Motorcycle News (UK) - - 2016 Motorcycle Live -

THE FACTS O 115bhp O 210kg O Seat height 810mm

HIGH­LIGHTS O 937cc V-twin O Fully-ad­justable …hlins sus­pen­sion O 3 rid­ing modes, 8-stage trac­tion con­trol, 3-level vari­able ABS

The new Su­pers­port is in­tended, say Du­cati, to Òblend Du­catiõs sport­ing side with road fo­cused per­for­mance and ac­ces­si­bil­i­tyó. What this means in prac­tice is an ev­ery­day Du­cati sports­bike Ð and we think it looks great.

The en­gineõs in­ter­nals are al­most iden­ti­cal to the Hyper­mo­tard, how­ever al­ter­ations to the in­take and ex­haust sys­tem have shifted the power lower in the rev range, while longer fi­nal drive ra­tios have also been added. The Su­pers­port makes 80% of its 71.3ftlb of torque at just 3000rpm while its peak power of 115bhp ap­pears at 9000rpm. This is backed up by the same com­pre­hen­sive elec­tron­ics pack­age as found on the Hyper­mo­tard with ABS, trac­tion con­trol and vari­able fuel and a bi-di­rec­tional quick­shifter.

The seat height of 810mm can also be in­creased or re­duced by 20mm through an ac­ces­sory seat unit while the 16-litre tank is made from steel to al­low the fit­ment of mag­netic tank bags. The per­fect ev­ery­day Du­cati.
