New SuperSport 950

Engine

Always ready for excitement

With the arrival of 2021 the 937 cm3 Testastretta 11° engine becomes compliant with the Euro 5 anti-pollution regulations. (Only for countries where Euro 5 standard applies.) 

The interventions on the exhaust system and the engine control system have not changed its character from the full-bodied delivery at all revs, 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.

Testastretta 11°

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.

Ducati Quick Shift (DQS)

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.

Hydraulic clutch command

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.

Maintenance intervals

The Ducati twin has maintenance intervals every 15,000 km, or 12 months, with valve clearance checks every 30,000 km.

Power and torque curves

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.
