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.

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.
