Okay, so my first review of the original Streetfighter V4 was curtailed by the incoming COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. The bike was literally whisked away from me as the lockdown was announced. During that time I crammed in as many road miles as I could and came to the conclusion that the Streetfighter is almost too fast for the road. I also got the impression that it felt just like a Panigale, sans fairing and clip-ons. I’m still agreeing with that on one point, the Streetfighter is a devastatingly quick motorcycle, that needs a very skilled rider to get the most of it on the road. On the track though, it’s a very different story.

Out on the track it offers owners a very different riding experience to that found on the Panigale. It has a whole different bag of tricks and characteristics up its sleeve and requires a different approach when you ride it. It does also offer a slightly more cost-effective and comfortable route into ‘Panigale’ ownership – up to motorway speeds anyway!
