STREETFIGHTER V2 | Ergonomics and Vehicle

Ergonomics and Vehicle

Rider-centric ergonomics

Ergonomics has major rider-centric features and is focused on road use with the added values of sportiness and comfort. The high and wide aluminum handlebars replace the handlebar risers of the Panigale V2. The saddle now is longer, wider and has new padding that contributes to make this bike even more comfortable. In addition, the footpegs have been repositioned to increase the amount of room. All these improvements allow the biker great control in sporty riding and facilitate everyday use at the same time. 

Monocoque frame

The Superquadro engine is used as a bearing element connecting the compact front structure, consisting of a monocoque frame in die-cast aluminum fixed to the engine head. The single-sided swingarm, which is also connected to the engine, is 16 mm longer compared to that of the Panigale V2, a winning point which contributes to ensure the stability of the whole bike.

Wheels and Tyres

The Streetfighter V2 is equipped with 5-spoke wheels and the new Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV tyres: 120/70 ZR17 at the front and 180/60 ZR17 at the rear, which provide a super fast response to the rider’s needs together with an extra cornering feeling. Except for the adoption of brake pads characterised by a less aggressive bite, more suitable for road use, the whole braking system is faithfully taken from the Panigale V2 and features Brembo M4-32 monobloc radial calipers with 320 mm diameter discs.

Braking system

The excellence of Ducati braking systems is also maintained in the Streetfighter V2, which is equipped with an entirely radial front system (callipers and pump) with M4.32 monobloc callipers that act on a pair of 320 mm discs. The rear system is also manufactured by Brembo and consists of a calliper with two opposing pistons that acts on a 245 mm diameter disc. The brake pads have a less aggressive bite than on the Panigale V2 to favour their effectiveness in road use. The pads are less aggressive than those on the Panigale V2 to favour their effectiveness in road use.

Suspensions

To this platform are added the 43 mm Showa BPF front fork and the Sachs shock absorber, featuring dedicated calibration to make the bike more comfortable on the road as well as easily adjustable for a whole new dimension of fun on the racetrack.

Ergonomics

In keeping with the Streetfighter’s style, the V2 version is characterised by a riding position that perfectly combines sporty flavour with superior comfort feeling. Compared to the Panigale V2, the torso position results less extreme. Furthermore, the load on the rider’s wrists is less tiring and the footrests have been repositioned, thus offering great control during sporty riding and in everyday use.

The handlebar risers of the Panigale V2 leave room for a high and wide aluminium tubular handlebar. The seat, derived from the Streetfighter V4, is 845 mm high, and compared to that of the Panigale V2 it is longer, wider and has new padding that contributes to make this bike even more comfortable.
