The 2020 Ducati Supersport and Supersport S
The Ducati Supersport first broke cover in 2017, designed as the missing link in the evolutionary chain between Ducati’s Monster and Panigale models. It has all the characteristics of an aggressive sports machine, but with the calmer and more practical nature of an upright, every day motorcycle. It’s the perfect mix of comfort and versatility, with enough sporting DNA to appeal to knee-dragging enthusiasts.
Powered by Ducati’s tried and tested 11-degree 937cc Testastretta engine, the Supersport produces an impressive 110 horsepower, with 69 lb-ft of peak torque on offer too. It’s more potent than you’d expect, and that’s why Ducati has treated it with all the necessary bells and whistles to keep that power in check, and make for an easy ride experience.
The electronics suite includes Bosch ABS, Ducati Traction Control, multiple ride modes, and a bi-directional Ducati Quickshifter. Suspension duties are handled by a fully-adjustable Marzocchi fork, and an adjustable rear spring from Sachs, while Brembo units cover the brakes. Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tires are also fitted as standard.
If that wasn’t enough, Ducati also has the Supersport S on offer, a more advanced model kitted out with top shelf parts. Öhlins suspension replaces the stock units, with a passenger seat cover and other premium goodies.
The 2020 Ducati Supersport is available in Titanium Grey, with a price tag of $13,095. The more advanced Supersport S is available in Stark White Silk or Ducati Red, with a price tag of $15,795.
