With 113bhp from its 937cc V-twin, the 2017 Ducati SuperSport should provide satisfying sportsbike-spec performance and handling, combined with all-day riding comfort

Ducati have finally unveiled the much awaited SuperSport, at the Intermot in Cologne, Germany. 'After sharing a sneak peek with the Ducatista community at WDW 2016, we're ready to present the SuperSport to the thousands of enthusiasts who had eagerly awaited a sport bike capable of ensuring both fun and comfort, even in everyday riding situations,' said Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali. 'Expert riders will appreciate the true sports personality of the SuperSport, its excellent road performance and evident penchant for journeying and everyday use. Riders approaching the Ducati sports world for the first time will discover versatility, easy handling and, above all, the very essence of sports riding as Ducati sees it,' he added.

While it takes some styling cues from the Panigale (including the very cool single-sided swingarm!), the new Ducati SuperSport is designed for those who want a sportsbike, with sportsbike-spec power delivery and handling, but without back- and wrist-killing racetrack-specific ergonomics. The bike is powered by Ducati's 937cc Testastretta V-twin that produces 113bhp. The SuperSport, like all modern Ducatis, comes with a full complement of electronics, including ABS, traction control and three riding modes (Sport, Touring and Urban), which optimise power delivery and the safety electronics' intervention levels to suit the rider's tastes.

With a height-adjustable windscreen, relatively relaxed riding position, plush seat for rider and passenger, and good range thanks to a 16-litre fuel tank, the SuperSport is a brilliant mid-distance sports-tourer. For those who want harder-edged thrills, there's the SuperSport S with fully adjustable Öhlins suspension, Ducati Quick Shift up/down system and a rear seat cover (the last two are also available as optional accessories for the SuperSport).

The 2017 Ducati SuperSport and SuperSport S will be in showrooms by March this year. The SuperSport is priced at US$13,000 while the SuperSport S is just a few beers short of US$15,000. Not too bad.
