New Ducati on the scene it seems. I don't know whether to classify it as "new" or not since Ducati already has the Monster series but the "Streetfighter" sure is interesting.
.... Yes it is, especially from thisview. Single sided swing arm, dual wrapped mufflers and the front rotors areenormous .... they mustuse a right angle valve stem to add air .... very nice bike!

The pinnacle of two-wheeled achievment...I've always wanted to have one, but with the size of my feet and legs, it'd be quite uncomfortable for me...size 14's and 21 inch calves just don't allow for comfortable sitting...not to mention the lack of confident control of the machine.
Bummer.

Really like the Monsters and Ducati's in general, but this has what appear to be HUGE mirrors, and does strike a close resemblance to the b-king. Pretty fugly (which is generally blasphemy when directed towards a ducati) but this thing ain't doing it for me. There is a reason they put farings on sportbikes
