Bull fighter: Ducati pay homage to the Lamborghini Huracán STO with special edition Streetfighter V4

1 of 9

Meet the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini: A carbon-clad, limited-run version of Bologna’s bonkers 1103cc four-cylinder super naked, and the firm’s second collaboration with the Italian supercar company.

Limited to 630 numbered units, plus a further 63 extra-special versions exclusively for Lamborghini customers, the special Streetfighter V4 S pays tribute to the 631bhp Huracán STO and features lashings of carbon fibre, gentle bodywork tweaks to reflect the car’s styling, and a paint job that’s sure to divide opinion.

The new bike is built on the technical base of the 2023 Panigale V4 S superbike, which has been updated for the new year with engine braking control changes, plus greater quickshifter and traction control refinement.

Set to be delivered to customers in April 2023, the Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini has received a number of styling changes over the standard £21,495 Streetfighter V4 S it’s based on. This includes a new set of forged wheels to mimic those of the Huracán, plus a single titanium locking nut at the rear – again with a Lamborghini design.

It doesn’t stop there either, with the carbon fibre front mudguard, tank cover, belly pan, and tail all gently altered to mimic the look of the circa £260,000 car. Even the single rider’s seat has now been finished in such a way to match the interior.

Away from the styling, the Lamborghini special gets billet aluminium adjustable foot pegs, plus lightened levers. The heel guards, rear seat pad, TFT dash cover, ignition switch cover, and rear sprocket protector are also all made of the same carbon fibre as the altered bodywork.

This is then finished off with a neat underslung titanium Akrapovič exhaust silencer, complete with an end cap made with – you guessed it – carbon fibre.

Marking these specials out as genuine will be a metal plate mounted in the central tank cover, which will contain the model name and serial number. This number will also be machined into an aluminium insert on the key fob, as well as appearing on the colour TFT dash during the start procedure.

If that’s not exclusive enough for you though, Ducati are holding back a further 63 bikes exclusively for Lamborghini customers. Known as Speciale Clienti editions, owners will have the option to configure their bikes with body colours and rims exactly like their car. Colour options will also be available for the Brembo brake calipers and seat.

Track-focussed accessories will also be available to all customers, plus the option to buy a limited-edition helmet, jacket, and leathers in the colour of the bike.

With so many people’s budgets so stretched in the current climate, you might be thinking a bike like this is incredibly out of touch. However, when Ducati revealed the Siàn-inspired Diavel 1260 Lamborghini back in 2021, it sold out in just a few days. We’d expect this model’s sales to follow suit.
