Ducati Rabbit! (AKA Streetfighter haha)

For Ducati/Bike lovers!

Ducati has released Street Fighter! Cool looking bike but somehow I find it looks like a dark-skinned rabbit!

======================(STORY)===================== =
As promised a few days ago, Ducati has officially released photos and specifications for their new 2009 Ducati Streetfighter and Streetfighter S. Powered by the watercooled engine from the 1098, it weighs 368 pounds with 155 horsepower and 87.5 foot pounds of torque. With an upright seating position and the naked, no bodywork look, the streetfighter should attract a lot of Ducati enthusiasts, especially those who want the power of the 1098 but prefer a more street oriented package. Wheelbase is 58.1 inches, rake 25.6 degrees, steering angle 29 degrees.

So what’s special about the Streetfighter “S” model? The standard Streetfighter has Showa suspension front and rear while the S model uses Ohlins suspension pieces and replaces the standard 10 spoke wheels with lighter 5 spoke forged Marchesini wheels. It also includes Ducati Traction Control (DTC), Ducati Data Analysis (DDA) and carbon fiber front fender and cambelt covers.

The look of the new Streetfighter is lean and aggressive and at 368 pounds, 155 horsepower and an upright seating position I imagine the front wheel will get lots of air time. Will the Streetfighter bring in new Ducati buyers or simply shift some from the more track focused 1198? We’ll have to wait and see. The Streetfighter is scheduled for release sometime in the Spring of 2009.
