An Italian Automobile major has said that Ducati is preparing for the Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb which is also known by the name of the Race to the Clouds, on the Streetfighter V4 prototype. The Streetfighter V4 is the first naked motorcycle from Ducati to get a V4 engine. Right now, no specifications of the motorcycle are out other than that it is being equipped with a 1100cc Desmosedici engine.
Carlin Dunne, who was the winner of 2018 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) is going to pilot the prototype in racing the clouds. The official launch of the Ducati Streetfighter V4 is decided for the year 2020. Ducati Panigale has released a statement in which it said that “The bike gets an Akrapovic exhaust system and slick tyres. The subframe and the fuel tank would look familiar as they have been borrowed from its fully-faired sibling. The engine is a stressed member in the Streetfighter V4 and it also offers the upright riding posture which is all thanks to the wide and flat handlebar.
The Streetfighter will be launched in the year 2020 and will come to India in the second half of the year. Claudio Domenicali, the CEO of Ducati has said that the Streetfighter V4 will be one of the stars of the Ducati World Premiere 2020. The bike will be presented to the public at EICMA 2019.
