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.
