DUCATI SUPERSPORT S for rental
Ducati SuperSport S motorcycle for hire from RoadTrip
Ducati re-entered the sports touring motorcycle sector with the Ducati SuperSport motorcycle. The SuperSport is based on the 937 cc Testastretta motor and features riding modes, ride by wire technology and a full complement of Ducati sports and touring technology. The SuperSport is set up for the rider to experience an exhilarating, sporty ride without the full-on, prone racing position and flat-out performance of a 959 Panigale. Our SuperSport is the higher specification “S” model.
The SuperSport ‘S’ specification
The RoadTrip ‘S’ version of the Ducati SuperSport features upgrades including 48 mm Öhlins forks and front suspension and an Öhlins monoshock with integrated gas cartridge, both are fully adjustable. The SuperSport S is also fitted with the Ducati Quick Shifter (DQS) up/down. This electronic system enables clutch-free gear shifting both up and down the 6-speed gearbox. This is a bonus for sport riding and winding roads, as well as town traffic. A matched passenger seat cover completes the ‘S’ specification for a single rider.
The 937 cc Testastretta 11˚ L twin motor
The SuperSport is powered by a specially adapted version of the acclaimed 937 cc Ducati Testastretta 11°, liquid cooled motor. This engine first appeared in the 2016 Ducati Hypermotard family. Its output is a meaty 113 bhp at 9,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 96.7 Nm at 6,500 rpm. On the SuperSport, the crankcase and cylinder heads of the Testastretta motor have been redesigned to make the engine an integral part of the trellis frame.
The new SuperSport frame uses the engine as a stressed element. A compact, tubular trellis bolts directly to the cylinder heads, and the shock-absorber and the rear sub-frame are also attached to the engine case.
The SuperSport incorporates the latest, innovative Ducati technologies including three switchable riding modes (URBAN, TOURING, SPORT). These riding modes instantly modify the power delivered by the engine, the activation levels of DTC and ABS, and even the graphics on the instrument panel.
Ducati Tailored ergonomics
Ducati has aimed to balance sporting performance with comfort. The riding position is intended to provide great sports handling and aerodynamic protection. Handlebars position, seat height (810 mm) and foot pegs ensure that the ride is roomy, not too hard on the wrists, and low enough to accommodate riders of most heights.
Brembo & Bosch ABS brake system
The SuperSport braking system is the same as used on the Panigale V2. Radial monobloc Brembo M4-32 callipers and twin 320 mm discs at the front, and the SuperSport has a 245 mm disc and a 2-piston Brembo calliper at the rear. This translates into ready responsiveness, and first-rate ‘fingertip feel’. The braking system is controlled by the Bosch 9MP ABS system with 3 maps that correspond to the SuperSport’s riding modes.
RoadTrip’s Ducati SuperSport S is set up for a single rider and finished in Ducati Racing Red. This RoadTrip motorcycle rental is available with matched luggage and satnav.
