On May 16, 2023, Ducati unveiled the 2024 SuperSport 950 S, which featured the new Stripe livery designed by the Centro Stile Ducati. While the overall structure and specifications of the motorcycle remained unchanged, contemporary styling elements were introduced to enhance its visual appeal.

The SuperSport 950 S with the Stripe livery primarily showcases an Iceberg White fairing. However, adding the distinctive red stripe and a thicker gray stripe underneath the red one sets it apart. These two colourful stripes are separated by a thin white line that matches the rest of the fairing.
The alignment of the red stripe is carefully executed so that it seamlessly merges with the peekaboo glimpse of the red frame located just behind the fairing. Similarly, the thicker grey stripe extends smoothly into the saddle, creating a bold diagonal line between the two elements.
This design approach aims to convey a sense of forward motion, especially when combined with the bottom of the fairing beneath the radiator and the pointed front cowl reminiscent of the Panigale. The overall effect is intended to create a visually dynamic and appealing motorcycle design.
The 2024 Ducati SuperSport 950 S with the new Stripe Livery is expected to be available in dealerships in the third quarter (Q3) of 2024. The starting price for this model in the United States will be $18,095, while it will be $20,395 in Canada.
The SuperSport 950 S has many features, including a fully adjustable Öhlins suspension setup, a pillion seat cover, and 17-inch wheels finished in Glossy Black with a Ducati Red tag. It is powered by Ducati’s 937cc Testastretta 11-degree twin-engine, producing 110 horsepower and 68.6 pound-feet of torque. The bike also features a six-speed gearbox with an up-and-down quickshifter and a slipper clutch.
Braking duties are handled by Brembo M4-32 monobloc four-piston callipers up front with two 320mm semi-floating brake discs, along with a single two-piston rear calliper and 245mm brake disc in the rear. Bosch Cornering ABS is standard for added safety.
Additional features of the SuperSport 950 S include a height-adjustable windscreen, a 4.3-inch full TFT display, three riding modes (Sport, Touring, and Urban), traction control, wheelie control, and a valve clearance adjustment interval of 30,000 kilometres or 18,000 miles. Recommended maintenance service intervals are every 15,000 kilometers/9,000 miles or once every 12 months.
Furthermore, Ducati offers a range of optional equipment that can be added to the SuperSport 950 S at the dealership.
