Ducati’s new superbike is turning heads for all the right reasons. It was launched at the EICMA last year in November. The bike is designed to bridge the gap between both functionality and design. As opposed to other superbikes that are uncomfortable for long rides, this new Ducati SuperSport is perfect for everyday riding. The Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down also comes as standard. So be it winding roads or city roads, Ducati SuperSport S can ride through it all.
The ergonomics of this bike fits a range of uses from daily traffic to long rides, thanks to its comfortable seating and handle design. To enhance the comfort of the riding position, the company has moved the footpegs and swapped for a set of high clip-on(s), a very smart move in my opinion. Along with that Ducati has also added an adjustable windscreen to ward off the wind.
The bike also has various riding modes available, along with both traction control and ABS.
The SuperSport S is available in two color options as of now, which is the Ducati Red and Star White Silk. If you’re in a mood to customize your SuperSport S, the company lets you do that too! You can also buy a whole range of accessories depending on your need.
For instance, if you opt for the sports pack, then your bike will come with a carbon front mudguard, a racing lever kit, carbon fuel tank cover and billet aluminum covers for the front and rear brake reservoirs. While the touring pack contains heated grips, a pair of semi-rigid side panniers, and a much larger windscreen for touring.
The bike uses the 937 cc Testastretta motor from the Hypermotard 939 in a rather relaxed sportbike trellis frame. The company decided to also lower the rev range power and ensured that longer final drive gear ratios were possible. The bike currently has a Brembo braking system with dual 320 mm discs up front. It also has a very cool under seat waterproof USB outlet and a LED daytime running light.
Sports enthusiasts will be particularly impressed with this one. Why? Because it is designed for maximum sports performance!
