Ducati SuperSport and SuperSport S Launched
ducaTI IndIa have launched their much-awaited supersport and supersport s in India bearing price tags of Rs 12.08 lakh and Rs 13.39 lakh (ex-showroom), respectively. although it sports heavy visual overtones reminiscent of the panigale, the supersport isn’t a hardcore track machine. Instead, it is less committed and built more along the lines of a sports-tourer. The supersport s comes with more equipment as standard, comprising a fully adjustable Öhlins suspension, the ducati Quick shifter (dQs), and a rear seat-cover. The dQs and rear seat-cover are also offered as an option for the supersport.
ducati claim that the latest tubular-steel Trellis frame has been instrumental in keeping the weight of the motorcycle at 210 kg. The standard supersport uses a fully adjustable 43-mm usd (upside down) marzocchi forks. Whereas the supersport s gets fully adjustable 48-mm Öhlins forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear.
The bikes get Brembo monobloc four-piston calipers at the front, and a single disc at the rear, ducati safety pack (Bosch aBs + ducati Traction control), and pirelli diablo Rosso III tyres.
powering both motorcycles is the familiar 937-cc, Testastretta 11° l-twin which produces 110 ps at 9,000 rpm. peak torque of 93 nm is now delivered at 6,500 rpm, with 80 per cent of all that twist coming in as low as 3,000 revs. power is transferred to the rear wheel through a six-speed gearbox.
ducati are also offering an array of ducati performance accessories within the sport, Touring, and urban packages. owners can configure their supersport to complement the kind of riding they intend to do.
