【全球新聞】Ducati Considering SuperSport Model - ar.long - 三咪重型機車貿易organization

 

One of the cooler parts that comes from running Asphalt & Rubber is the feedback we get from our Bothan spy network that read the site. No sooner did we publish Luca Bar’s renders of his Ducati SuperSport concept, did we get tips that Ducati was actually currently considering such a model for its future model road map. There’s no doubt that the SS line had a cult following in its day, and the fact still remains that Ducati does not have a “tamer sport bike” in its line that would appeal to the veteran Ducatisti.

Sure, there’s the stripped-down 1098 superbike Streetfighter, but the streetfighter genre is a young man’s game, and the case can be made that an SS owner and a Streetfighter owner are two very different people. The same can be said for the Monster’s core constituency, which the SuperSport would likely share pieces with from the common parts bin. Ducati also has the Diavel and Multistrada 1200 as alternatives for the torture rack Superbike series, but again the issue is that the owners of those bikes are likely different buyers than the ones found in the SuperSport’s air-cooled sweet spot.

Likely to be based off the Monster’s two-valve air-cooled motor, we could see Ducati hot rodding the 100hp DesmoDue to a more stout spec…say 110hp or so, which thus also helps differentiate it from the Monster line, and emphasizing the sportiness of the bike. We doubt such a model will debut at EICMA this year, but we’ll be keeping our ears out as to whether this project gets some legs and enters the development stage.

Ducati Supersport Concept by Luca Bar - ar.long - 三咪重型機車貿易organization

 

Tracing back to when Ducati made the SS line, Luca Bar has put pen to pad again, rendering a modern-day version of the Ducati Supersport. Envisioning a motorcycle based off Ducati’s popular Monster 1100 EVO platform, the Supersport would feature the same 1,078cc air-cooled two-valve v-twin motor of the Monster, which should provide plenty of power and take some design cues from the top-spec naked bike. Bar also points out that using the Monster as the basis for the Supersport could help keep costs down as well, and keep the MSRP close to the Monster 1100 EVO (we’d imagine pricing would have the SS as slightly pricier than the Monster).

The idea of a Ducati Supersport is an interesting one, as the model already has a rich history with the Italian company. With the Ducati Superbike 1199 coming out later this year, and a revision to the Streetfighter model also expected, it’s a thin line where the Supersport could fit into Ducati’s lineup. Sportier than the Monster, but not as sporty as the Superbike, and unlike the Streetfighter with its liquid-cooled motor, there could be enough differentiation from the Monster, Streetfighter, and Superbike to justify the Supersport in Ducati’s repertoire.

The catch will be on whom Ducati sees buying such a model, as the company has lately been going after customer demographics that currently are not in the Bologna brand’s core constituency. Perhaps an answer to what an aging sportbiker would ride, the Supersport could cannabalize on sales for the Diavel and Multistrada 1200 (which are currently serving this need in the Ducati brand), though it could also provide an avenue for an older rider to own a more comfortable, but still racy Italian rocket (arguably something the Diavel and MTS 1200 are not).

It’s certainly a concept to ponder, and as usual, Luca makes the machine look enticing. Will Ducati make on though? Only time will tell.
