Ducati India today launched the SuperSport, a motorcycle that combines comfort and versatility making it an everyday sport bike without compromising on the style and soul of a true Ducati thoroughbred. The SuperSport is agile on urban roads, comfortable on highways and decisive when faced with out-of-town hairpin turns, the SuperSport allows anyone to indulge their sports instinct.
“Our seventh motorcycle launched in India this year, the SuperSport is an exciting model for both expert riders and riders contemplating the Ducati sports world for the first time” said Sergi Canovas, Managing Director of Ducati India. “Expert riders will enjoy its excellent road performance and penchant for touring while the ease of handling and versatility will be appreciated by first time sport bike buyers. The pre-bookings for the SuperSport have been great and our dealership across the country start deliveries today.”
Powering the SuperSport is a twin-cylinder 937 cm³ Testastretta 11° engine, delivering a huge 110 hp at 9,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 93 Nm at 6,500 rpm – a full yet linear torque curve. The innovative front fairing makes for an uninterrupted aerodynamic profile that draws attention to the sculpted tank. The tail piece that is separate from the rest of the fairing, adds sports elegance and ensures maximum aerodynamic efficiency.
The electronics package on the SuperSport increases the level of active safety. The Sport, Touring and Urban Riding Modes act on the Ride-by-Wire, ABS and DTC parameters to modify the behavior of the bike and adapt it to suit personal preferences and riding conditions. Ducati Safety Pack (DSP), which includes Bosch 9MP ABS and Ducati Traction Control, enhances the bike’s performance and optimises control even on surfaces that offer less grip.
The SuperSport S version comes with a fully adjustable Öhlins suspension, the Ducati Quick Shift up/down system, which is a race derived technology and a rear seat cover. The Ducati Quick Shift and the rear seat covers are also available as accessories for the SuperSport version.
The SuperSport can be fitted with a full range of Ducati Performance accessories that let owners configure their bike to suit personal wants and needs. Deliveries for the Ducati SuperSport & SuperSport S have started across all seven Ducati dealerships in India including Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Kochi & Kolkata. The SuperSport and SuperSport S are priced at INR 12,08,000 (ex-showroom India) and INR 13,39,000 respectively.
