Design Concept

The strengths of the Ducati road sports bike have always been the dynamic style, the visual compactness of the volumes and the elegance of the lines with proportions and volumes typical of Panigale sports bikes.

The new SuperSport 950, thanks to the new fairings, acquires more sportiness and fluidity of shapes, as well as a strong and decisive reference to the Panigale V4 thanks to the new full-LED headlight and the new side air vents.

A sharp light signature

The aesthetic link between the SuperSport 950 and the Panigale V4 is even more accentuated in this new version. The full-LED headlamp equipped with DRL immediately recalls the sharp light signature of the Panigale V4, while the fairings have been specially redesigned to highlight the sportiness of the bike and the fluidity of its forms.

SuperSport 950 Technical Data

Overview of SuperSport 950 Engine

Unprecedented control

On the SuperSport 950, the Testastretta 11° engine features crankcase and cylinder heads that have been redesigned to make the power unit an integral part of the frame; further modifications include re-routing of the water through the heads and a specifically designed alternator cover to allow installation of the new gear sensor. Large 53 mm throttle bodies - smoothly controlled by the full Ride-by-Wire system - allow the engine to gulp in the air-fuel mix. Moreover, this engine also features unprecedented control and injection systems.

Slipper clutch

Engine power is transmitted via a 6-speed gearbox with a new gear sensor. This means bikes in the SuperSport 950 range can be equipped with the cutting-edge Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down unit, offered as standard on the SuperSport 950 S series and available as an accessory for the SuperSport 950.

Featuring low-effort wire control, the clutch is of the oil-bath slipper type. The anti-patter function cuts in when the rear wheel exerts back-torque, reducing pressure on the discs to ensure vehicle stability during the aggressive downshifting typical of competitive riding.

Ride by Wire

The Ride-by-Wire (RbW) system is an electronic interface between the twistgrip and engine, which configures an ideal power response depending on the riding mode selected. The twistgrip does not have a throttle cable connected directly to the throttle body butterflies, but instead delivers a signal to a control unit, which in turn operates an electronically controlled butterfly.

The RbW system uses three different mappings to regulate power delivery:
113hp with a sports-type delivery
113hp with a progressive delivery suitable for a more relaxed riding style
75hp with a progressive delivery for city use or on low grip surfaces

Overview of SuperSport 950 Chassis

Single-sided swingarm

The SuperSport 950 features a strong die-cast aluminium single-sided swingarm that ensures high rigidity, low weight, and excellent stability, providing also a technical and professional look.

Brembo brake system

The SuperSport 950 braking system is, in terms of technical content and visual impact, very similar to those seen on the highest performance sports models. At the front, radial monobloc Brembo M4-32 calipers - powered by a Brembo PR18/19 radial pump with separate reservoir and adjustable lever - squeeze two 320 mm discs. At the rear the SuperSport 950 has a 245 mm disc gripped by a 2-piston Brembo caliper. The Brembo system offers powerful braking with excellent linearity between the applied force and actual braking. This translates into ready responsiveness, giving first-rate ‘fingertip feel'. The braking system is controlled by the Bosch 9MP ABS system with 3 mappings.

Pirelli Diablo Rosso III

The wheels mount the new Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tyres, 120/70 ZR 17 at the front and 180/55 ZR 17 at the rear. The Pirelli Diablo Rosso III - the direct successor of the Diablo Rosso II - gives even better sports handling and grip, raising road tyre performance to unprecedented levels. The Diablo Rosso III features new profiles, latest-generation materials, innovative construction, new compounds and a tread pattern that stems directly from the Diablo Supercorsa, ensuring maximum yet long-lasting performance in terms of safety, consistent response and grip (also in the wet).

Y-pattern 3-spoke wheels

The sporty attitude of theSuperSport 950 is emphasized by its very aggressive sport rim design. The bike has Y-pattern 3-spoke wheels in lightweight aluminum.


The 3.5x17 front wheel and 5,5x17 rear wheel are fitted, respectively, with 120/70 ZR and 190/55 ZR Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tyres.

Racing-derived frame

The new SuperSport 950 features a racing derived frame structure that uses the engine as a stressed element. This structure is composed by a compact Ducati trellis directly fixed to the cylinder heads and by the engine itself; the shock-absorber and the rear sub-frame are also connected to the engine. The sub-frame is a classic tubular layout, however, it is enhanced by a unique coupling between the tubes, plastics and tail light. This sophisticated frame structure is lightweight and stiff, allowing the Monster to achieve the lowest curb weight in its category (109Kg/463lb).

Tailored ergonomics

Extreme attentiveness to the ergonomic triangle, aerodynamic protection and the rider's freedom of movement has resulted in comfort, versatility and jaw-dropping sports handling. The rider zone of the one-piece seat is just 810 mm off the ground, allowing feet to be placed firmly on the ground. Handlebar height does not place undue strain on the wrists and foot peg positioning prevents knees becoming tired while maximising control. The height-adjustable Plexiglas screen can be set to two different positions over 50 mm of travel, ensuring adequate airflow protection even at motorway speeds; enhanced protection can be had by fitting the larger Plexiglas touring screen, available as an accessory. Comfortably separated rider and passenger footpegs and a snugly compact lateral silencer ensure maximum freedom of movement.

Adjustable suspension

Like all true Ducati sports bikes, the SuperSport 950 features adjustable suspension and a single-sided die cast swingarm that is light yet extremely rigid, giving the bike a decidedly technical, pro look.

Up front we have 43 mm Marzocchi forks with fully adjustable damping and pre-load. The rear features a Sachs monoshock - attached to the vertical cylinder at one end and the swingarm at the other - which allows for adjustment of spring pre-load and rebound damping.

Overview of SuperSport 950 Equipment

Adjustable windshield

The Plexiglas screen can be adjusted with just one hand; riders can raise it 50 mm and so obtain better airflow protection.

Full-LCD instrument panel

The SuperSport 950's compact instrument panel has lights on the upper part of the dashboard for warnings relating to neutral, indicators, full beams, engine rpm limit, oil pressure and fuel reserve, while the lower part is comprised of an LCD display with a DOT-Matrix area to display all the other data.

The display gives information about speed, rpm. totaliser, trip1 and trip2, engine cooling liquid temperature, ambient temperature, clock and gear engaged. In addition, it displays present fuel leve, fuel consumption, average fuel consumption, average speed and duration of trip. The DOT-Matrix area permanently displays the Riding Mode selected and the corresponding ABS and DTC levels set.

ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) 9MP

The ABS system is the 9MP multi-calibration ABS, meaning the rider has the possibility to switch from one configuration to another by selecting the appropriate Riding Mode. 9MP ABS prevents front and rear wheels from locking, and has refined rear wheel lift-up prevention to offer the shortest stopping distance and high stability by using the information of a sensor measuring pressure at the front wheel caliper. ABS can be deactivated if the rider wishes. ABS-Off can be loaded as a configuration of a riding mode and is maintained after switching the key off.

Ducati Traction Control

Ducati branded DTC offers a choice of eight profiles, or ‘sensitivity levels', each one programmed with a wheel-spin tolerance matched to progressive levels of riding skill, graded from one to eight. Pre-selected levels of intervention are related to appropriate Riding Modes. When DTC is activated, its ECU analyses data sent from front and rear wheel speed sensors to detect the amount of wheel-spin and to evaluate the type of intervention necessary.

This intervention is executed in a very smooth way through electronic retardation of the ignition to reduce the engine's torque, until the full grip of the rear wheel has been re-established. DTC can also be deactivated if the rider wishes.

DTC levels are factory pre-set in each of the three Riding Modes, but can be individually customised and saved to suit the rider. A default option is available to easily return all settings to factory pre-sets.

Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down

Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down is a race-derived electronic system that lets riders up-change and down-change without using the clutch and without having to close the throttle to move up a gear. It consists of a two-way microswitch built into the linkage of the gear change lever; when actuated, it sends a signal to the ECU. The system works differently for upshifts and downshifts, integrating adjustment of spark advance and injection during upshifts with an auto-blipper function during downshifts.

Extent and duration of system operation are designed to ensure seamless gear meshing under all ride conditions; during downshifts the system works in concert with the slipper clutch. Because upshifts can be made under full acceleration without using the clutch, precious fractions of a second that would otherwise be wasted in closing the throttle are gained: moreover, stability is improved as power delivery is absent for less time. Clutchless downshifting allows smooth gear engagement, letting riders focus their attention on braking and corner entry. This system not only enhances the thrill of sports riding: it also lends a welcome hand in city traffic or on winding roads requiring frequent gear changes. Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down comes as standard on the SuperSport 950 S and is available as a an accessory on the SuperSport 950. The control panel is set up to display information relative to the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS), available in the Ducati Performance accessories catalogue.

Headlight with DRL function

The perfect blend of design and technology on the SuperSport 950 is evident in the headlight, which uses low and high beam bulbs and Daytime Running Light (DRL) technology for the side lights.

Ducati guarantees all its bikes for a period of 24 months from registration, with unlimited mileage.
