Over a period of years I've owned several Ducs, from the SS600 to a 999 and the last one I had before the Supersport was a 2014 Panigale. I've loved each of them for their own very different characteristics, from the "rattle" of the dry clutch models to the ferocity of the Panigale. After only a week as the proud new owner of a Supersport S (white), I have to say that this is by far the nicest Ducati I've ever ridden. As a riding instructor, my bike is my tool of trade and I commute almost 7 days per week (I own the business, so I don't get too many days off!!), and I find the ergonomics of the S and the seat height to be absolutely perfect for an everyday bike, and at the same time it has maintained its sporty characteristics. I predict that the Supersport will prove to be one of the most popular Ducati models of all time, as it has really filled a gap in the market place and in the Ducati range. Well done Ducati - you've certainly kept this rider extremely happy for many years and hopefully for many more to come:smile2::smile2::smile2::smile2:

It's the best Ducati I've ever ridden, mind you I've only ridden two.....

But it's great to hear your thoughts, you're obviously a well experienced guy, great comments.

This statement alone carries a ton of weight for me. I've been riding for 28 years and feel like I know a lot about it. I've experienced every high and every low, every euphoric ride and every oh sh!t moment...even trashed a few, and seen friends lie dead on the side of the road...a true been there done that life on the back of a motorcycle. To me, teaching someone how to ride and what to expect is a whole 'nuther level. Most of us have learned motorcycling via the school of hard knocks, but I'm glad there are folks like you out there to help the uninformed and novices. You, Sir, are probably saving lives you don't even know about each and every day....just so those people don't have to learn via the school we did!

Good on ya...keep it up.

I'm far less experienced, but is reassuring to hear from someone so well informed. Thanks for the comments!
