On the other hand, the SuperSport S comes with a fully-adjustable Ohlins suspension, up/down quickshifter as well as a rear seat cover. The latter is optionally available for the base SuperSport.
Equipment-wise, the SuperSport comes with LED daytime running lights, full-LCD instrument panel, adjustable Plexiglass windscreen, underseat USB port and Ducati Safety Pack comprising of ABS and traction control. The bike rides on Pirelli Diablo Ross III tyres measuring 120/70 ZR17 at the front and 180/55 ZR17 at the rear.
