The Ducati SuperSport is one of the most sensual-looking motorcycles ever made by the Italian bike manufacturer. In fact, it even won the ‘Most Beautiful Bike Of the Show’ at the 2016 EICMA. Now, Ducati has updated the SuperSport with a new matte-finish Titanium Grey colour. Along with the frame, the wheels too get the red colour treatment and enhances the sporty stance of the motorcycle. The optional pillion seat cover and the panniers will also be offered in this colour, says the company.
The new colour will be available in the international market from July, and its prices will remain unchanged too. Currently, it retails at £11,795 (around Rs 10.57 lakh) in the UK. In India, the SuperSport retails at Rs 12.04 lakh (ex-showroom India) for the Ducati Red variant. The SuperSport S variant will continue to be available in Star White Silk and Ducati Red. Here’s Ducati’s official statement on the new colour variant:
Ducati presents a new colour scheme for the SuperSport range
Borgo Panigale (Bologna, Italy), 19 June 2018 – Ducati springs forward to 2019, with the presentation of the new and stylish colour scheme for the SuperSport which will be available with a matt Titanium Grey fairing paired with red wheel rims and frame.
The new colour scheme, which combines a sporty style with an elegant look, is a reinterpretation of the colours that characterised some of Ducati's most iconic sports models in the past. The SuperSport says goodbye to the traditional Ducati Red and debuts with the new Titanium Grey with a matt finish which is made yet more attractive and unique by the red of the frame and wheel rims. The rear seat cover will also be available in the same colour combination, as will the plastic inserts decorating the side panniers, both items featuring among the wide range of Ducati Performance accessories (pictured below).
The SuperSport S, fitted with Öhlins suspension, Ducati Quick Shift up/down and rear seat cover, will continue to be available in Ducati Red as well as in the much-loved combination of Star White Silk, with red wheel rims and frame.
The new colour scheme will be available starting from July at Ducati Stores. The price of the SuperSport range remains unchanged.
The Ducati SuperSport is the bike for those eager to ride sports-style on everyday roads. Fun and versatile with true Ducati sports styling and zest, the SuperSport makes riders feel like racers. Equipped with a 937 cm3 twin-cylinder Testastretta 11° engine, it delivers 110 HP and a full yet linear torque curve. While a mean lean road machine, the SuperSport has decidedly approachable feel thanks to easy handling, the confidence-inspiring Ducati Safety Pack (Bosch ABS + Ducati Traction Control), the awesome price-quality ratio of the equipment and the long maintenance intervals.
