The 2021 Ducati SuperSport 950 is finally set to make a grand entry into the Indian motorcycle scenes. The automaker has confirmed that this supersport bike will be launched in India on September 9, 2021. It is already getting the same hype as the 2022 Kawasaki Ninja 650 launch garnered.

The 2021 Ducati SuperSport 950 will have a prominent design update, taking inspiration from the bigger legendary Panigale V4, especially the fairing design. Even the DRL design on the headlamps is similar to its big brother. Air ducts are integrated into the fairing to keep the engine heat away from the rider’s legs. There are air-intakes near the headlamps housing to channel cool air to the engine. The new cluster as a whole makes for better aerodynamics.

Aesthetically, the motorcycle will get 43 mm Marzocchi USD forks and a Sachs mono-shock for the suspension setup. However, the range-topping 950 S will get chunkier 48 mm Ohlins front forks and Ohlins mono-shock. Two 320 mm Brembo brakes will handle braking duties up front and 245 mm (Brembo) at the rear. The 17-inch wheels will get a 120 mm tyre upfront and 180 mm at the rear, both to be Pirelli Diablo Rosso III.

The changes continue to the electronics too since the motorcycle gets a full TFT 4.3-inch display console. Apart from just there, there will be pretty impressive electronics as well. The 2021 Ducati SuperSport 950 will feature traction control, wheelie control, quick-shift and a Bosch Cornering ABS. The engine performance can be controlled via three riding modes - Touring, Urban, and Sport.

And while the 937cc Testastretta engine might look similar to the Multistrada 950, there are subtle changes in the output. The new engine is now BS6 compliant and churns out 110 bhp of max power at 9,000 RPM and 93 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 RPM.

There has been no official word about the pricing yet, though we can expect it to have a starting price tag of Rs. 13 lakhs.

Between going to pre-school and setting off for work every morning, my fascination for automobiles never ceased. Nothing excites me more than the sound of tyres screeching and engines revving.
