Motorcycle Mojo rides the 2013 Ducati Hypermotard

February 28 2013

Costa Mouzouris has just returned from Spain, where he rode the redesigned Ducati Hypermotard.

The latest iteration of the Hypermotard, which was originally introduced in 2007, is completely redesigned. A liquid-cooled Testastretta engine replaces the air-cooled V-twin of the former bike.

It now displaces 821 cc, and is the only displacement available. Previously a 1,098 cc version and an 803 cc version were available. Also new is a redesigned chassis, with revised steering geometry that improves stability.

One of the biggest customer complaints of the previous model was the limited range the 12.4-litre fuel tank provided. Fuel capacity has been increased to 16 litres on the new machine.

Two versions are available; the $12,995 standard model, and the higher spec SP with upgraded suspension, lighter wheels and carbon fibre goodies for $15,695. Adjustable traction control and ABS are standard on both models.
