The SuperSport 950 is powered by the 937 cc Ducati Testastretta 11° twin-cylinder engine.Read more
The SuperSport 950 is powered by the 937 cc Ducati Testastretta 11° twin-cylinder engine. The interventions on the exhaust system and the engine control system have not changed its character and the maximum power and torque values, which are confirmed respectively as 110 hp at 9,000 rpm and 93 Nm at 6,500 rpm. The engine breathes thanks to throttle bodies with a diameter of 53 mm controlled by a full Ride-by-Wire system. It has four valves per cylinder, secondary air system, liquid cooling, compression ratio of 12.6:1, bore and stroke measurements of 94 and 67.5 mm, respectively.
To increase engine performance, or simply for a sportier look, two Akrapovic® titanium systems are available as accessories: an approved exhaust with carbon fibre heat shield and a racing exhaust that reduces weight by – 4.6 kg and increases power at mid-range by + 5%.
The gearbox is six-speed with a specific gear sensor,Read more
The gearbox is six-speed with a specific gear sensor, which allows the SuperSport 950 range to be fitted as standard with the advanced Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up / down EVO. The clutch is in an oil bath with interlocking and anti-hopping system and is operated by the new hydraulic control with a self-bleeding radial pump equipped with an adjustable lever. The anti-hopping function intervenes when the torque at the wheel has an opposite action and reduces the pressure on the discs that allows you to maintain the stability of the vehicle in aggressive downshifts typical of sporty riding.

The twin-cylinder Ducati Testastretta 11° engine develops a full and full-bodied torque curveRead more
The twin-cylinder Ducati Testastretta 11° engine develops a full and full-bodied torque curve over the entire range of use, for an always prompt response to any touch of the throttle, a fundamental feature for a motorcycle with a mainly road use.
At 3,500 rpm, 80% of maximum torque is already available, and as the rpm increases the torque value grows decisively and linearly, reaching a peak of 93 Nm at 6,500 rpm. After this threshold, the torque curve gradually decreases, remaining at a value above 90% up to 9,000 rpm, the speed at which the maximum power of 110 hp is delivered.
In road use this translates into a high reserve of power at all speeds, with rapid acceleration out of corners and reduced use of the gearbox.
The maximum power of 110 hp is fully usable on the road without great commitment on the part of the rider who will experience the pleasant sensation of always having full control of the bike.
The engine management and injection systems have been developed to enhance the characteristics of the twin-cylinder unit, considering the type of use of the SuperSport. The electronic throttle control is precise in transmitting the rider’s requests to the engine, followed by a soft and always predictable response, which perfectly complies with the versatility of use of the SuperSport.

The electronic package of the SuperSport 950 consists of:
The SuperSport 950 is equipped with modern and refined dynamics control electronics, based on the use of Bosch’s 6-axis inertial platform capable of instantly detecting roll, yaw, and pitch angles of the bike in space.
The operating parameters of each control are associated by default to the three Riding Modes (Sport, Touring, Urban). The rider is given the opportunity to customize his own riding styles and to restore the parameters set by Ducati.
The SuperSport 950 is equipped with a Brembo braking system managed by Bosch 9.1 MP ABSRead more
The SuperSport 950 is equipped with a Brembo braking system managed by Bosch 9.1 MP ABS with multiple calibration and integrated pressure sensor. Bosch 9.1 MP ABS stops the wheels from locking and prevents the rear from lifting, ensuring the shortest stopping distance and greater stability.
The 3-level adjustment allows you to switch from one level to another by selecting the desired Riding Mode to have the optimal setting in any riding conditions.
Level 1 is recommended for high-grip surfaces, in this configuration the Bosch ABS offers track performance, intervenes only on the front with non-active cornering function and does not include the activation of the rear anti-lift function; level 1 by default is not linked to any Riding Mode, if the rider wishes he can associate it to the Riding Mode he prefers by entering the specific menu.
With level 2, Bosch ABS is also active on the rear wheel and the anti-lift control is enabled.
Level 3 corresponds to the maximum degree of intervention on braking and lifting the rear.
The DTC EVO that equips the SuperSport 950 interfaces with Bosch’s 6-axis inertial platform,Read more
The DTC EVO that equips the SuperSport 950 interfaces with Bosch’s 6-axis inertial platform, measuring the lean angle of the motorcycle at any time and using it to manage with greater accuracy, compared to a traditional traction control, the required intervention to ensure the ideal slip of the rear tyre (based on the level of DTC EVO inserted).
The Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO added to the standard equipment of the SuperSport 950Read more
The Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO added to the standard equipment of the SuperSport 950 enhances its sporty soul. This control manages the wheelie and allows you to obtain maximum acceleration performance with ease and safety. Thanks to the information provided by Bosch’s 6-axis inertial platform, the DWC EVO more accurately detects the presence and extent of wheelies and intervenes to control them with a greater level of precision, so as to satisfy the rider’s requests even more precisely.
The DQS EVO with up / down function, in addition to minimizing shift times,Read more
The DQS EVO with up / down function, in addition to minimizing shift times, allows you to downshift without using the clutch, ensuring even more effective braking. The system acts separately for upshifting and downshifting: in upshift the system intervenes on ignition and injection advance, in downshift it also manages the controlled opening of the throttle valve, thanks to the integration with the full Ride-by-Wire system. The DQS EVO also exploits information on the lean angle to maximize the stability of the bike during the shifting phase when cornering.
The Ducati Riding Modes strategy allows you to choose between different pre-set modes of the engineRead more
The Ducati Riding Modes strategy allows you to choose between different pre-set modes of the engine parameters and electronic controls to adapt the character of the bike to the rider’s style and environmental conditions. The SuperSport 950 is equipped with three Riding Modes, called Sport, Touring and Urban. Each of these acts on the electronic Ride-by-Wire system, modifying power and delivery, on the intervention levels of Bosch ABS, DTC, DWC and on the activation of the DQS up / down.
The Riding Mode change can be easily carried out while riding by pressing the appropriate button, while the customization of the parameters originally associated by Ducati with each Riding Mode can only take place when the motorcycle is stationary for safety reasons. You can always easily restore the initial settings through the “default” option.
Sport The Sport Riding Mode allows the SuperSport 950 to express its full potential on the road. The engine delivers 110 hp with a direct Ride-by-Wire response when the throttle is opened, low intervention by the DTC system, level 3, Bosch ABS at level 2, with medium rear lift control.
Touring The Touring Riding Mode guarantees the best balance between performance and comfort. The engine provides full power (110 hp), with a progressive response of the Ride-by-Wire when the throttle is opened, medium intervention of the DTC system (level 4) and the Bosch ABS at level 3 to guarantee maximum control and braking stability.
Urban The Urban Riding Mode is designed for low-grip surfaces. Power is limited to 75 hp with a progressive response of the Ride-by-Wire when the throttle is opened, the DTC has an even more consistent intervention (level 6) while the Bosch ABS maintains the setting at level 3.
