The new Hypermotard offers all the power of a new generation 110 HP Testastretta 11° engine with the advanced technology of Riding Modes, Power Modes and the Ducati Safety Pack. Don’t put the brakes on your energy: total control and extreme versatility allow you to attack any road in Hyper style.

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.

The new generation of Ducati Hypermotards joins the motorbike panorama with a model designed and built with particular care and individuality. It is characterised by the new 110 hp water-cooled engine and a range of ergonomic and functional improvements which add tremendous versatility to the extreme and minimalist look. An ideal entry-level model in this fantastic range, the Hypermotard offers the Ducati Sport Riding Mode in combination with the Ducati Safety Pack including ABS and DTC, presenting itself as an extraordinarily fun bike for daily use that is particularly suited for short and mid-range journeys.

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.

Power modes

The Ride-by-Wire system, which is present on all the models in the Hypermotard family, allows 3 different engine mappings to be used to control torque and power:

  • 110 hp with sporting “HIGH” torque
  • 110 hp with progressive “MEDIUM” torque
  • 75 hp with progressive “LOW” torque

The structural features of the new 821 cc Testastretta 11° engine, together with the use of the Ride-by-Wire system which controls the opening of the butterfly valves on the basis of the input received, are the starting point in obtaining the Riding Modes for the new Hypermotard models. Each Riding Mode has a preset engine mapping, but can be adjusted and customised to suit rider needs.

Exhaust system

The 2-1 exhaust system has been completely redesigned with 50 mm exhaust headers and valves which flow into the new single silencer made with a very compact, high absorption technology with a black finish and stainless steel rear frame. The system includes a catalytic converter and two lambda sensors, to guarantee complete compliance with Euro 3 regulations.

APTC clutch

The new engine is equipped with an APTC oil bath clutch with ‘slipper’ function which can be activated with reduced force on the lever. Its design uses a progressive self-servo system with plates with a high wear coefficient and this increases the torque available, with all other factors being constant, and hence reduces clutch spring loading and, ultimately, loading on the lever. All the models are now equipped with cable-clutch control; this has proven the best solution for this application in terms of build simplicity. The slipper function intervenes when the drive force is reversed and reduces the pressure on the clutch discs and so enables the vehicle’s stability to be maintained during aggressive changes typical in sports riding.

Service interval of 30.000 km

Thanks to the constant investment by Ducati in quality and reliability, the new 821 cc Testastretta 11° engine has enabled further progress in maintenance planning: valve adjustment is now scheduled for every 30.000 km which is a great advantage for Ducati customers.

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.

Ergonomics

The Hypermotard guarantees a dominant riding position thanks to handlebars that have been shifted further forwards and upwards compared to the previous version, and footplates that are positioned further forward to guarantee maximum comfort. The seat height of 870 mm can be reduced to 850 mm by choosing the low seat option from the Ducati Performance catalogue.

New fuel tank

The fuel tank in the new Hypermotard family has been completely redesigned and its capacity increased to 16 litres (4.6 litres more than the previous models), guaranteeing a greater range without affecting the bike’s fundamental and sinuous lines.

Bosch-Brembo braking system

The front braking system features a pair of the new double Brembo M4.32 monobloc 4-piston radial callipers, which are activated by the brake master cylinder with its 4-position adjustable lever on the Hypermotard and Hyperstrada and by the radial brake master cylinder with an adjustable 5-position lever on the SP model. The front discs are 320 mm, while on the rear there is a single 245 mm disc with a single Brembo calliper. All the new Hypermotard models are also equipped with the new multilevel Bosch 9MP ABS as standard that make braking safe and effective in any road conditions. This component ensures optimum braking performance in the sector, a typical feature of every Ducati.

Sachs Monoshock

The rear suspension includes a Sachs monoshock with adjustable extension and preload, which allows rear wheel travel of 150 mm

Single-sided swingarm

The rear suspension of the new Hypermotard family relies on the exclusive die-cast aluminium single-sided swingarm, which has been specially designed to provide strength and guarantee excellent control of the rear axle. This elegant mechanical solution helps emphasise the bold and sporty character of the new models.
