Regular maintenance for the 2017-2018 Ducati Supersport S
This is maintenance that you can do yourself (though the manual says you need a dealer to do it).
Using the motorcycle under extreme conditions, such as very damp and muddy roads or dusty and dry environment, could cause above-average wear of components like the drive system, the brakes or the air filter. If the air filter is dirty, the engine could get damaged. Therefore, this might translate in required service or replacement of the wear parts earlier than specified in the scheduled maintenance chart.
Every 1000 km/600 miles miles OR 6 months (whichever comes earlier, perform the following maintenance:
|Check the engine oil level|
|Check brake fluid level|
|Check tyre pressure and wear|
|Check the drive chain tension and lubrication|
|Check the brake pads. If necessary, contact your dealer to replace pads|

General Information on the 2017-2018 Ducati Supersport S
The SuperSport is built around the 937 cc 90-degree twin found in other Ducatis but redesigned and retuned for use in this new model. Ducati claims 113 horsepower at 9,000 rpm and 71.3 foot-pounds of torque at 6,500, so the power is more accessible at street speeds than track-focused bikes that want to be revved to five-digit engine speeds.
There are only a few differences between the base SuperSport and the S model. Power, weight (claimed 463 pounds ready to ride), brakes and dimensions are the same. With the S you get Öhlins suspension front and rear, with a 48 mm inverted fork and monoshock, both fully adjustable. On the base model, you get a 43 mm Marzocchi fork and a Sachs rear shock. The S also comes with DQS, Ducati’s quick shifter, which allows clutchless up- and downshifts.
