The Ducati Supersport 950 is once again available as part of the 2021 Ducati line-up, but with no noticeable upgrades over last year. It still remains as a strong entry-level Ducati motorcycle that offers serious sports performance but in a more restrained and compact package than the class-leading V4 machines.
For 2021, the Supersport 950 is available in two flavors: the Supersport 950 and the Supersport 950 S. Both models share the same Italian-made 937cc Testastretta 11-degree twin-cylinder engine. The power is rated at 110 horsepower, with 69 lb-ft of peak torque available. Both models also share the same riding aids and electronics, including selectable riding modes, power modes, advanced cornering ABS, traction control, a bi-directional quick shifter, and more.
The most significant difference between the models is the suspension. The standard Supersport 950 uses Marzocchi forks and a Sachs shock, while the 950 S uses fully-adjustable Öhlins suspension at the front and rear. The 950 S also benefits from a passenger seat cowl.
For 2021, the Supersport 950 is available in Ducati Red. The higher-spec Supersport 950 S is available in a choice of Ducati Red or an exclusive Arctic White color scheme.
The 2021 Ducati Supersport 950 starts at $13,495 USD / $15,395 CAD.

2021 Ducati Supersport 950 / 950 S Features
The strengths of the Ducati sports bike intended for the road have always been their dynamic style, visual compactness, elegant lines and proportions typical of Panigale sports bikes.
The new SuperSport 950, thanks to new fairings, becomes more sporty and shapely with a strong reference to the Panigale V4 with a new full-LED headlight and side air vents.
A sharp light signature
The aesthetic link between the SuperSport 950 and the Panigale V4 is even more accentuated in this new version. The full-LED headlamp equipped with DRL immediately recalls the sharp light signature of the Panigale V4, while the fairings have been specially redesigned to highlight the sportiness of the bike and the fluidity of its forms.
The side view of the SuperSport 950 is marked by air vents reminiscent of the double extractor of the Panigale V4 models. The lower fairing now extends to the side silencer, hiding the mechanical components and visually recalling the track bikes.
The windshield of the SuperSport 950 is low to create a streamlined and dynamic line, centrally connected to the tank bringing the body color into the cockpit, with a modern design that houses the new full-TFT color dashboard. Aerodynamic protection is guaranteed by a sporty cut Plexiglas that is height adjustable in two positions.
