I noticed that the Ducati tech specs for the Supersport chart doesn't match the number for the torque.

The chart looks like it hits 78/79 range, but the official number is 71.3 ft. lb.

I can't explain the difference you cite, but I think you should be paying more attention to 1), how flat the torque curve is and 2), that it peaks at only 6500 RPMs. That is why this bike feels so strong in the mid-range. This is what you do when you want good street bike performance.

Yeah, I think the torque is fine. I'm just wondering what the real number is. I guess the paragraph under the chart explains it...if you go to the webpage: "The power values indicated above are measured using a chassis dynamometer. Homologated power data, as quoted in the Bike Registration Document, are measured using an engine dynamometer according to the homologation regulation. The two power values may differ because of the different measurement equipments."

Thanks for pointing that out, seems none of us noticed. But I can tell you that the flat-ish torque curve is fun. Really enjoy flicking through the quickshifter whilst in the break-in 6000rpm. Loving it.>:)

Well.... that sums it up right there it seems haha. You could always take yours out to a dyno to see exactly what yours makes and compare?

Another point could be the non catalytic converter pipes, namely the under tail akra's. They present 5% performance improvement compared to the 13kg box we are dragging around under our feet.

They are telling you that in the hope that you will understand that dynamometer readings will vary according to the brand of dyno, the operator, even the country that the dyno is programmed for. The general public has not been able to accept this fact and that is why the manufacturers are now including that disclaimer.

As pointed out already, the significant data is the curve parameters.

Numbers in chart are only in HP for power (in white on the right) and in kg/m for torque (in gray 8,9,10 on the right).
No kW or lb/ft in chart :wink2:
