I f you're not into reading concise, in-depth road tests, I'll save you the time. The Ducati Streetfighter V4 S is one of the great motorcycles of our time. The thing is so fast, so comfortable, with such street presence, you should feel sorry for much (not all) of the competition. And if you don't mind parting with $24K to have one in your garage, you really should. However, if you want a little more thought put into the test, read on.

At a glance, we've had the plainly moronic acceleration offered by the new supercharged Kawasaki Z H2; a revised and refreshed KTM 1290 Super Duke R; a facelift for the Kawasaki Z900, and a personal favorite in the sensational KTM 890 Duke R.
