Thanks

Not specifically for the ss, but i bet one of the patterns would fit close enough, especially with trimming.

Techspec DUCATI Gripster Tank Grips

I've never used this vendor before, so i can't say if they're good.

Just because it doesn't make sense, doesn't mean somebody didn't decide to do it that way.

Are you talking about TechSpec or Stompgrip?

I've used Tech Spec grips on my K1200S tank, and was pleased with the result.

But perhaps someone might be aware of a company that is making them specifically for the SS.

One of the guys i rode down to ducati island with had what looked like the stompgrip in clear on his 1198.

We have an order coming in from R&G EaziGrip. Unlike other tank grips which are known to wear out your gear over time (lots of complaints about this with Techspec) the EaziGrip's have a stickers material which is super friendly with your gear.

Furthermore, these grips are highly popular with the Panigale riders, since the shape of the tank is more complex than other bikes out there, and usually thicker grips have a hard time following the beautiful contours of the tank. Supersport's tank is no different to this, since it has the curves and edges. The R&G EaziGrips are known to be highly formable to even the most complex tank shapes.

We do have one set available for the Supersport right now available for immediate shipment.

You can view them here : https://supersportcentral.com/collec...t-supersport-s

I haven't been able to add tank grips to my SS. It's just so pretty with its bare tank that I'll just keep sliding off the back during hard acceleration. It's what we do for those we love.

I'll add tank grips when i find a set that adds to the bikes appearance.

Stompgrip has clear ones. That's all I would consider. This bike is too d4mn sexy to cover it up with blackness.

With that said, IDK if Stompgrip has a bike specific set for the SS, yet.
