The latest 2021 Ducati SuperSport 950 makes its debut in the third web episode of the 2021 Ducati World Premiere alongside the limited-edition Ducati Panigale V4 SP. With new looks, the new SuperSport also carries some design DNA inspired by its superbike siblings and one thing is for sure, it definitely looks way better than the previous-gen.
The 2021 Ducati SuperSport 950 now comes with new front fairings with enhanced sportiness and aggressiveness thanks to a lot of inspiration from the Panigale V4 family. This new fairing houses a new LED headlight and side air vents together with flair side vents which double as hot air extractors (this also helps divert hot air away from the rider’s legs).
Its lower fairings are now extended right before the side silencers (which are also new) to cover some mechanical parts to further enhance the bike’s sporty appearance. There’s also a new adjustable windshield made using Plexiglas that offers greater wind protection and aerodynamic performance.
In terms of firepower, the 2021 Ducati SuperSport 950 comes with a 937cc Testastretta twin-cylinder engine that produces 110hp at 9,000rpm and 93Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. This unit is also now Euro5-compliant with Ride-by-Wire throttle control for a smooth yet exhilarating riding experience.
Owners will also appreciate some new features like its full-TFT dashboard, single-seat arrangement for rider and pillion, and other specs like:
- 43mm fully-adjustable Marzocchi USD fork
- Rear Sachs monoshock
- 17-inch wheels with Pirelli Diablo Rosso III
- Aluminium single-sided swingarm
- Brembo Monobloc M4-32 calipers
- 16-litre fuel tank
The electronics department comes equipped with selectable riding modes, Bosch Cornering ABS, Ducati Traction Control (DTC), Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC), and most importantly, Ducati Quick Shift (DQS). Sweet.
There’s also the SuperSport 950 S variant which comes with everything stated above apart from some different mechanical features like a 48mm fully-adjustable Marzocchi USD front fork with TiN treatment, Ohlins rear monoshock, and a dedicated passenger seat cowl.
