Ducati has unveiled the 2021 SuperSport 950 during the third episode of its World Premiere. The latest faired bikes from the house of Borgo Panigale are all inspired from the Panigale V4. It continues to be powered by a 937cc, L-twin engine with peak power and torque figures - 110hp at 9,000rpm and 93.5Nm at 6,500rpm - remaining unchanged as well. A six-speed gearbox, combined with the Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down EVO, is standard across the range.

The suspension duties on the motorcycle are taken care of by Ohlins NIX 30 front forks, a TTX 36 rear shock unit, and an electronic steering damper. The SuperSport 950 S version gets an uprated, fully-adjustable Öhlins suspension setup, a passenger seat cover and the Ducati "Red Tag" on the wheels.

The aim of the Italian firm, in the looks department, has been to bring the Super Sport 950 in-line with its larger siblings, much like what it did with the V2 a year ago.

The bike has received a new 4.3-inch full-TFT instrument cluster and also comes in an S version.

Ducati update SuperSport 950 for 2021

First introduced on the Ducati 851, the "SP" moniker add-on has been revived for the 2021 Panigale range.

The Panigale V4 SP is basically a Panigale V4 S with details shared with the Panigale V4 R and the Superleggera V4. Further weight-saving has been achieved by using carbon fibre wings and front mudguard. Another addition on the Panigale V4 SP comes in the form of adjustable rider footpegs.

The Riding mode has also been split into two different mappings giving the rider more flexibility when chasing a quick lap time on track. It also gets cornering ABS and "Ducati Traction Control EVO" (cornering traction control) and "Ducati Wheelie Control EVO" that also uses the IMU to manage the amount of front-wheel lift under hard acceleration.

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.
