No matter what kind of minute detail or odd -quirk you want to know about, just leave a comment below or fire off an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be sure to answer your query in my written review.
Ducati’s new SuperSport was first spotted in July 2016 when a picture of it found its way out from a private viewing at World Ducati Week. The bike was formally unveiled at the Intermot show in Cologne towards the end of last year.
Ducati is pitching the SuperSport as a versatile sports bike – something that’s more comfortable and accessible than a Panigale, more suited to town riding and motorway work, while retaining the capacity to excite on a twisty stretch of road and on the occasional track day.
The engine is the same 937cc Testastretta V-twin that’s the Multistrada 950 and Hypermotard, making 113hp, with an electronic package that include three riding modes (Sport, Touring and Urban) and Ducati’s traction control system.
The S model gets tricker, fully-adjustable Ohlins suspension, plus Ducati’s DQS quickshifter for clutchelss gear changes up and down the 'box.
Prices are: £10,955 for the standard bike, £12,295 for the S in red and £12,495 for the S in white.
Look out for a full first ride review coming soon.
