Ducati pared down their most powerful production bike, the Paningale V4, to create a seriously badass new prototype. 

The Ducati Streetfighter V4 kept the sportbike's absolutely insane 1,100cc four-cylinder, but lost its fairings got a new set of high-and-wide handlebars to create more aerodynamic profile.

A special "pixelated" livery designed by Centro Stile Ducati continues the aggro styling. 

Ahead of its official unveiling at the 2022 EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan, Ducati team rider Carlin Dunne will compete for his fifth Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb title on the Streetfighter V4 in Colorado Springs.

Ducati didn't reveal the engine's exact output. We know that the Paningale's class-leading V4 cranks out 214 horsepower, but CNET's Road Show predicts that some of the top-end might be sacrificed in favor of mid-range performance that's better suited to "The Race to the Clouds."

The most exciting part is that Ducati obsessives will soon be able to own one of these beauties. The Streetfighter V4 is going into production, with the first models slated to hit dealers in spring of 2020.
