the different surfaces.”

All else is typical Streetfighter V2, which takes the pulsing heart and electronic veins of the Panigale V2 and transplants them into an upright comfortable platform.

Powering the SF V2 is the 955cc Superquadro L-twin, which produces 153 hp at 10,750 rpm and 74.8 pound-feet of torque at 9,000 rpm, basically the same power of the original head- yanking and Streetfighter 1100 with its dry clutch and analog rider systems. For smoother throttle response in town, the Streetfighter V2 has a shorter final ratio of 15/45 versus 15/43 on the Panigale V2.

Unlike the original Streetfighter with its trellis frame, the Streetfighter V2 doesn’t use a trellis frame, or a traditional frame for that matter. The Superquadro is an integral part of the chassis, acting as a stressed member. The “pyramidal” cast aluminum monocoque frame bolts directly to the engine’s cylinder head, creating a rigid chassis.

The rear section is minimal, just enough to support the seat. Unlike the Panigale V2 that uses a traditional dual-sided swingarm, the Streetfighter V2 uses a single-sided swingarm like its older V4 brother that mounts directly to the engine/transmission. For improved handling in the real world, the Streetfighter V2′s swingarm is 16mm longer than the Panigale V2′s, which grows the wheelbase to 57.7 inches. The SF V2 retains the 24 degrees of rake and 3.7 inches of trail, and the seat plants riders 33.3 inches high.

Suspension duties are handled by a 43mm Showa BPF fork and Sachs shock absorber out back. The SF V2 rolls on Pirelli Rosso IV rubber (120/70ZR-17 and 180/60ZR-17), and Brembo M4.32 Monoblock radial calipers squeeze dual 320mm discs up front for stopping power.

Electronics are plentiful, supervised by the six-axis IMU. The package includes ABS Cornering, Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO 2, Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO, Ducati Quick Shift up/down (DQS) EVO 2, and Engine Brake Control (EBC) EVO. The SF V2 arrives with three riding modes (Sport, Road, Wet), full-LED headlights with front DRL, and a 4.3-inch color TFT dashboard.

Ducati says the Storm Green color will be in North American dealerships in August 2022. For additional information, visit Ducati.
