The 2021 SuperSport 950 has arrived in Australia and New Zealand with new fairings and higher electronic tech, while prices have also increased.

- Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO;
- Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) Up /Down EVO and;

All features are adjustable via the menu of the new 4.3” full-TFT display with graphics and interface.
The SuperSport 950 comes with three Riding Modes, called Sport, Touring and Urban – allowing the user to choose between different pre-set modes of the engine parameters and electronic controls to adapt the character of the bike to the rider’s style and environmental conditions.
