Ducati introduced an all-new Hypermotard range in Milan, including the standard Hypermotard, the Hypermotard SP, and the Hyperstrada, a version designed for touring.
Each of these new models is powered by an 821cc liquid cooled Testastretta engine, moving away from air cooled technology for this range. Each of the bikes features ride-by-wire and three, selectable power modes ranging from full power (110 hp) down to 74 hp for low traction conditions. Each of the models also receives ABS and traction control.
While the base model Hypermotard features limited suspension adjustability, the Hypermotard SP gets uprated, fully adjustable Marzocchi forks and Ohlins shock. The SP also has trick forged Marchesini wheels. The SP has other upgrades as well, including a radial brake master cylinder controlling the front Brembos.
Both the Hypermotard and Hypermotard SP receive new ergonomics for a more upright, dirtbike-like riding position. The base model is available for a U.S. MSRP of $11,995, which the SP goes for $14,695.
Finally, the new Hypermotard family welcomes the Hyperstrada, tweaked for improved touring capability. Among other features, the Hyperstrada gets improved wind protection, a center stand, power outlets and saddlebags. The Hyperstrada’s riding position is even more upright than the Hypermotard’s. The Hyperstrada carries a U.S. MSRP of $13,295. Take a look at Ducati’s web site for additional details.
