The Hyperstrada extends the hypermotard concept to fascinating new horizons. ABS, DTC, windshield, side bags, dedicated ergonomics and a series of touring features offering a new riding experience for everyone who loves curves, even when they’re far away from home. Hyperstrada: broaden the horizons of your emotions.

The new Hypermotard family has done it again with the latest design which offers, as with the first version, a stunning looking bike that is a joy to ride.
The original dirtbike-inspired look has become even more daring thanks to the visibly higher ground clearance, the high and tapered tail and the narrow sides. These are the design elements that characterise the new version and which have been created for a motorbike that can be used for urban commuting, touring or for a thrilling day-out on the track.

Although maintaining the typical hand protectors of off-road models, the new Hypermotard offers redesigned rear-view mirrors in order to blend in perfectly with the model’s clean design and the need to use it in the city. The attention paid to the flow of the lines has allowed the essential and minimalist image of this family to be maintained, despite the complexity of integrating the new Ducati 821 cc Testastretta 11° water-cooled engine.

The new Hypermotard family therefore stands out because of its proportions, ergonomics and practicality, besides being equipped with the latest Ducati technology. While the Hypermotard and Hypermotard SP versions faithfully maintain an essential Supermotard look, the Hyperstrada model seems less extreme and has specific features aimed at touring.

Engine

The new Hypermotard family has left the 2-valve configuration behind to adopt a new 4-valve engine with a water-cooled cylinder, featuring a bore x stroke of 88 mm x 67.5 mm designed to achieve a perfect balance between usability and performance: this is the new 821 cc Testastretta 11° engine which provides maximum power of 110 hp @ 9,250 rpm and torque of 89 Nm @ 7,500 rpm.

The new Testastretta 11° adopts technical solutions which directly reflect Ducati’s engineering know-how and have led to the creation of an extremely fluid and stable engine: the 11° valve overlap confirms the excellent results obtained in the Multistrada 1200 family and improves the exhaust and intake stages with consequent steady operation at medium and low speeds.

The relocation of the fuel injectors, which was also applied to the engine of the new Multistrada 1200, aims the jet of fuel directly at the hotter rear end of the suction valve, so that all fuel is atomised; a secondary air system similar to that of the 1199 Panigale enables the engine’s operation to be optimised thanks to the controlled flow of oxygen which reduces cyclical combustion dispersion, thus effectively eliminating unburnt fuel. Ultimately, Ducati has managed to obtain a new engine that is extremely enjoyable, performs excellently and which can significantly limit emissions of unburnt fuel.

Chassis

The new Hypermotard family of bikes is equipped with a new tubular steel Trellis frame with 34 mm main section tubes, 25.5° rake, 104 mm trail and 30 mm offset, dimensions which allow steady and safe control without compromising the agility typical of this motorbike. The frame connects into the seat rail and, as in the new Multistrada 1200, includes an intermediate section in engineering polymer. A wide 70° steering angle allows great handling, while the wheel base has been increased to 1500 mm to maximise stability at high speeds.

Equipment

Designed for travel outside urban centres, Ducati has equipped the Hyperstrada with robust, semi-rigid side bags, but which are at the same time light and stylish. The bags have a capacity of 50 litres and can be easily removed, making them particularly convenient and practical.  The presence of a centre stand, on the other hand, increases the stability of the motorbike under full load. Special consideration has been given to riders who wish to share their travel experience with a passenger and a special wider seat has been built, with thicker foam support to increase comfort on long journeys. To this are added passenger grab handles that enable a wider and safer grip for excellent stability.
