Ducati channels the Huracán STO into the Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini

When the Italians come together, great things happen

The Ducati Streetfighter V4 needs no introduction given that its reputation as an unhinged, maniacal monster precedes itself. It is a true hyper-naked motorcycle in its form and aggression—as a Panigale V4 deprived of its fairings should be.

As if a standard SFV4 wasn’t bonkers enough, Ducati has decided to draw inspiration from the equally insane Lamborghini Huracán STO in order to create this limited-edition Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini. A likely and obvious pairing as both brands have a penchant for excess and flamboyance, both hail from Italy, and are owned by the Volkswagen Group.

The bright and highly metallic shade of green that covers most of the panels on this bike is Lamborgini’s Verde Citrea, while the red accents and decals are finished in the raging bull brand’s Arancio Dac. Carbon fiber is used liberally all throughout this model, making the SFV4 Lamborghini 2kg lighter than the standard version.

The 1,103cc Desmosedici Stradale V4 engine is retained for this special edition, and is still punching out a fire-breathing 208hp. An open carbon-fiber clutch cover was added for a dollop of extra flair. The suspension has been upgraded to an Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active system from the Showa and Sachs combo seen on the normal Streetfighter V4.

Aerodynamic vents and grilles on the front mudguard, tank fairings, belly pan, and tail are copied directly from various parts of the Huracán STO, and are functionally repurposed for the bike. The look is completed by a set of wheels styled after those on the car.

Ducati will limit the production of these naked green-and-red beasts to 630 units. However, another 63 units on top of the 630 will be sold under the Speciale Clienti Series. To qualify as a special client worthy of purchasing one of the extra 63 units, one must currently own a Huracán STO, and his or her Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini will be built with the exact same body color and wheels as the car.

Finally, an exclusive line of gear that includes a helmet, a jacket, and leather overalls finished in the same green and red hues were launched alongside the bike for owners who want to kit themselves out to match their new motorcycle.

As for the price, Ducati has not published an official SRP for this exquisite machine. But we reckon it’s safe to assume that there would be a significant price hike over the standard Streetfighter.
