Streetfighter V2 | Electronics

Latest-generation electronics

The modern equipment of pilot assistance controls that equips the Streetfighter V2 is inherited from the Panigale V2. Thanks to the use of the 6-axis inertial platform that instantly detects the angle of roll, yaw and pitch, all controls intervene accurately according to the position of the motion in space. The operating parameters of each control are associated by default with the three Riding Mode (Sport, Road, Wet). The rider is given the ability to customize the level of intervention of the controls or restore the default parameters set by Ducati. The IMU works on 6 axis by measuring the position of the bike in space in real time and sending the information to the control units that manage the electronic controls. All this in order to ensure maximum performance and safety.

The operating parameters of each control are associated by default with the 3 Riding Modes (Sport, Road, Wet).

ABS Cornering EVO

The ABS system, available as standard, can be set at three different levels to fully meet the needs of all riders, on racetrack or road. 

At levels 2 and 3, the ABS system features the Cornering function, which sees the ABS activated even with the bike on an angle, preventing a low side crash. 

Level 3 is recommended for road riding or where there is poor grip; it guarantees safe and stable braking and keeps rear wheel lift under control during aggressive deceleration thanks to the Cornering function. 

Level 2 is dedicated to amateur riders enjoying road adventures or track days. The system controls both the rear and front braking systems and keeps the cornering function on, but disables lift-up control to allow harder, sportier braking. In selecting Level 2, the “slide by brake” function is activated, allowing the rider to drift into the turns.

Level 1 is not the default setting on any Riding Mode: it is recommended for on-track use by expert riders. It ensures racing-standard ABS intervention at the front wheel only. To maximise performance, both the cornering and anti-lift functions are disabled.

Ducati Traction Control EVO 2

The Streetfighter V2 is equipped with the MotoGP-derived DTC EVO 2 traction control system, which is managed by the 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and adapts intervention based on lean angle. The system offers maximum performance and safety on both racetrack and road. The predictive strategy allows not only for a “cut” in power delivery after slippage, but also predicts its start, for more linear and homogeneous control. All this on the track obviously means more effective riding and better lap times. In addition, the DTC EVO 2 on the Streetfighter V2 further boosts sports road riding, and also means a greater level of safety and acceleration control, whatever the asphalt condition.

As well as controlling spark advance and injection, the DTC EVO 2 system uses the throttle body valves to maintain optimal combustion parameters and guarantee a smoother engine response and control in all situations that do not call for rapid intervention. DTC EVO 2 can be set to 8 different levels (6 for dry conditions, 2 for wet), letting the rider adapt the control strategy to suit their individual riding style and the grip conditions in order to maximise performance.

Ducati Wheelie Control EVO

The Streetfighter V2 is equipped with the latest version of Ducati Wheelie Control EVO. Using the data feed from the 6D IMU, this system keeps wheelies under control while maximising acceleration easily and safely. DWC EVO provides more accurate wheelie readings, meaning more precise control to ensure the bike responds faster to rider input.

Ducati Quick Shift up/down EVO 2

DQS EVO 2 with up/down function, developed for the Streetfighter V2, exploits lean angle data to maximise bike stability when shifting gears through the corners. In addition to minimising shift times, DQS EVO 2 allows for clutch-less downshifting, making hard braking more effective than ever. The extent and duration of system operations are designed to ensure seamless shifting even during extreme track sessions; when downshifting, the system works in combination with the anti-hopping clutch and Engine Brake Control (EBC). 

Engine Brake Control EVO

The Engine Brake Control was developed to help the rider optimise bike stability in extreme turn-in conditions, by balancing the forces applied to the rear tyre in cases of severe engine braking. The Streetfighter V2 EBC EVO system, optimised according to lean angle, monitors the throttle body valve position, selected gear and crankshaft deceleration during aggressive braking and adjusts throttle aperture to balance out the torque forces applied to the tyre.

Headlights and indicators

The front light unit features an extremely compact headlight, thanks to the adoption of two dual-function LED modules for low beam and high beam. The Daytime Running Light and the upper thread of the double headlamp make for a frowning look, the modern hallmark of Ducati sports bikes. At the rear, the full LED light is functionally divided into two parts, in line with Ducati sports bike tradition (specifications may vary market by market). 

In case of any violent braking, the Ducati Brake Light (DBL) system automatically activates a flashing of the rear light, signalling the sudden deceleration to any vehicles following behind and contributing to the active safety of the vehicle. The double red arc of the positioning light ensures the Streetfighter V2 is unmistakable, as does its aggressive expression. Rounding out the lighting system are LED front and rear turn signals. 

Ducati Multimedia System

The Streetfighter V2 is predisposed for the use of the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS), with which the rider can accept incoming calls, select and listen to a song, and receive SMS notifications via Bluetooth technology. When the rider hops on the bike, the smartphone automatically connects to the bike via Bluetooth, allowing the user to manage the main multimedia functions. The track of the song being played, the icon indicating an incoming SMS, or the name of the caller is displayed on the TFT display. Call audio and music are transmitted to the rider’s helmet earphones. The DMS is available as a Ducati Performance plug and play accessory.

Riding Modes

Ducati Riding Modes allow riders to select among 3 different pre-set riding options, Wet, Road and Sport, which optimise motorcycle behaviour to suit both individual riding style and the road conditions. Each Riding Mode is associated with a different setting of the control parameters. By selecting the different options, the user can instantaneously switch the character of the engine and the electronic  

Wet Riding Mode

Wet Mode was developed to get the most from low-grip surfaces. The rider benefits from the full power of the Superquadro engine (153 hp), including a particularly progressive and manageable delivery. The pre-set level of electronic controls is set to offer maximum safety, intervening in particular on Ducati Traction Control and Ducati Wheelie Control, to ensure excellent grip and stability.

Road Riding Mode

The rider can count on 153 hp and a more responsive engine. The electronic controls are calibrated to better manage the performance of the bike when riding on dry road surfaces. By selecting Road Riding Mode, the rear wheel-lift control is activated during braking and the Cornering ABS EVO function is set to offer maximum cornering performance.

Sport Riding Mode

Sport Riding Mode is the most suitable for sports-oriented adventures, on both road and racetrack. This option allows the rider to count on the full performance of the Superquadro engine, exploited with a Ride by Wire calibration that provides for an instant, precise response from the engine. The electronic controls are set to be as unaggressive as possible without compromising safety. Level 2 ABS eliminates lift-up control and activates the “slide by brake” function, the controlled drift under braking that allows the rider to safely slide the bike when entering the corner.
