By now you probably know that I really like the 2017 Ducati Supersport and Supersport S. The comfortable sporty-bike that’s equally at home on the racetrack or on a weekend roadtrip, the Supersport combines good looks, sporting chops, and the ergos to stay in the saddle for a while. The best thing about the Supersport is its versatility. Whether it’s playing in the canyons, cutting laps, or simply commuting to and from the office, the Supersport is the kind of bike you might want if you could only have one bike in the garage to do everything.
Power for the Supersport comes from the 937cc Twin also used in the Hypermotard. It’s an engine we love around here, as it delivers enough power to have fun without overwhelming newer riders or boring the more experienced. If Goldilocks rode motorcycles, this might be the engine she’d pick for her bike. Suspension is provided by Marzocchi and Sachs for the standard model, or Ohlins for the upspec S version, and really, both work very well in their roles. But then again, if you’ve already read my review of the Supersport then you’d know that.
Here, then, is what I have to say about the new Ducati Supersport, shot soon after I finished riding both the standard and S version in and around Seville, Spain, including at the Circuit Monteblanco racetrack.
