Ducati’s version of a sport tourer, the SuperSport was unveiled at Intermot in 2016 and is easily recognizable by its butterfly-shaped headlamp with LED daytime running lights.
The SuperSport uses a 937cc Testastretta L-twin mill that churns out 113bhp of power at 9000rpm and 96.7Nm of torque at 6500rpm. The bike’s 41mm Marzocchi front fork and a Sachs shock at the rear provide 127mm and 142mm of travel respectively. Brembo M4-32 calipers with 320mm discs at the front and a 245mm disc at the rear bring the Supersport to a halt.
The bike gets a two-way adjustable windscreen to suit rider preferences and a higher fitted clip-on handlebar for the touring position. In terms of electronics, ABS is standard with the Ducati Safety Pack that also includes Ducati Traction Control and 3 three riding modes, Sport, Touring and Urban- the first two providing maximum power from the 937cc engine while the Urban cuts power to 75bhp.
With a seat height of 810mm, the bike sits a tad lower than the Panigale and weighs 210kg with a fuel tank capacity of 16 litres. The Ducati SuperSport competes with the Suzuki GSX-S1000F and the Kawasaki Ninja 1000 in the Indian market.
