WORTH Ver­dict


Motorcycle News (UK) - - Road Test - MICHAEL NEEVES

It needed dry roads and three ri­vals to show its bril­liance, but fi­nally the new Su­pers­port has cap­tured our hearts.

The Ducati is com­fort­able for long dis­tances, but not quite up there with a more op­u­lent sports tourer like a Z1000SX, but itõs not far off and on the flip side is sportier and more fun.

Itõs sort of like a VFR800 in terms of its rid­ing po­si­tion and the way it looks, but the Su­pers­port S is lighter, faster, more ag­ile and is crammed with tech­nol­ogy. And itõs every bit as fast as a race replica on the road, but with a more sup­ple ride, less weight on your wrists and eas­ier-to-ac­cess per­for­mance.

Take the com­fort of the Z1000SX and the rid­ing po­si­tion of the VFR800F, mix it all to­gether and add a dash of Pani­gale and you end up with the new Su­pers­port. Itõs the sports­bike weõve been wait­ing for all along. Bet­ter still, you can have one for a snip over £100 per month.
