The Perfect Blend Of Performance and Practicality: The Supersport 950 / 950 S
The Ducati Supersport 950 is once again available as part of the 2021 Ducati line-up, but with no noticeable upgrades over last year. It still remains as a strong entry-level Ducati motorcycle that offers serious sports performance but in a more restrained and compact package than the class-leading V4 machines.
For 2021, the Supersport 950 is available in two flavors: the Supersport 950 and the Supersport 950 S. Both models share the same Italian-made 937cc Testastretta 11-degree twin-cylinder engine. The power is rated at 110 horsepower, with 69 lb-ft of peak torque available. Both models also share the same riding aids and electronics, including selectable riding modes, power modes, advanced cornering ABS, traction control, a bi-directional quick shifter, and more.
The most significant difference between the models is the suspension. The standard Supersport 950 uses Marzocchi forks and a Sachs shock, while the 950 S uses fully-adjustable Öhlins suspension at the front and rear. The 950 S also benefits from a passenger seat cowl.
For 2021, the Supersport 950 is available in Ducati Red. The higher-spec Supersport 950 S is available in a choice of Ducati Red or an exclusive Arctic White color scheme.
The 2021 Ducati Supersport 950 starts at $13,495 USD / $15,395 CAD.
