Panigale Flavor Without Superbike Danger

It had been four years in the making, but Ducati finally released the revamped SuperSport family for the 2017 model year. This range brings sportbike handling and performance to the table with its race-inspired “Monster” frame and over 100 ponies on tap, but in a package meant to be less intimidating to prospective ’Ducatisti’ than some of their, shall we say, spicier models. The factory touts the new line as “versatile and accessible,” and while the base SuperSport is meant to appeal to riders who want a sportbike that’s a little light on the “sportier aspects,” the “S” model takes on some of the trappings of a proper racebike for a decidedly more sport-tastic nature. Let’s check out what the bike builders in Bologna have in store for us with this newest effort.

If Ducati makes a mid-weight SuperSport, this is how it will look

If Ducati makes a mid-weight SuperSport, this is how it will look

OBIBOI gives us this rendering tickling our brains

The history of Ducati is driven by a unique engineering talent that has always generated motorcycles of unmistakable design and most profound sporting spirit. Throughout their 90 years, the Bologna firm has created machines showcasing passion, emotions, and excellence. Be it their Panigales’, Scramblers’ or the very recent SuperSport 939. But the Italian maker hasn’t had any footfall in the mid-segment supersport arena because they pretty much did not give a damn.

But imagining them do it is going to bring a lot of sleepless nights to the Japanese players who have taken the top slots to the throne in the 600cc-800cc segment. There are no official word or snippets from anywhere suggesting this might happen, but this did not stop our friend Oberdan Bezzi to sketch this potent machine that can come out of the Borgo Panigale factory gates.

2018 Ducati 939 SuperSport

2018 Ducati 939 SuperSport

A Panigale with toned down feistiness

Ducati always has had this insanity in them to time and again bring up machines that push the boundaries of two-wheeled glory, a boundary that will make every other manufacturer look like a speck of dust. For this alone, we must hand it to the Italian with all pomp and flair that they can literally pull off a true bloody special edition.

When it comes to sports bikes with full fairings, there are not many chaps in the world who make them better than these Italians. The Panigale, for instance, is the most coveted superbike for the way it looks, handles and rides. It is one of those Italian Exotics that can sweep you off your feet every time you get yourself near it. And if you do ride one, you know what a fearless machine it is, always wanting to break your spine due to the insanity, unless you tame it.

The current generations of Panigale is a bit intimidating and out-of-reach for a majority of buyers, due to its big and powerful engine and large denominations, in particular for riders who are new to the big bike world. It seems that Ducati has understood this fact, which is why it has come up with the all-new Supersport series, the re-entry of the brand into the family of Ducati. It takes in the 937 Testastretta motor and gets bolted on a relaxed sports bike trellis frame and gets the power lower in the rev range.

Ducati Reveals New SuperSport Line

Ducati Reveals New SuperSport Line

Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali presented his Bologna, Italy-based company’s new line of streetbike at the INTERMOT motor show in Cologne, Germany during the press event on October 4th, 2016. Officially dubbed the “SuperSport,” this new line is built for sportbike fans who are looking for that definitive Ducati style with a somewhat relaxed and easy-to-get-along-with demeanor.

2002 Ducati 1000 SS Corsa

2002 Ducati 1000 SS Corsa

The Ducati 1000 SS Corsa is an evolution from the Italian bike maker’s 900 SS, resulting in a bike that came powered with a 992 cc fuel-injected two-valve engine. This bike was capable of producing 84 horsepower with a top speed of 134 mph. Quite a quick runner, isn’t it?

The bike that was on bid at the 2012 RM Auctions in Monaco carried a simpler fairing, one that was based on the Supersport that ran from 1990 to 1997. It may look like a throwback to the 851/888, but the tank and seat are from an earlier SS.

The mileage on the bike is unknown, but this racing motorcycle, prepared by Carlo Saltarelli, was intended for privateers and is presented in good original condition with a Conti exhaust and presentable paintwork.

It would make for an exciting track day racer despite not carrying any racing history. The bid price for the bike was at €5,000 - €7,000, which is around $6,300 to $8,800 based on current exchange rates. Actual selling price was $3,030.

1992 Ducati 350 Super Sport

1992 Ducati 350 Super Sport

Exclusively sold in Italy to go with other Super Sport models, the Ducati 350 Super Sport was built as a smaller displacement model from 1989 to 1993 and traces its lineage to Ducati’s highly popular 900 cc Super Sport.

The 350 Super Sport was far from a slouch; it was powered by a 341 cc SOHC Desmo V-twin engine that was mated to a five-speed transmission, producing a stout 27 horsepower. Despite the svelte and sporty look, the 350 Super Sport was actually considered an economical bike, at least compared to the 400 cc Super Sport that was released in Japan and Germany until 1995 and the 600 cc Super Sport that was in production from 1993-1997.

The Ducati 350 Super Sport that was auctioned off at the 2012 RM Auctions in Monaco came in original condition, complete with a nice red paint finish. However, the bike was also noted as "needing some work," which probably explains why it only sold for €585 ($750), a number that’s far below its pre-auction estimated price of €2,800 - €3,800 ($3,600 - $4,900).

Video: Keira Knightley drives the Ducati 750 Sport for Chanel

Video: Keira Knightley drives the Ducati 750 Sport for Chanel

Chanel’s new marketing campaign for the Coco Mademoiselle perfume just got that much hotter with the addition of a suited up Keira Knightley mounted atop a Ducati 750 Sport. This video is just a ’teaser’ of the new Coco Mademoiselle film ’Gabrielle’ directed by Joe Wright. The full length version will debut on March 21st, 2011 on the Chanel website.

TheDucati 750 Sport is powered by a V2, four-stroke engine that delivers a total of 72 HP and sprints the bike all the way to 128.6 mph. Typically, we like our Ducati bikes in red, but the model used in this commercial is covered in a drab beige, no doubt to promote Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle perfume. Keira Knightley is even wearing a smoking hot beige leather catsuit to match. All we can say is that we can’t wait for the full video to be released!
