Ducati India will launch its road-focused sports bike – the SuperSport on 22nd September 2017. Elected the most beautiful bike at EICMA 2016, the Ducati SuperSport is a perfect blend of comfort, style and versatility making it an everyday sports bike without compromising on the performance and handling that Ducati is synonymous with.
Ducati dealerships across India have started taking pre-bookings for both the SuperSport and SuperSport S.
Powering the SuperSport is a twin-cylinder 937 cm³ 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 SuperSport frame is the latest development of the famous Trellis design that exploits the engine as a load-bearing element. Compact, light and rigid, it plays a pivotal role in making the SuperSport swift at the drop-in, yet also an instinctual machine that can be ridden by everyone. 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, makes the SuperSport easy to handle on both city streets and mountain hairpins, maximising stability on bends and at speed.
As one would expect from Ducati, the SuperSport can be fitted with a full range of Ducati Performance accessories (some are included in the Sport, Touring and Urban packages) that let owners configure the bike to suit personal wants and needs.
Expert riders will appreciate the true sports personality of the SuperSport, its excellent road performance and an evident penchant for journeying and everyday use. Riders approaching the Ducati sports world for the first time will discover dazzling versatility, easy handling and, above all, the very essence of sports riding as Ducati sees it.
