DUCATI have announced the SuperSport 950 is now available to purchase in Australia and New Zealand dealerships, with the renamed model having undergone a complete redesign, including new fairings that were developed by Ducati DesignCentre.
The bike now has a strong and decisive resemblance to the Panigale V4, and boasts a 937cc Testastretta 11-degree twin-cylinder engine, revised to comply with Euro 5 standards.
Equipped with electronic controls that base information from Bosch’s 6-axis inertial platform, the SuperSport 950 is capable of instantly detecting the bike’s roll, yaw, and pitch angles in space.
The innovative electronics package consists of BOSCH cornering ABS, Ducati traction control, and quick shift and wheelie control, all of which are adjustable via the menu of the new 4.3-inch full-TFT graphical display.
The SuperSport 950 is equipped with three riding modes, in the form of Sport, Touring and Urban, allowing the user to choose between different pre-set modes. Each one alters the engine parameters and electronic controls to adapt the bike to the rider’s style.
The SuperSport 950 range also includes the 950 S, equipped with fully adjustable Öhlins suspension and a passenger seat cover. Both can be customised by drawing on the Ducati Performance accessories and packages catalogue.
These updates make the Ducati SuperSport 950 sportier in appearance, more fun to ride, and even easier, safer, and more comfortable, thanks to a richer standard equipment list.
The suggested ride away price for the SuperSport 950 in Australia is $19,390, while in New Zealand, it retails from $20,229. To test ride the new Ducati SuperSport 950, contact your local dealer.
