For many, Ducati is synonymous with racing. Nearly everyone in the motorcycle world instantly recognizes the bike as it zips around the racetrack in its gleaming Italian Rosso Corsa livery. That’s true, and Ducati knows it, but they also know that not every rider is into hardcore racing his Panigale. The SuperSport 950 is a track-ready sportbike with all the tech of the 2023 model year, but primarily a sportbike with a few amenities to make it a bit more accessible to those who ride it on the road.
The SuperSport 950 package has changed very little over the years, but that doesn’t really matter, it’s a great platform that works for a wide range of riders. The Supersport is powered by his 937cc L-twin that makes 110 horsepower and 69 lb-ft of torque. Traditionally, supersport engines use desmodromic valves.
The Supersport is really eye-catching, as is its performance. It features key design cues from the Panigale brothers, such as full LED headlights and integrated air vents. The seat position isn’t as aggressive as the bigger Ducatis, so it’s comfortable to ride on long tours, but a racing seat position is also possible if needed. This bike has a lightweight trellis frame and a slim aluminum cantilever swingarm. On the other side of the swingarm is a low-mount dual-can exhaust.
The 2023 SuperSport 950 is available in his two different trim levels, the Base 950 Package and the Premium ‘S’ Package. The base model is very capable, with several driving modes, a full-color display, a two-way quickshift lever, and more. The upgraded S package costs an additional $2,500 (CAD $2,900) and offers buyers extras such as front and rear Öhlins suspension and rear seat trim. In addition to the standard Ducati Red, the ‘S’ package also offers an exclusive Arctic White Silk. The base model is only available in red color.
Prices for the 2023 Ducati SuperSport 950 start at $15,195 / $17,195 CAD.
