Ducati’s Stefano Sbettega Discusses The New Hypermotard Range

Ducati North America marketing boss Stefano Sbettega described to us the new Hypermotard/Hyperstrada line-up at the recent Long Beach Motorcycle Show. These 821cc liquid-cooled supermotos offer 110 horsepower in a lightweight, upright package. We made Stefano promise MD could test one soon. Stefano’s heavy accent and soft voice make headset listening preferable.

    Damn! Still a gallon short on fuel capacity. No air cooler. Be nice to see one before they’re no more.

    MD, please transcribe to text! I’d rather read anyway, even if it was easier to hear/understand.

      EXACTLY! – I can read it before it downloads.

      The Hyperstrada is a step in the right direction for me! Upright ergos, light weight and sporty handling! but….and its a big but – The KTM SMT is a 990 for the same money.

    Hyperstrada, where is your electronic cruise control?
