The seat, revised in the padding, improves comfort in road use. The improvement in comfort also passes through the new more effective heat guards, which shield the exhaust manifolds and the fresh air vents for the rider's legs obtained in the fairings.
The portion of the seat reserved for the passenger is well spaced from the footrests and is adequately padded. To increase comfort, it is possible to choose from the Ducati Performance accessories range a seat with greater padding (+25 mm) for rider and passenger, suitable for longer journeys, and external passenger handles, which offer a more ergonomic grip than the standard ones integrated into the under-seat.
The new SuperSport 950 is equipped with a trellis frame that uses the engine as a structural element of the chassis. The main steel trellis is connected to the cylinder heads, while the rear seat post subframe, also in steel, is fixed to that of the vertical cylinder.
This configuration allows for a very compact, light frame with high torsional rigidity, a perfect feature to enhance the dynamic qualities of the SuperSport 950. The configuration of the frame with supporting engine contributes to having a curb weight of 210 kg, 1 kg. less than the first SuperSport.
Single sided swingarm
As a true Ducati sports bike, the SuperSport 950 is equipped with adjustable suspension and single-sided swingarm in gravity cast aluminum, which has characteristics of high rigidity and low weight, giving the bike a technical and professional look.
The front is equipped with a 43 mm diameter Marzocchi fork, fully adjustable in hydraulics and preload. The rear has a Sachs shock absorber, fixed to the vertical cylinder on one side and to the single arm on the other, with adjustment of spring preload and hydraulic brake in extension.
The SuperSport 950 S is equipped with refined, multi-adjustable Öhlins suspension. At the front there is a fork with 48 mm diameter stanchions, with TiN treatment for maximum smoothness, and at the rear an Öhlins monoshock, fully adjustable, with integrated gas tank.
The chassis equipment of both versions can be completed with an adjustable Öhlins steering damper.
With the new updates the SuperSport 950 becomes sportier in appearance, more fun to ride and even easier, safer, and more comfortable thanks to a richer standard equipment.
