2021 Ducati SuperSport 950 Now Available In Australia
Ducati Australia & New Zealand say they are pleased to announce the SuperSport 950 is now available to purchase in Australia and New Zealand. Renaming the Ducati road sports bike, the SuperSport 950 features a complete redesign of the fairings to better suit the Ducati range.
Ducati claim the SuperSport 950 is the right bike to bring sporty riding into everyday life, without having to compromise in terms of comfort. For 2021, the model has been revised in design, enriched with electronic equipment and gear, as well as becoming compliant with the Euro 5 anti-pollution laws.

The family aesthetic link between SuperSport 950 and Panigale V4 is now even stronger. The front view is defined by the new full-LED headlight supported by two fins and two air intakes that widen the view. The day time running light echos the front end of the Panigale V4 thanks to a refined lens that diffuses the light evenly. The air vents coming from the water radiator have been inspired by the double extractor of the Panigale V4 models.
The SuperSport 950 has a single-sided swingarm, a trellis frame fixed to the engine that acts as a stressed element to reduce weight and bulk, ergonomics with raised handlebars for greater control of the bike even with a passenger.
A revised seat to maximise rider comfort through greater longitudinal usability, multi-adjustable suspension, three-spoke “Y” aluminium wheels with Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres, radial master-cylinders for brake and clutch and high-performance Brembo braking system with double 320mm disc’s for a dry weight of 184kg.
Electronics is one of the areas most affected by the updates of the new SuperSport 950, equipped with electronic controls based on information from Bosch’s 6-axis inertial platform, which is capable of instantly detecting roll, yaw and pitch angle of the motorcycle.

The electronic package consists of Cornering ABS, Traction Control, Wheelie Control and Electronic Shifting. The adjustment of the electronic settings, as well as the Riding Modes (Sport, Touring, Urban) are all done through the menu on the 4.3in TFT display with an interface that Ducati say is inspired by that of the Panigale.
The SuperSport 950 is available in red and, for those who want a more refined chassis, the S version is available in “Ducati Red” and “Arctic White Silk” which is equipped with fully adjustable Öhlins suspension and passenger seat cover. The 2021 Ducati SuperSport 950 is now available from $19,390 rideaway and the 950S is available from $21,850 rideaway.
