Ducati Riding Experience Is Coming To America

Ducati's Streetfighter V4 is meant to be, in all ways, a shot across the bow of Aprilia, which has long been the only player in the V4 hyper-naked bike segment. The Tuono is a wild machine but one that's surprisingly easy to ride, while Ducati's Streetfighter prototype seems like it might be anything but, at least in prototype form.

While the rider-friendliness of the Streetfighter has yet to be established, one thing is extremely clear from the video of the Streetfighter testing that Ducati released on Thursday ahead of its assault on Pikes Peak -- it's fast. Really, really fast.

Ducati's Streetfighter V4 prototype looks like it wants to steal your lunch money The new hypernaked bike from Ducati is looking to take a big bite out of the Aprilia Tuono's lunch once it debuts at Pikes Peak.

We don't know a ton about the Streetfighter yet, apart from the fact that it's based directly on the completely batty V4 Panigale superbike, only with less bodywork and naked bike-specific aero. We imagine that the Streetfighter might give up a few of the superbike's 215 horsepower up top for a fatter midrange, as is common with this style of motorcycle, but that's just speculation at this point.

This prototype of Ducati's forthcoming Streetfighter V4 will make its public debut at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

What we do know for sure is that the Streetfighter's attempt at setting a speed record during the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is going to be loud and scary, and that's why I'm going to Colorado to check it out in person.

Trademark Hints At Future Harley Bareknuckle Streetfighter Looks like there's a H-D streetfighter coming. Oh! It’s been a while since we’ve had a trademark to chew on and to spin off a few more and less silly theories from. This time, instead of yet another Indian trademark, we’re treated to a Harley-Davidson one. This one could hint at one of the brand’s promised upcoming models.
