A Supersport in '07? I wasn't aware of that. Apparently I missed one of those 5 yrs. I'd like to believe that what you say about Ducati is true but I don't Ducati thinks that.

I don't know, it's from Wikipedia. Maybe they made them for some other market in '07.

I thought they stopped with the '06 SS1000DS and 800 SS. But, I went to Wikepedia too and they said they were brought into the US in "limited quantities." I wonder if anyone here has one?

I wonder if the person(s) who wrote that Wiki are on this message board.

If Ducati ever made a new Supersport I wonder if a liquid cooled 3V would be even better than the air cooled motor? Anyone have any opinions/knowledge about that kind of configuration?

You mean like an ST3? Hasn't someone put one of those motors into a Supersport chassis before?

Probably where I got the idea. If someone did that I wonder how it worked?

I think Ducati imported a bunch of SS1000DS's into the US as race-only bikes in 2007. Think the 800SS was still being produced then as well...
