Roadster: Ducati Streetfighter S

  • Arthur Coldwells

With its naked design, the Streetfighter S lacks the refined look of Ducati’s 1098 Superbike. But contrary to its city-brawler appearance, the new machine is a smooth sophisticate. Stellar fuel mapping and Ducati Traction Control seamlessly tame the 155 hp that the Streetfighter’s liquid-cooled 1098 Testastretta L-twin motor produces.

The bike, which went on sale in May for just under $19,000, is also equipped with Öhlins suspension in the front and rear and a full Brembo monobloc radial braking system.

The Streetfighter’s upright seating position provides relief for the wrists, which do not have to bear the brunt of the rider’s weight, while lowered foot pegs allow taller riders some legroom. This stable position—along with a 25.6-degree rake (compared with 24.5 degrees on the 1098) and a slightly longer swing arm (35 mm longer than the 1098’s)—helps give riders the confidence to explore the Streetfighter’s ample capabilities.
