In 2021, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer launched the Ducati 950 RVE, a motorcycle part of the Borgo Panigale fun-bike family located between the entry-level Hypermotard 950 and the top-of-the-range Hypermotard 950 SP.
The SP version was characterized by a special Graffiti livery and stunning graphic design inspired by that of the Hypermotard 950 Concept model presented in 2019 at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este, which seemed like an airbrushed bodywork.
Besides the graphic design, the bike featured an upgraded package of electronic equipment that included the Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) UP and Down EVO system, added to the already present standard features, such as the Bosch Cornering ABS with Slide by Brake function, Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO, and Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO.
In the performance department, the 2021 Ducati 950 RVE had its soul brought to life by a 937cc four-stroke L-Twin cylinder liquid-cooled engine that delivered an output power of 114 hp with maximum strength at 9,000 rpm and 96 Nm (71 lb-ft) of torque available at 7,250 rpm.
The bike was designed to offer a high level of fun and control, with an aggressive design inspired by the motard look reflected in the twin exhaust system mounted under the seat and the visible components of the bike.
For North America, the bike was limited to 100 units, with a badge number that showed the corresponding unit, and deliveries started for $14,195.
