Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali has revealed a new sport bike in Cologne at Intermot 2016.
Dubbed SuperSport, the model is said to be the first of a series of new bikes from the Bologna-based motorcycle manufacturer.
Domenicali says the bike has been designed for those who want a sport-inspired bike that still provides comfort and easy handling on everyday roads.
Powering the SuperSport is a twin-cylinder 937 cm3 Testastretta 11° engine, delivering 113 hp and 71 lb-ft of torque at 6,500 rpm.
The bike gets three riding modes, namely, Sport, Touring and Urban, as well as a 16-litre fuel tank and height-adjustable screen. Both Bosch ABS and Ducati Traction Control also come as standard.
With a kerb weight of around 210 kg, chassis details include a 1,478 mm wheelbase with 17-inch 3-spoke wheels wrapped in Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tyres. There’s also a Brembo front braking system with two 320 mm discs and M4.32 calipers.
A sportier SuperSport S version, meanwhile, features fully adjustable Öhlins suspension, the Ducati Quick Shift up/down system and a rear seat cover.
The new bike is expected to hit roads in March 2017.
