Filed Under Bikes, Ducati | Comments Off on 2010 Ducati Streetfighter – The First Ride on the Street Bike

Auto, Car, Bikes, 2010 Ducati Streetfighter

First impression counts and if you get to ride on the 2010 Ducati Streetfighter, do not miss the opportunity to try it out. If you think it is just another street bike, you are wrong as you will realize when you try it out. Try it out on the race tracks, on the busy roads, on all kind of terrains. You will get to know that the bike suits most of the conditions. The only limiting factor is the base height, else it would have been an all terrain bike.

At the heart of the Streetfighter is Ducati’s 1099cc L-Twin engine that is liquid-cooled. This is the same that was used in the 2008 Ducati 1098 Superbike. The Streetfighter has a new vacuum die-cast that was first introduced on the 2008 Ducati 848. The die cast allows for a lighter crankcase without compensating on its strength.

The cylinders are the same as the ones in the 1098: 104 x 64.7mm bore/stroke. The 2010 Ducati street fighter cylinder head employs four 42mm intake valves. It also includes four 34mm exhaust valves controlled by Ducati’s patented Desmodromic valve actuation system.
