The two luxury automobile brands collaborated back in 2020 to design the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini and have come together once again for a limited edition design inspired by Lamborghini’s own Huracán STO. A perfect combination of technology, performance, and design, the Streetfighter V4 is a motorcycle that  embodies style, sportiness, and exclusivity shared by the two brands.
Huràcan meets Streetfighter 
The Huràcan STO is Lamborghini’s highest-performing model ever, a super sports car created with the sole purpose of offering all the sensations of sports driving, and the technology of a real racing car in a model approved for road use.
Using the technical base of Ducati’s Panigale V4 S ’23, the Streetfighter integrates elements that characterize the DNA of Lamborghini, creating a hyper-exclusive model, inspired heavily by the Huracàn STO. The colours used for the bike are exactly the same as those used for the Huracán STO, a base of “Citrea Green” contrasted by a striking “Dac Orange.”

The company is reportedly going to create only 630 units in this exact specification, each of which will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. As a special deal for Lamborghini’s clientele exclusively,  there will be 63 additional units of the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini Speciale Clienti, where Lamborghini owners will be given the opportunity to customize their bikes with colours matching their cars. Said Lamborghini owners will also have the opportunity to purchase a limited-edition helmet, jacket and leathers to match their new superbike.
Inspired design 
Ducati and Lamborghini have worked closely on the aesthetic of the motorcycle. The front mudguard, tank cover, belly pan, tail section, grille, vents, and air intakes have all been redesigned with inspiration drawn from the Lamborghini Huracan STO.
Carbon fibre is lashed rather heavily on the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini, with the heel guards, rear-seat bodywork, TFT dash cover, ignition-switch cover, rear-sprocket protector and Akrapovič end cap all sporting carbon-fibre construction. The wheels on the superbike are specially forged aluminium wheels which have been designed to look just like the ones found on the Huracan STO.

The Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini is closely linked to the 2023 Panigale V4 S. Powered by a 1103 cc Desmosedici Stradale V4 engine, the Streetfighter has a power output of 208hp, along with the Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active units for suspension, and utilizes a Brembo braking system with Stylema callipers and twin 330 mm discs. The motorcycle also features all of Ducati’s famed electronics including the six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit, Cornering ABS, traction control, wheelie and slide control, cruise control and more.
Each of the 630 examples (plus the extra 63 available through the Speciale Clienti program) will have the bike’s serial number engraved on a metal plate that sits on the tank cover, and each serial number will also come up on the dash when the ignition is turned on. The cost of the new superbike is laid at USD 68,000 for the 630 units, while the more exclusive Lamborghini Speciale Clienti pieces will be priced at USD 83,000.
