Ducati introduces the 2024 SuperSport 950 S, showcasing an alluring new Stripe livery. 

  • Revealed on May 16, 2023, the latest model retains its core features while incorporating design updates.
  • Ducati equips the 2024 SuperSport 950 S with a fully adjustable Öhlins suspension.

The SuperSport 950 S stands out with its remarkable Stripe livery, blending classic hues with contemporary aesthetics. The predominant Iceberg White fairing serves as a canvas for the addition of a distinctive red stripe, complemented by a thicker gray stripe beneath it. These vibrant stripes are separated by a sleek white line that harmoniously integrates with the rest of the fairing. 

Notably, the red stripe seamlessly flows into the peekaboo glimpse of the red frame, creating an enticing visual appeal. Similarly, the broader gray stripe leads the eye towards the saddle, forming a compelling diagonal line.

To enhance performance and handling, Ducati equips the 2024 SuperSport 950 S with a fully adjustable Öhlins suspension system both in the front and rear. The bike also features a pillion seat cover and a pair of 17-inch wheels finished in Glossy Black, accentuated by a Ducati Red tag.

It’s worth mentioning that the base model will be the only option available in the iconic Ducati Red color for the 2024 lineup.

Underneath its sleek exterior, the SuperSport 950 S houses Ducati’s renowned 937cc Testastretta 11-degree twin engine. With an impressive power output of 110 horsepower @ 9,000 rpm and 93Nm @ 6,500 rpm, this bike delivers exhilarating performance.

Riders can enjoy seamless gear shifts with the six-speed gearbox, complete with an up and down quickshifter and a slipper clutch.

Safety features are not compromised, as the SuperSport 950 S boasts reliable braking capabilities. The front end employs radially mounted Brembo M4-32 monobloc four-piston calipers, gripping two 320mm semi-floating brake discs.

At the rear, a single two-piston caliper operates on a 245mm brake disc. The bike also incorporates Bosch Cornering ABS to ensure optimal control in all riding conditions.

The 2024 SuperSport 950 S is equipped with a range of practical features, including a height-adjustable windscreen and a 4.3-inch full TFT display. Riders can choose from three riding modes—Sport, Touring, and Urban—to tailor the bike’s performance to their preferences. Additionally, traction control and wheelie control enhance stability and confidence on the road.

In 2005, MV Agusta released one of its rarest model as a homage to one of its legendary designers, Massimo Tamburini.

A limited edition “Sports class” bike, only 300 units of the F4 1000 were ever produced.

If you don’t already know, Massimo Tamburini was one of the designers who made MV Agusta into what it is today, and the F4 was one of his greatest achievements.

He is also responsible for creating other beauties such as the Cagiva Freccia and designed for other brands like Bimota and is also responsible for the beautiful Ducati 916.

Bearing a prestigious name with limited production, you can probably imagine that the F4 1000 will cost future owners a hefty price to get their hands on one of this sexy Italian.

The MV Agusta F4 1000 Tamburini doesn’t only sport a legendary name, it also comes with a 996cc inline-four engine mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The powertrain produces 172 horsepower and 112.53 Nm of torque.

The dry weight is 191.0 kg and top speed is rated at 282.8 km/h.

The F4 1000 also comes with other goodies such as a Öhlins steering damper, Marzocchi front forks, Sachs mono-shock, and Nissin calipers.

On the topic of chassis characteristics, handling behavior and ride comfort, the MV Agusta F4 Tamburini features a CrMo Steel tubular trellis (TIG welded) and a magnesium alloy frame.

One of the eye-striking aspects about the F4 are the gold-anodized 17-inch Marchesini forged aluminum wheels mounted to a single sided swing-arm.

MV also debuted their Torque Shift System, which is able to vary the intake trumpet length dependent on speed to maximize torque output.

All bodywork is carbon fiber, making this bike extremely light (183 kg) and undoubtedly gorgeous with aggressive looks.

So why are you reading this article? Well, the F4 1000 is a proper collector’s item and current bids are pushing its value upwards of USD30,000. So if you come across one, grab it while you can.

Honda has decided to abandon Öhlins suspension and Brembo brakes set up for the upcoming 2022 season.

Instead, the big technical change will see HRC to put their faith on Showa’s suspension and Nissin brakes.

HRC did a test with Iker Lecuona and Xavi Vierge for in Jerez for comparison and after the assesment, the team decided to equipped the CBR1000RR-R with an entirely “Made in Japan” components.

The team previously relied on Öhlins and Brembo until last year but due to the disappointing result, HRC decided it’s best to apply some major changes ahead of next season.

More importantly, Showa boast an important experience in the WorldSBK with Kawasaki while Nissin already equipping the BMW Motorrad machine.

Ohlins Asia telah menghasilkan penyerap hentakan khas untuk motosikal ‘funbike’ Honda Monkey 125, hari ini.

Meskipun Honda Monkey tidak mencapai populariti di Malaysia namun lain kisahnya di negara jiran, Thailand, dengan rata-rata menggunakan motosikal jenis ‘fun bike’ sebagai kaedah pengangkutan utama.

Menyedari perkara ini, Ohlins, selaku peneraju utama dalam teknologi penyerap hentakan telah menghasilkan produk khas bagi meningkatkan lagi keselesaan tunggangan Monkey dengan memperkenalkan kit redaman fork depan dan sistem penyerap hentakan belakang.

Pengurus Ohlins Asia, Alex D’Antoni mengakui berasa seronok sepanjang projek menghasilkan produk untuk Honda Monkey.

“Kami teruja sepanjang projek ini. Mengenakan penyerap hentakan berteknologi tinggi terhadap Honda Monkey ternyata meningkatkan lagi kemampuan serta keselesaan tunggangan. Dua faktor ini amat penting terutamanya dalam menempuh perjalanan harian di kawasan bandar yang sesak,” jelasnya.

Kit redaman depan Ohlins terbukti meningkatkan daya serap hentakan di samping mengoptimumkan kemampuan membrek.

Ohlins Asia telah mereka dua jenis penyerap hentakan belakang bagi Honda Monkey 125 iaitu penyerap hentakan berkembar STX 36 jenis emulsion – yang didatangkan dengan spring preload boleh laras – dan penyerap hentakan premium dengan gaya twin piggy back reservoir.

Kedua-dua produk ini mampu menahan berat penunggang lebih dari 80 kilogram.

Semua produk ini boleh didapati di setiap pengedar Ohlins di Asia.

  • Tenneco Inc. akan membeli saham majoriti dalam syarikat suspensi terkemuka, Öhlins Racing A. B.
  • Pengasas Öhlins, Kenth Öhlin akan kekal bersama syarikat berkenaan.
  • Perjanjian ini akan dimeterai pada tahun 2019.


  • Tenneco Inc. will buy a majority stake in suspension specialist Öhlins Racing A.B.

  • Öhlins founder Kenth Öhlin will remain with the company.

  • The deal will be finalized in 2019.

Tenneco Inc. will own a majority stake in premier suspension specialist Öhlins Racing A.B.

While many of us may not be familiar with Tenneco’s name, the American company owned the Marzocchi suspension brand. Tenneco shut down Marzocchi in 2015 before selling it to VRM, an Italian automotive company.

The deal is worth $160 million (RM669 million). The minority stake will remain with founder Kenth Öhlin. Industry observers consider the amount a premium. However, Teneco aims to lead the suspension industry, no doubt through Öhlins’s research and development in electronically controlled and semi-active suspension (CES).

Brian Kesseler, co-CEO of Tenneco said, “Öhlins’ technology team will allow us to rapidly grow our product offerings for current and future customers, as well as help us win a larger share of business in developing mobility markets.” He also added that the Öhlins team plays an important part of the new Aftermarket and Ride Performance company.

Öhlins currently employs 340 personnel in its R&D sit in Sweden. They have branches and subsidiaries worldwide are in Thailand, Sweden, Germany, USA. Öhlins practically holds a monopoly in the motorcycle road-racing scene, thereby etching the into road riders’ psyche. (Öhlins supplies suspension systems for cars, also.)

We expect the acquisition to close in the first quarter of 2019. Kenth Öhlin will continue to provide strategic and technological vision to the company, however.
