The Ducati Supersport is an interesting proposition in the bikemaker's lineup.
Like we mentioned before, the Supersport 950's styling now looks more in line with the Italian marquee's other faired offerings, courtesy its Panigale V4 inspired styling.

The chassis and frame of the 2021 Ducati Supersport 950 models remain unchanged. The bellypan too, extends much further back than before to further enclose the power unit.
The SuperSport's plastics have been reshaped with fins and scoops that give a sportier look and also control air flow around the rider better.
The Supersport 950 uses the same 937cc, twin-cylinder engine that is offered on the Multistrada 950. It still makes the same 110hp at 9000rpm and 69lbft at 6500rpm. It gets riding modes which include Sport, Touring and Urban.More news: BTS drops teaser video for upcoming song 'Life Goes On'
Apart from the new styling updates, the bike has also received a set of updated features including a six-axis IMU that's used to gauge the motorcycle's lean, pitch, and yaw measurements.
The bike has received a new 4.3-inch full-TFT instrument cluster and also comes in an S version.
The list of electronic aids on the Panigale V4 SP includes the latest-gen Ducati Traction Control EVO 3 (DTC EVO 3), Ducati Slide Control (DSC), Ducati Wheelie Control EVO (DWC EVO), Ducati Power Launch (DPL), Ducati Quick Shift up / down EVO 2 (DQS EVO 2), Engine Brake Control EVO (EBC EVO) and Ducati Electronic Suspension EVO (DES EVO). It also includes Ducati's "DMS" multimedia system that ties in with smartphones via Bluetooth to give music controls and information on the dash, plus call and message notifications.More news: Liverpool fans react as Pep Guardiola signs new deal at Man City
The aim of the Italian firm, in the looks department, has been to bring the Super Sport 950 in-line with its larger siblings, much like what it did with the V2 previous year. The SuperSport 950 S version gets an uprated, fully-adjustable Öhlins suspension setup, a passenger seat cover and the Ducati "Red Tag" on the wheels.
The bike comes equipped with a 43 mm Marzocchi fork up front and a Sachs monoshock at the rear.More news: Floyd Mayweather Slams Logan Paul After Disrespectful Interview
