Ducati will give its Streetfighter V4 S a new colour scheme in 2021, called Dark Stealth.
The new colour will join the familiar Ducati Red the Italian bikemaker's steeds are donned in. In addition, the Streetfighter V4 range is now Euro 5 compliant in countries where it's sold, including South Africa.
Dark Stealth is a matt black colour that represents the perfect chromatic choice to show the aggressive side of the ultra-naked Ducati.

153kW of power
The 2021 bike maintains maximum power and torque values but has been repositioned at different engine speeds. The Streetfighter V4 Euro 5 has a power output of 153kW at 13 000rpm (250rpm higher than the EURO 4 version) and a torque of 123Nm at 9500 rpm (2000rpm lower than the EURO 4 version). These values, obtained thanks to a new calibration and the new exhaust, make the bike even more enjoyable on winding roads, says Ducati.
The Streetfighter is the result of the 'Fight Formula': the Panigale V4 stripped of the fairings, with a high and wide handlebar, 178kg on the scale, and powered by a 1100cc engine.
The entire Streetfighter V4 range for 2021, including the Dark Stealth colour scheme for the 'S' version, can already be ordered in Ducati dealers, with the 'Dark Stealth' version available before the end of 2020. Details on the bike's South African arrival will become known closer to the time.
The 2020 Ducati Streetfighter V4 S retails for R359 900 in South Africa.
