The new 2021 Ducati SuperSport 950 Sports Motorcycle is among those known for its agility and high-performing ride. The bike features a powerful high-torque engine responsible for leaving everyone behind.
2021 Ducati SuperSport 950 Sports Motorcycle – Features and Specs
Due to Ducati’s significant MotoGP expertise, the Ducati Streetfighter V4 has a front frame that features the Desmosedici Stradale engine as a load-bearing component.
The engine is used as a structural chassis member, a fundamental layout change from traditional frames. The new crankcase also serves as a connection point for the rear suspension and a pivot for the single-sided swing arm. The thick front frame, which weighs only 4kg, is directly attached to the upper crankcase of the front cylinder bank and the cylinder head of the rear bank.
Electronics: Taken from Moto GP Electronics
Streetfighter V4’s state-of-the-art electronic system is built on the 6-axis inertial Measuring Unit (6D IMU), which quickly determines the motorcycle’s roll, yaw, and pitch angles.
Every ride aspect can be controlled via the electronics package: some manage to start, speed and brake. Others manage traction. And yet others help to bend and stretch after turning.
When changing gears around turns, the Panigale V4’s Ducati Quick Shift up / down (DQS EVO 2) makes the most of the bike’s stability by using lane angle data with the DQS EVO 2 up / down function.
Electronic suspension on Ducati (DES)
Desmosedici Stradale EBC (engine brake control) technology was developed to help riders improve the motorcycle’s stability in extreme turning conditions, balancing the power given to the rear tire under challenging engine-braking conditions. ۔
The SuperSport 950 is a real Ducati sports bike with adjustable suspension and a single-sided swing arm made of gravity-cast aluminum, which has the advantages of greater rigidity and less weight and gives the bike a more technical look.
A 43 mm diameter Marzuchi fork is fitted to the front with fully adjusted hydraulics and pre-load. An adjustable spring preload with a Sox Shock Observer and a hydraulic brake mounted on the rear, attached to a vertical cylinder on one side and an arm on the other.
Wheels and Tires
The SuperSport 950’s 3.50 x 17 front and 5.50 x 17 rear three-spoke alloy wheels are designed in a vibrant “Y” pattern. Compatible with 180/55 ZR 17 and 120/70 ZR 17 Pirelli Diablo Rosso® III tire codes. Pirelli Diablo Rosso® III maximizes road tire performance. The Pirelli Diablo Rosso® III guarantees exceptional handling, unsteady grip, and high performance in wet conditions while providing long-lasting and consistent performance during tire life. It is made possible by tire profiles, state-of-the-art materials, innovative structure, two-compound configuration, and a “flash” trade pattern.
Brakes by Brembo
The SuperSport 950’s Brembo brake system is a typical sports model in terms of technical material and aesthetic effect. The Brembo M4-32 monoblock radial calipers are fitted with two 320 mm diameter discs on the front, operated by a separate tank and adjustable lever through the Brembo self-bleeding radial pump. The rear brake of the SuperSport 950 consists of a 245 mm diameter disc, which is closed by two-piston calipers. The Bosch Cornering ABS, which can adjust the amount of interference, controls the braking system.
The Bosch 6-axis inertial platform, used in the SuperSport 950’s dynamics control electronics, allows quick identification of motorcycle rolls, yaws, and pitch angles in space.
DTC EVO, or Ducati traction control
The SuperSport 950’s DTC EVO connects to Bosch’s 6-axis inertial platform, senses the motorcycle’s lean angle at any moment, and uses it to regulate more accurately than conventional traction control, rear tire Interventions required to achieve perfect slip (based on the level of DTC EVO inserted).
Multimedia System for Ducati (DMS)
The Ducati Multimedia System (DMS), which connects your smartphone to the bike via Bluetooth technology, enables you to control certain features via the buttons on the handlebars. This information is displayed on the TFT dashboard. “Music player” instructions, headset connection information, incoming call, message alert signs, and other information appear on the screen. As Ducati performance accessories, DMS SuperSport is offered for a full lineup of 950 models.
Fully colorful TFT devices
A 4.3 “full TFT display is part of the SuperSport 950 family of devices. Panigale family-inspired aesthetics and interface menus make it easy to find, edit settings, and quickly recognize selected riding modes. Thanks to a rating scale that shows whether the change is more focused on performance or vehicle safety/stability, the riding mode editing interface quickly and clearly shows how to adjust the adjustment. It is being done.
Flood light with whole LED and two function modules
The SuperSport 950’s headlamp is a brand new complete LED unit built after rigorous design analysis aimed at enhancing the aesthetic connection with the SuperSports Panigale and making the motorcycle stand out on the road. The front headlamp is identified by LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), which provides maximum visibility to the vehicle throughout the day and, at the same time, reinforces the sense of connection with the Panigale model due to its distinctive design. The DRL has a sophisticated design and a milky stone that spreads light evenly. Two-way LED modules for low and high beams complete the headlamp and give the bike a symmetrical “look” when the lights are on. Due to the integration of two modules in one frame with excellent completion, the value of this technical component is one essence. While rear-facing signals are based on lamps and are interchangeable with LED lights available aftermarket, taillights, license plate lights, and front-turn signals included in rear-view mirrors, all these are LEDs.
Motorcycle riding mode
The Ducati Riding Modes method allows you to choose from pre-set modes of engine settings and electrical controls to suit the personality of the rider and the surrounding conditions. There are three ways to ride the SuperSport 950: Sport, Touring and Urban. Each of these electrical ride-by-wire systems affects the activation of Bosch ABS, DTC, DWC, and DQS up / down interference levels, alternating power, and delivery. Although the parameters associated with each riding mode can be modified by Ducati only when the motorbike is stationary for safety reasons, the riding mode can be changed during the ride by simply pressing the relevant button. Is. With the “Default” option, you can always quickly return to the default settings.
The Game Changer
The 2021 Ducati SuperSport 950 Sports Motorcycle can show its full performance on the road thanks to the sport-riding mode. When the throttle is opened, the engine produces 110 horsepower, with direct ride-by-wire reaction, low DTC system intervention, level 3 Bosch ABS, and medium rear lift control.
