2016 - 2018 Ducati Hypermotard 939

The Hooligan Bike You Always Wanted

Ducati updated its Hypermotard for the 2016 model year and carried that forward to 2018. Fairly fresh off a revamp in ’13, the new Hypermotard variant brings Ducati’s EURO 4-emissions compliant Testastretta to the range along with its increased, 937 cc displacement and 113-pony output. The factory also padded the range with a MotoGP-liveried, 939 SP that sports top-shelf racing suspension and is generally skewed toward track work, or riders who wish they were doing track work. Both rides benefit from Ducati’s rider-safety technology with onboard traction control, ABS and the like. Good thing too, since this is exactly the kind of bike that will allow you to get in trouble all three ways: quick, fast, and in-a-hurry.

2012 Ducati Hypermotard 796

2012 Ducati Hypermotard 796

The 2012 Ducati Hypermotard 796 was created to dominate the road. The bike features an aggressive design which is combined with a host of modern technologies and a fairly capable engine. All these features make it one of the most attractive naked bikes in its segment.

Its engine has na 803cc displacement, is air cooled and delivers a maximum power of 81hp (59.6kW) @ 8000rpm and 55.7lb-ft (7.7kgm) of torque at 6250rpm. This massive power is sent to the rear wheel through a six speed gearbox which is combined with the APTC ‘wet’ clutch. This advanced clutch prevents destabilizing of the rear-end under aggressive down-shifting and also gives the extra benefit of a super-light feel at the lever.

The motorcycle is also fitted with a modern 2-1-2 catalytic exhaust system which uses an efficient pre-silencer configuration with twin lambda probes which help the bike conform to the Euro 3 emission standards.

2012 Ducati Hypermotard 1100 EVO

2012 Ducati Hypermotard 1100 EVO

When it comes to the Hypermotard 1100 EVO, Ducati has adhered to a tried-and-tested formula grounded on minimalism and functionality.

The Hypermotard’s unique and innovative design stands out head and shoulders above the competition, highlighted by a distinctive beak that blends into the stylish headlamp fairing, making it an instantly recognizable bike. Couple that with a carefully shaped tank that tapers into a skinny waistline and you have a bike that looks and feels like a proven winner.

When the bike was first shown in concept guise at the 2005 Milan Bike Show, it represented the creation of a new segment that bridged the gap between refined sportbikes and minimalist supermotards. Despite initial reservations on the look of the bike, Ducati signed off on the production of the Hypermotard, driven by the belief in the upright and in-control riding position of a dirtbike, but not the harsh characteristics of its single cylinder engine.

In the end, the Hypermotard has proven to be a popular choice among Ducati aficionados. From the sturdy look of the Marzocchi front forks to the Ducati signature single-sided swingarm and underseat exhausts, the Hypermotard’s design remains unique and pure Ducati.

The result is a bike that’s not only easy to handle, but also offers unbelievable agility, incredibly sure-footed handing, and a flexible engine that can tackle any road.

2012 Ducati Hypermotard 1100 EVO SP

2012 Ducati Hypermotard 1100 EVO SP

From a concept bike that wasn’t initially well received, the Ducati Hypermotard has evolved into a really special machine, spawning the 1100 EVOSP Corse Edition that injects some real racing fervor into the Hypermotard concept. With a higher ground clearance than the standard model, a top-spec suspension, higher bars, and the aggressive Corse colour scheme, the Hypermotard 1100 EVO SP is ready to rip up the racetrack in an instant.

The Hypermotard concept created an innovative segment that bridged the gap between hyper-sports bikes and supermotards. In essence, it took the high speed handling and smooth engine from a hyper-sport bike and combined it with the aggressive styling, lightweight minimalism, and slow corner precision of a supermotard.

Whereas the Hypermotard created a new market unto itself, the 1100 EVO SP has taken that concept and given birth to a true favorite among extreme riders. With those people looking for a bike that provided extra beef and more functionality, especially in extreme conditions, the Hypermotard 1100 EVO SP offers plenty of riding characteristics that extreme riders enjoy.

The combination of a 1100 L-Twin engine with an improved chassis are only two of the most important traits of this bike. It’s no wonder that Ducati has made this bike one of the most important in its roster. Not only has it morphed into a true prized ride, it has also turned the attention of those that had initial skepticism about it. In the end, the Hypermotard 1100 EVO SP has become a true extreme wonder bike, and in so doing, has given Ducati enthusiasts even more reason to love the brand.

Tom Cruise's 'Knight and Day' Ducati spied

Tom Cruise’s ’Knight and Day’ Ducati spied

Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz are both stars in the new "Knight and Day" movie, released on June 23rd. But next to them there is another star: a Ducati Hypermotard, that is in fact an Aprilia SXV550 in disguise. Wait, what?

Aprilia is being used as a stunt bike, while Ducatti is used for low-speed rides. And how the Hypermotard is just to heavy and too fragile to pull off the stunts, the team opted to an Aprilia. So why hiding an Aprilia under a Ducatti skin? Maybe because Cruise really wanted to drive a Ducatti in the movie, who knows!

2010 Ducati Hypermotard 796

After being launched last autumn at the EICMA Show in Milan as a middleweight super motard, Ducati’s all-new Hypermotard 796 turns out being, as expected, a smaller and much more versatile twin-cylinder Italian motorcycle with sportbike credentials and very aggressive looks. Let’s see what more.

Behind the scenes: Ducati’s great video ads

Ever wondered how official motorcycle videos are made? We did too and came to find that it is a great deal of work now that Ducati released the backstage videos for two of their 2010 models, the Ducati 1198 and Ducati Hypermotard 1100.

Remember that these are professional riders performing on closed courses and there’s still a great deal of risk for the guys with the cameras as they are often filming/photographing skids and slides with themselves as targets. Follow the jump to see how the Italians from Ducati make their motorcycle videos.

Video: 2010 Ducati Hypermotard 796

Ducati recently made public the video for the 2010 Hypermotard 796 and we have to say that it doesn’t manage to start our interest as much as it could considering the 81hp and 55.7lb/ft of engine performance on a motorcycle that weighs only 368 pounds. This should translate in never ending wheelies, skids and burnouts, but we don’t see much of that happening during what appears to be a relaxed Sunday ride. The bikes look great though and the relaxing music kind of takes our minds away from the “professional rider on a closed course” kind of action.

Close Up 2010 Ducati Stradaperta spy shots

Close Up 2010 Ducati Stradaperta spy shots

The motorcycle press is restless in speculating about the upcoming Ducati Stradaperta or “the next Hypermotard” and the abundance of spy shots does help at maintaining people’s awareness in what this model is concerned until it is finally unveiled at the EICMA show in Milan this November.

These are probably the best spy shots ever and they reveal an entirely digital dash (we hope that GPS will carry on the production bike) as well as Hypermotard features such as the signal lights integrated into the hand-guards, just to mention a nice detail that caught our attention. Still, most of the bike is covered in tape, but that doesn’t stop us from imagining the beautiful Italian curves underneath. We’re just glad the angry face was kept and can’t wait for the official unveiling.

Ducati to unveil 2010 Hypermotard 796

Ducati to unveil 2010 Hypermotard 796

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.

Drawing inspiration from the current 1100/1100S Hypermotards, the new model should be a much lighter and very nimble motorcycle capable of performing well both during urban adventures and track riding sessions alike. The engine should be tuned for more low-to-mid rpm power and that always gives riders a rush. Still, we should wait until Ducati finally releases some official info about this model. To be continued…

Ducati Hypermotard as Mototerminators

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. Yet, the answer was always there only that we couldn’t pass over the Ducati’s impeccable finishing and spot the very essence of the bike.

Ducati Hypermotard and Multistrada now in white

Ducati Hypermotard and Multistrada now in white

Ducati introduces the pearl white color for the Hypermotard and Multistrada motorcycles. These two models are latest to receive the now famous Ducati color which has already made the Ducati 848 and Ducati 696 sell with even greater success.

The fiery Red Ducati color will only cover the frame while the new carbon-grey finish is applied to the outer engine castings of the simple Hypermotard 1100.

On the Multistrada 1100, only the “S” will feature the Ducati pearl white livery. The new shade contrasts with the frame’s racing grey and with the racing-like carbon-fiber components which are present on this model, making it as classy as it is sporty.

Ducati plans on presenting the two models at the International Motorcycle Show in Cologne (October), even though they will start being sold this month.

Hypermotard vs Caterham, just for the hell of it!

Hypermotard vs Caterham, just for the hell of it!

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.
