Ducati SuperSport 950 and Panigale V4 SP revealed

2021 Ducati Super Sport 950 S Front Profile

Ducati has revealed the 2021 SuperSport 950 with Panigale-inspired looks and new electronic riding aids.

And the most obvious change is its styling which now features ducts, scoops for better airflow and an aggressive fascia with redesigned LED lighting that makes it look Panigale-like. Other electronics also include a Bosch six-axis IMU and the addition of a new 4.3-inch full-TFT dashboard.

The new bike will be available in Ducati dealers from February 2021 in red for the base model priced at £12,295 and in red or white in the Öhlins equipped S version costing £13,895.

Expect Ducati to bring in the Supersport 950 in India sometime next year, along with the recently unveiled updated models including the Scrambler 800 and the XDiavel range.

Twin 320mm discs, mounted with Brembo M4-32 monobloc radial callipers, manage braking on the front wheel, while a 245mm disc with a Brembo two-piston calliper completes the rear brake setup.

The Panigale V4 SP is basically a Panigale V4 S with details shared with the Panigale V4 R and the Superleggera V4. The SP then gets carbon fiber rims and other carbon fiber bits, which aids in dropping unsprung mass, and also aids in decreasing the moment of inertia for quicker handling.

The mill comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and an STM EVO-SBK dry clutch, which gets a open carbon fiber cover. This engine is now Euro 5 compliant and the transition has seen the bike's weight rise by 1kg to 210kg. Like the Panigale V4 S, the SP version also gets Ohlins NIX-30 forks at the front and an Ohlins TTX36 rear shock absorber. This controls the bike's rider assist features such as cornering ABS, traction control and wheelie control.

You'll also get a full racing kit for track use, including solid aluminium caps for the removal of the rear view mirrors, kit for the removal of the license plate holder, open clutch cover and includes the Ducati Data Analyzer + with Global Positioning System module.
