SuperSport 950


The Supersport 950 technology

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 electronic package of the SuperSport 950 consists of:

ABS Cornering Bosh

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.

Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO

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).

Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO

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.

Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down EVO

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.

Ducati Riding Mode

The SuperSport 950 is equipped with three Riding Modes, called Sport, Touring and Urban. Each of these acts on the Ride-by-Wire electronic system, altering power and delivery, the intervention levels of Bosch ABS, DTC, DWC and the activation of DQS up/down.

Full-TFT colour instrumentation

The instrumentation of the SuperSport 950 family includes a 4.3'' full-TFT display. The graphics and interface, inspired by those of the Panigale family, make it easy to navigate the menu, adjust settings and more immediately identify the selected Riding Mode. The Riding Mode adjustment interface immediately and clearly displays how the settings are being made, thanks to an explanatory graphic of the system being worked on and a graduated scale that indicates whether the change is more oriented towards performance or vehicle safety/stability.

Full-LED floodlight with bi-function modules

The headlight of the SuperSport 950 is a full-LED unit, the result of a careful design study with the aim of strengthening the aesthetic link with the super-sports Panigale and making the bike immediately recognizable on the roads. The front headlight is characterized by the LED daytime running lights (DRL), which guarantee perfect visibility of the vehicle during the day and, at the same time, thanks to the particular shape, reinforce the family feeling with the Panigale model. The DRL has a refined construction with an opal that diffuses the light evenly.

The headlamp is completed by two bi-function LED modules for low beam and high beam that allow the bike to have a symmetrical "look" when the lights are on. The two modules are embedded in a frame with a brilliant finish which gives this technological component the preciousness of a jewel. The taillight, the license plate lights and the front turn signals, integrated in the rear-view mirrors, are LED, while the rear ones are lamp-based, replaceable with LED lights available as an accessory.

Ducati Multimedia System (DMS)

The TFT dashboard is designed to display information from the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS) which, after connecting your smartphone to the bike via Bluetooth technology, allows you to manage certain functions by means of buttons on the handlebar. The display shows the commands of the “music player”, and icons for headset connection status and incoming call and received message alerts. The DMS is available for the entire SuperSport 950 range as a Ducati Performance accessory.
