Commenting on the launch of the bikes, Sergi Canovas, Managing Director of Ducati India said:
Our seventh motorcycle launched in India this year, the SuperSport is an exciting model for both expert riders and riders contemplating the Ducati sports world for the first time. Expert riders will enjoy its excellent road performance and penchant for touring while the ease of handling and versatility will be appreciated by first time sport bike buyers. The pre-bookings for the SuperSport have been great and our dealership across the country start deliveries today.
The Ducati SuperSport shares its powerplant with the Multistrada 950 and the Hypermotard 939. The 937cc L-twin Desmodromic motor with liquid cooling churns out 113 PS of power at 9,000 rpm. The maximum torque figure stands at 96.7 Nm at 6,500 rpm. The engine transmits power via a 6-speed gearbox with slipper clutch.
The electronics on the SuperSport include Sport, Touring and Urban Riding Modes via Ride-by-Wire. Ducati Safety Pack (DSP), which includes dual channel Bosch 9MP ABS and Ducati Traction Control, enhances the bike’s performance and optimises control even on surfaces that offer less grip. The SuperSport S version comes with a fully adjustable Öhlins suspension (front and rear), the Ducati Quick Shift up/down system, and a rear seat cover. The Ducati Quick Shift and the rear seat cover are also available as accessories for the SuperSport version.
The Ducati SuperSport employs 43 mm fully adjustable Marzocchi front forks and an adjustable Sachs monoshock. The two motorcycles use dual 320 mm front discs with radially mounted Brembo Monobloc callipers at the front. The rear features a 245 mm disc with two-piston callipers. ABS is standard on both the bikes.
