That is where my money is, would love to see them do a new 848 from the Panigale V2 955cc engine!
yes for sure retuned, but seems to make sense as they did with the original streetfighter 848 take a midrange superbike and tune it and but it in a naked chassis!I'm going to vote no on this one. However, I like the idea but a smaller displacement V2 Panigale Streetfighter would need to have some engine changes to give it good midrange torque. If that could be done then I vote yes.

I wish they did a lower cc model around 15k. I love my 848 and the only thing I wish it had was the newer technology. The 1k+ cc bikes are too much for my riding style. I'm already holding on for dear life when I ring out the throttle. I can't imagine the type of wind blasting experience on the V4.
Does anyone know of they made any changes to the clunky gearbox? Is the clutch LIGHTER? Are you able to ride it below 20mph without being a professional bull rider?
Have you ridden the bike? If not how would you know anything about how nimble it is or how smooth the fueling is? I think you're getting ahead of yourself here... I dont think any of us can say these things until we get a chance to ride the bike.I don’t see it happening anytime soon. The SF848 was developed to address many of the issues that the SF1098 had. The SF1098 is a lot of bike in a naked package with geometry and fueling that requires sorting.
The new V4SF has nimble geometry, a stable chassis, smooth power delivery, and a full electronics suite. The bike is purposed for both street and track riding, and can be further tailored to suit your exact needs.
I would love to add a SF V4s to the garage but the price of them is just getting out of hand. Add doing hat I have done to my SFS so far and it gets too out of hand.V4 SF Superleggera would be very tempting. But buying a base or S model to replace all its steel bolts with the titanium or aluminum ones, or plastic parts to CF, is not something I want to do again. It took a lot of efforts to customize my SF1098 to be close enough to what I would like it to be. And then.... the 848/1098 are now becoming the "classic Ducatis". I love it!
IMHO, (and this is a full opinion piece, here I go) All streetfighters should be V2's of well under 1000ccs. The 848 might just well be the perfect SF. I don't think it needs to be a 955, but it could be ok. The new V4 is borderline ridiculous. The thing that makes it ridiculous is 200hp in an unfaired package.The new V4SF has nimble geometry, a stable chassis, smooth power delivery, and a full electronics suite.
