Few but sufficient information provided to 'inside of a charming cube, on which walls were shown a video presentation. This was therefore a new segment for Ducati, which would be placed in the sports tourer visas the handlebars in a raised position and sitting comfort of Supersport.

Single-sided swingarm Ohlins components and complete the work while maintaining the racing Ducati style, although in reality it was a move that was not expected by the Borgo Panigale factory. The fairing of the plexiglass is easily adjustable in different positions without the need for tools, while as regards the motorization of WSS, it would be a two-cylinder 916cc erogante more than 110 horses.

Courtesy of A&R:

World Ducati Week is in full-swing right now, with Ducatisti from around the world gathering in Misano, Italy for two days of desmodromic fun.

Of the many attractions at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, Ducati is giving enthusiasts a chance to preview a new bike that will officially debut at the EICMA show in Milan (in addition to the two machines that will unveil tomorrow).

The affair is a strictly managed, no cellphones allowed, sort of sneak peak at the new machine – thus, it comes as no surprise that some fan has snapped a photo of the secret bike on a hidden phone. In case you were wondering, this is why we can’t have nice things.

You can’t put the cat back in the bag though, so get ready folks because we have good news: the Ducati SuperSport is coming back!

As you can see in the photo, the machine in question is called the Ducati Supersport S, an homage to the bikes of the same name that came almost 40 years before it.

The Ducati SuperSport S draws its lines from the Panigale, but it appears to be based off the Monster platform, with the trellis frame clearly visible.

We can also see what looks like a single-sided swingarm, Íhlins suspension, and lower spec Brembo calipers.

We would guess that the new Ducati Supersport S is based on the Monster 1200 chassis, judging from these elements, but the rumor in Misano is that the engine is displacing around 937cc, which may mean the 821-derived engine found on the Hypermotard 939.

We speculate on all this, as while I am personally at World Ducati Week right now, I have not been privy to seeing the machine in-person.

Regardless, the news should be exciting to long-time Ducatisti, who can remember venerable machines like the air-cooled two-valve Ducati 900 SuperSport SS.

Don’t let the name fool you, this was one of the original Sport-tourers (capital “S” / lowercase “t”) from Europe, and a popular machine for eating up miles of twisty road.

The motorcycle industry has moved away from bikes like the Ducati SuperSport line, so it is interesting to see Ducati reviving this idea. We would expect the ergonomics to be comfortable, the engine to be punchy, and of course the technology to be sophisticated.

Look for the Ducati SuperSport and SuperSport S to drop later this year, likely at the EICMA show in November, but possibly at INTERMOT in October.

If it IS what it seems, then I like it. A modern iteration of the 900SS would be an affordable and fun toy... Hopefully around 390 lbs wet...

The Scrambler they previewed at the previous WDW was near-identical to the production version, so other than the unrealistic, flying-buttress fairing connected to the tank on this thing, I'd imagine when it debuts it'll be pretty close to what we're seeing here.

That is one WIDE ass seat! Looks like they're definitely catering to the US market.

Can't tell if that's an exhaust outlet on the bottom or just a collector of some sort that feeds a right-side muffler. Would be surprised if they were able to meet emissions/sound without a full on can.
