2019 SuperSport Ducati Motorcycle Review Specs Price

The 2019 SuperSport Ducati Motorcycle flawlessly mixes sport and comfort to ensure excitement and riding enjoyment. The SuperSport balances comfort with adaptability owing to solutions that make it suited for daily road riding – yet without ever abandoning its sporty character.

Ducati Titanium Grey fairing, Glossy Black wheels, Ducati Titanium Grey frame, fully adjustable 43mm of Marzocchi fork, and adjustable Sachs shock. The lines of the SuperSport produce dynamic forms, visually small and light. The design, athletic and beautiful, blends aspects typical of Ducati sports motorcycles such as the single-sided swingarm, contoured tank and small lateral silencer with two overlapping outlets, which leaves the rear wheel, with its “Y” spoke design, completely visible.

2019 SuperSport Ducati Motorcycle – Features and Price

2019 SuperSport Ducati Motorcycle


The Ducati Design Center has developed a dynamic, refined, aesthetically compact, light bike that is Ducati to the core. A front-on glance indicates a unique ‘family feel’ with the Panigale superbike. In addition to the highly memorable LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), the headlight’s low and high beam parabolas are located in the shadows of the assembly, practically obscuring them from direct frontal view: precisely like those fitted on the top Ducati sports models.

Low-set, sleek and forceful, the SuperSport nose fairing flows seamlessly into the steel fuel tank structure, extending the color scheme into the well-designed cockpit that houses the LCD instrument panel. A sports-style Plexiglas screen with two variable height options guarantees aerodynamically effective airflow shielding.

Seen side-on, the lines, volumes, and proportions are characteristic of Ducati sports motorcycles, with the streamlined tail and sculpted tank playing a vital role. The latter is linked to primary and nose fairings by muscular buttresses that encircle the Trellis frame. Cut to show exhaust manifold and engine, the lower fairing is meant to be easy on the eye, an essential for a Ducati SuperSport.

Ducati’s fastidious attention to technical components is also visible in the small, sports-style stacked dual-pipe side muffler. Shaping and low-slung design bring out the energy of the tail, leaving the rear wheel Y-spokes in plain view and offering enough of place for side panniers (available as extras) (known as accessories).

The single seat, the rider and passenger regions of which are delineated by contrasting stitching and only a hint of a rider “backrest,” is a relaxed ride for everyday usage but also well suited to sports riding. Seen from above, the brand new tank and nose fairing produce, coupled with seat contour, the unmistakable profile shared by the sportiest Ducati bikes.


Utmost care to the ergonomic triangle, aerodynamic protection and the rider’s freedom of movement has resulted in comfort, adaptability and jaw-dropping sports handling experience. The rider zone of the single-piece seat is only 810 mm above the ground, enabling feet to be put firmly on the ground. Handlebar height does not cause unnecessary pressure on the wrists, and footpeg location avoids knees growing weary while optimising control.

The height-adjustable Plexiglas screen can be adjusted to two different settings over 50 mm of travel, offering appropriate airflow protection even at highway speeds; further protection may be gained by adding the bigger Plexiglas touring screen, available as an extra. Comfortably spaced rider and passenger footpegs and a tightly compact lateral silencer guarantee optimum flexibility of movement. The advantages of the riding posture are visible on both ordinary and medium-length travels and provide fun-packed sports riding.

The passenger part of the seat is adequately isolated from the footpegs and includes soft cushioning. Long-distance comfort levels may be given a further boost by selecting a seat with additional cushioning from the large accessory selection; the latter also features exterior passenger grasp rails that provide a more ergonomic grip compared to the basic under-seat ones.


The SuperSport is powered by a specifically customised version of the already recognised and praised 937 cm3 twin-cylinder Ducati Testastretta 11°. 94 and 67.5 mm bore and stroke are the dimensions of the diameter and stroke, respectively, of this Euro 4 certified engine, which features four valves per cylinder, secondary air system and liquid cooling. 113 horsepower at 9,000rpm and 96.7Nm at 6,500 rpm are the engine’s top outputs.

As part of the SuperSport’s Testastretta 11° engine’s upgrades, including rerouting the water through the heads and an alternator cover mainly intended to enable installation of the gear sensor, it has been modified to become a harassed component of the frame. The engine can take in the air-fuel mixture with ease thanks to the Ride-by-Wire system’s flawless regulation of the large 53 mm throttle bodies. Furthermore, this engine is equipped with cutting-edge control and injection mechanisms.

The exhaust system features a 2-1-2 structure with ducts with an exterior diameter of 54 mm, which link a lower pre-silencer to a lateral silencer with two stacked pipes that are exceedingly small.

Every 30,000 kilometers or 12 months, the valve play of the twin-cylinder engine is checked, making maintenance as simple as possible (18,000 miles).

Engine power is delivered via a six-gear transmission, mainly developed for use with Ducati’s cutting-edge Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down unit, which comes as standard on the SuperSport S series and can be acquired as an optional attachment for the SuperSport.

The oil-bath slipper style of clutch has low-effort wire control. Rear-wheel back-torque causes the slipper to engage, lowering disc pressure and ensuring vehicle stability when downshifting in competitive racing.


As a result of Trellis frame design advancements, the engine is used to its most significant potential in the SuperSport. Only the vertical cylinder head is linked to the seat sub-frame, which is also composed of steel, while the other cylinder heads are attached to the main steel frame. SuperSport’s dynamic potential can be unleashed with this configuration, which provides a small, light structure with excellent torsional stiffness. The combination of a lightweight frame and a powerful engine reduces the vehicle’s total wet weight to roughly 210 kg.

For the SuperSport, the 1,478-mm wheelbase contributes to its low weight, outstanding handling, and exceptional drop-in performance while also enhancing stability in corners and at high speeds. The SuperSport’s 180/55 rear tire, for example, does an excellent job of combining excellent handling with an optimized contact patch. The 48-degree lean angle enhances the frame’s performance even more, allowing for almost endless on-road enjoyment.

As an added touch of style, the fork adjusters are visible thanks to cleverly constructed forged aluminium handlebars positioned on the top yoke. The footpegs include die-cast aluminum supports and are designed to provide the best grip possible. It is possible to replace these, however, with rubber-lined pegs for urban riding. Aluminum heel protectors are included with the footpegs for riders. It is possible to remove the rear sub-passenger frame’s pegs to give the bike a more aggressive appearance. In addition to the tool pack, a waterproof USB phone charging port may be found under the seat.


All authentic Ducati sports motorcycles have adjustable suspension and a single-sided die-cast swingarm that is light but incredibly robust, giving the bike a distinctively technical and professional appearance.

In the front, 43 mm Marzocchi forks with preload and rebound damping adjustments are standard fare. The Sachs mono-shock in the rear, which is connected to the vertical cylinder and the swingarm on each end, enables spring pre-load and rebound damping to be adjusted.

Tires and wheels

Alloy wheels measuring 3.50 x 17 in front and 5.50 x 17 at the back give the SuperSport an aggressive appearance. This set of wheels is equipped with 120/70 ZR 17 Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tyres on both the front and back axles. There is a new level of performance for road tires with the direct successor to the previous Diablo Rosso II model, Pirelli Diablo Rosso III. In terms of safety, reaction, and grip, the Diablo Rosso III features the latest-generation materials, innovative construction, compounds, and the tread design that originates straight from the Diablo Supercorsa (also in the wet).

Braking System

The braking system on the SuperSport is quite comparable to that on the most potent sports cars in terms of both technical substance and aesthetic effect. Brembo PR18/1 radial-pump having separate reservoir and adjustable lever powers radial monobloc Brembo M4-32 callipers in the front, which squeeze two 320 mm discs. An 18-inch rear disc is held in place with the help of two Brembo pistons in the SuperSport’s back end. Brembo’s braking system provides strong stopping power with superb linearity. First-rate “fingertip feel” may be achieved because of its responsiveness. System control is handled by the Bosch 9MP ABS, which has three mappings for the brake system.
