Hi all, The Super Sport is on my short list for my next bike. I have a question that i hope some one on the forum can answer. On Ducati's web site they claim the bike has 113 hp measured on a Chassis dyno. Is this measurement at the back wheel or the engine?
Thanks in advance.

On the engine, as every brand do to sell their bike.

You'll lose some at the wheel, but the torque will still be there !

Fully research this bike and visit all the threads and forums before purchasing.

Also, if possible, go to a dealer and look at one in person hand on. Sit on it, look it over, get a feel for it.

Make a completely informed purchase.

Although I purchased the bike sight unseen within hours after the bike was announced last year (not usual for me!), and couldn't be more pleased, we all have different preferences so ride one!!!

I agree with the other comments, test ride one, it's not a super smooth characterless in line four, so feel ot try it perhaps (as I do ) love it. Then buy it.............

As soon as my buddy told me about the bike, I went onto the ducati website and signed up for a demo ride. A local dealer reached out a week later and I was able to schedule a demo ride. It's worth doing for any new bike you may be purchasing.

My guess is that its at the rear wheel. Bear in mind bologna is -6ft altitude. I had mine dyno'd with the stock exhaust yesterday and at +4350ft above sea level my result was 102.4HP max power @8250 RPM. The book states 113hp @ 9000rpm.

That is actually pretty good. Most bikes have about a 15-20% loss - crankcase v. rear wheel.

@rz33v4 Well I think you all have your theories. the book states 113, I got 102. I live 4350ft above sea level. So where is my chain losses of 10%. As mentioned, with my other bikes I lose 15-20% on hp compared to the air density at the coast (same chain). This bike has lost 10% off the book.
Frankly you need to provide more credible evidence that a chain drops 10% of the hp. FACT FACTS FACTS!!!!!!
