The Limited Edition Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini

As both Italian companies are ultimately owned by the Volkswagen group, it’s not surprising to see the new limited edition Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini unveiled. A couple of years ago we saw the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini inspired by the Sian FKP 37 hypercar and the founding date of the Italian supercar company. And now comes the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini, built on the technical base of the 2023 Panigale V4 S.

In both cases, you’ll get the 1,103cc Desmosedici Stradale engine putting out 208 horesepower, and with a dry clutch. It’s uses as a stressed element in the almunium front frame, with bodywork redesigned with inspiration from the Huracan STO. So you get details like a mudguard inspired by the integrated air vents on the car, and extractors on the belly pan to follow the design of the cooling intakes on the rear brakes of the Huracan. The supercar bonnest has also inspired the extractors on the single-seat tail unit, while the front bumper vents are echoed on the tank of the motorcycle, and all of it comes in carbon using the same texture as you’d see on a Lamborghini.

But you also get a host of other trick components including adjustable rider foot pegs and lightened brake and cluch levevers in billet aluminium from a collaboration with Rizoma. And you also get carbon heel guards, saddle pad, dashboard cover, ignition switch cover and sprocket protection. And carbon fibre also appears for the heat protection, headlight support, rear mudgard and the rear subframe guards.

As you’d expect, some top brands have been tapped up for parts including the Akrapovic titanium exhaust silencer with carbon fibre end cap, the Ohlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active suspension, and the Brembo brakes with Stylema calipers and 330mm discs. You also get a selection of bits to help prepare for track days including an open carbon fibre cover for the dry clutch and caps for removing the numberplate and mirrors, along with the racing fuel cap.

All of this means you get a kerb weight of 197.5kg for the new limited edition Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini. All the normal 630 examples will be created in a Verde Citrea/Arancio Dac colour combination to match a Huracan STO with Arancio Dac Brembo wings and brake calpiers, and black Ohlins stays and fork legs. But if you’re a Lamborghini Huracan STO owner, you can order a bike with the body, wheels, brake calipers and saddle details to match your car as closely as possible.

And if you really want to co-ordinate your look, there’s also a matching limited edition helmet, along with learthers and a jacket. Plus, along with the numbered metal plate on the central tank cover, you’ll also get a special animation on the TFT dashboard when you turn on the ignition.

Obviously, the new Limited Edition Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini isn’t going to be cheap. But considering the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini was apparently sold out in just a few days, and ten times as many Streetfighter V4s are being produced, obviously it’s a decent source of revenue for the firm. Which hopefully gets ploughed into their more affordable bikes, along with the high end numbered collectables.

Deliveries of the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini begin in April 2023. While you’re waiting, why not check out all our coverage of new, custom and classic Ducati motorcycles. Or see if any of the Ducati Streetfighter V4s currently advertised on eBay will tide you over until next year.

‘New’ Ducati Supermono Goes Up For Auction

Here’s a bike you won’t see offered for sale very often, as a ‘new’ Ducati Supermono goes up for auction at the H&H Classics bike sale at the National Motorcycle Museum on Wednesday, 20th July, 2022. It’s been built from new old stock, and the replica/continuation has been built by supermono expert Alistair Wager.

The Ducati Supermono has styling designed by Pierre Terblanche and other parts created by Claudio Domenicalli and Massimo Bordi, including the 550cc four stroke desmodromic single cylinder engine which used a dummy connecting rod to act like a second piston and create a balance similar to a V-twin more usually identified with the Italian motorcycle manufacturer.

Designed to compete in the Sound of Singles class and also featured as a supporting series for World Superbikes from 1994 until 1997, just 40 bikes were built in 1993, with a larger 572cc engine being used for a futher run of 27 constructed in 1995. Built for handling and a light weight, carbon fibre bodywork and parts were complimented by magnesium for the case covers, chain adjustment covers and triple clamps.

This 'new' Ducati Supermono goes up for auction in July 2022Allen Millyard 1976 Kawasaki KH500 “KH Five”, along with a hose of classics including Vincent Black Shadows and Rapides, a 1975 MV Agusta America, a 1973 Triumph X75 Hurricane, and the unusual 2017 Avinton Collector GT, along with a lot of other more affordable bikes, including many with no reserve price (for example, a 1994 MZ Skorpian Sports or a 1993 Ducati 900SS). You can see everything on offer on the H&H Classics site, here, along with bidding details and information if you want to attend.

Unique Factory Custom Ducati Unica Program Launches

The new factory custom Ducati Unica program takes building your dream motorcycle to a new level with as you’ll be collaborating directly with the company to create something unique.

This means you’ll be able to collaborate directly with Ducati designers and technicians to go through every stage of the customisation process including exotic materials, special exclusive colours and finishes, and your choice of Ducati Performance accessories. After deciding on the specification at Centro Stile Ducati, you’ll then be able to come back regularly to see the progress of your bike being created. And each machine from the Ducati Unica program comes with a certificate of uniqueness.

An ‘extremely limited number of requests’ for the Ducati Unica project will be accepted next year, and the odds are it won’t be cheap. And your choices will need to be ‘in compliance with the stylistic criteria that identify a real Ducati’, so you probably won’t be allowed to choose particularly extreme examples of customisation. But along with the fact you’ll own something completely bespoke from the Bologna factory, it’s probably also going to be a more worthwhile investment than just adding some anodised levers and wheel rim tape.

You’ll be able to get more information on the Ducati Unica program from dealers worldwide, and there’s probably going to be plenty of interest in being able to visit Italy to work with the designers and technicians, and be involved with the manufacturer from the first sketches to the final delivery ceremony.

Given the fact that most motorcyclists will invest in tweaking and change their bikes to the way they want, it makes sense for Ducati to offer the option for a special service to those with the right combination of vision and money. And it’s probably not going to impact the demand for custom bike builders to create more extreme machines. But if it’s successful, you can imagine Ducati or other manufacturers expanding the options to create unique motorcycles direct from the production lines in the future, which will open up the possibilities.
