Ducati SuperSport to be unveiled October 4 at INTERMOT

Published: 30 September 2016

The new Ducati SuperSport will be unveiled at 6pm, Tuesday October 4 as part of the INTERMOT show in Cologne, Germany.

The new bike, which was available to view to show-goers at this year's World Ducati Week, is expected to use a 939cc engine based on that of the current Hypermotard, although Ducati say 80% of the engine has been changed and it will develop around 110bhp.

As is fairly standard for Ducati models, there will be a standard SuperSport as well as a SuperSport S.

When questioned about the new SuperSport by MCN earlier this year, product manager Paolo Quattrino revealed: "The engine is tuned to be really, really smooth because it’s a sportsbike with road focused performance.

"The SuperSport is not an entry-level sportsbike. That would be a bike for beginners, this is not that. This is a sportsbike designed for the road. The dash is completely new, with new functionality, and is ready for the Ducati multimedia system, the same as on the Multistrada."

Ducati will also detail updates to the Multistrada 1200 range, including a new airbox and engine calibration to give the Testastretta DVT engine a fuller mid range. The new Euro4 compliant Monster 821 and Diavel will also be unveiled, alongside minor changes to the 1299 Panigale and 1299 Panigale S, both of which receive the latest version of the Ducati Traction Control system and Ducati Wheelie Control.
