Reading is overrated.

Writing about Ducati’s 2023 Streetfighter V4S is nice and all, but while at the Andalucia racetrack riding the bike, I also attached a GoPro to my helmet and spun some laps. This happened for a few reasons: first was so you, the viewer, could hear the amazing roar of an 1103cc V4 at 13,000-plus rpm. Next was to get an idea of the different challenges the Andalucia track poses. The camera doesn’t quite do it justice, and I never did figure all of them out, but the experience reaffirmed just how remarkable the 2023 Ducati Streetfighter V4S really is.

2023 Ducati Streetfighter V4S Review – First Ride

Motorcycle.com would like to thank Motorcycle Mechanics Institute | MMI for sponsoring this video.

After hopping off the bike and collecting my thoughts, an actual professional camera crew was gracious enough to put me in front of their expensive equipment, attach a lavalier to my collar, and have me attempt to talk about the bike and my experience. So, if you want a raw and unfiltered view of the new Streetfighter V4S after a day of riding at the track, I suggest you watch the video above. Ray Gauger did an excellent job editing this video to make it seem as if I’m talking from a continual stream of consciousness, but behind the scenes, I really had to think about it because there really was a lot to take in – that V4S is capable of so much.
