When the Ducati Hypermotard was unveiled at the 2005 EICMA in Milan, it won best of the show.
The supermoto-styled machine had Ducati’s popular formula - high horespower from the 1078cc air-cooled, two-valve L-Twin, combined with lowe weight of just under 400 lbs.
The bike, which had its first model year in 2007, was a huge hit for Ducati. The bike remained relatively unchanged through 2012, except for Ducati offering a 796 version from 2009 on and the 1100EVO.
But Ducati has totally revised the Hypermotard for 2013, offering the bike in three versions that all feature a brand new 821cc Testastretta 11-degree engine - the Hypermotard, the Hypermotard SP and the mid-range tourer, the Hyperstrada. Dropped from the Hypermotard line is the 1100EVO.
The 110-horsepower 821cc engine is a totally new design that doesn’t need valve checks until 18,641 miles (30,000 kilometers). In addition to a new engine, the 2013 Ducati Hypermotard lineup includes the Ducati Safety Package of three-level ABS, eight-level Ducati Traction Control, and integrated Riding Modes.
High ground-clearance combined with a thin waistline and commanding riding positions gives the rider an instant Supermotard feeling, with the added luxury of latest street bike comfort and component quality. While the Hyperstrada is ideal for dominating the every-day urban or long distance commute, the Hypermotard and track-ready Hypermotard SP are intended for the extreme rider who demands the very highest performance.
The new range takes the Hypermotard concept into the future with refined design and user-friendly technologies that will enhance its enjoyment to a wider range of riders.
