Ducati new-look SuperSport 950 S

 

By Jeff Gibbs

Ducati has introduced a new look for their entry-level sportsbike, the SuperSport 950 S. The “Stripe Livery” colour scheme has been revealed and will be available as an option alongside the traditional Ducati Red. The new livery was launched in European dealerships in June and is expected to reach Australia later this year, with orders already open.

The Stripe Livery features an Iceberg White base with coloured bands in grey and Ducati Red. These bands run from the front mudguard onto the fairing, with the upper Ducati Red stripe aligning with the red trellis frame of the SuperSport 950 S. The upper red band also showcases the “Supersport” name, while the grey band displays the “950 S” identification.

The visual distinctions that set the 950 S apart from the regular SuperSport 950, such as the pillion seat cover, bare metal lowers for the forks, and gloss black wheels with red “tags,” remain unchanged and will apply to both colour options for the higher-spec model. Design elements, including the Panigale V4-inspired headlights, also remain the same.

The upcoming SuperSport 950 S with the Stripe Livery is powered by a Testastretta 937cc twin-cylinder engine, delivering 81kW (110hp) at 9000rpm and 93Nm (69lb/ft) at 6500rpm. This liquid-cooled engine features Desmodromic technology and is paired with a six-speed gearbox equipped with a slipper clutch and Ducati Quick Shift up/down quickshifter.

In addition to the new colour scheme, the SuperSport 950 S boasts upgraded suspension. It replaces the Marzocchi/Sachs combination found on the regular 950 with fully-adjustable Öhlins units both at the front and rear.

Standard features of the SuperSport 950 S include 17-inch light alloy wheels, Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tires, Brembo brakes, Bosch Cornering ABS, a full-colour 4.3-inch TFT instrumentation, the Ducati Multimedia System, selectable power modes and riding modes, Ducati Traction Control EVO, Ducati Wheelie Control EVO, an anti-theft system, a 16-liter fuel tank, and a 810mm seat height.

The SuperSport 950 S is priced at $24,500 ride away, compared to the $21,900 ride away price of the SuperSport 950, primarily due to the inclusion of Öhlins equipment.

To obtain more information, confirm pricing, and place an order for the SuperSport 950 S in Stripe Livery prior to its local availability, customers are advised to contact their local Ducati dealer.

Horizon

 

There is a place between sea and sky – a sacred realm, where the sun rises and falls and the light is new.

From two of the world’s great First Nations comes a brand-new work: Horizon. Some call it a feeling, some call it the mother spirit. It’s the place where sea meets sky, the horizon we all look to, the compass that guides us home.

In Bangarra Dance Theatre’s first main stage cross-cultural collaboration, leading Māori choreographer Moss Te Ururangi Patterson joins beloved Bangarra alumna Deborah Brown. Together they guide the award-winning ensemble in stories that honour their mother countries and the spirit that calls them home.

Brown is a proud descendent of the Wakaid Clan and Meriam people in the Torres Strait, with heritage from far across the seas in Scotland. She carries strength and resilience from her ancestors. Patterson was born in Turangi near Lake Taupō, and describes the sense of home as something alive, that he carries like a beating heart.

To open the program, Saibailayg (Saibai Islander) Sani Townson expands his acclaimed work Kulka, debuted in Dance Clan in 2023, to make a thrilling opening piece paying homage to Sani’s grandfather and his Torres Strait heritage.

Come explore the cultural forces that bind us together, across oceans and eons. Experience the resilience of the First Peoples of the Oceania region, that extends across the continent now known as Australia, the Torres Strait Islands and Aotearoa, our southern neighbour.

Horizon is a double bill opening with Kulka by Bangarra alum Sani Townson, followed by the primary piece, The Light Inside, choreographed by Bangarra alum Deborah Brown and Māori choreographer and Arts Laureate Moss Te Ururangi Patterson.

EVENT DETAILS:

  • When – 8-17 of August
  • Where – QPAC
  • Price – from $59
  • TicketsAvailable here.

His debut album charted impressively on ARIA’s Top Vinyl Albums and Australian Country Albums, earning nominations at the ARIA Awards 2022 and CMAA Golden Guitar Awards 2023.
