Ducati has now updated the Supersport for MY2021 and has now renamed it to Supersport 950.

Like we mentioned before, the Supersport 950's styling now looks more in line with the Italian marquee's other faired offerings, courtesy its Panigale V4 inspired styling.

Powering the 2021 Ducati Supersport 950 and 950S is the same 937cc L-twin engine which now complies with the stringent Euro 5 emission regulations.

Ducati has dusted off the familiar "SP" (Sport Production) suffix for the latest addition to its Panigale V4 sportsbike range, complete with features handed down from the top-of-the-line Superleggara V4 "hyperbike". A new full-LED headlamp, new side air vents a lower fairing that now extends to the side silencer are some of the key design updates. The S variant gets Ohlins suspension.

The aim of the Italian firm, in the looks department, has been to bring the Super Sport 950 in-line with its larger siblings, much like what it did with the V2 a year ago.

As for the suspension, the S version is fitted with Ohlins suspension as standard to make it more dynamic, while the standard version has Marzocchi front forks and Sachs rear shock.

Another inclusion is the Panigale V2 derived 4.3-inch TFT screen which is a significant upgrade over the unit found on the outgoing model.

First introduced on the Ducati 851, the "SP" moniker add-on has been revived for the 2021 Panigale range. This engine is now Euro 5 compliant and the transition has seen the bike's weight rise by 1kg to 210kg.

The mill comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and an STM EVO-SBK dry clutch, which gets a open carbon fiber cover. It also gets cornering ABS and "Ducati Traction Control EVO" (cornering traction control) and "Ducati Wheelie Control EVO" that also uses the IMU to manage the amount of front-wheel lift under hard acceleration.

Further, the "Race" riding mode on the V4 SP offers two distinct mappings, allowing the rider to have two different configurations to define the best set-up.

End-to-end encryption coming to Android phones, along with RCS messaging update
But as I mentioned above, the bigger news for privacy fans is in news that RCS in Messages will soon see end-to-end encryption. Essentially, RCS seeks to integrate features that have become standard in popular messaging apps like WhatsApp and Telegram.
