VISORDOWN'S Simon Greenacre is on the launch of the Ducati Supersport S in Spain, where he's just finished a morning on track and sent us these first thoughts on the bike:
'It's been a wet track session on wet tyres but it was enough for the Superport S to establish its credentials as a comfortable sports bike with agile, neutral handling.
'Ergonomics are fairly upright and easy-going, as we could tell just by looking at the bike, but it still allows for fast riding.
'It's an exciting riding experience, although predictably not as focused as a Panigale.
'I expect it's going to be superb on the road this afternoon.'
