Ducati is about to launch its new SuperSport sport tourer at Intermot.
The bike is powered by the firm’s 937cc Testastretta motor and kicks out 115bhp and 96.7Nm of torque @ 6,500rpm (80% of the total torque is available at a low 3,000rpm). Compression is at 12.6:1
The SuperSport weighs in at 210kg and is highly specced with Ohlins suspension at both ends on the S version (48mm forks( and Ducati’s quick shift up/down system as standard (the gear change tweak will be an after market option on the standard SuperSport model).
The bike gets full ride-by-wire with the Ducati Safety Pack, full Bosch 9MP ABS braking and Ducati’s traction control brains as standard.
There are three riding modes: Sport (115bhp, quickshifter on, lesser traction control on setting 3), Touring (115bhp, softer throttle action, traction control on setting 4 and quickshifter on) and Urban (75bhp, progressive throttle action, traction control on level 6 and quickshifter off).
The SuperSport has a 810mm seat height which can be reduced by 20mm with a factory seat unit and a full colour TFT display dash which runs with the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS).
The standard SuperSport will come in Red/Grey or Red/Black and the S version comes in Red/Matt Black or White.
Prices are £10,995 for the standard spec model, the S version is £12,295 and if you want that in white paint then you’ll have to fork out another £200.
