The fun bikes to power! Ducati Hypermotard, Hypermotard SP and Hyperstrada 2016

With the mission of complying with the Euro 4 regulations, Ducati's Hyper range is renewed and they go on to equip a remodeled propeller that complies with the new emission restrictions. The engine is still very similar with its 90 degree vee twin-cylinder structure, but it leaves behind 821 cc to now cubic 937 cc thanks to wider cylinders.

The maximum power of the Testastretta 11 ° is increased in three horses compared to the internal model and increases the maximum torque by 10%. The exhaust system has also now been redesigned to help pass the new requirements successfully, but aesthetically there are not many more changes. The interesting thing is inside.

Ducati Hypermotard 939

It has been two years since we tested the second generation of Hypermotard with the 821 cc engine, now we find a very similar Ducati Hypermotard 939 but with an even better engine, the fun at its controls has not had to decline one iota.

Few things change apart from its engine mounted on its steel multitubular chassis and that equips the usual Ducati Safety Pack (ABS with three levels, eight levels of traction control, three driving modes) although revised for the occasion. Its aesthetic is very similar and you would have to be a lynx to notice the subtle changes.

There will be two decorations to choose from white or red bodywork, but both with the chassis painted in red. Very classic, but a safe bet that always attracts attention.

The front end of the Hypermotard 939 uses a 43 mm fork diameter signed by Kayaba With 170 millimeters of travel and for the rear axle, it is a Sachs monoshock with a travel of 150 millimeters in charge of keeping the rear wheel glued to the ground. Contact with the asphalt is made through a Pirelli Diablo Rosso II equipped as standard.

For its part, the scale tells us that the dry weight is 181 kg. A motorcycle that feels especially light thanks to its elevated riding position 850 mm from the ground. To get it you will have to pay 12,990 euros.

Going one step further, the Ducati Hypermotard 939 SP It stands out from its common siblings with a war paint inspired by the Corse department, and not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but the SP uses a series of high-performance parts in carbon fiber and magnesium that lower its weight down to the 178 kg.

The suspensions are replaced on both trains by Swedish material, a 50 mm diameter fork (185 mm of travel) is used at the front and a fully adjustable monoshock (175 mm of travel) at the rear, both signed by Öhlins.
