Ducati Hypermotard 950 Latest Updates

The Ducati Hypermotard 950 and the top-spec Hypermotard 950 SP will replace the Ducati Hypermotard 939 as the supermoto in Ducati India’s motorcycle line-up. The Hypermotard 950 offers a unique proposition, with the ergonomics and chassis of a dirt-focussed bike, but the performance and capability of a sportbike. The new Hypermotard 950 is a fun to ride motorcycle, with hooligan traits which will reward the rider with advanced skills and experience.

The Ducati Hypermotard 950 offers a unique proposition in the world of performance bikes. A supermoto, with the upright ergonomics and chassis of a dirt bike, but with the performance and handling of a sportbike, the Hypermotard 950 replaces the Ducati Hypermotard 939. The Hypermotard 950 is an all-new bike with a new engine, new chassis and suspension and updated electronics package. The Hypermotard 950 will be available in two variants – the standard Hypermotard 950 and the Hypermotard 950 SP with Ohlins suspension, lighter Marchesini forged wheels and a standard up/down quickshifter. The SP variant gets a taller seat and overall its lighter by 2 kg and tips the scales at 198 kg kerb weight.

The Ducati Hypermotard 950 gets an all-new 937 cc, Testastretta L-twin engine which puts out 114 bhp at 9,000 rpm, and now gets a new torque curve which spreads it out, with 80 per cent of the torque available at between 3,000 and 9500 rpm, with 96 Nm peaking at 7,250 rpm. That results in a lot of pulling power across the entire rev range. There’s also a completely new electronics suite with a six-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU) that offers cornering ABS, slide by brake as well as wheelie control.

The Ducati Hypermotard 950 has a focussed purpose and is meant for riders with experience and skills to explore the unique proposition it offers. Its best enjoyed within the city, and can be quite the beast around a racetrack too, with riders with advanced skills. From an Indian perspective, the Hypermotard 950 will be a very capable and fun machine, providing adrenaline-pumping excitement, rather than being a primary, do-it-all motorcycle. But nevertheless, it is one exciting package, and will certainly reward riders with experience and skill.
