Ducati has confirmed that they will be unveiling the highly-anticipated new SuperSport on Tuesday, October 4, at the INTERMOT show in Germany. The last time Ducati had a SuperSport in its lineup was 2006, when the dual-spark 1000DS quietly disappeared from dealer showrooms.

Ducati has promised the new iteration of the SuperSport will be “fun, versatile and accessible, with authentic Ducati sports styling and zest” with “everyday comfort and easy handling.” We’ll have more details when the bike is unveiled next week.

Several other models are set to receive updates as well. The Multistrada 1200 S will get a new airbox and engine tweaks for more mid-range power, as well as a new “Volcano Gray” color scheme.

Lastly, the Panigale family of superbikes will receive the latest EVO version of Ducati Traction Control (DTC) and Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC), with a new algorithm that initiates the systems more quickly and with more precision.
