Ducati recently confirmed that a mid-sized Hypermotard is on the way and – according to MCN – it will be unveiled next week. The entirely new bike is supposed to be powered by the 696cc air-cooled V-twin currently found on the middleweight Monster , but nothing is sure until Ducati takes the wraps off the new model next weekend.

We’ve long been craving to find which specific motorcycle could have possibly met the demands necessary to shoot the kind of action footage used for Terminator Salvation and not in a thousand years would the Ducati Hypermotard 1100 have emerged from our apocalyptic images-intoxicated brains.

We’ve come across this video which is all about the never ending fight between a four wheel and a two wheel machine. With this occasion, the new Caterham R500 with its 263 hp and 506 kg challenges the Ducati Hypermotard 1100 S having 95 hp and under 180 kg.
You don’t have to blink too much in order to see that it is all about the spectacle. Skids, takeovers, you name it, you have it. I personally like the ironic ending although I was supporting the Ducati.
Check out this video in which Ernie Vigil is riding the Ducati Hypermotard 1100 like no other stunt rider has ever did. The riding and filming are both excellent and it actually makes you feel like you’re there except the smell of the burned rubber which doesn’t reach your motorcyclist nose.
