In terms of strengths, the Streetfighter V4 S is the most powerful naked bike ever produced by Ducati and has good ergonomics, superb electronically adjustable Öhlins suspension, brute Brembo Stylema brakes, a full electronics package, and a handsome, distinctive look.

Ducati Streetfighter V4 S 2021

Ducati Streetfighter V4 S 2021

The problem of the Streetfighter V4 S with Euro4 engine, namely no power in the lower rev range but explosion in the upper rev range, has been largely rectified with the update to Euro5. Although the disgusting 208 hp are still only available at 13,000 rpm, the SF V4 S now also works acceptably at lower revs. The electronic Öhlins suspension is at its best and the brute Brembo Stylema stoppers again celebrate the penchant for the racetrack. Ergonomics and handling are also basically good, but on the racetrack you would wish for lower handlebars because of the awesome power. A perfect poser bike that also works on the country road, and on the racetrack anyway. Only the too-loud sound should be curbed a little.

Ducati Panigale V4 2020

Ducati Panigale V4 2020

The conclusion is very easy for me. Ducati has made an "already almost perfect motorbike" even better without changing anything in a negative way. Although riding on the road with this radical fairing probably causes a stir and one or two riders find it uncomfortable, they obviously feel more comfortable with it on the race track. You get a motorbike "out of the box" that resembles a Superbike World Championship bike more than ever. I also believe that the V4 2018 owner is quite capable of improving his lap times with the 2020 version. My tip: if you take care to enlarge the tank or make it more grippy, you could go over the centre even more with your hull.

Clever electronics

Noticeable upgrade to last year's model

More accessible than ever before

Tank is too small from an ergonomic point of view

straight-line driving from 250km/h in the wet
