Ducati reveals Lamborghini Huracan STO-inspired Streetfighter V4
Hyper-exclusive Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini uses technical base of the Panigale V4 S '23 and integrates elements of the Huracan STO.
Ducati has taken the covers off the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini Speciale Clienti, which is a collaboration between the Italian superbike and supercar manufacturers, which are owned by the Volkswagen Group.
The Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini applies the technical base of the Panigale V4 S '23 and integrates elements that characterise the DNA of Lamborghini. The bike, which will be produced in a numbered series limited to 630+63 units, reworks the concepts that gave life to the Lamborghini Huracán STO, the highest-performing model of the Huracan family. The Huracan STO is a super sports car created with the sole purpose of offering all the sensations of sports driving and the technology of a real racing car in a model approved for road use.
Lamborghini-style features have been transferred to the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini, starting with the forged wheels made specifically for this bike with the design of the Huracán STO. The rear rim is enriched by the presence of a single titanium locking nut, also with a Lamborghini design.
Forged wheels made specifically for this hyper Ducati with the design of the Huracan STO.
The Centro Stile Ducati has redesigned the superstructures of this special bike drawing strong inspiration from the Huracan STO: on the front mudguard, tank cover, belly pan and tail, all new components, grille extractors, vents and air intakes have been obtained that explicitly recall those present on the car. The mudguard is inspired by the integrated air vents in the Lamborghini ‘cofango’, the extractors obtained on the belly pan follow the cooling intakes of the rear brakes of the Huracan STO, those present on the side covers of the tank recall the vents on the front fenders of the car while the extractors on the single-seater tail refer to those on the bonnet of the Lamborghini.
A further testimony of the obsessive attention to detail is the fact that all the carbon components (including the front mudguard, belly pan, radiator cover, wings, tank cover and tail) are made using the same texture visible on the supersports cars of the Sant'Agata Bolognese company. The saddle of the motorcycle is also inspired by the finish of the seats of the Huracán STO.
The Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini gets precious components too: adjustable rider footpegs and lightened brake and clutch levers in billet aluminium, and the heel guards, the saddle pad, dashboard cover and ignition switch cover as well as the sprocket protection made of the special carbon fibre used for the bodywork components.
The same carbon fibre is used in parts assigned to heat protection in the covers of the rear head and manifolds of the relative cylinder bank, but also in the headlight support, in the rear mudguard and in the rear subframe guards. The side view of the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini is also enhanced by the Akrapovic exhaust silencer in titanium with carbon fibre end cap.
Extra-special Speciale Clienti
In addition to the 630 Verde Citrea/Arancio Dac units, Ducati is offering an even more exclusive series of 63 bikes called Speciale Clienti, which are only available to 63 Lamborghini customers. These customers, through a direct collaboration with the Centro Stile Ducati, will be able to configure their Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini Speciale Clienti with body colours and wheels exactly like their Lamborghini. It will also be possible to choose the colours of the brake calipers among those included in the palette (Yellow, Red, Black and California Orange, in addition to the standard colour) and the details of the saddle among the four available versions.
The heart of the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini is the 1,103 cc Desmosedici Stradale engine with a power output of 208hp , characterized by a counter-rotating shaft, desmodromic distribution with four valves per cylinder and TwinPulse firing order derived from MotoGP. On the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini the engine is characterised by having a dry clutch, as on the Ducati MotoGP and Superbike.
The aluminium front frame uses the engine as a stressed element. The suspensions are Ohlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active units, while the Brembo braking system relies on Stylema calipers and 330 mm discs. The aerodynamic package, based on carbon biplane wings integrated into the tank side covers, stabilises the bike at high speeds without compromising agility and handling. The kerb weight is 197.5 kg.
The Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini is supplied with a series of accessories that increase its appeal and ease of set-up for track use. They start with the open carbon fibre cover for the dry clutch and continue with the caps for the removal of the number plate and rear-view mirrors, a racing fuel cap and a motorcycle cover in the same colour as the bodywork. The equipment is completed by an aluminium certificate of authenticity, on which the frame and engine numbers are shown, to guarantee the originality of the bike and to further underline its exclusivity.
This unique collaboration is reinforced by the possibility, reserved for Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini owners, to complete the look with a limited edition helmet, jacket and leathers, featuring a colour scheme that echoes that of the motorcycle. Furthermore, for purchasers of the special customer version, the leathers can also be customized in the colours used for the configuration, limited to the choice offered by the Dainese palette.
