The Hypermotard 1100 takes on urban canyons and attacks mountain curves with total abandon. Its purpose is single-minded: to thrill.
Its ‘motard’ styling and stance combine with Ducati’s ‘sportsbike’ smooth and powerful L-Twin engine to deliver the best of both these two motorcycling worlds. With a riding position to dominate, the exceptionally slim, compact and incredibly light Hypermotard is ready to take on every road with big-bore acceleration.
High performance starts with attitude and the Hypermotard packs the most aggressive attitude of the entire Ducati range. Reduced to its essentials, it’s an extreme performance, over-the-top motorcycle that’s just looking for action.
This bike offers what no supermotard can: speeds exceeding 200kph (125mph) on the race track, fuel injection, and over 95hp – all combined with Ducati’s unmistakeable passion for engineering a motorcycle that stands apart.
Bring on the curves, the bumps, and the unexpected
Riding the Hypermotard is road domination. Wide, tapered section handlebars transfer control of the tarmac to the rider and a full length seat design enables easy fore and aft movement – slide up front when entering the turns and then slide back for maximum traction on exit.
A rigidly triangulated Trellis frame and track-tested chassis geometry is matched with state-of-the-art suspension. Start off with the road-holding abilities of huge 50mm Marzocchi forks, gripped by a triple screw lower fork crown, then add a fully adjustable Sachs shock mounted to a stout single-sided swingarm. Light Marchesini wheels combine with twin radially mounted Brembo four piston callipers, gripping new lightweight 305mm twin discs up front, and a 245mm disc at the rear to add control to the thrilling package.
The new 1100 Desmo engine pumps out potent torque and horsepower that is smooth and linear. The lightweight, powerful engine is the result of more than three decades of Desmo two-valve development. One ride with the 1100 explains how it has charmed journalists worldwide into claiming it to be the perfect motorcycle engine. In keeping with its aggressive image, the Hypermotard engine sports a racing-style dry clutch.
First unveiled as a concept bike at the Milan show in November 2005, the Hypermotard was hailed an instant success winning the ‘Best of Show’ award from the Motorcycle Design Association just hours after being launched. Since then, motorcyclists from all over the world have been craving the arrival of the production version, and for good reason.
Taking the Supermotard concept and adding Ducati’s unmistakeable twin-cylinder smoothness and Superbike-quality handling, the Hypermotard achieves an incredible balance - one of the most extreme bikes of the entire Ducati range and a motorcycle that is fun, easy and thrilling to ride every day of the week.
