    A sports bike that's not a race replica? We put Ducati's new SuperSport models to the test on road and track.

    When Ducati first unveiled its new SuperSport nearly two years ago, I looked at the specs, noted the availability of factory panniers and thought.

    View the discussion thread. Contemporary and iconic, with an essential design, since decades the Monster family combines these elements to sportiness, fun and riding pleasure. Soon I was bombing along straight and narrow two-lane Spanish blacktop at freeway speeds—genuine sport-touring country, and the SuperSport felt right at home. I did not have the opportunity to ride the base model, so all my riding impressions are of the S. ABS has three settings, the least intrusive of which disables rear anti-lock so you can do your best Chaz Davies impression.

    DUCATI SUPERSPORT (on) Review | MCN

    Ducati builds performance machines. All Ducati motorcycles are designed to ooze a little bit of the spirit of Borgo Panigale—performance, passion, and speed. Note the silky white paint on this S, as well as the seat cowl over the pillion pad. Or maybe the one prior to the last one. Or even the one before that. The staff in red even admitted that they all like the name, and appreciate the heritage that the name SuperSport has within the brand.

    But, they were quick to point out that although the concept is similar, the bike breaks new ground. When I think SuperSport I remember the square headlight, mids edition SS models—air-cooled cylinders, clattering dry clutches, and single seats. Ducati has come a long way since then, though. Well beyond the Terblanche-era versions of supersport and into the age of liquid-cooling, adjustable-windshields, and all things electronically adjustable.

    The basic architecture of the SuperSport goes like this: Bolted to the front of that powerplant is a steel-trellis frame, borrowed in part from the Monster but adapted to this platform. Attached to the rear of the engine is a new, single-sided, cast-aluminum swingarm. And lastly, suspending it all is either a Marzocchi 43mm fork and Sachs shock on the base model, or an Ohlins shock and 48mm Ohlins fork on the SuperSport S.

    A base version of the Ducati SuperSport. Info is displayed nicely, but it gets messy when you dig into the menus—easily my least favorite part of the bike. The S model also comes with a seat cowl and suave, white silk paint if you so desire. As simple as it all sounds to bolt these bits together, Lead Engineer Guiseppe Caprara told me the project started around three years ago and has grown slowly into this machine.

    Flying from apex to apex around the Monteblanco Circuit illustrated right away that the riding position is decidedly laid back. The riser clip-ons feel tall and the footrests almost feel low.

    I dragged the pegs once or twice and the muffler a couple of times, but for the most part I wrung the SuperSport out for the better part of an hour and had a blast doing it. The SuperSport handled a morning at Monteblanco brilliantly, and on stock tires, no less.

    ABS has three settings, the least intrusive of which disables rear anti-lock so you can do your best Chaz Davies impression. Braking is done by Brembo M4. ABS level 1 disables rear anti-lock, which means lifting the back end on the brakes or sliding toward apexes.

    Hooning complete, I traded knee pucks for armored denim and the S model in white for the base bike in Ducati red. Soon I was bombing along straight and narrow two-lane Spanish blacktop at freeway speeds—genuine sport-touring country, and the SuperSport felt right at home. Adjusting the windshield up took the windblast from the bottom of my ribcage to the middle of my sternum. The two stages of SuperSport wind protection.

    Notice the trouble Ducati went through to have no visible mechanism. You simply pull up or push down on the screen and it moves. The road twisted up in the foothills and a dropped the windshield into attack position. I had meant to switch the ride mode from Sport to Touring, but the fueling was so smooth that I forgot. I tried Urban, too, incidentally. Plus, Touring is just that good. But honestly, the basic suspension did just fine.
