Ducati Hypermotard: What’s new?

Ducati’s Hypermotard is one of the most beastly motorcycles to roll out of the Borgo Panigale factory. The company claims that the exterior design of its new Hypermotard 950 RVE and SP is ‘inspired by the look of motards’. The design of the new Hypermotard continues to revolve around the twin under-seat exhaust and the reduced superstructures that contribute to its completely naked look. At the heart of the new Hypermotard sits a 937 cc Ducati Testastretta 11° twin-cylinder engine.

The powertrain is now overhauled which has resulted in more power [4hp]and lighter engine weight [1.5 kg]. The full power output now stands 114 hp at 9,000 rpm which is backed with 96 Nm of peak torque at 7,250 rpm. The company claims that on the Hypermotard 950, 80% of the torque is already available at 3,000 rpm, with no less than 88% available between 5,000 to 9,000 rpm. The key electronics on the new Hypermotard 950 include its new ultra-modern Bosch 6-axis inertial platform along with Bosch Cornering ABS EVO (with Slide by Brake function) and Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO, which make up the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP), Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO and Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down EVO.
