2021 Ducati SuperSport 950 Launched In India; Tyres & Wheels Detail
Published On 16-Sep-2021
Apart from a number of changes, the Ducati Supersport 950 tyres continue to be Pirelli Diablo Rosso III at both front and rear.
Under its promise of launching 12 new products in the Indian market for 2021, Ducati has expanded its Indian lineup by relaunching the SuperSport 950 in India. The new Ducati SuperSport 950 has been made available in two versions – Standard and S, which are priced at Rs 13.49 lakh and Rs 15.49 lakh (both prices ex-showroom).
The Ducati SuperSport 950 was previously available in the Indian market till the deadline of BS4 emission norms kicked in. However, in the new BS6 era, the reintroduced version of the SuperSport 950 boasts of several visual and mechanical changes. All these changes have made it a sportier and expensive motorcycle than before.
The new Ducati SuperSport 950 now looks much sharper and closer to the proper track tool Panigale with the revisions in its design. The more aggressive front fascia with revised fairing and sharper full LED headlamps give the SuperSport 950 an all-new identity. The rest of the motorcycle has got minor tweaks to its design and features list, with the latter now also including a new 4.3-inch full TFT instrument console.
Other features of the Ducati SuperSport 950 include Marzocchi front suspension, Sachs rear suspension, traction control with lean angle sensor, cornering ABS, 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit, bi-directional quick-shifter and wheelie control. The more premium S variant adds in a pillion seat cover and a more sophisticated Ohlin suspension at both front and rear.
Both the variants of the Ducati SuperSport 950 get the same four-stroke, liquid-cooled, L-twin, 937cc engine, but with BS6 emission norms compliance and tweaks to its performance. The result? The engine now produces 110 bhp of maximum power and 93 Nm of maximum torque. Both the variants also ride on the same set of Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tyres over 17-inch wheels.
Like its other motorcycles, Ducati has placed its bet on Pirelli tyres for the SuperSport 950. Here is complete information on the set of Pirelli tyres on which the Ducati SuperSport 950 rolls:
