    Hey everyone I hope I get to meet some people who owns a supersport 939 and we can share our experience and stories, in this thread. I still haven't got the bike delivered but I did complete the payment process today and went for a test ride, so I thought it would be good to create a thread for the owners.

    Let's talk about why I chose this bike. It's not my first bike, I own a Yamaha R15 v2, I loved how lightweight that bike was and how agile it was, I love full faired looks in a motorcycle but the riding posture of the bike was too aggressive. And I am a long tourer and riding it on long rides for a 6'1" person was a nightmare. Then I was looking at random bike videos on youtube when I came across the review of this ducati bike. I mean who doesn't love ducatis, right? but its usually the monsters or the panigale that are in the spotlight but goodness heaven this bike was a godsend for me. It tick all the boxes I want from a motorcycle.

    What I want from a motorcycle:
    • Power to cruise at 160-200kmph
    • Low end torque for high acceleration at high gears
    • Comfortable seat and riding posture for long rides
    • Lightweight
    • Rear set footpegs
    • Wind protection
    • Fairings

    What the supersport has? Everything. It's like Ducati read my mind and made it just for me. I know the power isn't as much as the similar priced sport touring bike Ninja 1000, but 110 bhp is plenty for india, i dont think I will ever use the whole of it anyway. And goodness does it look beautiful. This bike was the only bike that made me fall in love at first sight. I rode it today, and goodness does it handle so damn well and no pain in the wrist at all. I can ride all day long. The heat is an issue but it doesnt heat up like other liter bikes so its not unbearable with a thick jeans of riding pants. Its not even an issue if you are on the highways.

    Service intervals are very long, and the servicing is cheap (at least compared to cars, and I was a big car person). I am looking forward to riding it everyday. Its my commuter, my tourer, my love!

    PS When I looked at the bike at showroom I checked the clip on handlebars to see whether I can hang vegetable and groceries bag from them, since this baby is gonna be the do everything motorcycle for me.

    EDIT: After six months and taking it to the himalayas I decided to do an ownership review. I only talk about my experience with the bike as a daily driver so no spec sheet or anything. The language is explicit so watch at your own discretion.

          Congratulations!

          For one I'm glad because you seem to mean it when it comes to covering miles which is something I really wish to see cause these days there are too many SBK owners who buy a motorcycle just for the show of it.
          Motorcycling Experience:
          2000 ~ 2017 Y2K Kinetic Zoom (Disposed at 15k)
          2011 ~ 2015 Hero Honda Karizma R (Sold at 56.5k)
          2013 ~ 2014 Bajaj Discover 100 4G (Sold at 16.5k)
          2015 ~ 2017 TVS Wego (Totaled at 18k)

            Congratulations. You will best enjoy this bike on the track which is what it is specifically built for. Remember, with great power comes great responsibility. Ride safe

              Absolutely, buying a big machine to show off is just stupid. It's a machine meant to be ridden, so ride it like you'd ride any motorcycle. I'm looking forward to using it for commuting and weekend trips, from daily shopping to dropping my family off and riding in the mountains. It was meant for commuting hence the less power and relaced posture.
              And thank you so much!!

                It's a sports tourer, not a track machine and no tracks anywhere I live. I'll be taking it to the himalayas though.

                  I guess you've confused this with the Panigale 959. The Panigale is meant for the tracks and this is a sports-tourer.

                      Sweeeet lookin’ motorcycle!! How good does it sound? And how much did it cost you?

                      PS. Italians are too good at styling their stuff.

                        They sure are! Cost around 14.37 on road, i added a few accessories which they will fit after the permanent reg. So its 14.57 for me. It sounds great, the signature L twin sound of ducati and damn does it gurgles and pops when you let go of the throttle. Reminds me of Jaguar XF! Got so much attention riding it home today XD
                        Absolutely love the 74Nm of torque at 3000rpm, it is addictive!

                          Sounds good. Don’t forget to add the frame sliders. And I hope you have invested in good riding gear as well.

                          Always wear your gear and ride safe out there \m/ Happy miles ahead.

                            Congratulations for the beautiful machine. Italians are definitely some of the best in design.
                            Had a chance to ride the panigale and this back to back and Maan! The supersport was way more comfortable and useable and much smoother . The L-twin was wonderful.
