Ducati has unveiled the first of a new series of special edition models for 2023. It’s called the Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini Edition, and it just might be one of the more inspired designs to come out of the Italian motorcycle brand.
If you haven’t already guessed, the new special edition is made in collaboration with Lamborghini and the Huracan STO. Both companies are eager partners, with both being owned by Audi, located in Italy, and situated less than 30 kilometers away from each other in what’s known as Italy’s Motor Valley.
The first joint project from the two companies came three years ago in the form of the Ducati-Lamborghini Diavel 1260, which sold out in a matter of weeks. Both brands hope this new model could emulate the first’s success.
There will only be 630 numbered models of this special Streetfighter V4, plus 63 other units, as a celebration of Ducati-Lenovo factory team rider Francesco Bagnaia, who carries the racing number 63. Ducati is applying what it calls Speciale Clienti, which means interested customers can customize their own models from top to bottom.
As for its design, it’s clearly inspired by the latest Huracan STO, which features a Verde Citrea metallic green with Arancio Dac orange. All models feature a large number 63 painted at the side of the fuel tank.
Other than that, the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini Edition remains mechanically unchanged. It’s still powered by a 1,103cc 90-degree V-4 engine that delivers 208 hp at 13,000 RPM and 123 Nm of torque at 9,500 RPM. It also features a special Akrapovic exhaust system, an Ohlins semi-active suspension, and Brembo Stylema brake calipers.
While this new special edition has yet to be seen on Philippine soil, the regular Ducati Streetfighter V4 is still available in the country. It retails starting at P1,610,000.
