Ducati unveils Streetfighter

Ducati is about to release a new naked performance bike, but it's not a Monster. The Italian motorcycle manufacturer has decided that all Monsters should be air-cooled, and so its liquid-cooled naked bikes will carry a new name. The 1099cc V-Twin engine comes from the firm's superbike range and pumps out 155 horsepower and 87.5 lb-ft of torque. That's plenty of arm-stretching power for a naked bike, and we're sure the Streetfighter will be quite the hooligan machine. This new platform has much more angular and menacing looks than its little Monster brother and carries the stacked exhaust cans from high-spec versions of the previous-gen Monster.

The S model gets the expected Öhlins suspension upgrades along with Marchesini forged aluminum wheels and sport tires; bronze-painted frame, wheels and swingarm; carbon fiber bits plus electronic goodies like standard traction control and data acquisition. Ducati's got a short teaser on its home page and reveals that all the goods will be available shortly. Expect the price to fall in the mid-teens and the waiting list to start at your local Ducati dealership.

Looks like a bug in many ways.

Looks like it was a wise decision to roll this out. The Streetfighter just received three different awards for 2009.
