Ducati Supersport S
More sport, every day
As with the standard model, the Ducati Supersport S 939 is an ideal entry into the world of Ducati motorcycles, but it is so much more. Designed as an every day bike for everyday roads. It has a relaxed riding position thanks to the handlebars being positioned above the top yoke. Footrest positioning is also much more relaxed and with the adjustable screen taking the brunt of the windforce off the rider it offers comfort and ease of use.
The Ducati Supersport S model however benefits from the uprated fully adjustable Ohlins suspension. It also comes factory equipped with a quickshifer that works on both up and down shift. (This is an accessory option on the standard model).
The 113bhp engine of the Supersport S has been tuned to supply much of it’s generous torque in the mid range so whether you are on the city, country or open roads, the Supersport S will not only cope but will deliver an exhilirating ride. This middleweight sports bike that has the option of a Semi rigid luggage system stretches the boundaries of practical use. A commuter? A lightweight tourer? Or is it just for fun? We would simply say yes it is.
If you are looking at taking a pillion, under the seat cowl, they too will find a generous rear seat, an equally relaxed footrest position and built in grab handles. Optional accessory grab rails are available for those seeking further security.
The Ducati Safety pack with cornering ABS and 8 level traction control is a standard feature on both the Ducati Supersport and the Supersport S models, as are the power and throttle response changing ride modes.

The Engine – Testastretta 11˚
The SuperSport is powered by a specially adapted version of the already renowned and appreciated 937 cm3 twin-cylinder Ducati Testastretta 11°. Euro 4-rated, it has four valves per cylinder, a secondary air system, liquid cooling, a 12.6:1 compression ratio and bore and stroke measurements of 94 and 67.5 mm respectively. Engine output amounts to a huge 113 hp at 9, 000 rpm and a maximum torque of 96.7 Nm at 6,500 rpm.
On the SuperSport, the Testastretta 11° engine features crankcase and cylinder heads that have been redesigned to make the power unit an integral part of the frame; further modifications include re-routing of the water through the heads and a specifically designed alternator cover to allow installation of the new gear sensor. Large 53 mm throttle bodies – smoothly controlled by the full Ride-by-Wire system – allow the engine to gulp in the air-fuel mix. Moreover, this engine also features unprecedented control and injection systems.
The SuperSport features a strong die-cast aluminium single-sided swingarm that ensures high rigidity, low weight, and excellent stability, providing also a technical and professional look.
The SuperSport incorporates the very latest innovative Ducati technologies, including the famous Ducati branded Riding Modes. The three Riding Modes (URBAN, TOURING, SPORT) are enabled by combining class-leading technologies such as: Ride-by-Wire (RbW), Ducati Traction Control (DTC), multi-calibration 9MP ABS and the graphics on the instrument panel. The rider can change the character of the bike by selecting from the left-hand switchgear – even while riding – among three different pre-set configurations (Riding Modes) that best adapt to the riding style or riding conditions. The Riding Modes make it possible to instantly modify the power delivered by the engine (RbW), the activation levels of DTC and ABS, and the graphics on the instrument panel The Riding Modes are factory pre-set in each of the three parameters, but can be individually customised and saved to suit the rider. A “default” option is available to easily return all settings to factory pre-sets.
Personalise your Style
Thanks to a comprehensive range of versatility-enhancing accessories, the SuperSport is ready to respond to riders’ individual needs. Accessories – already organised in the Sport and Touring packages and also available individually – sharpen the sporting spirit or touring aptitude of the bike. The Sport package includes a type-approved silencer and a complete Ducati Performance racing exhaust system by Akrapovič. Touring accessories, instead, include semi-rigid panniers, an enhanced-protection screen, tank bags and other luggage items plus a selection of seats with different heights.
