Ducati India will be launching
its road-focused sports bike – the SuperSport and Supersport S on September 22,
2017. Ducati dealerships across India
have started taking pre-bookings for both the SuperSport and SuperSport S.
The SuperSport, the bike for those eager to ride sports-style on everyday roads, makes riders feel like racers: every day. Powering the SuperSport is a twin-cylinder 937 cc Testastretta 11° engine. This delivers 113 hp at 9,000 rpm and a full yet linear torque curve that peaks at 96.7 Nm at 6,500 rpm. Thanks to the three Riding Modes (Sport, Touring and Urban), the SuperSport's temperament can be adapted to ensure maximum enjoyment whatever the riding conditions. Each Riding Mode can, of course, be customised, allowing the bike to be set up quickly to suit personal preferences and riding skills.
The Ducati Design Center has come up with a dynamic, polished, visually compact, light machine with strong Panigale superbike overtones: a Ducati to the core. The motorcycle comes with the Ducati Safety Pack (ABS Bosch + Ducati Traction Control), relaxed rider and passenger positions, good airflow deflection from the height-adjustable Plexiglas screen and the mileage provided by the 16-litre fuel tank. The SuperSport S version comes with fully adjustable Öhlins suspension, the Ducati
Quick Shift up/down system and a rear seat cover: the latter are also available as accessories for the
SuperSport. The SuperSport frame is the latest development of the famous Trellis design that exploits the engine as a load-bearing element. Intelligent frame configuration has played a key role in keeping wet weight down to around 210 kg. Superb chassis geometry, above all the 1,478 mm wheelbase and 180/55 rear tyre, make the SuperSport easy to handle on both city streets and mountain hairpins, maximising stability on bends and at speed.
