There’s a certain romance in having a sporty motorcycle comfortable enough to ride the long way to a racetrack, participate in a trackday, then bee-line back home on after (or continue taking the long way, if you’re hardy). In reality, true sportbikes are terrible streetbikes – and even worse touring bikes. Conversely, a sport-touring bike is great at taking the long way to the track – and some are even respectable on said track – but ultimately leave something to be desired when the pace wicks up.
Splitting those differences are the motorcycles we have here: the 2021 Aprilia RS660 and Ducati Supersport 950 S. Sporty in nature and design but with a nod towards creature comforts, both Aprilia and Ducati are rethinking sportbikes for the more sensible among us. Outward appearances would tell you both bikes are in for a good time carving corners, but when you peel back the curtains (or fairings in this case), what lies underneath is what happens when people who don’t have professional racing contracts realize piloting 200-plus horsepower superbikes is downright scary and exhausting.
