New Ducati Streetfighter V2
on: November 14, 2021, 11:02:25 AM
OK then members. What's your opinion on this little beauty?




Think it's more useable on the road than the V4 version and much more affordable.

My only gripe is that front mudguard/fender. Looks like it's on back to front.

I've never ridden a Ducati before, but I may make an exception in this case.  :169:

No cruise control is a mistake

I think it will be the better bike versus the V4.  If you "need" the power of the V4....you also need to be on a fully faired superbike.  The V2 is the right design for a naked (except that front fender).

OK...there is no doubt that this is a work of art however having owned a V2 Panigale a couple of years back it suffered from extreme heat that became very uncomfortable between the legs. At low speeds it was a pig to ride even after an up map and fitting the infamous Panigale throttle spacers. But if these have been addressed by Ducati then this is a piece of kit and ant an entry point of circa £15 k its gonna attract other naked owners....

Had a good look and sit on it at the show, some areas of it the finish is poor and the riding position is more cramped and the bars lower/further forward than the S1000Rs so it was a fail for me..

So if you read the reviews of the V2 they indicate it has a significant flat-spot in the torque delivery from 4000 to 6000 rpm attributable to Euro 5 emissions.  Same flat spot as reported in the shift-cam RR, and to a lesser extent the single-R, and now also being reported in the new Tuono. Really sad...the V-twin in the Duc should be fabulous in this rpm range.  But nope.  Sound like Euro 5 is evil.  I'm glad I've got the gen 1 single R motor.  It may be the high point for a naked.

Me too, I still still think the gen 1 SkR is the best of the 3, I canít believe BMW managed to sell a bike which is that loud with a standard exhaust system.
