Ducati Streetfighter V4 S [2020] | First Ride VIDEO REVIEW

We got the chance to stretch the legs of the Ducati Streetfighter V4 S just before the formal Stay At Home order was issued... but we made the most of it!

It’s perhaps fitting that one of the more dramatic motorcycles of the year has been launched amid a very dramatic time.

Indeed, we were originally booked to travel to Spain to give the eagerly anticipated Ducati Streetfighter V4 S a throttle-pinned blast around the Ascari Circuit, but the onset of the coronavirus means that was cancelled and alternative plans made.

As such, we took delivery of the first Streetfighter V4 S to land in the UK on Monday to go solo, but in what turned out to be both a combination of good timing and bad timing, we prioritised riding it for the limited amount of time we had.

Indeed, the Ducati Streetfighter V4 S is certainly quick but it wasn’t fast enough to out-run the sweeping change in restrictions on movement and social interaction in UK, which is why you’ll need to excuse us to work with what we had, which in this case was a residential street for our backdrop rather than the leafy countryside as planned. After all, we were asked to Stay At Home.

Nonetheless, the changes to our working practices did mercifully come just after we’d had a good chance to really stretch the legs privately along the back roads of the Midlands and find out whether the naked switch-up of the Panigale is worth what feels like a long wait.

Anyway, enough about us… more about what you really want to see. Check out the 2020 Ducati Streetfighter V4 S (Stay At Home) full REVIEW HERE or watch our video review below...
