2024 Ducati SuperSport 950: SPORT DESIGN AND FLOWING SHAPES.

Introducing the new 2024 Ducati SuperSport 950…

The SuperSport 950 is a motorcycle capable of combining sportiness with everyday road use making it the perfect choice for anyone wishing to approach the world of Borgo Panigale sports bikes. The new model has been revised in design and features better electronics and equipment.

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 shape.

The SuperSport 950 features a true sports bike equipment package with a single-sided swingarm and trellis frame fixed to the engine that acts as a stressed/load-bearing element to reduce weight and bulk. The SuperSport 950 has a dry weight of 407.7 lb (184 kg). The electronic package consists of ABS Cornering, traction control, wheelie control, quickshifter and three Riding Modes (Sport, Touring, Urban).

Thanks to the updates introduced, the SuperSport 950 is now more comfortable. The seat has new padding and a flatter shape that together offer better comfort and greater freedom of longitudinal movement, as well as allowing maximum control for the rider and plenty of room for the passenger. The height of the handlebars allows the rider to assume a sporty riding position without too much strain on their wrists, while the footrests are positioned to not fatigue the knees.

To improve the riding experience, both in town and out of town or on the track, the standard version of the SuperSport 950 is equipped with the Quick Shift Up & Down. The new clutch control is now hydraulic, with an adjustable lever, while the gearbox has been modified to facilitate an easier engagement of neutral when the bike is stationary and to ensure precise gear engagement.

The instrumentation of the SuperSport 950 family includes a new 4.3” full-TFT display. The graphics are characterized by a large round rev counter that shows the gear engaged in the center and allows the rider to keep the most important information under control during sporty riding. The interface, inspired by that of the Panigale family, makes it easy to navigate the menu, adjust the settings and allows for more immediate identification of the selected Riding Mode.

The twin-cylinder Ducati Testastretta engine maintaining maximum power and torque values ​​of 110 hp at 9,000 rpm and 68.6 ft-lb (93 Nm) at 6,500 rpm respectively. The very fluid torque delivery makes the SuperSport 950 a bike capable of giving fun to experienced riders, but at the same time it is not intimidating for novice motorcyclists, making it the perfect choice for those wishing to enter the world of Borgo Panigale sports bikes.

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.

 

Sporty Elegance

The SuperSport 950, thanks to the fairings, acquires more sportiness and fluidity of shapes, as well as a strong and decisive reference to the Panigale V4 sharp light signature thanks to the full-LED headlight and the new side air vents.

The side view is enriched by elegant vents for the hot air coming from the water radiator that are 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 evoking track bikes.

 

Electronics

The Supersport 950 technology

The SuperSport 950 is equipped with modern and refined dynamics control electronics, based on the use of Bosch’s 6-axis inertial platform capable of instantly detecting roll, yaw, and pitch angles of the bike in space.

The operating parameters of each control are associated by default to the three Riding Modes (Sport, Touring, Urban). The rider is given the opportunity to customize his own riding styles and to restore the parameters set by Ducati.

 

The electronic package of the SuperSport 950 consists of:

ABS Cornering Bocsh

The SuperSport 950 is equipped with a Brembo braking system managed by Bosch 9.1 MP ABS with multiple calibration and integrated pressure sensor. Bosch 9.1 MP ABS stops the wheels from locking and prevents the rear from lifting, ensuring the shortest stopping distance and greater stability.

The 3-level adjustment allows you to switch from one level to another by selecting the desired Riding Mode to have the optimal setting in any riding conditions.

Level 1 is recommended for high-grip surfaces, in this configuration the Bosch ABS offers track performance, intervenes only on the front with non-active cornering function and does not include the activation of the rear anti-lift function; level 1 by default is not linked to any Riding Mode, if the rider wishes he can associate it to the Riding Mode he prefers by entering the specific menu.

With level 2, Bosch ABS is also active on the rear wheel and the anti-lift control is enabled.

Level 3 corresponds to the maximum degree of intervention on braking and lifting the rear.

Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO

The DTC EVO that equips the SuperSport 950 interfaces with Bosch’s 6-axis inertial platform, measuring the lean angle of the motorcycle at any time and using it to manage with greater accuracy, compared to a traditional traction control, the required intervention to ensure the ideal slip of the rear tire (based on the level of DTC EVO inserted).

Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO

The Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO added to the standard equipment of the SuperSport 950 enhances its sporty soul. This control manages the wheelie and allows you to obtain maximum acceleration performance with ease and safety. Thanks to the information provided by Bosch’s 6-axis inertial platform, the DWC EVO more accurately detects the presence and extent of wheelies and intervenes to control them with a greater level of precision, so as to satisfy the rider’s requests even more precisely.

Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down EVO

The DQS EVO with up/ down function, in addition to minimizing shift times, allows you to downshift without using the clutch, ensuring even more effective braking. The system acts separately for upshifting and downshifting: in upshift the system intervenes on ignition and injection advance, in downshift it also manages the controlled opening of the throttle valve, thanks to the integration with the full Ride-by-Wire system. The DQS EVO also exploits information on the lean angle to maximize the stability of the bike during the shifting phase when cornering.

Ducati Riding Mode

The SuperSport 950 is equipped with three Riding Modes, called Sport, Touring and Urban. Each of these acts on the Ride-by-Wire electronic system, altering power and delivery, the intervention levels of Bosch ABS, DTC, DWC and the activation of DQS up/down.

Full-TFT color instrumentation

The instrumentation of the SuperSport 950 family includes a 4.3” full-TFT display. The graphics and interface, inspired by those of the Panigale family, make it easy to navigate the menu, adjust settings and more immediately identify the selected Riding Mode. The Riding Mode adjustment interface immediately and clearly displays how the settings are being made, thanks to an explanatory graphic of the system being worked on and a graduated scale that indicates whether the change is more oriented towards performance or vehicle safety/stability.

Full-LED floodlight with bi-function modules

The headlight of the SuperSport 950 is a full-LED unit, the result of a careful design study with the aim of strengthening the aesthetic link with the super-sports Panigale and making the bike immediately recognizable on the roads. The front headlight is characterized by the LED daytime running lights (DRL), which guarantee perfect visibility of the vehicle during the day and, at the same time, thanks to the particular shape, reinforce the family feeling with the Panigale model. The DRL has a refined construction with an opal that diffuses the light evenly.

The headlamp is completed by two bi-function LED modules for low beam and high beam that allow the bike to have a symmetrical “look” when the lights are on. The two modules are embedded in a frame with a brilliant finish which gives this technological component the preciousness of a jewel. The taillight, the license plate lights and the front turn signals, integrated in the rear-view mirrors, are LED, while the rear ones are lamp-based, replaceable with LED lights available as an accessory.

Ducati Multimedia System (DMS)

The TFT dashboard is designed to display information from the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS) which, after connecting your smartphone to the bike via Bluetooth technology, allows you to manage certain functions by means of buttons on the handlebar. The display shows the commands of the “music player”, and icons for headset connection status and incoming call and received message alerts. The DMS is available for the entire SuperSport 950 range as a Ducati Performance accessory.

 

Ducati DNA

The SuperSport 950’s genetic background is a true Ducati sport bike and its features openly declare it: a single sided swingarm and trellis frame fixed to the engine that acts as a stressed element to reduce weight and overall dimensions.

 

Trellis Frame

The SuperSport 950 is equipped with a trellis frame that uses the engine as a structural element of the chassis. The main steel trellis is connected to the cylinder heads, while the rear seat post subframe, also in steel, is fixed to that of the vertical cylinder.

This configuration allows for a very compact, light frame with high torsional rigidity, a perfect feature to enhance the dynamic qualities of the SuperSport 950. The configuration of the frame with supporting engine contributes to having a curb weight of 463 lb, 2.2 lb less than the first SuperSport.

Single sided swingarm

As a true Ducati sports bike, the SuperSport 950 is equipped with adjustable suspension and single-sided swingarm in gravity cast aluminum, which has characteristics of high rigidity and low weight, giving the bike a technical and professional look.

The front is equipped with a 43 mm diameter Marzocchi fork, fully adjustable in hydraulics and preload. The rear has a Sachs shock absorber, fixed to the vertical cylinder on one side and to the single arm on the other, with adjustment of spring preload and hydraulic brake in extension.

The SuperSport 950 S is equipped with refined, multi-adjustable Öhlins suspension. At the front there is a fork with 48 mm diameter stanchions, with TiN treatment for maximum smoothness, and at the rear an Öhlins monoshock, fully adjustable, with integrated gas tank.

The chassis equipment of both versions can be completed with an adjustable Öhlins steering damper.

Tires and rims

The SuperSport 950 is fitted with three-spoke alloy wheels with a sporty “Y” design in sizes 3.50 x 17 at the front and 5.50 x 17 at the rear. The rims fit the 120/70 ZR 17 Pirelli Diablo Rosso® III at the front and 180/55 ZR 17 at the rear. Pirelli Diablo Rosso® III maximizes the performance offered by a road tire.

Thanks to its profiles, to latest-generation materials, to an innovative structure, to a bi-compound configuration and to a “flash” tread pattern derived directly from that of the Diablo® Supercorsa, the Pirelli Diablo Rosso® III guarantees remarkable handling, absolute grip and high performance in the wet, while offering lasting and performance consistency over the entire life cycle of the tire.

Brembo brakes

The Brembo braking system of the SuperSport 950 is typical of sports models in terms of technical content and visual impact. At the front there are Brembo M4-32 monobloc radial calipers that act on two 320 mm diameter discs, driven by a Brembo self-bleeding radial pump with separate tank and adjustable lever.

Thanks to its profiles, to latest-generation materials, to an innovative structure, to a bi-compound configuration and to a “flash” tread pattern derived directly from that of the Diablo® Supercorsa, the Pirelli Diablo Rosso® III guarantees remarkable handling, absolute grip and high performance in the wet, while offering lasting and performance consistency over the entire life cycle of the tyre.

The seat

The seat, revised in the padding, improves comfort in road use. The improvement in comfort also passes through more effective heat guards, which shield the exhaust manifolds and the fresh air vents for the rider’s legs obtained in the fairings.

The portion of the seat reserved for the passenger is well spaced from the footrests and is adequately padded. To increase comfort, it is possible to choose from the Ducati Performance accessories range a seat with greater padding (+25 mm) for rider and passenger, suitable for longer journeys, and external passenger handles, which offer a more ergonomic grip than the standard ones integrated into the under-seat.

Comfort and versatility

In the SuperSport 950, to combine comfort and versatility while still ensuring a sporty ride, much attention was paid to the ergonomics triangle, aerodynamic protection and freedom of movement for the rider.
