The Ducati SuperSport 950 and 950 S are equipped with disc brakes, along with Bosch Cornering ABS, Ducati Traction Control, and Ducati Wheelie Control. Suspension duties on the 950 are handled by 43mm Marzocchi inverted front forks and a Sachs-sourced mono-shock unit on the rear. The 950 S gets 48mm Ohlins upside-down forks on the front and an Ohlins mono-shock unit on the rear.
In the UK, the new Ducati SuperSport 950 carries a price-tag of £12,295 (roughly Rs. 12.7 lakh), while the 950 S variant is priced at £14,095 (approximately Rs. 13.84 lakh). The duo is expected to make its way to India sometime in 2021.
