The SuperSport is the new entry-level sports bike from Ducati

The Ducati SuperSport has been launched in India as a versatile new offering with prices starting at Rs. 12.08 lakh (ex-showroom, India). Available in two variants - SuperSport and SuperSport S, the motorcycle has been developed to be used for everyday riding but can make occasional track visits fun. The Ducati SuperSport is positioned as a powerful motorcycle, but with easy ergonomics and power tuned for more linear delivery. The SuperSport offers a wider range of appeal that will certainly be liked by many looking forward to bring the Italian offering home.

Styling on the Ducati SuperSport has been inspired from the Panigale and the bike looks desirable from all sides. It's distinctly Italian and the every bit of a head turner. The dual headlamp setup meets in the centre, while the shotgun exhausts look extremely impressive. The SuperSport is a more relaxed motorcycle and the riding position is much less aggressive than the Panigale. Making things easier is the higher set handlebar and the less sporty foot pegs. The SuperSport uses an all-digital instrument cluster that is easy to read and displays all vitals.

Both the Ducati SuperSport and SuperSport S use the 937 cc Testastretta 11-degree L-twin engine that produces 110 bhp of power and 93 Nm of peak torque. The motor comes paired to a 6-speed gearbox and gets revised crankcase and cylinder heads. Power spread is wider through the rev range for effortless in-city use. The kerb weight is measured at 210 kg.

Both variants of the Ducati SuperSport come with Ride-by-Wire and three riding modes - Sport, Touring and Urban. There is also 3-level Bosch ABS and 8-level Ducati Traction Control on the model. While the standard version uses 43 Marzocchi front forks and a Sachs monoshock rear unit, the SuperSport S gets an uprated Ohlins suspension setup at the front and rear. Other features remain the same on both variants.

The Ducati SuperSport primarily competes with the sports tourers in the market. The Kawasaki Ninja 1000 and Suzuki GSX-S1000F match closely to the Ducati offering in price and performance. Available in two colour options - Red and White, deliveries for the SuperSport commence today for the red shade; whereas the white shade will be available from November onward.
