    Ducati Supersport 950 India launch soon

    Ducati recently announced that the 2021 Supersport 950 will go on sale in India soon.

    • Launch expected in September

    • Gets Panigale inspired styling

    • Upgraded electronics

    The Italian two-wheeler company recently revealed that the Supersport 950 is the next motorcycle it will launch in India. Back in January 2021, Ducati announced that it would launch 12 motorcycles in India and the updated Supersport 950 was part of that list. It will follow the Ducati XDiavel that went on sale on August 12. Aside from being BS6-compliant, the 2021 Supersport has quite a few changes over the previous-gen model.

    BS6 Ducati Supersport 950: design and electronics

    To recap, the new Supersport gets the Panigale design treatment to bring it closer to its siblings – the Panigale V2 and the Panigale V4. This includes an aggressive headlight design with the brow-like Daytime Running Lamps and updated bodywork that now include new fins on either side of the headlight.

    It also gets a total of three riding modes – Sport, Touring and Urban – and a bi-directional quickshifter. Other electronics also include a Bosch six-axis IMU and the addition of a new 4.3-inch full-TFT dashboard.

    BS6 Ducati Supersport 950: engine

    The 2021 Supersport 950 remains largely unchanged when it comes to its engine. It continues to be powered by a 110hp, 93.5Nm, 937cc, L-twin engine. The peak power and torque come in at 9,000rpm and 6,500rpm respectively. This engine, however, is now Euro 5 (BS6) compliant and the switch has seen the bike’s weight rise by 1kg to 210kg.

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!

    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.
