Ducati Streetfighter, 1099 CCs of Naked Monster Killer

Hey guys,stop here for a second.Ducati has revealed a new bike in Milan for the first time and proved once again that they can do naked bikes well. The Ducati Streetfighter somehow manages to keep looking lightning fast, despite the menacing road warrior aesthetic. The powerplant is a 1099cc V-Twin engine that produces 155 horsepower and 87.5 lb-ft of torque.

If you really want to splash out (you certainly don’t need to as this thing looks great as is), it is also going to come in an S variant that packs in Öhlins upgrades, Marchesini Forged Aluminum wheels, a bronze painted frame, and a few carbon fiber components.

Video after the jump.
The video isn’t much, but you do get to see the bike from a few different angles and get a better idea of what it looks like up close.
