Ducati to reveal new SuperSport at INTERMOT

BORGO PANIGALE, BOLOGNA, ITALY - September 30, 2016 

On the eve of INTERMOT 2016 in Cologne (Germany) October 5 - 9, Ducati will preview some of its latest developments for 2017 and has confirmed that the eagerly awaited SuperSport will be on display. The unveiling scheduled to take place on the Ducati stand (Hall 8, Stand A42/50) at 6 pm, Tuesday, October 4, and closes out the press-only day of the international motorcycle exhibition. 
     
After giving all the Ducatisti and motorcycle enthusiasts at WDW2016 an exclusive look at the SuperSport, the new sport road bike from the Bologna-based bike manufacturer is now ready for a wider audience.

The new SuperSport is a motorcycle for those eager to ride sport-style on everyday roads. Fun, versatile and accessible, with authentic Ducati sports styling and zest, the SuperSport promises exciting, fun riding sensations while ensuring everyday comfort and easy handling for any road. An innovative leap that, even before its debut, has won widespread support and aroused considerable interest; at Cologne, the SuperSport is set to steal the show.

INTERMOT also provides an excellent opportunity to enjoy an international preview of other models in the Ducati 2017 range. Like the Multistrada 1200 S, sporting a new stylish "Volcano Grey" colorway and practical technical upgrades. For 2017 the Multistrada 1200 family features a new airbox in the intake zone and new engine calibration; these changes give the twin-cylinder Testastretta DVT even fuller, more satisfying mid-range power delivery (see the new video at http://www.ducati.com).

At INTERMOT Ducati will also be presenting the new EURO 4 engines for the Monster 821 and Diavel. The Monster 821 range, also features new colorways with the appealing yet assertive “Dust Grey” color, a dark grey that offers a stark contrast yet perfectly matches the red frame and wheels.

Significant upgrades to the Ducati Superbike family have also been made, with the 1299 Panigale and 1299 Panigale S, seeing the introduction of the latest EVO version of Ducati Traction Control (DTC) and Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC). These systems were first seen on the exclusive 1299 Panigale S Anniversario and maximize the performance and active safety of this Ducati Superbike. The new DTC and DWC EVO feature a new algorithm that makes their intervention faster and more precise.

At INTERMOT Ducati will be in Hall 8 on Stand A42/50, together with Ducati Scrambler and its "Land of Joy", where events, entertainment and plenty of bikes, accessories and apparel will ensure visitors to this great biannual bike show get involved and have fun.
