First Drive Review - http://bit.ly/2jZMFuU
Ducati SuperSport is the latest sports bike from the Italian brand for the Indian market. The Ducati SuperSports is available in two variants - standard and SuperSport S. The base version of the new Ducati bike has been priced at Rs 12.09 lakh while the SuperSport S retails for Rs 13.39 lakh (both prices are ex-showroom).
While all Ducat sports bikes offerings are track focused in their approach and have an aggressive riding stance, the Ducati SuperSport is more suited for the mountain roads than racetrack. For this purpose it has a relaxed and comfortable riding posture and also gets adjustable windscreen.
Underneath the sculpted bodywork resides a 937cc, L-Twin Testastretta engine that debuted on the Ducati Hypermotard. The liquid-cooled motor delivers 110PS at 9,500rpm, while 93Nm of peak torque is made available at 6,500rpm. The Ducati 959 Panigale’s motor produces 157PS and a higher torque of 107.4Nm.
The new Ducati SuperSport gets loaded with goodies like ride-by-wire, power modes, 3-level Bosch ABS unit and traction control with 8 levels. The SuperSport S, on the other hand, gets fully adjustable Ohlins suspension unit, rear cowl and bi-directional quickshifter (optional on the stock variant also). The Ducati SuperSport will compete against the Kawasaki Ninja 1000 and the Suzuki GSX-R1000F in the Indian two-wheeler market.
