The Ducati Supersport 1000 DS is a motorcyle which somewhere in the middle of being a sports bike and a tourer. It offers easy handling, and torquey power delivery which is only spoilt by jerky fuel injection at lower speeds.

The Supersport 1000 DS, is based around a signature Ducati trellis frame, and is powered by a 992 cc Dual Spark engine. The chassis is more than capable of coping with the 84 horsepower output of the engine and is one of the highlights of the bike.

Suspension is provided by fully-adjustable, lightweight, 43 mm, Showa front forks and an exclusive Öhlins fully-adjustable rear shock.

The Ducati SuperSport DS is not the cheapest motorcycle to run, and requires a pricey cambelt change every two years or 12,000 miles. Resale values are low too, meaning its cheap to buy a second hand one, just don't expect it to hold its value.
