It gets a 50mm adjustable USD fork and the rear monoshock is preload as well as rebound adjustable. Helping the motorcycle come to a halt are dual 320mm discs with Brembo M4.32 radial calipers at the front and a 265mm disc with Brembo caliper at the rear. 

Ducati is also likely to bring the S variant to India, which is expected to be Rs 1.5lakh to Rs 2 lakh more expensive than the standard variant. For the extra money, you get a top-spec, fully-adjustable Ohlins suspension, machined alloys and Brembo M50 monobloc brake calipers.
